Believe it or not, Little Sprout has a terrible case of Cabin Fever. She is even willing to accept running up and down the halls of our building as an alternative to being in the apt.
I can't say that I blame her. When I think about how much she loved sitting out in the yard and watching me garden last summer, it seems a crime that she hasn't been outside to PLAY in so terribly long. She just doesn't walk well enough to be playing in the snow, and MN doesn't have much else right now.
Maybe I will have to fork out the gas money to take her to the Conservatory down at Como again. That, at least, is practically free and warm.
I have thought about taking her to an indoor play-place like Chuck E Cheese or McD's, but I don't really think I could survive that.
The sun is promising, though the temps are still too low to give much hope that spring is coming. Dad was telling me that next week it is supposed to get up above freezing, and that sounds like heaven to me. I hope to get plastic up over some of my raised beds (if I can find them under the snow) sometime over the next few days. I am hoping to melt the snow and warm the soil enough to get some cooler weather plants started really early this year. It might work and it might not, but it will get me outside doing SOMETHING productive.
