I love all the different windows in this picture and the lights on inside. I love the overcast sky. Lovely.
In other news, Mimi and I have been working on this little workbook:
I love stuff like this and Mimi got really into it. I thought we could do a page a day and a little lesson on each country, but she was so into it that we did 5 countries in one sitting!!! We were at it for almost 2 hours. She picked the countries, in this order: Austria, Japan, Norway, Cambodia, and Korea. Excellent choices. I have big things planned for when we get to Poland :)
Also this week: a new storage solution! I am (was!) so sick of stepping over laundry baskets full of clean, folded clothes with no where to go. Our house was built in 1940, and apparently no one wore many clothes back then, because our house only has one teeny tiny closet upstairs in Mimi's room and a sort of half closet about 3 feet tall in Maxwell's room. Our bedroom has no closet at all. So my truly genius husband came up with this idea! It holds so much and has completely eliminated the problem of clean-laundry-no-home. It's even eliminated one (of many) falling apart dressers that I've been dying to give the heave.
