This is going to be so comfortable inside

Still raining, but the outside walls are all now double-framed, and we now have a couple of interior walls up and others mostly assembled on the wall, nearly ready to put in position.

Grandson and I spent nearly all day inside again–reading The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe (I’m fairly convinced there’s a lot of it he doesn’t understand, but nevertheless he wants me to read it).  Today we read about Mr. Tumness, talked about what kind of creature he is, and finally found a picture of an actor playing Mr. Tumness on Google Images.  We also got out the watercolors and painted together–as in both of us painting on the same piece of paper!  It was great fun, and he did surprisingly well with color and some design.  I think his attention span for painting was about 45 minutes–that was amazing for a 3-year-old!!

Tonight I pan fried a sirloin steak, getting it much more medium than rare (sigh) and had a salad with it–greens from the greenhouse, crispy radishes from a friend’s garden, pea pods and broccoli from the greenhouse as well, and asparagus out of the garden.

Tomorrow’s not supposed to be quite as rainy.  My spirit could use another sunny day.
