There You Are, Spring!

Despite the fact that we actually had a snow delay yesterday,today there is sunshine: beautiful restorative, cheery sunshine. I intend to soak up and store it away, as well as memorize the loveliness that is the birds because tomorrow? Guaranteed tomorrow has a plan all its own.

Happy spring break! We are headed on a Southern Oregon Coast crawl in a 23 foot Sunseeker for the week. Should be one heck of an adventure, so stay tuned for the tale come April!

Mads, As of Late

It's time for an appearance by my neice Madeline, whom I haven't seen in person since she turned one and whom I am missing greatly. She is so cute!
Look at her here, checking out some goats:
What a tiny little peep she is!
Check her out bathing sinkstyle. That smile! AAAA~
Here she swims with her Grandma Barb. Gooood times.
And here, she just plays with a ball in the grass. Love her to pieces.

You probably can't tell from this picture, but it is EVER so blustery outside and I am holed up inside with two sick girls. We are on day five of Julia having a cruddy sickness, so hopefully she'll be back to school tomorrow. Avery's a few days behind and has had the highest fevers ever with this bug-104.7! What? Thankfully I've had my convo with the advice nurse, I'm doing everything I can on my end, the illness just needs to run its course.

Despite the fact that the calender was quite full today, it's been wiped clean of everything, other than working on that speech Julia has to give Wednesday, maybe a nap or two, some reading, definitely some TV, lots of jazz and drinking tea, and knitting legwarmers, my new hobby. I'm busting them out right and left. Totally tubular, are they! (Literally!)

Yep, pretty sure today the only thing I may accomplish is whisking up instant coconut cream pudding for Julia.
And sneaking a few of these peppermint marshmellows to Avery....
