us, lately

What's up, buttercup?

Ok, so I never say that. But it's popped into my head a few times as I've seen random sprouts coming up during our *still* 30 degree weather we are *still* having. *Still.*

Ugh. I really really really really really dislike winter in New England. But, at least it's not winter in Canada/Greenland/Norway/Antarctica. Where it might be colder for maybe a month longer.

'Cause winter in New England is 6 months long, people!!!

So ready for Spring. And it's not coming.

And enough complaining. When has that ever changed the weather?  Thank you, Lord, for a prolonged winter, where hopefully more creepy crawly things will die and not invade our homes and sting our bodies come warmer weather.

Lately, we've not had much going on. Just a few things -

- Isaac had a random fever for two days, Jeremiah now has an ear infection, and Isabelle is still ok. We've had more sickness in the last 2 weeks than in the entire winter!

- Lyricora has been having Lenten concerts, and it is such beautiful and hard music. We had our first weekend of concerts this past weekend, and another one coming up.  It's a very taxing program to sing, but beautiful to listen to.  Maybe a little like Lent?  We're demonstrating it!  We gave up breathing during singing for Lent, and wonderfully rubato, moving musical phrases have resulted.  (Sort of kidding.)  This piece is one of my favorites that we're singing:




(not a fan of his conducting, but they do a nice job.)


- my next session of music classes is starting next week!  So far sign ups are looking good.  :) Excited to do class outside sometimes (if it ever gets above 30)!
