Spring Break day 1 Painting!

Well here I am on day 1 of spring break. Spent a leisure morning drinking coffee and surfing on the web. Now it is time to get busy and start painting my office-den. I wish I had it all done. I love to paint but more when it is warmer out. I am scraping off the last of the border and will be rolling on the new paint soon. Have a wonderful day!

I bought myself the Zumba for Wii today. I love it!! What a fun way to get some exercise. Lot of moves to get down but it was fun trying to learn them all. I only made through one rock and roll routine and trying to learn all the moves. I love to dance and decided this would be a fun way to try to get back into shape. I don't know if I will look like the girl on the box but I am going to try!! LOL

Official Hive Creative Challenge Spring

Here is another entry for the Spring Challenge. This scarf is very colorful and spring like. The ribbon yarn was very difficult to work with. I had to restart it several times. I don't think I want to work with this stuff again. Enjoy

Happy St Patricks Day!

St. Patrick's Day is celebrated on March 17, his religious feast day and the anniversary of his death in the fifth century. The Irish have observed this day as a religious holiday for over a thousand years. On St. Patrick's Day, which falls during the Christian season of Lent, Irish families would traditionally attend church in the morning and celebrate in the afternoon. Lenten prohibitions against the consumption of meat were waived and people would dance, drink and feast—on the traditional meal of Irish bacon and cabbage.

 So wear your green, dance the jig, feast and drink!!
Have a wonderful day!!

Official Hive Creative Challenge Spring!

Here is Rozalin my spring bunny for the challenge. Rozalin is dressed in bright polka dot dress. She looks like she is ready for spring and Easter. She is holding a big carrot, a rabbits dream! I might list her on the Doll town or Etsy. Hope you enjoy!

Daylight Savings Time...

Daylight Saving Time gives us the opportunity to enjoy sunny summer evenings by moving our clocks an hour forward in the spring.

Yet, the implementation of Daylight Saving Time has been fraught with controversy since Benjamin Franklin conceived of the idea. Even today, regions and countries routinely change their approaches to Daylight Saving Time.

I ask why did we have to start doing this again? For years we didn't change our time. A few year ago our wonderful Governor (cough cough) changed this. I am a creature of habit when it comes to sleep. I don't set an alarm I just wake up at about 5:00 am. Do you know what this does to me? I am a mess for weeks, tired and not hungry when it is my lunch time. Yes I woke up at 6:00 this morning, won't work tomorrow. When we change back I will be waking up at 4:00.
As for my children, Blake gets on the bus at 6:20. It is pitch black out. It was getting light when Makayla got on at 7:00. Now it will be pitch black out when she gets on the bus. All the high school kids will be driving and getting on buses when it is black out. A couple of the middle schools will also be getting on buses when it is black out. Dangerous ! Yes just so we can have more light in the evening. Kids will be staying up later and not functioning in school.
Does this save any real utility cost? Facts show it doesn't. My thoughts are if it is not broke don't fix it!!

We won!

Yes we won ! Now we play champion game on Wednesday evening! Way to go girls. It was awesome, I was so excited I could not get any real good pictures. Makayla sunk a 3 pointer right at the half time buzzer! It was sweet. My hands were so red and swollen by the end of the game. I sprayed the girls hair blue, they loved it. I did get a good picture of Makayla and Keanna guarding the basket. The other is Makayla driving the ball to the basket. You girls rock and Good Luck Wednesday!
