This memorial day morning has brought torrential rains to our fair city, and QQ and I are curled up with a fuzzy blanket waiting for our friends Lara and Tegan to come down from the mountains. It will be interesting to see what we can cook up to do indoors on a day like today...
In fact, this has been the wettest spring (between early snowstorms and the wild, electric deluges of rain we've been having for the past week or two) that I've seen in years. The sunny side of that picture is that I don't have to water, and the gardens are thrilled!
In today's news, QQ woke up and scribbled something on her magnetic drawing tablet. I thought she was trying for a circle (we've been working on that lately), so I said "Oh, good try, Q! That's almost a circle!" But she shook her head and signed "fish" and pointed at the tablet. My daughter drew me a fish this morning!! I have never seen her attempt to draw something besides just scribbling before.
Next, she signed "writing" and held the tablet out to me. So I wrote "mama" in capital letters. I pointed to it and said "What does that say?" She pointed to the word and said "mama!"...and then she kissed it. How sweet is that?
P.S. - Oh, and another new illustration of mine is exclusively on the Pioneer Woman's site today.
