Time is Just Flying

Weekly Happenings: This past week didn’t really yield anything out of the ordinary for our family. It’s hard to believe that we’re two days away from it being April. Where is the time going?

The Weekly Weather: It’s been really nice this past week. We’ve had warmer temperatures, but it hasn’t been too bad. When July and August hit, I’m going to have to close my eyes and try to remember how today has felt, haha.

What Paul’s Been Up To: He’s really been working with our yards. We’ve had quite the influx of weeds (unfortunately, none of our neighbors seem to have quite the same desire to keep up their yards, so we get a lot of stuff blown from their yards over to ours). He’s been working hard to eradicate the issue.

What Sarah’s Been Up To: I tweaked one of my back muscles pretty severely, so I’ve been trying to take it as easy as I can while it recovers. I did feel well enough to attend my monthly book club meeting though, which was fun as always.

What Joseph’s Been Up To: He continues to be a big help watching Abigail while I teach piano. One fun thing that he did was that he brought his recorder in for Show and Tell and played a song for his class. 🙂

What Abigail’s Been Up To: She has demonstrated that she has quite the interesting palate when it comes to food choices. The other day, she was in the pantry with me and she started asking for chips. Since we didn’t actually have any chips, I looked around to see what she thought were chips. She was referring to my rice crackers that are flavored with soy sauce and toasted sesame seeds. Well, okay then. She was happy to get some with her lunch. For our splurge eat-out lunch today, she ate more of my onion rings than she did her own fries.

This Week in Pictures:

She does this quite often…it keeps her busy for quite a while, which is nice.
I saw this porcelain succulent at Target and thought it would look perfect in the powder room. I was quite pleased with the result.
Abigail has been big into giving kisses this week. I brought this bear out for her to play with (it’s one I got as a teenager) and she had to immediately give it a kiss.
Playing his recorder for his class. I didn’t realize he would be able to play it, so I’m grateful his teacher got this picture and shared it with me.
I’m a coupe days early for April, but I figured I would change out my St. Patrick’s Day decorations for my springtime ones today, since Monday will be a bit on the busy side.
This is a little banner I made last year (?) to go over our electric fireplace.
I went to take a picture of the decorations I put on the piano and decided that this shot was much better.
My spring door hanger decoration. I think I made it a couple of years ago out of stuff I just had lying around. Those are often the best projects, in my opinion.
Yet another entry in the “Everything is a Hat” Hall of Fame. 😉
I put her in her room for “quiet time” so that she could watch a video and play while I got some things done. She fell asleep right before I went to get her, apparently…and slept through me cleaning up the toy-nado in her room.
Paul was able to complete the framing project for our TV by painting the sides and staining the front.
