We are slowly being blanketed by the white fluffy stuff. Luckily my 1940's beaver coat complete with hood and muff has arrived. I test drove it yesterday taking Fred for a long walk and it was toasty warm. I have been so lethargic and the girls are sick and so we are spending a lot of time at home. I made E a mermaid costume this morning from a garbage bag. I've seen a pattern to knit one but considering how happy she is with the garbage bag and how long a knitted one would take to make I think we will stick with this version. I made some fish tails and stuffed them with paper for the bottom to stick out the back but E has decided she would rather have her feet in them so it is probably a good thing that I don't have too much invested in how she uses it. Little Z is so sick and wants lot of cuddles; she is all nestled up beside me on the couch. T and E went out yesterday and Z and I had some fun at home. I've really been trying to follow her lead more when we're playing and spending time just focused on her not trying to get other things done (and since my motivation to get "other things" done is at an pretty low ebb this is a good fit).
I made a pear, sweet potato, yogurt, ginger smoothie this morning that looked beautiful and tasted not bad but the girls weren't going to give it a try. Z suffered through my incredibly thick over the top too many ingredients attempt yesterday. Mrs. Mittens I definitely need some smoothie tips.
Anyone else feeling stressed/obsessive about Christmas gifts?
