Weird Week

It has been one of those weird weeks. It is Spring Break at school, but alas, staff still had to work this week. The first part of the week is usually exciting because you can knock out all of the projects you've needed to get to without distraction. By Wednesday, you're looking for things to do.

My mom sent us an image this week that said, "I like long, romantic walks down every aisle at Target." It's pretty true for us.

I was texting with her Sunday night while we were in Target, telling her we couldn't get out of the store because there was so much to see (even though we are in there at least once a week).

Just when it looked like we were headed towards the check out line, we got stopped by cute little bowls.

The latter part of the week has been pretty miserable with rain, but a good bit of us got together Thursday to see Cary and Brody one last time before they head to Indiana. We are going to miss having them so close!

Aides of March

There's nothing Paul and I want more than a screen porch on the backside of our house. Until then, we found the next best thing a few weeks ago: an old screen from one of our windows that fits perfectly in the opening of our french doors.

We are all in heaven, especially KT. The cat used to do very well outside by herself, but then she started bolting and we had to put an end to it. This is our great compromise.

With warm temperatures sliding their way in, spring is certainly on it's way. Tips of trees are turning green and it's about time for us to trim before it all begins. There was a horrible drought in late summer/fall and a lot of plant life died. There's a lot to cut away this year!

We started last weekend with our crepe myrtles. Trust me, there was no crepe murder here. 

I also went with MG and Ryan to the Gem and Mineral Show at the Trademart last Sunday after lunch. There were all kinds of rocks and stones, but Ryan was the only one to walk away with anything. My favorite part were the dinner table displays, made completely out of rock.

It's hard to tell what is real and what isn't!

A month or so ago a frozen yogurt shop opened up in the business district. Yes, we're big fans. It felt so good the other day, I told Paul, "Let's walk after work. We can walk the mile to the yogurt shop and that can be our mid-way treat."

The California tart was worth the two miles.
