We Love to Wii

After that last snow, we had another, only this one brought with it about 11" of the fluffy white stuff. Remnants of that snow are still visible in places up here on the mountain, some two weeks later.

Now the temps are warming up a bit, and I wouldn't be surprised if we start to see tiny yellow daffodils poking up their curious heads any moment now...

I have been immersed in work these days, though. I haven't had much time to get out and enjoy nature like I would love to do. I have had some new projects come across my desk, not the least of which is creating a brand new magazine from scratch and learning how to design websites using Dreamweaver. Both have consumed a tremendous amount of my time.

When I'm not doing those things, my 7 year old has been insisting I Wii with her, playing the Super Mario game. Last weekend I bought a second remote to play with, and boy, we have been unstoppable ever since. I'm sure my poor dear hubby misses getting to watch all of his favorite TV shows when we keep interrupting him to play Wii.

He's such a gem about it, though, and even enjoys watching the two of us bumbling through the obstacle course on screen, often dying repeatedly. Thank goodness for those game-saving bubbles!

We inherited a flat screen TV from my sister in law, so today we used part of our tax refund to purchase a new entertainment center to set it on. When our 7 year old got home and saw the big TV hooked up, the first thing out of her mouth was, as I'm sure you've guessed,

"Can we play Wii?!?!?!"

You know we did.
