:: Oh man, time flies, doesn't it? Last time I posted was March 10, and today is April 15. That's crazy. It has been a little busy in those days, but still. You do what you want to do. Right?
:: It was spring break last week. Tessa and I had a great week of doing so very little. At first, I was thinking to travel over the mountains to the Tulip Festival in Skagit Valley. It would have the added benefit of being able to visit my friends that live up in Bellingham, and also going down the coast to see my cousins in Tacoma. It sounded like a lot of fun.... at the time. And then the weeks went by and I got busier, and busier, and more tired. And then I decided that it was time for a stay-cation, which ended up being great. Tessa and I did something fun every day, but not something that would take a long time. One day, we got pedicures. Another day, we went to the Art Garden Pottery. Terry got in on the game, the day we went to the movie. And we found out that most of her friends were also in town, so I let her have a sleepover. But the best day was the day we didn't do anything. Usually, Tessa is so busy with dance, piano, voice lessons, not to mention schoolwork. She was just as thrilled with being able to sit on the couch, in her pajamas, playing skylanders, and eating all the junk food in the house. It was just a perfect week. I wish there was another one on the horizon.
:: And then spring break was over, and it was time to get myself back together. I needed to get back to my scripture reading. I needed to get back to exercise. I needed to get back to cleaning my house, and cooking dinner. I just had to get back to doing something.
:: I also got back to babysitting my little Kewpie doll! Little Lillavie looks so much like a Kewpie doll, it's funny! It has been fun to have her, again, for a few hours a day. But I have to say, she was not loving being away from Momma again. Monday was a rough day for her, and she was so glad to have Momma pick her up. But yesterday was better, so hopefully we are on the upswing. I will say that I'm out of practice as the mom. Boy, I lost those skills fast. I can no longer doing two things at once. Such a shame.
:: I'm super sad that Dish Network has decided to get rid of Ovation TV. I've loved that channel for all it's quirky shows. I've loved especially at Christmas, they would show all these different, crazy Nutcracker productions. Some of them were absolutely nuts, but I loved watching them just as much the traditional interpretation. I'm going to miss that. I'll have to get some of my own DVD's with all these different interpretations. You know, someday, I'm going to go to a real professional production of the Nutcracker. I love it so.
:: I have a new favorite PBS show. It's called Grantchester, and it's about a pastor that is always getting involved in crime investigations. It's in the spirit of Agatha Christie and I just love it. I've already watched them all from this season, and I'm not sure there is going to be more, but I surely hope so. And Sidney, the pastor, is dreamy.
:: And that is it for today. Hope to see you again tomorrow.
