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