It's Been A Few Days

Since last I was here, I've spent days deep cleaning the house, had a lovely potluck for The Boy's class which was much enjoyed and which I would definitely do again. I've been to the dentist and had two fillings. I've drawn a picture and designed a bookplate for the library-to-be at The Boy's school and I've baked cookies for a bake sale we're holding tomorrow to raise money for the library-to-be.

It's been rather busy around here and because the weekend was beautiful, I spent almost all of Saturday and Sunday (when I wasn't in church) outside playing in the yard. In fact, I earned the title (again) of Meanest Mom in the World for making the children play outside for two whole hours. Shocking isn't it?

I can't wait for spring to really arrive. Here in middle Tennessee, the forsythia is already blooming and some of my daffodils already have buds. The dandelions are also blooming, which makes it easier to find them and dig them out. I am once again waging my usual battle against dandelions and wild onions. Maybe this will be the year I can do some real damage to the violets in the front yard.

Anyway, I'll be back in a bit to report about my new toy and how much I love it.

Try as I might, I guess I'm just not much of an influence here ;-)

Patricia, you have people clean your house for you twice each week. Over here at our house, if Justin and I don't do it, it doesn't get done. And usually we don't do anything at all.

Besides, even after people left, my house was still a whole lot cleaner than a few days before the party when I started cleaning.

Glad the party went well!

You have been very busy.

Our forsythia isn't blooming yet but I expect it to any day now.

Our forsythia has been out for a week! I'm afraid February is going to be something of a shock to some of these optimistic plants. My daffodils have definitely emerged, but I haven't noticed any buds yet.

I still don't know how you can get so much done with three munchkins around. You go, girl!
