It's that most wonderful time of the year in Florida: Hurricane Season. Typically during the summers in Tallahassee it rains everyday anyway, but occasionally we are lucky enough (being totally sarcastic here) to be blessed with the presence of a Tropical Storm or Hurricane. At the moment, Tropical Storm Debby is gracing us with her presence, and that bad mamajama has parked herself off the Gulf coast and is proceeding to just rotate and blow nasty rain and stormy weather our way. Today is Monday. It rained most of the day yesterday, it is raining today, and according to our friends at the Weather Channel, it's going to stay wet throughout our entire week.
Day One of our confinement: We made a wicked cool sheet fort this morning. I had to vacuum anyway, so we rearranged all the furniture, swept up, and then we covered the WHOLE living room with sheets. Complete with our ficus tree in the middle, your tent was one cool play space. We used your collapsible tunnel as your entrance, and you hauled in your toy laptop, a few stuffed friends and some trucks. And it kept you pretty busy. Well, in reality you were occupied long enough for me to vacuum my bedroom, your bedroom and the dining room rug. Then it was time for me to come play.
I honestly cannot remember the last time I played in a sheet fort, and this was pretty fun. We read books, sang Going On Bear Hunt, and then, we ended up having a picnic in our little hideaway. It was a blast!
You in your gigantic fort. Took up the entire living room
Lunch time in the fort. On my freshly vacuumed floor. Smart planning? Probably not, but who cares?
Love you bunches,
