It’s Spring Break and my kids are here. Most of them. Kelly will be here in a couple of days. The girls are taller, even since Christmas!
The little artists are busy. A while back I painted the front closet door and the back of a bookcase in chalkboard paint. Best idea I’ve had in a while!
The princess dresses are a huge hit! Yay for the consignment store! Two dresses, two skirts, two pairs of sparkly shoes, a tiara, and a flowered headband in the hot colors of pink and purple all for about $60. Big fun!!!
My son, Dave, is trying to solve my Sirius radio challenges. Progress is among us!
We have dye for Easter eggs. And a mini max Big Green Egg to play with, on loan from a friend. (Not enough time for shopping before they got here!)
Alas, when we woke up this morning we discovered that the refrigerator had gone on vacation. It’s working at the moment. We’re debating how much food we dare buy at the Farmers’ Market. There appears to be an excursion to Sears in our immediate future. Which is kind of ok because the dishwasher is on its last leg, too. How do they know? Do they have meetings while we’re sleeping and decide that life would be more interesting if all the food spoiled?
I think it may be a conspiracy!
Somehow, though, it doesn’t feel like all that big a deal. The sun is shining. The early veggies are up in the garden. The girls are pirouetting around the living room. Bill is actually off for the week. And we’ll just eat all the oysters tonight!
As the old story goes, one of the desert mothers of the Christian faith, Julian of Norwich, once experienced a vision in which Jesus told her, “…all shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of thing shall be well.”
I’m going with that! We are blessed!
