A breath of fresh air

Yesterday called for some time outdoors and some fresh air and sunshine. We've all had quite awful coughs and colds for a couple of weeks, and have been stuck indoors most of the time, with little energy to do very much at all. And to top it off my son also had a nasty accident with a swing and had to have three stitches in his forehead.

I love these days in winter, when the air is crisp and cool, and the sun is shining. They are motivating and invigorating, especially after several days of grey skies, rain...and coughs and colds.

The kids were happy to just explore along the edge of the lake for a while. I was happy to sit in the sun and crochet (even when my son told me it was a bit weird to crochet at the park)

There was a bit of climbing too, with me hovering underneath a lot as they got higher in the hope that there would be no more incidents involving stitches!

A morning was just enough for us, and we spent the afternoon resting indoors again. But it was a great morning out, and just what we all needed.
