I was going to put up a rub-on on the bathroom wall with the saying "wash your hands". It's the bathroom that the kids use the most and a nice way to remind them to always wash up.
Rub-ons are expensive and I figured I'd be close to dead before I had $ for that so I improvised.
I stenciled the words on the wall and got out my paints. I kinda went with the colors in the shower curtain. Besides my neck being a bit stiff from looking up for so long I think it turned out fine. It was mucho cheap too!
Not perfect but good enough for us. I think I got the idea from Pinterest.
I was busy making an apple dessert the other evening for our care group that met this last Sunday. I was peeling and slicing apples when I noticed a strange sight. All of the apples in the bowl had one bite out of each of them.
This puzzled me. Then I remembered that Dan went to the store for me and picked up some apples.
We are kinda picky about the apples we like. They have to be firm and tart when you bite into them. Our favorites are Honey Crisps and Granny Smiths.
Dan had picked up apples, not noticing that they were not our favorite kind.
We laughed later and talked about the apples not being so tasty. The kids noticed immediately.
When I went to the store I picked up some more Honey Crisp apples and put them in the bowl with the others.
So my best guess is that one of the kids, looking for the honey crisp apple, bit into each apple until he/her found the right one.
I haven't asked the kids yet to see who fesses up. I used the apples anyway, cutting out the bite spots. Hilarious!
Gray and rainy this morning. Got up early and fixed sausage, egg and cheese English muffins for the guys. I forgot how yummy these are - just four ingredients - cooked patty sausage, egg done like you like, cheese on a toasted English muffin. Anyway, they were headed to church to help put tongue and groove ceiling on the new addition.
The triplets have an Easter egg hunt at a friends house later this afternoon. Trying to decide if I should run to the store and get them rain boots. Would be nice for today and the puddles in the driveway that they love to play in. But they are growing like weeds (Kylie is tallest for now). They are all getting taller it seems like everyday. Hmmm, decisions.
We will go to church tomorrow to celebrate our risen savior and then back home for a traditional ham dinner.
I'm going crazy. Funny... I can hear most of you say, "But you already did a long time ago". It's April 2 and I'm SICK of being in my house! I'm tired of and bored with everything. I got up this morning and I had to convince myself to complete the bare minimums for the day. I wanted to lay in bed and watch reruns of something and not be bothered. I guess that is what "cabin fever" is all about.
I want to go barefoot. I want to have the sun, hot and glorious on my face. I want to see flowers bloom and watch the grass grow. I want to be out on the boat and hear the water splashing on the sides. I want to go outside without having to bundle up. I want to wear totally indecent clothing. Scratch that, I'm too old. LOL
I want to be done homeschooling. Only 45 more days of school to complete. I think the kids feel the same way, also. We've had such a cold winter that we have spent many days inside.
I'm guessing we have at least another month of "winter" weather. It just snowed a few inches the other day and it's 36 degrees at this moment. As I look out my back window, I see white everywhere.
I love winter and snow, especially. I think I've hit my quota for this season, though. I'm just itchy for a change and I think changing the seasons would do it.
I know, I know, I know. It will come in it's own sweet time. I can't say anything to speed up the process or slow it down, for that matter. But I can be whiny for a bit and feel better for a few seconds. :) Happy spring to you!
