These Lazy Days

Kiddo was in fine form Thursday morning. We finally left the house after hibernating for two days only to find that Mr. Grouchy didn't want to put clothes on and face civilization. But a warm drink and some lively company transformed his mood. I hope he doesn't grow up to be a shut-in surrounded by stacks of old newspapers. While we talked him into clothing, he has not yet made nice with his comb. Don't sweat the bedhead, I say.


After breakfast we went to exchange a couple of Mario's gifts, but found that the store was closed. Instead, we took a scenic route through town and viewed southern New Hampshire through snow-covered glasses.


Then we came home, watched the newest Sherlock Holmes movie (one of Mario's stocking stuffers), and ate his new [let's use up the rest of the root veggies from our farmshare] invention: Butternut Squash and Carrot Soup. It. Is. Amazing. After some initial griping about having to try something new, Mr. Picky ate two bowls. If that's not a testament to its greatness, I don't know what is.


I also took the mellow evening as an opportunity to catch up on blog posts. There are so many things I have been meaning to write about, and I actually have the time to write about them, but it seems that my attempt to escape the 'real world' has lead to lapses between posts lately.  I put pen to paper, so to speak, and have loads of shenanigans to show for it. Except that I wanted to post them all at once, which would defeat the purpose.


 A little adventure and little lounging. The best of both worlds.
