Happy Good Friday My Friends!
Hope you have fun plans for the weekend!
Here are a few random tid bits happening around here.
Did you know that April is National Poetry Month?
The girls and I are doing a little poetry unit.
This week they just read different types and authors.
As you can imagine, Shel Silverstein was their favorite.
Yes, I teach the classics.
I think the girls were going for a Guinness World Record
for the highest stacked laundry basket.
Ok girls, I get the point.
I am trying to be a bit healthier.
Which means I eat a little less ice cream and
think about exercising a lot more.
I have noticed that I drink a lot more water if I use this fun new cup.
And I have been a lot better about taking my vitamins.
These vitamins are not to be confused with the children's gummie vitamins, these bottles are clearly labeled for adults.
You know the section in Good Housekeeping when they ask famous actresses when they felt like they earned
the Good Housekeeping award?
I kinda feel like I earned the 'real crafter' award when I use my rotary cutter.
It just makes me feel cool.
It doesn't take much.
I'm not making something amazing like a quilt
just a few new clips.
I LOVE my new counter tops.
But, I feel a little nervous around them, like I'm going to hurt them.
I know this will pass- just like when we installed the wood floors I wouldn't let the girls roll their Hot Wheels on them.
But in the meantime, I was inspired by Jessica to make a few coasters.
(the counters do not need them, this is just for me until I relax a bit)
I made an iced coffee to test them out.
They work great!
does any one want to come over and help me eat these?
I usually have only one Girl Scout hit me up,
but this year I had 3-
and who can say no?
I have 2 more boxes waiting for me at church!!!
I'm off to have a few thin mints for breakfast . . . .
Happy Easter my dear ones!
