Busy Time...

School is getting really busy and hectic about now with only 3 weeks or so til summer break.

We are hosting another track meet tomorrow and the weather man is predicting an 80% chance of rain. Hopefully, for the kids...it will hold off.

I mowed the yard AGAIN this past weekend. My goodness, things are turning so green so quickly around here. I noticed some hummingbirds looking for a snack so I cleaned up the feeder and added their favorite nectar. Those little guys are amazing to watch, of course...I didn't get to photo of them, darn it!

Enjoy your Wednesday!

Blackberry Difficulties!

Okay, my son got a new Blackberry Curve and I got the hand-me-down Razor.
Anyway... last night I tried to download some songs from itunes to his phone.
Can anyone give me some pointers on how to do this.
Am I just making this more difficult than it should be? Thanks,

Terrific Tuesday

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter!
The weather wasn't so great but we had a great time with family and food! My goodness, I ate so much but that's what happens when I cook & bake...I want to eat it all. The kids in our family are getting too old to hunt Easter eggs but when you mention putting cash
in them, they all of the sudden aren't too old after all...lol.
Signs of spring are everywhere. I was just looking around today and noticing how green everything is getting. Here are a couple of cute tea towels I got at Dollar General. I found a tutorial for making tea towel aprons over at Julie's Blog.
These would make such simple cute gifts.
Speaking of CUTE aprons, I found the LUCY apron pattern over at the Brassy Apple. You have to check it out!!!
Are these not the cutest kitties???
I found these iron cats at a flea market over the weekend. I love cats and have a few friends that do also, so I will have to think of a crafty way to put them to good use.
Also grabbed this 4 yds of adorable fabric for like $2 bucks.

Chilly Sunday

It was definitely much colder today than yesterday. We get a few warm days here which makes you begin to think that spring is here then, BAM...another bone chilling day! Yuck!
We took my dad to the airport today, he is on his way to Alaska as we speak. He retired from education here in Oklahoma a few years ago and since then, has gone to Alaska to fill in 2 or 3 times. He will only be gone til May 20th or so but it's still sad to see him go.Easter is one of my favorite holidays!
Aren't these little bunny envelopes cute! I think my kids at school would enjoy making these. They can be found on the Martha Stewart site.
This is just a little FYI I wanted to share.
You know, you can buy these plastic over-the-door hooks for like $1.99. Of course, you can use them to hang whatever over-the-door but I saw another use a while back and it was to use them over your cabinet door by the sink to hold your hand towels or dish towels.

I hope everyone has a great Monday!
