Update from this part of the woods.
These are long dark days, there’s no question about that. But I can see the light staying longer every afternoon and vaccines are happening and I can’t help feeling some measure of optimism mixed in with my exhaustion. Photo by Crate Escape, where Phoebe is currently enjoying her second day. She LOVES it and we are grateful to have such a wonderful place in our neighborhood.
Grace is going to class with the windows open and Whit is doing drivers Ed with the car windows down. It had been very cold the last few days. These feel like such 2021 details and I’m hugely conscious of our good fortune that she’s in class and he’s taking driving lessons at all!
I’m dealing with a creaky hip and seized-up back (middle age is so glamorous) and Matt is doing great. Time is flying even as it inches forward, groundhog-day-like. Phoebe brings us all so much joy and I can barely remember life before her.
