Something I love...


1. Bowl of clouds, 2. Funky Cloud Shadows and Rays, 3. Every cloud should have a silver lining, 4. Layers of Clouds, 5. Clouds on the lake 7-15-06, 6. Lonely Tree with Cloud and Dandelions, 7. refraction of clouds over my garden, 8. 31 days in May 30 , 9. Clouds and Tracks, 10. Blue Sky and Clouds, 11. Every Cloud Has A Silver Lining, 12. Clouds

Clouds are something I have always loved to watch. My favorite are the big puffy ones that roll through the sky on days when the sky is bright blue and the sun is almost blinding. In MN those days frequently happen when it's really cold out! But they happen in the warm months sometimes too. At my grandparents house I used to lay outside and watch the clouds. At home too, but we had a lot of really big trees so they were sometimes hard to see. The clouds are something I look forward to in the spring. Tomorrow it's supposed to get up to 35˚. The 10 day forecast is looking good right now with warmer temps and sunshine! I can't wait! I'm tired of wearing a coat. I'm tired of gray and brown in the sky and landscape. I'm tired of being cooped up in the house. I know we can play outside in the winter too but it's just not the same. I'm a spring and fall kind of girl.

Owen has been a character lately. Here are a few of the things he's been saying:

Today after work my sister was telling me of how he was hauling toys out but wouldn't let her play with any of them. I told Owen he needed to share with Naunee, she likes to play too. He responded, "I try to share, but I not".

When I got home from book club tonight I could hear him in his room asking Morgan where I was. I peeked in and he said, " I was wanting you! I losed you for a little while."

He was looking for something that my sister had put away and of course it wasn't jumping out at him. She told him it was in his room. So he said to her, "I use my eyebrows to look."

He's also getting better as using his manners. Especially "thank you" and "no thank you". Please is a little trickier but he's getting there. I asked him today if he wanted his blanket while he was lying on the floor pretending to sleep. He said, "no thank you. Thanks! I not need it."

I'm glad tomorrow is Friday. It's been a slow/busy week all at the same time. There has been snow and really cold weather. I'm ready for spring (you probably got that already!) and some sun and warm weather.

Such sweet little thoughts from Owen! It's great that you've recorded them. How fun it will be to read them when he's older!
