Outside my window: it’s a bit cloudy and cool, but not too bad. We’ve been getting some rain on and off lately but the temps are staying fairly warm and we’ve got some sunny days ahead.
This weekend: we started packing some boxes for our impending move. We’re hopefully going to sign the papers on Friday and then start moving this weekend, but there are still a few balls in the air so we’ve only been packing things that we won’t need anytime soon and holding off a bit so that we aren’t surrounded in boxes, but if we get the okay from the FHA today we’ll probably start kicking it into high gear.
We also: picked up MM’s birthday present finally. We’d been thinking of waiting until after the move to go get it, but I was worried that something would come up and we’d be too busy to go, so yesterday I convinced Dan to take an impromptu trip to IKEA to get this and this. We also looked at lots of furniture, sort of day dreaming and plotting future furniture purchases.
I’m reading: a few books right now, trying to decide which book I want to be reading – so I guess that makes me currently in between books. I was going to read Anne of Windy Poplars on my kindle but for some reason it is still in copyright and not available for the Kindle yet, so I ordered a copy from the library and I’m kind of just flitting through a few books while I wait. Pretty soon I’ll need to start reading The Imperfectionists by Tom Rachman for my April book club meeting.
Things you should click:
- This week’s hot spot in Simple Mom’s Project: Simplify is basically a choose your own adventure – I need to decide which final area of the apartment to give a little TLC to – although in truth, every area is about to get a whirwind dose of TLC with the move coming.
- I’m very tempted to try growing my own Wheatgrass with the kids for Easter this year (tutorial from Make & Takes) – anyone else done this?
- Another project that’s caught my eye is this simple Spring Branch craft at Frugal Family Fun Blog.
- I love the Bloggess. And Nathan Fillion. That is all.
One Two last pictures to share before I go: couldn’t choose between this picture of the kids tackling their daddy Hop On Pop style or another random picture which shows off one of BB’s new summer dresses.
