Day 695: Unseasonably Warm

I LOVE when that phrase makes it into the weather forecast.  And it's been doing it a lot lately.  It's still quite chilly, but way better than 14 below.

Today was positively gorgeous in the mid 50's.  The kids and I spent the morning with some friends at the Children's Museum.  It was nice and getting to know a new friend better was definitely a Joyful Moment. And I know it was a hugely needed Joyful Moment for the kids, so I'm glad we did it.

That meant that we went to the gym in the afternoon, after naps.  This really threw the kids off for some reason, but I'm so glad we went.  Z and I went for a beautiful run outside.  I felt a little sick throughout because I'm still recovering (and last night had several interruptions from a severely dehydrated Baby B crying out for his "mink" sippy cup), but it still really revived my spirits.  Staying in a sickly house for over a week doing nothing but cleaning and comforting sad little bodies has a tendency to wear a person down.

Today was marvelous.

Wishing you all marvelous Joyful Moments!

I'm actually going to post another JM for Dec 29 when we went to the lights at Temple Square with your big sis and her family. Walking up to the Christ statue with the kids was amazing, as was walking outside and looking at the life-size nativity scene and listening to a recording of the prophet, Pres. Thomas S Monson relate the story. This was a night I'll remember.
