Crazy Good!!

The weather here is Crazy Good... It started last weekend and has lasted all week and is expected to run through this week. I can't quite talk myself into believing that winter is really through with us but this weather is incredible.
I spent last weekend out on the deck reading and Scott joined me for a few minutes to soak up some rays.

This was what the pond looked like a few days before that. The ducks have been hanging around despite the ice and now it's paid off because the ice has all melted and the pond is full of quacking ducks. Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night and hear them quacking.

Two pups have sure been enjoying themselves. Scott has been taking them for walks during the week and on the weekend they get to take a nice run at the high school field.

Here's Zoe waiting oh so patiently for me to throw the frisbee. Charlie is off checking his peemail but as soon as he sees her going for the frisbee he's back!

These little beauties popped up this week. The grass is greening up, trees are getting their buds ready and the tulips and daffodils are pushing up and will probably bloom later in the week, way early!

But the absolute best thing that has happened this past week is that THE PEEPERS ARE BACK ON THE POND!! I've been listening to their bedtime lullaby every night! It has been amazing and a full month early! Love it!

In other news, I upgraded my cell phone a couple weeks ago! I bought this absolutely amazing phone!

All I can say is, why the heck did I wait so long??? Oh yea, I waited because I had to wait for my upgrade time and that time is NOW! I absolutely love it! It has so many useful apps. Today I used it to figure out where the heck I was and how to get from there to the mall. I also use it for my grocery list. I just tell it what to put on the list, thanks to Siri, and it makes the grocery list for me. Amazing! I can't say enough good things about it!

We had bowling last Friday night. We were still in first place by 4 points. We bowled a team that we only had to give 60 points to, yea only 60! We took the first game, lost the second (I bowled extra terrible that game) and then the last game we kicked their butts so we took 3 games, two plus totals!! Yea us!! I think we will still be in first place by 2. We only have one more bowling night and then it's position night. Next time we bowl a tough team but the good part is that one of the best bowlers on that team recently had shoulder surgery so she can't bowl and yet she will still have a 160, that's taking 10 from her 170 average! It's not going to be easy to hold on to first place and with several teams so close we could easily slip out of it but we won't go down without a fight!!

I am in the middle of ELPA testing. I've finished my main school, helped with another elementary and supposedly tomorrow I will begin helping with testing at the high school. We have two more weeks to go, then Spring break, then another week before it's all over. It's been a busy time.

It's going to be a beautiful week, weatherwise, so I'm going to try to enjoy it while it lasts. I'm just hoping April doesn't bring ice storms or weather that kills all the beautiful flowers that are trying to bring Spring along.

Have a great week!
