Saturday together

I realize that I am fortunate enough to spend my weekdays doing exactly what I want to be doing, so waiting for Saturday has nothing to do with taking a break (I'm still at "work" after all) and everything to do with the three of us being together. The seasons dictate how we spend our time together, and right now we're between sledding and hiking, so we've been spending our Saturdays at book sales and in quaint downtowns. We were in Chelsea today for their library book sale and then we had brunch. Their book sale is harder to maneuver than ours, but cheaper, and we brought home some pretty fantastic kids finds, like another Baum book (an offshoot from the Oz series), and a book of art and activities from the MMA (completely untouched), to name just two, for less than a cup of coffee would have cost at Starbucks. I don't even like Starbucks.

We woke up to sun and relative warmth, we came home in frigid wind and a little bit of rain, so we spent the rest of the day on music, art, books, games, and toys, all in front of a fire. We're just about finished with the tenth Oz book, I finished the first Earth's Children book and started the second, Calvin finished his Book of the Dead scroll and Jon made one, too, and there was piano practice, and guitar practice, shapes with imagination, and playing with our pyramids. And then leftovers, still in front of the fire. It was just a day together.
