I've been working out.  And I like it-  It's really nice to feel stronger again!

I pulled out my scrapbooking stuff last night.  It's probably been two years since I've done that.

I've been buying a lot of fabric lately.

We are planning a vegetable garden.  We bought seeds and have starts going that are actually taking off!  I'm excited and hope that we will be able to enjoy fresh vegetables this summer.

I'm sick of wearing my black skirts to church.  I'm going to try my hand at making myself a new skirt.

I feel boring cause that's all I can think of for now!

Lately, I have been keeping my computer off.  I tend to spend too much time on here and don't get anything else done.  But here are a couple pictures to keep you satisfied.

I have a new niece :)

I Get It Now

I used to think that people were crazy here.  They would go out in 35 degree weather with just a sweatshirt on.  No jacket, no hat... 

And then yesterday, I left for my baby-sitting job with just a thin zip-up hoodie on.  And the town thermometer read 37 degrees. 

And it clicked.  It's April and for my sanity, I cannot put on my winter jacket anymore.  I don't care how cold it is.  I'm rebelling against the forces and keeping myself optimistic that it is spring.

It IS spring right?  That white stuff they are saying may come this weekend won't happen...  Right?

Some books take me so far away that I have to go outside and remind myself of what is real when I turn the last page.  This series did that:

And now I'm waiting for Aaron to finish the first book so I can read them again.  :)

We got to see this brother two days in a row! 

Walker was a little shy yesterday, today he warmed up some more.

It was nice to visit and hear about his latest adventures.
