Last week was a *long* and *messy* one at school and by the time I got home on Friday, all I wanted was a cold beer. Ever have a day like that? Anyway, after I took a few moments to get into weekend mode, I started to notice some signs of spring around our yard. Look at these green leaves sprouting up. Yippee!
Apparently Cleo is feeling the same excitement for getting outside to enjoy spring because she has been attempting everything she can to escape the safety of the the house.
This sweet little bird came in the mail Friday from Wendy, which helped very much to cheer me up, and she looks great on our kitchen windowsill.
This was one of those weekends when I had no schedule, but a big to-do list. I worked on a project for an upcoming class at Reminisce, finally unpacked and did laundry from our vacation, put away some winter clothes, and I started working on a couple hand-carved stamps for upcoming mail art swaps. I took a trip to the grocery store, bank, gas station, Hobby Lobby for 1/2 price frames... I even made time to work out, make muffins a la Rachel, and finish reading The Poisonwood Bible, which I started on spring break. All in all, a very productive weekend, which puts me in a better frame of mind to start this week.
