We're living off the technology grid whilst* here in Washington, which is slightly welcome after being so hyper-connected all year.
Here are the happenings of late:
A bit of yardwork. Who knew the kid would love to rake and hoe and dig? She keeps asking for more yardwork, that crazy thing.
A bit of family. I absolutely love bringing the table down into the trees and having dinner al fresco.
A bit of sweetness. Oh, this girl is growing up. We went to a concert on the lawn last Friday and I suddenly realized that she actually sat in her chair, ate her lunch and enjoyed the show. No running all around, no parents chasing. Just big girl appreciation of music.
*Smiling because I was able to work the lovely word 'whilst' into this post. I'm game for bringing this word into the US vernacular. It has such a nice sound to it.
