Happy belated first day of spring!!

Spring is officially here. The weather has been anything but springish lately. We seem to be going back and forth between cool and warm and really I would like the weather to please just choose one and stick with it. I have been feeling like I am getting a cold from all the weather changes. Yesterday was in the mid 70's and today about 10' colder. I have been able to have the windows and doors open and I just love having some refreshing air flow through our home.

On Tuesday I took every thing off of our bed and washed it all, the mattress pad, the sheets and the blanket and when we went to bed on Tuesday night it felt so nice to snuggle down in wonderfully smelling linens. Tuesday for the first time in a long time I was able at the end of the day to have checked off all my to do's for the day. I continued on Wednesday and got everything done once again, then we came to today, Thursday is kitchen cleaning day which is the one day that takes the longest but I got almost everything done. My back started hurting around 3pm so I called it quits and relaxed for a while. Tomorrow is grocery shopping day and I am praying that I can get all I need to buy for under $150. When I need to buy household items plus groceries it always costs a little more.

Last weekend I finally finished my new spring purse but I already dont' like it very much.The colors are very pretty and this picture doesn't do it justice~

I think I will try and work on another one in a different fabric and pattern, but we will see.

Some of Katies stories...

Last Thursday I picked my mom up and we went over to see Jennifer and the grandkids. We had a lovely time. I just have to tell you a couple of different conversations I had with Katie.You have to understand that she is only 5 years old and we all know how cute little 5 year old girls sound when they have to keep that in mind when reading her stories.

I went into her bedroom to listen to her piano and I was sitting on her bed and she was looking very sad, I asked her what was wrong and she said Aiden (her *boyfriend*) isn't her boyfriend anymore and that his mom said he couldn't marry her when he grows up. She was serioulsy sad about this but then she perked up to tell me about Daniel, the next boyfriend but he already had another girlfriend Heather and Heather is Katies friend so she didn't know what to do....until she got Conner as her boyfriend now, and he doesnt' have any other girlfriends. So she said she was happy now with Conner. I know I am old but boyfriends and girlfriends when they are in kindergarten????

Then there was this story~

Me and my mom where sitting in the living room with Katie and I asked her what she did in school today. She told me that her teacher asked them to write about their favortie things. Since she loves princesses I asked her did she write about princesses. She said no and kind of rolled her eyes. She said she wrote about Ice cream and New York City!! I thought this was kind of strange and of course asked her about this New York City thing, she told me that her and Jennifer Chris and Dylan went to New York City on an airplane to go have ice cream with her Mamaw (chris's Mom) and she said it so seriously but here is the problem I know for a fact that her Mamaw lives in Arizona so my mom said Oh Katie you are a good story teller and katie got real mad and said it wasn't a story that it really happened so I said so when your mom gets back home (she had taken Chris to work) and I ask her about this she will tell us you went to New York City in an airplane and she quickly said I didnt' say airplane it was in the car! I said you did say this time me and my mom are just laughing so hard it almost hurt then Katie said well my spanish word for car is airplane. Oh we laughed and laughed and laughed and then katie was upset because we were laughing so much but we just couldn't stop. Now I know it probably doesnt' seem as funny reading it I think it is one of those things you have to be there to get the full version, because when I told Roger he thought it was funny but he wasn't laughing as much as we were, I think it helps if you see her eyes and her gestures when she is telling us everything. Anyway all in all it was a great trip. I haven't seen them since Christmas and they have both gotten so big and tall. Jennifer said that they only weigh 8 pounds apart. Katie weighs 36 pounds and she just turned 5 in October and Dylan weighs in at a whole 44 pounds and he will turn 8 on March 25th.

So I guess that was all my fun and excitement for the week. Roger has been working on putting some sheet rock up in our back shed and the garage, it's a big job and he has been working very hard on it. I am hoping we can take it easy tomorrow, only have a few errands to do.
Hope everyone is having a great weekend so far.

Tomorrow will mark 5 years since my Dad passed away, a very sad day for all of my family :(
