Maybe it's because it's the middle of February, maybe it's because there's been nothing but bad news and ridiculous politics in our area lately, maybe it's because I'm embarassed for all of the things that have gone wrong at the Olympics while we're hosting, but I'm kind of feeling discouraged. Just kind of tired of everything and wishing that I had a magic wand (how many times have you heard me say this, people who know me in real life?) and could create some positive change, especially here in my town.
But since I don't have a magic wand, here's the next best thing... cute animals!
This little beady-eyed little wonderbird was spotted over here.
The swan story and photo credits are here.
And there are good things happening, I know. I was especially taken last week when I heard about Not Far From the Tree, a project in Toronto to use produce grown in the city which would otherwise be left to waste, to feed people! You can read a bit more about it here. They even have an Etsy shop, where you can buy that adorable onesie for Son #2. There are definitely good things going on, I guess I just am feeling like they're all far away.
I guess I would feel ickier if I had a cold. But then I would have an excuse to make these homemade cough drops. I know! Fun.
And since I can't help but end on a positive note, tomorrow has snow day potential. My fingers are crossed!
