Snippets

I haven’t even done the past MicroBlog Monday or two because illness has hit my house to make the lead-up to going away even more of a challenge, but I thought I’d just jot down a couple snippets before we go.

________________________________

My boy was ill with a bug that turned him into a mini-volcano for 24 hours. He’s better now but has been quite a handfull. Travel will break the cycle of crankiness with all the millions of stimuli, right?

I have a cold. Since I’m our trip organiser and planner this means I’m extra exhausted. Oop. I’ll be over it before we go and travel will take me out of my funk, right?

________________________________

Today is my last work day before going on holiday. I walk to work either along a busy street or along an unsealed path next to a rivulet. Unless the rivulet track is very muddy, I always choose that path. Today it was quite muddy, but I chose to take the track. I took lots of photos so I can compare early spring with middle spring when I get back in late October. Plus I saw two of my favourite dogs along the commute and didn’t slip in the mud! Rewards.

________________________________

My boy had a play date a couple weeks ago, and I was horrified to see him be rather mean to his friend at one point. I don’t know if it’s normal boy behaviour or if he is, horror of all horrors, becoming a bit of a bully. So I’m trying to remind him that kindness is magic. When you’re kind to others, not only does it make them happy but you feel happy too.

I’m off to Japan on Sunday. If I have time and decent wifi connection there may be photos while I’m away. If not, please play nicely while I’m gone.

Be good to yourself; be good to others.

Kindness is magic.

    We’ve had similar problems with Ian recently so also working on instilling the importance of kindness. Hope you have wonderful travels & come back rested and healthy

    I promise we will play nicely and await photos when you return. Feel better! And have a wonderful trip.

    Have a wonderful trip!

    I hate mud, so I would always choose the busy street. I would probably miss out on a lot of more wonderful views…

    Kids are mean – and then they’re heartbreakingly kind – and then they’re awful again. They have to test the boundaries.
