Getting Ready...


I am so ready for spring! I am back to listening to bruddah IZ on my computer and dreaming about Hawaii. I am thinking warm thoughts, putting on an extra layer and sometimes, just turning up the thermostat. I wonder if my little oscine friends outside are thinking the same warm thoughts.

I have been restless being indoors for so long. That has turned out to be good for getting projects done around the house. I've decided to cut up all of my old baby receiving blankets (they were so small and my children were so large that they only ended up being used for about a week anyway) and make some home made baby wipes. The first couple of wipe sessions have gone well and I know that they are gentler on my babies' skin. Of course, we'll be taking the disposables on the road. I'd like to say that I'm THAT hard-core but I'm not. I can be a weak woman when it comes to diaper changes sometimes. Whatever is easy and quick, right?


Springtime will come on soon I'm sure, now that I've got my seeds started. I planted them last night and have them all snuggled up and thinking green thoughts in their warm, wet dirt beds. That's a grow light shining on them. We don't always get much sunshine here anyway and when we do, the room they are currently residing in isn't always the sunniest. Grow lights rock!


And since all of the stores around here are all out of rock salt, I must tread carefully on that path!

Oh, I love that picture of the cardinal! Is that out one of your windows or did you venture outside to take that photo? Thanks for the comments about the dress. She is dying to wear it all the time now... I will have to make her more summer dresses so she won't wear that one out in the first few weeks! I can't believe you've got seeds started already - I haven't even thought about what I'm doing in my garden yet! I need to get started I guess!!!!
