Three Cups and a Giveaway Today

Daylight Savings Time always throws me for a loop.  Thank goodness for coffee.


I normally have one, maybe two cups each morning.  Today I am dragging so if I seem a bit strange, it may be all the caffeine.

We had a great weekend.  My mom was here for a short visit and the weather was beautiful - all sunny and warm.  The girls played outside.  They got into hula hoops, jump ropes, frisbees, roller skates, scooters.  It was so nice to have some "new" things to do.  There are some photos here.  Poor Fatty came down with the stomach flu Saturday night and spent all of Sunday in bed.  I am hoping it passes over the rest of us.

It was a craft-free weekend.  I did spend a little time cleaning the sewing room up.  Up for grabs:


You can see it on their website here.  I have two sets - enough for 24 little stockings on a ribbon garland.  The best part?  I have done all the cutting - you just have to sew it up and embellish it.  The bad news?  Because I cut it all out, I can't separate the sets.  Both will go to one lucky person - I will give you until Tuesday night to email me (hillroad at bellsouth dot net) if you are interested.  I will draw a name and let you know on Wednesday.  OK?

Time to do the laundry.  When that's finished, you'll find me playing outside.



Oh, wow! Kids in summer clothes! I can't wait for spring to set in around here. Rain, rain, rain...


I'm so glad you had good weather for your Mom's visit. Isn't spring wonderful!!! LAUNDRY? I guess I should get to doing mine too.


Yep, I need to do some spring cleaning also. Thanks for offering your cute craft kit !!!


yay for spring returning! now if my kids would only get well and stay well - we could enjoy it!

The time change does me in too. I had to drive for a field trip this morning at 8:30am but my body was thinking it was 7:30am. I think I need to start drinking coffee.

Hope Fatty feels better soon. I'll be keeping my fingers and toes crossed that the rest of you don't get it.

Very generous offer but you don't need to include me in it. I made 24 little advent stockings before Christmas.

Yeah, we slept a little late this morning due to that time change. Any more than one cup off coffee, and I get majorly addicted. And now I'm pretty much off coffee. I miss coffeee.

Enjoy the outside time -- we are!


ha! we were all about over-caffeinating and playing outside today too!


Five cups for me yesterday. The time change threw me off, too, but I'm loving the light evenings!
