Over the last six months or so Buzz has show little to no interest in playing at the park near our house. (Probably because we spoiled him by frequently letting him play at the jumbo-normous parks in nearby neighborhoods.) Today he was quite enthusiastic about exploring the snake-path park just one building past ours. Somehow we spent over an hour winding our way up and up and up with plenty of breaks for water and snacks along the way.
As the sun set the bonfires were lit. Massive towers, the height of two tall men, set ablaze by pyromaniacal natives. They heated so much and so quickly that nobody could even bear to stay in their vicinity. The mountain of flames was quickly abandoned and smaller sites were set up in other areas of the field, where people could actually congregate and sit round the fires to kumzitz and enjoy.
We're all sleeping in sweats and long sleeves tonight since the a/c is running. Z wanted the timer to turn it off at 2am but I for one refuse to get out of bed to open windows at that hour of the morning. Especially when the smoke cloud of unbanked bonfires will hover over the city for at least the next day and a half.
Tomorrow is Monday. Phil is off on adventures and Z has work. Buzz and I will have to find something exciting to do. Maybe we will bake some cookies, or make some playdoh, or paint with watercolors, or fingerpaint, or something else messy and oh so much fun!! Who knows - there are so many possibilities!
