Lots of Weather
Weather: Wow, week 6 of soccer and we’ve had 1-2 games. Geez. What is with the rain? We did pray for rain last year during the drought…hopefully it is helping our water reserves!
I saw a quote last week that said, “If you pray for rain, expect some mud.” Well, isn’t that the truth?
Fun: I’ve been experimenting with some coloring pencils, brands, and markers…am finding some favs and even bought a few extra to sell to friends or for a profit if anyone is interested in that. I’m enjoying card making lately, and just coloring in general. The high quality art supplies don’t hurt!
Exercise: I’m paying my son to be my personal trainer right now. If he does it with me, he gets more pay. We’ll see how that goes. He is saving for an iPod Touch. He wants one SO badly, but he has to earn the money. I’m getting some GREAT help lately! Loving that! He’s learning how to empty the dishwasher, run laundry, and is getting it done, probably not to my standards, but with a little Mom burnout…I’m enjoying the break.
Hassles: My credit card number was compromised. Luckily, though the charge was made a couple months ago, they still took care of it. For some reason I didn’t catch it when I paid the bill. I can’t believe I missed it… An $805 charge to some Marine Store in CA. Geez! Look over your bills! She said it was a pet store and an online transaction. I said, “Um, that was definately an unauthroized charge. Daisy gets dog food, and not $805 dog food!”
Music: LOVING the “genius” feature on iTunes and my Ipod. I mean LOVE it. I don’t know what music services are using it, they may offer something similar, but what you do is, you pick a song you know you want to hear, and it creates a playlist for you based on similar rhythms, tempos, genre. It’s sort of like the Pandora “make your own radio station” I also LOVE for online listening. No commercials, no fees (at this time anyway), and you listen to the mood music you want. You could choose any genre of music for a dinner party or whatever and it would spit them out. The cool thing about Pandora is, if you don’t like a song, you click the thumbs down symbol and it says, “I’m sorry. You don’t like this song. We will never play it again.” Is that power or what?
Today: Preparing for…guess what? More rain. Emptied out a load of Easter stuff to storage. Went for a walk. Planning to get to the grocery today before rain sets in again.
Planning to finish up a few projects, post a few cards I’ve been working on for fun, and clean the laundry room, get through my desk, get a plan for some pork chops. Want to get the kids albums for this year done before the end of the school year. We’ll see!
Let me know if you want to drop in to craft…the house is marginally clean!
