First day back in school! The kids seem to have bounced in just fine, but mom had some trouble sleeping last night so I am a bit on the woozy side. But we marshal on!
They say that when you’re in Chicagoland, if you don’t like the weather, just wait 10 minutes and it’ll change for you. I offer as proof:
This morning. Not quite sunrise – I forgot! – but maybe around 9ish. Rain, strong winds, gray.
A few hours later, the sun was pushing through. It was a nice effect, shining down on just the flagpole. Now most evidence of this morning’s storms is gone and we have temps in the mid 50s. The kids are done with school and going outside to play. It’s a great start to the new school quarter. Yay!
How about you? How’s your day been?
My son saw this one and quipped, “Special delivery!” LOL

Well … I feel this way in Spring. 😉
I’m not really all that creative though.
You Are Growth Oriented Like Spring
You are a profoundly creative person. You are always growing and self-renewing.
No matter how old you become, you continue to have a youthful and hopeful energy.
You are optimistic and cheerful. You think the world is a bright and colorful place.
You are always inspired, and artistic expression comes easily for you. You make the most of your experiences.
One Kiss Per Yard
Walking up to a department store’s fabric counter, the pretty girl said, "I would like to buy this material for a new dress. How much does it cost?" "Only one kiss per yard," replied the male clerk with a smirk. "That’s fine," said the girl. "I’ll take ten yards." With expectation and anticipation written all over his face, the clerk quickly measured out the cloth, wrapped it up, then teasingly held it out.
The girl snapped up the package, pointed to the old geezer standing beside her, and smiled, "Grandpa will pay the bill."
Hahahaha! I wondered how this one was going to end! 😀
Have a great weekend!
School starts next week and I’m still putting together the kid’s assignment cards. Part of me likes the tedium of filling out little forms, as it were, and part of me finds it … tedious.
And I just realized I haven’t lined up my Friday Funnies! Better get to it! Laughs are important. 🙂
It sure was pretty here today! We even got into the 50s! This is midday 04-04-2013.
03-01-13 In like a lion or lamb? I vote lion. Cold, snowy, yucky.
03-08-2013 A beautiful sunrise for the last day of school this quarter.
03-15-13 Cold. Rain. Gray.
03-22-13 A lovely day!
And due to an unfortunate camera folder failure (Shut up! Quit saying “operator failure!”) I don’t have a snapshot of 03-29-2013, but I DO have the weather report, and as you can see, it was a beautiful day. 🙂
Easter Sunday, the last day of March was definitely gorgeous, and on the warm side too, so that was awesome. I’d say it clearly ended “like a lamb,” thereby showing once again, that sometimes those old wives tales have merit. 😉
Well, I’ve got one blog disconnected from this one! There’s a few more to do but bit by bit I’ll whittle them down, then I’ll switch names. It’s been sort of a “perfect storm” of sorts that’s caused it to happen, but it’s not a bad thing, just a tedious thing.
Today was so pretty, even the robins came out to play!
Midday 04-02-2013 I can’t believe it’s April already! Almost time to get my garden stuff! I’m so excited to be able to do that this year!
How about you? What are you planning for Spring?
