Another Snow Day?

Yes, the title is correct. We are indeed having another snow day. Boooo!!!

I think the groundhog and Mother Nature got their messages crossed. It’s Spring! Where’s the warmer weather and the spring showers and the sun? I wish the temperature would start staying closer to 50+. I want to wear flip flops and t-shirts without a coat.
This is the 2nd snow cancelation in the last few weeks where the ridges have gotten fun sled riding, snowman building, snowball fighting snow and I, well I barely have any. But because many children live on the hills and the busses have to drive the roads we are canceled. At least this time it looks like my backyard may still have enough of this quickly melting snow that the kid may get to play a little before its gone. And since they’ve already taken spring break (3/26-4/1) away and now we only get Friday and Monday off, I guess an extra day off this week isn’t horrible.

I wish that we were getting more days like last Saturday. It wasn’t super warm but close to 50 and sunny. A great day for an Easter Egg Hunt. It was a fun time. New friends invited us up to their house for their annual hunt and the kids had a blast. There were roughly 13 children ages 1-5 and they loved it. Even the little ones had fun looking at all the candy filled eggs that littered the yard. And afterwards they munched on hotdogs, dirt cake cups and candy.

It was a very fun time!

I hadn’t really had time to try new craft projects the last few weeks mostly just worked on more of the same items. It’s been a little busy but I’m hoping to try some new things the next few weeks. Hopefully, I can get a few things finished before my mom comes for a visit. That will keep me busy for a while and maybe I’ll have a few things she can take back to my niece! I can’t wait!

Hope everyone has a great week!

It’s been a while

Wow! I just realized its been almost a month since I last posted!
I’ve been a little busy I guess. During the last few weeks I’ve seen friends, crafted and went on vacation.

Oh how that vacation made me realize how ready I am for summer. I can’t wait for the sun to shine and the weather be above 60. I’m tired of these dreary cold and snowy days. We recently were able to take a trip to Aruba. It was my first trip out of the country and I loved it there. The sun, surf, and warmth were incredible. It was 85 everyday with a 15mph breeze. href=”https://infinitelovecrafts.files.wordpress.com/2013/03/20130312-105457.jpg”>20130312-105457.jpg
Mornings were so relaxing. Up and to the beach for coffee, reading and a beautiful view.

And the rest of the day relaxing with new friends and lovely dinners. We shopped, ate and took a Jeep tour of the island to see more wonderful views. I wish I had more pictures to share but most are still on my cam

<a
One of my favorite dinners was at a restaurant called Marandi. There were 16 in our party and we had a huge table on the deck over looking the ocean and a fabulous view of the sunset. It was wonderful.

But what a rude awakening it was upon our return to the north. Haha. We left sunny skies and returned to gloom

But getting home was great. I missed the kid and it was nice to hug him. So much so that I kept him home from school the next day for mommy time.

Since being home I’ve tried to get back into the crafting groove. I’ve tried my hand at more tutus and flowers. I like trying new things and was excited when I figured out how to make a flower. I’m still working on not burning the edges to much but I’ve been happy with my results so far

A little more practice and I think I’ll get it.

I have also decided to take piano lessons. Every Tuesday I will be learning away. I’m pretty excited but very nervous. I haven’t played an instrument in almost 20 yrs. And that was the trumpet in 7th grade. Wish me luck!

Hope everyone has a great week!
