We had a brief reprieve today from the wintry weather. It got up to 46 and we had bright blue skies and warm sun. When Bella and I got back from the grocery store this morning, I didn’t have the heart to make her go inside. So I let her play in the yard and we had a picnic lunch on the back porch. I brought out cheese slices and grapes and a banana for her and warmed up a plate of enchiladas for myself.
She stomped in the mud and poked puddles with a stick, ran back and forth across the length of the porch and threw her beach ball around in the yard. When our upstairs neighbor came home, Bella greeted her enthusiastically, almost as excited at her appearance as she is when daddy comes home.
I figured we should make the most of the weather because we may not have another nice day like this for a long time. Tomorrow is supposed to bring another winter storm, with the possibility of getting up to seven inches of snow in the afternoon.
