Sorry I've been a bit absent. I'll write more about why later... it's good! But yesterday we took a break from everything to pack up the canoe for a paddle around the lake (or, more accurately, a troll around the lake... we are the rednecks who hooked up a trolling motor to our canoe. It's pretty awesome. Hoorah.) The sun was warm and it felt like spring. While Colin was rocking short sleeves and Veda was ready for a polar bear swim, I still wore two sweatshirts with my hood up most of the time. I'm always colder than everyone. Darn it.
