Oopsie, forgot about changing LTP threads! Sorry about that!

Ruth, you're our March winner! Here's a blinky for a future day...

Now on to April! Let's chat it up! :D

Preschool was cancelled this morning, so we took care of some groceries and then went to playgroup for an hour to make up a bit of missed social time. After lunch I was in a better mindset to write and I feel encouraged by the revised daily goal even though the past week hasn't been productive in that manner. Will see if I can do more in the next hour if the boys play well. Then I'll make a beef stir-fry and prepare for church Bible study tonight, with a birthday celebration thrown in for the pastor's wife. (Cheesecake! Butter tarts! Hooray!)

Praying for the Boston victims, their families and our country! So sad!

Thanks for volunteering to be part of the search team! Tea would be amazing. I had some Bigelow Perfect Peach last night and it was delicious! Need to add that to my grocery list.

Dh had a doctor's appt. this morning and then it was off to the new BJs for us. He has been there before, but I had not. It was huge and boy did we stock up! I guess I should be trying to figure out what to make for dinner and if I want to cast on a new knitting project. I finished two baby shower gifts in the last couple of days. One more boy baby gift to go! :) I am really into the book, Hazardous Duty by Christy Barritt.

Time to try regular reply again. ;)

I need to buy some more tea next shopping trip. There's a really good selection at the store where I get meat and produce. I'm running low on herbal teas and I love the fruity tastes of those! BTW, hooray for the good grocery store! :D

I'm torn between knitting, reading and writing these days! I finished the first slipper for Ben yesterday and worked on the second one, kinda hoping to be done on the weekend so he can enjoy them for any indoor points.

I'm making ribs for supper tonight. Yesterday was chicken and scalloped potatoes, turned out really well! I just need to find some energy for the day ahead, feeling like a morning nap might help...

I got in my nap around 9 to 9:30, but still felt sleepy. Even the sunshine hasn't totally woken me for long. Might be a cycle thing, so I won't push myself too hard and will work on prioritising well. Speaking of which, once the kids are cleaned up from snacktime, I'll get them out for fresh air. They enjoyed kicking around their soccer balls yesterday. As for me, I could fill a bag with some of the dirt and needles under one big pine - the last weekend of the month is my village's yard clean-up, so any bags we can have picked up for us free is a good deal (though we do need to get to the landfill this spring with a few household items). And if there isn't enough energy in me, I'll grab my church Bible study books so I'm ready for discussion on Tuesday.

We watched a family movie last night on Netflix, Cowgirls 'N Angels. I liked it. :) Also getting closer to the series finale of Numbers. It's a good cop show and I'll be sad to say goodbye for the second time (since we watched it all the way through when it originally aired).

Ben and I got out for some errands this morning, then to playgroup again. After a snack, he was at the sand table most of the time, playing with blue sand. :) Meanwhile I got to chat with some mums, so that was good for me! In the afternoon, it was dishes, laundry and cleaning the bathroom plus a little "decluttering." Now I'm working on audio editing and might get in an episode of Doctor Who as well. Hoping to finish up Ben's slippers, too!

Slippers are done, on to Tim's pair! :)

The afternoon was busy with a trip to a car dealership. I'm still in the process of deciding whether to go for the low-mileage car that fits in our budget and *should* handle car seats well, or look at getting a minivan in the next year.

Also had car clean-up and laundry to do when we got home because our dinner out didn't sit well with Ben, poor guy. This morning his seat will be ready to buckle into the car and then we need to choose what to do today! Looking at cars makes me want to conserve money, so maybe no matinee. ;)
