- Note to self: zoom on phone is digital; not optical [and worthless.] But given the right parameters the phone CAN take some pretty good pictures! [All photos on this post were taken with my phone.]
- I cut my hair this week. At work. With paper scissors. When I’m tired of it, it just has to go – ha. [I’ve been doing this for years and have had only the occasional mess up.]
- Finished the week up with a little quality time with my new chipper / shredder – is it crazy to admit how much I enjoy pushing stuff through and seeing it come out in little bitty bits that will nourish my garden? Okay, so I embrace my quirkiness! Speaking of that -
- We gathered the youngsters together to enjoy the St. Paddy’s Day parade downtown. Lots of good green fun! [Legend has it that my great – great –great [?] grandfather was found on the side of the road with no memory, a head full of red hair and an Irish accent.]
- Afterwards we enjoyed the traditional meal of shrimp po’ boys and gumbo. [Ha.] What can we say? We’re loving this little Cajun place not far from our offices and wanted to share it with them.
- It was Spring Break for youngest and when he’s home we can almost always plan on having a house full of boys [young men.] I’ve said it before – we’re [very] happy to be the go-to house, still.
- He set aside time to be with his brother a few evenings, and of course we had some family time – just us. As much as I love that time, I find great joy in knowing they like to hang out together too.
- Loving all the mixed media stuff I’ve been playing with lately [haven’t done a scrapbook page in WEEKS!] It reminded me of my old purse that was so popular a few [?] years back – lots of compliments on it this week too.
- Still, I’m planning to scrapbook – and printed over a hundred photos [January – March] at Walgreens yesterday [- there’s a 10c coupon this week!]
- And I pulled out the sewing machine – I found a skirt I LOVE at a thrift shop and it’s about four sizes too big [not exaggerating – it could be a dress!] so I cut it down and will use the leftovers for [you guessed it] mixed media projects.
