springing ahead

Even though this is the second or third year since the “powers that be” decided to spring ahead earlier, it still seems odd to me. I’d been enjoying the daylight between 6 and 6:30 a.m. and while it’s nice to have the light after dinner… well, I’d just as soon have it in the morning. At any rate, it certainly has been feeling more spring-like. Today I cracked a window and the sliding glass door to let some fresh air into the house and it was soooo good!

Life has been busy lately. I barely remember much of last week, but we did go to the elementary school’s book fair and ice cream social. Jake picked out two books in the “Diary of a Wimpy Kid” series. Normally I’d just borrow them from the library, but he just loves them so much. The only downside to that (if there is one) is that he finishes a book in about three days! It makes me so happy that he enjoys reading, though.

Over the weekend I blew the dust off of my machine and did a little sewing. I just whipped up a simple pouch for my everyday makeup:



Nothing fancy, but it beats the overly-big makeup bag where I’d been storing my stuff. Of course, it took forever to do because of the many interruptions during the day, but at least I completed it!

Last night for dessert I made Sandra’s Hillbilly Teeth for the boys. They thought they were absolutely hysterical. (Or “ill-arious” as Noah says).

Last night we watched a movie Drew picked up cheap, called “Totally Awesome!” It’s a spoof on 80s movies, kind of in the same vein as “Scary Movie.” It was pretty dumb, but perfect for one of those night when you don’t want to think too hard about what you’re watching. Tracy Morgan cracked me up with jheri curls and hip hop clothing. Some of lines were the funniest of the entire movie!

I think tonight I’m going to try to make a little progress on this baby dress I’m crocheting. Yeah, I’m not so sure it’ll be done for Easter, LOL! I keep getting side-tracked. I’ve got too many things going on all at once!
