As I type this we are enjoying the effects of a peaceful, rainy Sunday.
Yesterday there was a moment where I sat typing while the whole house around me slept, and I'm feeling very much in that moment now. Currently I have chocolate puppy snoozing next to me, keeping my side warm, and the hubby is reading through the Sunday paper.
Tater P. has had an excellent weekend. He is finally 100% healthy and has awoken each day with smiles and laughter. He's been eating well and sleeping well, and we've spent so much time playing this weekend. He's been playing with all of his toys, especially enjoying the balls, his dump truck, and an old crayola paint box that he loves to carry around the room. This morning he climbed to the first landing of our staircase (with daddy by his side, of course). He also enjoyed turkey sausage for the first time! The boy turns his nose up at pb&j, chicken nuggets, and almost any other meat we've offered him (including the little Gerber meat sticks), but he wolfs down turkey sausage. Go figure!
And he's really had a very happy, easy, enjoyable week. He missed his daddy, since Bob was out of town, but I think he was so happy to be over his recent stomach bug that he was just very happy each day.
We are all very happy to be reunited, and he and Bob have been enjoying spending time together. He loves to run up to Bob and throw his arms around him.
The weather outside has been rainy and cold all weekend, but we really haven't minded. I spent most of yesterday in my jammies, getting a chance to write while Taylor slept. We've been enjoying coffee and tea, comfy clothes, the fireplace, and TiVo'd American Idol. Last night we made a warm Chicken Vindaloo for dinner and tonight is Crock Pot Beef Roast. Nothing like enjoying the last vestiges of winter!
I hope everyone else out there is staying warm!
