This is spring in our neck of the woods. We'll move straight from ice storm warnings to "cleaning parties", as in "Hurry up and clean the downstairs--we're under a tornado watch and we'll have all the neighbors over later."

The kids straighten. . . . I make nachos. It's good to have crunchy foods during a storm.

Has anyone spied their first flower of spring yet? Our hyacinths are blooming, and the yard smells lovely.

A Blessed Easter

This is my favorite Easter book; I don't think you need children in the house to fall in love with the story or the illustrations (although children are a lovely excuse to read it over and over).

In this season of hope, I love the simple, powerful theme: Never give up on your dreams.

I hope everyone has a peaceful Easter weekend.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

This is how we roll at this house. Cartoons, anime, and Robin Hood rule!

Hope a bit of the Irish brightens your Monday.
