Random updates.

We've had a lot of inside action this week between the broken leg and some chilly weather. I got this marble run at the dump on Wed, which has provided pretty much constant entertainment for the boys. Please note Remick wearing the rubber glove given to Makili by the Orthopedist on Thurs. Treasure! Both gloves are now in the freezer full of water for some fun this week.One day this week (they've all sort of blurred together at this point?) I woke up and though I saw an owl outside in our field. I was SO excited and hustled the boys to the window even though they didn't really care that much. So I threw my coat on and went outside to get a closer look. I looked up Maine owls on the internet and couldn't find one that looked like it, so I followed it all down the street to get a closer look before I finally decided that it was actually a baby hawk, which upon further research I now believe to be a Cooper's Hawk. I am pretty hopeful he'll call this area home.
This is an exciting new addition in our house - an upstairs bathroom!!!
And the barnwood floors now with finish in our bedroom. They look awesome and I sort of feel the need to give a little "I told you so" to all those who doubted me when I was out there pulling board off the barn in 40 degree weather. It was SO worth it!!
And I'm trying to remember this smiling face when I'm about to lose it from the whining. Thursday was great after he got the cast, but Friday I almost lost my shit. This kid is off, and it isn't just the broken leg. I don't know if he's sick or what but he has not been himself.
This is obviously pre-broken leg, but I just think it is so cute how Remick wants to do everything his brother does. Of course sometimes that leads to broken bones, but sometimes it's cute.
And this moment, I am enjoying some blissful serenity. My family went up to Ann's last night while I was at work. I think this is actually the first time I have ever been away from them both over night. I got to sleep in my own bed and lay there awake this morning. I got to do a little sewing and listen to great music. I got to blog and drink my coffee without waiting on anybody else. It was just the refresher I needed for another week.
