Winter 2020-2021, Part 1

Here we are again--December and January, no winter trips for us this year, but some good times at home and with our close "podded" friends, and a little bit (when the reopening cooperated) around the city.

Recess, at the playground when it's rainy or on our block:

Helen's fish and orchestras:

Helen's arm tree, Helen and Samantha's illustrated book, Helen's shield:

 

Fun take-out treats, from Third Cliff Bakery, handmade boba and fantastic custards from Chinatown, and Persian kebab:

 

Just hanging about--eating batter, reading to dolls, checking out neighborhood art, visiting Little Free libraries, playing with Legos, playing with a neighbor:

 

Trying out new-to-us playgrounds:

 

Bike errands, mostly to the library, but also bringing two weeks' worth of groceries to families that had to quarantine because they tested positive:
