Hey moms and grandmas, come on out and play. It's recess time!
Wow, some bird is out there singing its spring happy mating song for all it's worth! I don't know what it is but I can clearly hear it in the house with all windows closed (it's rainy & 39 degrees). It's a cardinal or a robin, I think. Noisy critter, LOL.
I have a dentist appointment (cleaning...I have no cavities) this morning, and then I'm going to do a bit of shopping. Yesterday, after I got home from my bit of shopping, then I got the email from my favorite clothing store, with a special "friends and family" only discount offer. At least it's still good today, so I shall perhaps treat myself with something. At a minimum, if I can find a pair of black jeans, I will get them. I love the fit of their jeans, and the black jeans I have from another store ride up and look like floods when I sit down, which I don't like as well. I successfully found the yarns I needed yesterday and have one slouch hat nearly done. It would be completed except the directions weren't very clear when it came to crocheting the band portion, so I had to rip out what I did and fix the directions, otherwise the hat would have only gone on a small child's head, LOL. A friend told me about the PBS series "Call the Midwife" so I have some episodes of last season to watch, and I've DVR'd the current season so I can watch those after I finish season one. I tell ya, this technology thing is good, LOL. (I know, me, watching TV? Yes, it does happen, on rare occasions!)
The happy wanderers had a good day yesterday, aside from the dust storms and high winds. It's supposed to be very rainy today so they're finding "touristy" things to do...finally going to the Four Corners (ds has wanted to do that every time they go and my dad wouldn't drive the 20 miles to do it...but that's good because now DD gets to go too!). DD is really enjoying the trip, and enjoying being with her brother. She even posts on fb how much she loves him, LOL. They are good for each other...way closer than a lot of siblings with similar age and gender differences.
The cat very obviously misses the kiddos. I halfway didn't believe dh when he complained that the cat wouldn't leave him alone Saturday & Sunday while I worked. He wasn't kidding around though, LOL. I got the full dose of it yesterday. She would NOT leave me alone, no matter what! Poor girl. I think she misses ds the most because she loves to snuggle with him (or on him!) when he watches tv. But, she's frequently in dd's room too at the foot of her bed while she studies. I bet she will be one happy little girl when they get home Sunday!
Here's a picture of her from yesterday..."In Jail"
