Feeling better!

Yes, as soon as the bodies were healed, we headed outside, to heal our souls...some wet swinging... 

an unexpectedly lovely day in the sun (short-lived, but we caught it)...

and our weekly habit - the Athens Farmer's Market, which runs year-round, folks, really it does. The girls bring a dollar and find a place to huddle with a warm cup of steel-cut oats from their friend Konstantin - this perch beats all others, in the back of Marge's truck (she sells fabulous apple butter and is a kind cheery soul those cold saturday mornings!).

On valentine's day the girls and I went to an event hosted by the Sierra club, where we made edible valentines for the birds and critters in the woods, and then took a hike to distribute them.  On our way we spotted these wee snowdrops peeking out from under a rock...can it be true??
Our week ended with a family date at "Indonesian Night" on campus, complete with spicy chicken, various forms of dance, including an Indonesian version of the electric slide, which of course meant audience participation much to the glee of the girls (sorry, no photos), and romantic ballads (of the American variety) in honor of the day.

I have just spent some time on your blog and I almost felt like I was looking at photos of my 2 girls. They seem to have very similar interests and a similar mommy. ;)
