Sunday Share: Week 21

It’s Sunday of a long weekend. We’ll be singing Happy Birthday to Queen Victoria tomorrow. It’s been raining all day here and now that it’s 6pm I’m just want to put on pajamas and stuff my face with Double Stuff Oreos. It’s fun to make quadruple stuffs with them. Perhaps I’ll just open ALL the cookies, scrape the delicious innerds in a bowl and eat it with a spoon. Or just dip the cookie in it. MMMM Oreo dip.

This week’s reads are sure to delight. Feel free to share a link in the comments below of a post you enjoyed this week, even if you wrote it.

I hope all you mothers had a fabulous day. Whether you got breakfast in bed, supper from your significant other, handmade gifts or store bought gifts or gift cards, hope it was all in the name of love.

Today in church when Father asked all the mothers to stand for a blessing, I stood up, too. DW laughed so hard she was crying. She thinks I wasn’t listening, but really I just wanted to show my support for all the moms.

Sunday Share: Year 2 Week 19

blog

Welcome to May. The sixth of May to be exact. Just a reminder that next weekend is Mother’s Day. Now’s your chance to plan something. Or set a remind to call your mom (or, at least, someone’s mom).

Our gardens are happy again. I mixed some compost and peat moss into the soil. Then I planted three new rose bushes. Our veggie garden got an upgrade when I added some fruit. A strawberry plant and blueberry bush. May summer come soon and may my plants flourish like the weeds I know I’m going to have to pull.

While we’re waiting for the weeds to grow, here are some good reads…

It’s Sunday. It’s raining. I’m trying to make the boys clean, but I’d have better luck trying to teach Chinese Calculus to a barrel of monkeys. It’s their own mess, too.

The peppers are coming along nicely in the living room. As is the maple tree. We have carrots, cucumber, beans, peas, and lettuce seeds anxiously waiting to be planted in the garden. We just need to get past the last frost which is somewhere between now and May 21st. I’ll probably plant them next week and keep them covered.

Until then, here’s something to read…

MApparently, M is for mystery. I looked all over town yesterday for it and couldn’t find it at all. My get up and go got up and went taking my motivation to write with it. Oh well. I found it this evening. It was in the bag of chips and bowl of salsa that I just devoured.

Here comes a new week. Lets make the most of it!

I skipped The Share last Sunday in lieu of the A-Z Challenge. Sorry ’bout that. I had a successful week to start the challenge, though. I didn’t miss a single letter. I didn’t use a wrong letter, either. In light of a successful week of challenging, I thought I’d share some posts I read during the challenge that I think you should read, too.

I’ve got nothing else to do, anyway. It’s snowing and it’s going to snow for 8 inches. Snow day predictor says there’s a 99% chance school will be cancelled tomorrow. If it is, I’ll go for a run at 6 am instead of packing lunches.

Stop laughing, DW. I’m serious. Mostly.

Our week off from school ends today. Tomorrow they are back to the learning box. I didn’t make them do as much math as I intended (for which they are grateful). We did practice tying shoe laces. I know there are “easy” methods, one of which we originally taught Crash. However, these “easy” methods often turn into knots when they come untied. So we are practicing the old fashioned way. Bang, the 6 year old enjoys the practice and is getting the hang of it. Crash, the 10 year old is getting the hang of it, too, though it frustrates him. So does everything else that seems like work.

While we’re practicing shoes, here are a few good reads from this week…

The journey of a thousand posts begins with single word. This is my first post in my journey to my next 1,000 posts.

I hope you have adjusted well to the time change. You probably haven’t, though. It’s okay, none of us have. Especially the kids. Stupid clocks. It was nice to see it light until 7:30, though. Soon, all around the world we’ll hear the old adage “but it’s still light outside!” come bedtime.

We’re on the road for a few days as this is the beginning of March Break for us. No school this week. It’s like spring break, but without the spring. We’re getting a snow storm Tuesday, so it’s definitely not spring yet. I’m kind of excited for the snow, but at the same time I’m looking forward to sun and warm days.

While you’re waiting for spring here are a few good reads!
