....74

perhaps i am part cat
the thermometer reached 74 yesterday, making it absolutely ridiculous to stay inside, unless you are a sleeping girl under the age of three that is. so eliot and i commandeered the porch, had a snack, soaked up some rays and then got down to some serious stuff. for eliot this of course translates into hunting for worms. for me, it meant reading until my bum fell asleep and then reviving it with some yard work. once i convinced myself that i actually wanted to shovel up the soppy pile of rotten leaves lumped around the basketball goal (you know because i might shoot a few... yeah right...) it meant success for eliot's quest. after the worm massacre (because i still cant convince him to put them back into the ground) i came up with the most brilliant game ever. pick up as many sticks as you can as fast as you can! i get the feeling these kinds of kid cons are not going to last for much longer. dang. i did think about sewing yesterday. i thought about skirts, but couldnt bring myself to leave the sunshine for the dungeon that is my basement. i think once we settle into more typical springtime weather, i will get on that. that and shaving my legs on some sort of regular basis again. hmm.

My parcel came yesterday - YAHOO! Surely I owe you more money - it was huge! Thanks so much!

And I had to shave my legs this morning - the skirts beckoned. Enjoy today and tomorrow, because of course the weekend will be cool.

Cheers!

look at you all striped up! 74 huh, I can't fathom it just yet in our neck of the woods. We have a game with our kids called "a nickel for every pine cone you pick up". One summer they almost broke us. I hope they do it again this year.

This time of year is really the only time of year I can tolerate Kansas City. I LOVED yesterday's weather (and today's wasn't bad either!)

it's kinda funny when you start conning your kids and realize that you were once the victims of your parents' tricks. warm breezes and pink flowers blooming all around here. happy spring.

Love those socks. Sounds like you guys had a great day. I love it when they fall for the con games, but I can't help but feel a bit guilty :o)!
