Beautiful Day

Today was a beautiful day. We started off doing a few things around the house... I let Summer clean a bit. She loves it. She makes messes on purpose, and then says, "Mommy, I need a Clorox wipe."



We opened the windows, breathed in the fresh air, and relaxed.



My mom/Summer and Camryn's Grandmom came over and we took a walk around the neighborhood with the girls and Harley.



After the walk, my mom had to go pick my brother up from school, and I got to work making dinner to put in the crock pot.

I put on my onion mask...



...and made Beef and Cabbage soup.


It was pretty good! After dinner, Joe's dad came by on his motorcycle and we visited with him for a bit. Then, Joe worked on his truck, and the girls played with sidewalk chalk. They started out drawing on the driveway, and ended up drawing on Daddy's car!



The girls are now sound asleep and I am watching Toddlers and Tiaras (which makes me feel like vomiting). Tomorrow my friend Christine is coming over to teach me how to knit. I am so excited! I've wanted to learn for a very long time. I can't wait to make all kinds of things!

I hope you're all having a good week. Happy St. Patrick's Day!!

I watched Toddlers&Tiaras tonight too. That show is...I don't know but I can't stop watching it! Ah!

Good luck on knitting! I learned to knit a few months ago and I just don't get it. I don't have the patience. I like to see fast results in my crafts. haha. I did make a cute knitted bracelet though.

Love the onion mask. I never thought of that. Soup looked great.

Oops on the chalk on the car. Hope they didn't get in trouble.

I want to learn how to knit too. I see the cutest hats around town. Maybe I can learn and have one done by next winter.
