So it’s mid February and we’re basically having an early spring (helloooo El Nino, where are you?). The kids and I took a walk down to the cul-de-sac across the street a couple days ago to ride scooters, cavort and basically enjoy the sunshine. I snapped this photo to capture the mustard and green grasses growing in a little open space we have between areas of houses.
I have found that living in a mega-subdivision surrounded by other stucco houses has made me crave wild open nature. Something as innocuous as a grassy, weedy, gravely area like this is precious. It’s a little pathetic but I choose to just enjoy it with the kids and let them get muddy and sticker-y in it from time to time. It’s good for all of us.
