Its been a full but fun day. No time to put together a decent post, (I’m lucky enough to have a handsome man wanting to spend time with ME!) but thought I would say a quick hi!
I am sitting here on a sugar high thanks to Barnes and Nobels’ “Lemon Baby Bundt Cake”…oooohhh baby, it is goooood! That + Vanilla Frapp= me feeling buzzy and a bit sick…but a good sick:) While I was there, a super fun thing happened. I met a reader! My friend Jami was there with a friend and introduced us, and come to find out she is someone who reads and has commented on this lil’ blog of mine. How fun! (Hi Amy, so nice to meet you in person!) Great name, huh?
Other randomness on my brain:
~I’m worried about my garden. The wind was CRAZY today. I think my little carrot tops might have been blow to death. I covered them as best as I could…we’ll see how they are in the morning.
~I spent some time with my sister tonight. Love her. I gave her this rockin’ haircut, (it’s asymmetric, wish you could see the other side, but I didn’t know how public she would want her face, so I gave you half her face:), and my lil’ one was cuddled up on the other side of her face, whose face I don’t want public..confused yet?) then we went shoe shopping. I was talking to her about this blog tonight, and she doesn’t read it very often. (whatever…j/k) We laugh because our lives are so different. Here is my interpretation of our differences…She is young, cool, has a great job and a busy social life…no kids. I am old, getting a bit dweeby, and I’m into gardening, homemaking, cooking, crafting…and have kids everywhere I look. I totally see why she doesn’t read it that often, but I have to give her a hard time about it. In fact, tomorrow (and the next day, and the next, and the next) she will wake up to a blog post from me, sitting in her email inbox, because right after I publish this, I am going on over to my sidebar and entering her email address into the little box that says “subscribe via email.” Bwaahaa, now she’ll have to read it…I love sisters!!
~I am so spring cleaned out! I have only done my sunroom, living room, dining room and I am 1/2 way through with the kitchen. Blech. Tomorrow, my mother- in- law, Sharon, is taking me out to breakfast, then coming back here to tackle the rest of the kitchen with me:) How awesome is that??
~I am determined to make May Day baskets this year. I have a plan, and I hope they turn out as cute as they look in my head!!
~Teacher appreciation day is coming up. I wanna do a lil’ something. Hmm…what to do?
~I’ve been thinking about different little fears I have hanging around lately. Why do I let them? Love this verse– 2 Timothy 1:7 “God has not given us the spirit of fear, but of love, and of power and of a sound mind” Amen!
~Back to that husband of mine, who is waiting so patiently. He has been working on a whole behavior/reward/allowance system that we will be trying out on our kids starting May 1st. It is very exciting. If it works well (most things do that come from his strategic mind) I will blog about it!
