So today, the school system decided to cancel school for some reason. There was no ice or snow on the roads, in fact it was a beautiful sunny day. We had 40+ degree weather today. Ashleigh decided she wanted to spend a couple of hours at her gymnastics aftercare and Rian decided he wanted to stay home with mama. So after a little excursion to the craft store and some lunch with my little man, I set out to clean the house a bit and play some Wii with the boy. Oh how he loves the Wii. He really is quite fun to watch with all the jumping up and down and all the "Oh Yeah" and not too much actually happening on the screen. As for the cleaning of the house, my craft table is now free and clear for my craftiness whenever it strikes. I also went through many papers, receipts, junk mail not needed anymore. How wonderful it is to simplify life in anyway. After hubby went and got Ashleigh from the aftercare, I heated up some stew I had made yesterday, Adzuki Bean Miso Potato Stew, and I also made some croutons and vegan ceasar dressing for a nice salad and soup dinner. Being able to sit down to dinner with the whole family is truly one of my life's joys. Dinner is such a special time for us to share our day's stories and to just enjoy eachother's company. To finish off the serene feeling of the day, we decided to play a game of monopoly in front of the fireplace. So far, Rian is winning, but the game is put aside for now, to be continued tomorrow.
