Work & Play {This is the Way to Be Happy Each Day}

Upon waking up, he will set to working right away...

...and all that effort is quite satisfying.

It's been messy outdoors lately. Nearly 60s and plenty of snow on the ground makes for very wet returns and a nice coating of mud on a little boy if mom's not playing bodyguard. But outdoors beats indoors any day we get a taste of the two. So snowsuits, boots, and maybe mittens play bodyguards instead, and out we go to play.

[Oops. I missed snow pants and boots on him! What was I thinking!?? Maybe trying to get out the door before it was time to bring everyone back in?]

[When foraging winter-dry herbs began, I figured it was probably time to get inside for a snack.]


Work while you work,
Play while you play,
This is the way
To be happy each day.

All that you do,
Do with your might,
Things done by halves
Are never done right
