Yes, it is officially Spring Break. The kids are home and we are looking forward to having the next 10 days together. And although there is still snow on the ground, there are signs that Spring is coming. In fact, I saw my first Robin yesterday, which is always a highlight. Sumo says the biggest advantage for him has been the thawing of the snow and the revealing of all of his lost bones! Look at the ones he has found and been collecting on his bed. Sumo doesn't really care to chew the bones, he just likes to hold them in his mouth and parade around with them and look macho. And I do think he looks quite proud of his collection.
I don't know if you are aware, but if you click on any of the pictures on my blog, they will be enlarged. For example,when you click on this picture of Steve in his office, you will see the near-empty jar of M&M's on his back file cabinet. But the thing that really makes me laugh about this picture is the laptop that is on Steve's desk. As many of you know, Steve is a Macintosh man through and through, and the laptop is really a PC with a MAC sticker on it! Every time I see it, it makes me laugh. And speaking of Mac laptops, our daughter-in-law got a full time substitute teaching job yesterday which will go until the end of the school year. For the job she was given a laptop, and, you guessed it, it's a Mac!! (Steve was so happy!) I think that made her feel even more a part of our family than actually marrying our son!!
As I mentioned in my last post, I had the first installment of year 2 of The Loopy Ewe Sock Club. These are the fun goodies that came in it. A pattern called 'Swirls' by Monca; Cherry Tree Hill sock yarn named 'Wind in the Willows'; a large Loopy Ewe Sock Club tote; a bag of Loopy kisses and a large kiss as well. At first glance, one would think the large kiss is chocolate and I know of at least one person who took a large bite of it, only to discover that it is bath salt. Yum! (Not!)
Well, off to finish up some laundry and pack for a quick get away to Galena. My blue/brown Lucy Bag is ready to felt and K and I have some serious knitting we want to get done. And then there are games to play. Will share more when we return.
Until Next Time....
