Sprouts- These are signs. Praise Jesus that things are thawing out around here. And there are even some things blooming in the backyard. I am glad that these daffodils got planted in the backyard so we have a sign of when Mrs. Lee’s Daffodil farm may be ready for a visit by four slightly obnoxious children and a mom dying to capture a photo with all children beaming and focused on the camera.
Mr. Rooster’s frostbite thingy on his head is healing up quite well. Did I ever tell you that I have quite a dislike for birds? When I was a child I was petrified of them, but now that I am a mommy, my kids would never even know that I didn’t love the things with their beady eyes of death. Really, I am so thankful that these precious feathered things are gracing us with many yard eggs a day. Because omelets are wonderful (not that I am whipping those up every morning, but a girl can dream).
I just celebrated my 34th birthday- woooohoooo! I really feel so much better than I did a few years ago when I was either full-time nursing, or pregnant, or sleep deprived or all of the above for 5 years straight. A full-nights sleep and only having one child in diapers will really help a lady’s composure. That along with depriving myself of refined sugar has made a huge difference in how I feel. In case you missed that sentence, I am on a doctor-prescribed diet that puts a NIX on refined sugar, corn syrup, peppermint mocha creamer, etc.
I told Caleb that I really wanted a picture of me with my kids for my birthday, this is the closest we got to that goal- me, my children, one of my nephews and my nieces- all of us with our eyes closed.
I am ever grateful that he decided to replace the stereo in my car that broke two years ago! It is awesome and plays CDs, plus I can hook my iPhone up to it and play music from that. Happy Birthday to me! Now if I can just wean myself from my addiction to talk radio, I’ll be good to go.
We spent the whole day outside today and it was such a blessing. It seriously made me consider going “unplugged” this summer? Anyone else want to play?
