Just Stuff

  • Trying to come up with an interesting, catchy blog post is stressing me out.
  • I want to either get outside and "play" in the dirt or get out and travel - go sightseeing. Therefore I'm currently considering a number of day trips the boys and I can make over spring break...not really any good ideas where to start at the moment. Suggestions??
  • Daylight savings time is really not fun! It's dark again in the mornings when I drive my bus route...and getting supper and bedtimes at a reasonable time is a challenge. Who thought up this scatterbrained idea anyway??
  • Pete's circle of daffodils seems to have mostly survived the construction around here - they are just beginning to peak through the ground.
  • My daffodils and tulips are coming up at the old house - I always feel a bit melancholy when I go over there though I'm definitely happily married. (The above picture was taken last spring at the old house)
  • I stopped by the old house to check on the repair work being done on the kitchen ceiling - and see what else was being done as I knew there was some painting going on.
  • Stretch has equated the fact that doing extra chores around here - splitting wood - with or without a log splitter or working in the shop or whatever equals gas money for him
  • Spring track is starting. Squirrel will be taking time off TaeKwonDo to participate in track. Stretch is busy with spring musical practice. Dipstick is staying busy with homework and CERT (Crisis Emergency Response Training) through his boy scout troop.
  • Squirrel leaves tomorrow for a PeaceKeeper Retreat through school. PeaceKeepers is a program that trains kids to help others resolve conflict without violence.

Sounds like you have a good case of spring fever. We're anxious to be out and doing but it's just not quite time yet so we're both up and down at the same time.

The time change still has me cranky. It's supposed to save somebody money but I have no idea who! I hate pre-tripping by flashlight.

Love the picture of daffodil! Un-fortunately, because we don't have a dormant season, daffodils and tulips do not grow or bloom down here. When we lived up north, I always loved the daffodils - if they were up and blooming, it meant winter was just about over and spring was here!

Day trips sound great. Sorry I can't make any suggestions cause I am unfamiliar with you area. How about you get the scrabble letters in one bag and get sons to pull out a letter. Whatever letters come out you go and explore a town / place that starts with that letter (you go to the nearest place).

I love daffodils! We don't have many where I live, but my tulips should be poking up any day now. It seems like they're taking forever.
