This is what happens on rainy days when Dad is home.
They were all listening to an audio version of an old Louis L’Amour story. It is pouring out there. We had a visit from my stepdaughter and two grandsons this morning. Then it was “chill time”.
The upstairs is my favourite place in the house. We spend most of our time up there, playing chess, talking, playing Scrabble, reading, doing things on our respective laptops. It’s always bright even if it’s a cloudy day because of all the windows. We have a small table up there that doubles as Grown Up Eating Space when we have guests, because we can still see right down into the kitchen to keep an eye on the kids.
We store games, blocks, books, etc. in two of the trunks so that they are out of the way when not being used, and easily accessible when the kids want to pull them out.
This is by far our favourite room in the house. Especially on rainy days. 🙂
