Sick kids and rainy afternoons

It’s raining and gray and what I like to call a “Syracuse” day. I am from the central NY area originally and while absolutely vivid foliage, gorgeous peonies, and sparkling snowy days are an abundance…so are gray days. Something about the snow belt and being in the lake effect from the north. Either way, today is truly a Syracuse Day.
It is also a sick day for two of the four kids. So I’d like to say “thank you” to my work for once again, letting me leave, and also to Walt Disney, for awesome movies to watch, and to Lego, for all of the tiny parts, that on any other day, I curse out loud, but today fits the bill for finding something quiet to do while feeling low.
