Outside my window … it was a glorious spring Sunday. We spent 95% of it outdoors. And the other 5% sweeping floors.
I am thinking … exhausted kids are good kids. Thank you, front yard mud pie factory.
I am thankful for … a husband who forces me to put work aside and have some good old fashioned fun. Often.
I am hoping … to make the family Rosary a more regular occurrence this week. We’re between basketball and baseball seasons at the moment, so this should be easy, right?
Noticing that … outdoor muddy days bring more laundry, more sweeping, and more baths, but I don’t mind a bit.
A few plans for the week … preparing for my big girl’s birthday celebration (she’s 15 on Friday!), an overdue library run, getting back into an exercise routine, and re-committing to Lenten progress.
From the kitchen … baked ziti, homemade bread (I am determined to master the 5 minutes a day method), and cupcakes (No Lent today!)
Around the house … 40 Bags in 40 Days continues … I think I “owe” Lent about 5 bags right now. No problem. We’re going through the bedroom closets.
One of my favorite things … My clothesline! I washed 4 loads today and only ran the dryer about 20 minutes for some socks and undies. I don’t know if it’s the simplicity of working with my hands or the thrill of reducing our electric bill, but that silly clothesline brings me inordinate joy.
