Blah, Blah, Blah

That's how I'm feeling. I blame it on the gray. I think there was some sun on Friday, when I had the day off. I have a vague memory of taking a nap on the couch in the warm sunshine. Sadly it's not been seen since then. The other crappy thing about gray is that it's hard to tell what time it is. No shadows or moving sun to tell you if it's morning, early afternoon or late afternoon. On a semi-good note, the temps are a bit warmer this weekend and we are having some meltage.

On another semi-good note, I believe the forecast is for above freezing temps all week so we will have more meltage.

So like I said I had Friday off. Teacher's had to work completing report cards in the morning and then having conferences from 1-4. In this position I don't work conferences. Of course I don't get paid either. It's a trade-off. Our testing went well and I am almost finished with 2 of my schools. Hopefully by Tuesday it will be done and I can concentrate on my home school. I enjoyed the day at home catching up on some chores and taking that nap!

The rest of the weekend has been uneventful as well. I did a little cooking/baking. I made pizza for Scott and I Saturday night. H wasn't here Saturday night as he has a conference in Ft. Lauderdale/Miami this whole next week. The temps there are in the high 70's/low 80's for the whole week. He's so lucky! Not only that he will be able to eat Cuban sandwiches at will!

Today I tried baking these English muffins for the first time. It didn't sound like too difficult a recipe (compared to some I've seen) and I think they turned out pretty good. The recipe makes about 1-1/2 dozen so they will last for a while in the freezer.

Amber took these darling pictures of Quinn in an outfit that her Uncle Tyler sent her all the way from S. Korea. It fits her so well.

Look how much she's enjoying wearing it! She's so funny! And smart! And I'm not a bit biased. Not a bit!

Speaking of Uncle Tyler and S. Korea, I've been trying to get in touch with him since Friday morning when I heard about the earthquake and tsunami in Japan. Thankfully it seems the tsunami went away from Korea and I've not read or heard anything about problems in Korea, it would still be nice to hear from Tyler and hear that he's ok. Please Ty, when/if you read this, please get in touch somehow.

Two pups are not too happy with me this weekend. It's too messy out to take them to the field today. They would be a muddy mess. If they were better behaved I could take them for a walk, on a leash. But they are not well behaved. Or maybe I should say they are out of practice. I haven't walked them on a leash in a looooong time. They follow me from room to room and look at me with these sad eyes.

These last few months waiting for summer are the hardest. I need some color in my life! I keep buying these little pots of flowers to cheer myself up.

It's a very temporary fix. Hopefully we will have a couple sunny days this week. Plus maybe just a little more daylight in general, now that Daylight Savings Time is here.

Have a good week!
