Smitten...

Hello Friends,
Today was the first day of spring break for the boys. Luckily it was nice out so we took a little walk to the pizza place and had a slice. With the bathroom construction going on we can't go too far. The bathroom has been completely gutted and it looks a bit like a scary basement.
I think I'll close the door tonight. Keeeeepy!
Tomorrow will begin my very last year of my 30's! I have some lofty goals set for this year, things I would love to accomplish before I turn 40. I want to be a runner again. I used to love to run. It cleared my mind and made me strong both mentally and physically. Now I walk and I find my mind wandering to things that aren't conducive to de-stressing. I've started already, a little bit at a time. I work better with a deadline so we'll see how it turns out.

This morning the boys asked to play with clay so we broke out the sculpey and went to work. This is what I made. I must say I'm, as the title says, quite smitten with these two. So much so that I may keep them for myself. Then again, I say that all of the time but in the end I put them in the shop for someone else to enjoy.


I hope you all enjoy your Easter weekend! We are doing the egg dying tomorrow and the Easter Bunny is set to hide a bunch of plastic eggs around the house.

What are you doing?

I reckon I'll be dying eggs, too. I think I'm going for a Martha Stewart/beaded and hanging from ribbons on a flowering tree branch. We'll see how THAT goes! lol.
I love this pair of swimmers. I'd like to see them amidst layers of paper cut ocean waves like on flapjack (which is SO weird, but I let Caleb watch it anyway). Look at this image to see what I mean,

Very cute busts! I too have started the last year of my thirties. Not sure what to do for Easter yet. I think we'll dye eggs on Saturady and maybe go to our little town egg hunt. They have it every year but we've always been gone. I think it would be fun to go. Happy Easter and happy running!

I have a huge never ending pile of projects to finish up. Kids to keep happy and such, thankfully I enjoy all of those things. If I just had a few more arms so I could finish things more quickly.

I LOVE the little swimmer couple. They are so whimsical. Hope you have a fun time with your boys on their spring break.

These 2 are gorgeous it's no wonder you want to keep them.
I envy you that you can run, I had an accident years ago which prevents me from doing any form of aerobic/jarring exercises, but I do love to swim though :)

Oh you should see some of the renovations we've done. Lots where abandoned homes, so they were really spooky. I have only 5 more months left of my 30's. I may not look it yet, but man I feel it. I took a few years off the gym and now I feel like I have arthritis....lol Working out really does keep you young!

Have a good Easter!

Sounds like a great day. My boys have been off for a few days.... the novelty has worn off and they are now into fight mode. I put on a movie to calm the waters!
