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

Yuck on Ruth's snow!  We had thunderstorms and then a cool spell, should be in the 70's again tomorrow, yay! 

My dh has been out of town for a few days, I'm working on some of my projects while he's gone.  Also getting a super good cleaning in our bathroom.  Today washing blankets to store for the summer.  Always need extra linens on hand for when my oldest ds and dil come over and decide to spend the night.  

Thinking about crocheting a quick colorful throw for the living room.  We recently painted, it looks nice but everything is so beige-y....need a pop of color.  Also saw an idea for spray-painting designs on pillows, will let you know if I do that how that goes!

Rain hasn't showed up yet here, but we've been inside for cleaning. Floors are done (minus the kitchen, will see if I have a spare cloth or get to it after more laundry) and two loads of laundry on the go. Still need to clean the bathroom and decide on supper - a hole showed up in my meal plan since there aren't enough tortellini leftovers for a second dinner. Ben and I might take Hubby out for lunch, in which case I could pick up a Safeway rotisserie chicken and some potato salad...

I must get back to knitting in the next few days - I'm itching to do it, yet I've also been tired in the evenings and didn't think I could keep my mind on it. I could really use the slippers I started for myself, so that might be a good project to pick up first, unless the boys pester me for theirs instead. ;)

Our tub was the last thing to be hooked up, today. It had a broken part and that would take a week to get here, so we went for a new shower kit. I have a bunch of clean-up tomorrow but first I'm going to try out the shower for myself, hee hee.

Busy day here, with periods of quiet computer time as work was done in the basement but also organising in the closets and drawers of the bedrooms. Lots more could be done, a good start made on a form of spring cleaning. ;) And now I appear to be caught up with my book reviews, too! Hoping for a good night's sleep and then plenty of energy for grocery shopping and cooking after preschool.

Ruth, I hope your day was productive and your haircut as you wanted it! (I'm so picky, I attempt it myself now, tsk tsk.)

Hoping to rest a bit today and piddle around the house.  Had a tiring weekend.  Temp was 80* and sunny both days, yay, so started in on outside work.  

Also went to my ds and dil's Sat night for a pasta dinner and get together with her parents and some aunts and uncles and cousins.  A group of them including my ds and dil ran the half-marathon in St Louis early Sun morning.  

Yesterday was also my dh's birthday...after church he wanted to hang around home most of the day, tilling the garden, etc...dd and I did take him to an ice cream place and my mom had us over for pizza in the evening.
