One of my favorite things to photograph (and to look at) is bright blue skies with puffy white clouds. Here are some photos from Tuesday!

thank you notes

today I'm joining Kiki and Jess for The Circle! I've linked up a few other times, but since I've been doing photo posts every Wednesday, I haven't been. so I'm linking up a day late, but that's okay. (:

this month's theme is thank you notes - serious, funny, sarcastic... let's see what I've got.

{these notecards are from Target about a year and a half ago - I love the greenroom line}

thank you Mother Nature for proving that the calendar doesn't determine the weather.

thank you three littles for brightening my morning yesterday. it is always so great to get to spend some time with great kids like you!

thank you KinderCubs classes for the short workouts a few times a week. I can definitely say that my v-sit has improved!

thank you Social Print Studio for making me want to spend all of my money on photographs and photo things like magnets and books. {I ordered a set of magnets last night, and I want to put together a photo book from my Minneapolis trip!}

thank you Pinterest for making summer camp planning much easier.

thank you moving for making me do some necessary purging. and also for helping me come across some things that bring back sweet memories.

thank you hairstylist not only for getting rid of my split ends and making my hair seem more manageable, but also for the nice chat.

thank you working in the dining room for making me want to constantly snack on things.


In Its Time

15/52 2014

Well, the weather was crazy again this week. It started nice and warm, and it got up to sixty at one point, but now there's an inch or so of snow on the ground again...

We had a full house at the motel all weekend, and we had a fun visitor among them. We've got a lot going on there, and it won't slow down again until November.

Then at my other job, aside from teaching four classes a week, my supervisor and I are starting to get ready for camp this summer. It feels like so far away, but it's coming up really close.

Wednesday 9 April // day ninety-nine :: I had grand plans for having today's picture be this great picture of the dinner I made, but it didn't turn out as great as I wanted. I made mac and cheese, but I didn't let the cheese melt in the sauce for long enough. I'll try again soon. It still tasted good though!

Thursday 10 April // day one hundred :: giant glass ornament. random picture from the living room. I have no idea why that monkey is on top of the door frame.

Friday 11 April // day one hundred one :: throwback picture from August 1999. I was six and Amy was twelve.

Saturday 12 April // day one hundred two :: starting a grocery list. I forgot the butter last week when I had a coupon...

Sunday 13 April // day one hundred three :: Canadian coins and an empty spice bottle on the butcher block.

Monday 14 April // day one hundred four :: April snow. I woke up to hearing my dad plowing the driveway.

Tuesday 15 April // day one hundred five :: I had a few eggs that I wanted to do something with, so I hard boiled them! I loved watching all of the bubbles.

We got some more snow and ice this week, but now it's in the fifties, so it's going to start to melt and become spring! I can't wait for the grass to turn green instead of brown!

I had another busy week of work at the motel and classes with my preschool kids. It was a slower weekend at the motel, but it's going to start getting really busy very soon!

Wednesday 2 April // day ninety-two :: ginger candy from my manager. it's from Greens N Grains in Egg Harbor, a place I have always meant to go in, but never have.

Thursday 3 April // day ninety-three :: I never want to forget that there was a pineapple doorknocker on the door to my childhood home.

Friday 4 April // day ninety-four :: Chocolate Therapy is the best kind of therapy.

Saturday 5 April // day ninety-five :: I love finding a use for random little things that I find while cleaning. this little platter was a gift from my aunt and uncle when hey went to Mexico. (if I remember correctly.)

Sunday 6 April // day ninety-six :: cloud cover.

Monday 7 April // day ninety-seven :: I had plans of making dinner from scratch, but then I got home from the grocery store and didn't feel like cooking, so I just put a pizza in the oven. I think it was in for a minute or two too long.

Tuesday 8 April // day ninety-eight :: my dad's cassette collection, with a few cassettes mixed in that were probably mine or my sister's. I wonder how many times I listened to that Hanson cassette. I'm thinking that some of these will need to go in my car so I can listen to them!
