:lol: If it would only work!!!! I'll have to ask lil one if I can borrow it!!! LOL!!!
Sooo....it is wall to wall sunshine, and still cold! I hear the birds, and I see buds on the trees...I think spring is coming, but I am not convinced yet.
PS-I heard the same thing about the groundhog.....
knitter~it's cold here....and gray.

Soooooo ... spring is here knitter63.. at least in Colorado... after a trip to the gym I spent about 4 hours out in the "wilds" just experiencing nature where I hiked with my dog, observed lots of interesting animal tracks, including some fresh "big cat" tracks.... It was a mountain lion and my dog and I never really knew just how close the magnificent creature was....... Made for an exciting, wonderful day.....
Sooooo... after school I picked up the kids, and brought them to Home Depot. We picked up paint for the dining room-- a pewter grey-- and all the necessary supplies. (The vertical blinds are kind of a rose color.)
Then we went to Moes' for dinner, and came home. While the kids hung out, I taped all the windows and molding, and moved the china cabinet a few feet. I'm all set to start painting tomorrow afternoon.
Peter will be pleasantly surprised when he gets home from Disney.
Soooooo... my calculus teacher emailed me and wants to recommend me for the AAUP Outstanding Future Teacher Award for my college's chapter. I think that's pretty nice of her. I've never been nominated for anything like this before...it's pretty cool

Soooooo...tonight I get to see some friends I haven't seen in years! They only live a couple hours away, but we haven't managed to get together in the 4 years they have been there. Tonight they will be in my town, so we are planning on meeting for dinner! WooHoo!
Have fun rws.....
Soooo... the dining room is all painted; it came out nice!!!!
I went to Home Depot and kind of settled on rug I don't love. Serves me right-- I got it home and it's too big!!! I'm debating between getting Brian to help me LIFT the china cabinet so I can squeeze it underneath and just giving up and returning it.
Of course, the rest of the house is in total turmoil, so I have lots of cleaning to do.
It's so rewarding when you get done with things like that! Good luck with your rug dilemma.
Baseball season is in full swing, no pun intended, and my hubby and daughter have such blissful looks on their faces. It is a holiday atmosphere around here.
Soooooo... 11 families showed up to my classroom cleanup today. Amazing energy! The kids were bionic. They even washed the pattern blocks and unifix cubes! My closet is 100% organized, labeled, and the floor is clear. Feeling quite appreciated (this was my Teacher Appreciation Gift) :wub:
Love it! Camping tomorrow and Monday, Braves tickets next Sunday... life is good

Sooooooo after all these years I've never watched a single Katie Couric "CBS Evening News" show....... Now I understand she's leaving.... Guess that's my loss .......
Same here major.
But it must be tough being terminally "cute."
As a morning show anchor she was cute and played the part well. As a news anchor "cute" doesn't really come to mind. She didn't have the commanding presence you'd expect of a news anchor though. She has plenty of money, so she doesn't need to worry too much about being let go.

I have a bundle of bananas left...
We just made a batch of peanut butter banana & choc pb banana cookies. Going to make a banana pineapple cake... Still have 8 bananas... UGH!!!! I'm thinking of making some more cookies & then freezing them!!!
So...today is one of those extremely rare days being a sub when state testing is going on, but I assist the SLP, so I won't be seeing kids at all for the 1st 1/2 of the day! I'm sure I'll only work w/ a handful; of kids today. I have my mini laptop & having fun online. This is also a once in a lifetime day that I have this particular classroom to myself. At the school I'm at on Weds, the school psych, psych intern, & special ed teacher are ALL in here too. :mellow:
Sooooooo Diznee....... make some oatmeal banana nut bread........ that's soooooooo good........
We decided on some banana pb popsicles!!! Those will be good!!!
I may have to try the oatmeal bread... I don't really like nuts...
I have been making this super yummy banana cake... but I don't want to wear that out!!!
Major have you seen the dark chocolate pb?!?! It is really good!!!
They sound good......... and I'm not really that much into chocolate.......
Banana chocolate chip muffins would be great, Diz!
MMM... those sound good Mrs.C... do you have a recipe?!?!
Well, I'm down to one banana... I'm still thinking of making some more cookies...
We got a bundle of ripe ones they were taking off the shelf at a store for FREE!!! & we had bought a bundle so our 2nd bundle was RIPE!!! LOL!!!
I've used this one a few times--it's a good one!
Enjoy the potassium, Diznee........

Thanks Mrs. C!!!!
Sooo.... all the goodies came out good!!!! The banana pineapple cake.... so YUMMY!!! I subbed a banana for an egg, used baby food applesauce instead of oil...only used a little oil. So it was a little healthier than it could have been!!!
Banana cake was bfast!!!
