Buzzy Day

Today is the only day this week and probably next that the weather is actually sunny and nice. I took a few moments to get out and grab actual proof that Spring is here and that I have some color before the predicted snow. Yes, snow. In April. For the second time. My poor Hyacinths probably won’t survive the second round and the freezing temps we are supposed to get. I needed some evidence that I actually had some flowers this Spring. *sigh*

Evolving Traditions

From the time my kids were old enough to do puzzles and play games, Hubby and I have tortured our kids on Easter by forcing them to do a scavenger hunt to find their baskets. It took a time or two for them to get the hang of things, but they absolutely fell in love with the tradition.

Too Cool!

So over the moon excited! The design that MC and I put together is the one they chose to use for the club t-shirts and the finished product came in today.

I’m so thrilled with how these came out. They are every bit as cool as I imagined. It looks like they still tweaked the design a bit, probably to ensure there were no issues with the actual print process. For the most part it is exactly as we designed it.

Repost… Death By Chocolate

I’m reposting this as this is, again, what MC has asked for and what I spent my evening working on putting together. No real creativity required, but it is still, and probably always will be, a family favorite. I did not take the time to make the individuals and just did this in a large 9 x 13 pan because I’m serving Hubby’s sister and dad this time and the individuals are just a ton of work that I didn’t have time for today.

Looking Forward and Back

In 2017 I read 338 new to me books and reread 22. That may seem like a lot to some, but for me, that is down in comparison to years past. As much as I love to read, I’m actually glad that number is down because that means I’m doing other things besides JUST that.

Goodbye 2017

Wishing everyone a peaceful and happy new year! I’ll leave you with some of my favorites from this year.

 

Let The Fun Begin!

So, today will be our Christmas Eve with my in-laws. Not because this is when we normally do it, but because there MIGHT be a SLIGHT chance of the white stuff on Christmas Eve. Since we can’t have that (no seriously, things get stupid crazy with the in-laws when weather of any kind other than perfectly dry and sunny is involved), I’ll be doing all my Christmas Eve stuff today instead. Hopefully, that doesn’t include watching for weather updates every other minute.

Merry Christmas Eve Eve!
