Another 5 Minute Friday ... one word, five minutes, no editing.  Ready, set, go!

Five Minute Friday


Right now, we're wearing layers.  Two shirts and a cardigan.  Capri pants and tights.  And from the look of Aaron's hamper, perhaps several pairs of socks.  It's not that it's so very cold, right now - it's just that it's not warm.

Even now as I sit here, I have a mug of coffee at hand to warm my chilly fingers and I haven't taken my shoes off because I don't want my tootsies to get cold.  As for Lydia, she's sockless, but she is also running around an awful lot right now and working up a good little sweat.

As for me, I am looking forward to Spring for one big reason:  less clothes.  I want to see some of my kids' little bare parts:  their toes, their elbows, their bonked up and bruised shins and their bony knees.  I want shed a layer or two and enjoy some sunshine on my shoulders and legs, the warmth of spring kissing our bare parts.

And, quite honestly, I want less laundry to wash.  Bare skin means only one layer of smaller bits of clothing and that means a few less loads to sort, load and fold.  Which hopefully will translate to time outside letting my bare skin breath ... my white, desperately-in-need-of-some-sun skin.

C'mon, Spring!


  1. Nice! Sunshine on bare skin sounds really good right now. As do little bare knees and toes.

  2. Just for fun - I dare you to go out in the winter air, just in your own yard, as bare as you dare. Just for a moment. Exhilarating? Bet it'll bring a smile!

  3. I am so with you...C'mon spring! And yes, I am looking foward to less less laundry and putting coats on before heading outdoors. Love ya beautiful woman!

  4. Hi there! I want to invite you to an In-courage meet-up on Sat. April 27th at four winds coffee. I am looking to see if they have wi-fi otherwise the venue will have to change to my house. Anyhoo, it is a chance to get out of the house without kids and to have some great coffee. Will keep you posted.


Thanks for visiting! Your comments are warm fuzzies! (And con-crit is always welcome, too.)
