Picnik-y Spring

March 2011

Yesterday was gorgeous. We don’t see too many warm AND sunny days ’round these here parts. Did you know that it is either raining or snowing 1 out of 3 days in this city?! It’s true. Might as well live in the rainforest. Not too many people know about this particular rainforest, but it's very, very REAL. 
Clouds and I don’t get along very well. I mean, I like a cozy, rainy day just as much as the next person. Good book, hot chocolate, cozy spot on the couch, all that nice stuff. Every couple weeks or so, that would be nice. But when you get one, MAYBE two sunny days out of every week, it starts to wear on your nerves.  A lot.  Last summer we had a “drought”. It only rained once a week. Everyone was praying for rain. Crazy. lol
But I didn’t start this post to complain about the weather. I do more than enough of that. :) As I was saying, yesterday was gorgeous! Sunny, springy, warm! The kids and I didn’t get anything done all afternoon (except for getting the van cleaned out, which it needed desperately). We just played outside and took pictures, and while they were “napping” I had fun editing them on Picnik, my favorite toy. I love that thing! And it’s free, gotta love that!
It’s dark and cloudy again today, but Happy Almost Spring everyone!

Hooray for Spring!


  1. Haha...I feel the same way you do about the weather. Cloudy/rainy/snowy days really get me down in the dumps.
    Love the new blog!!! Its very pretty!

  2. Thanks, it was fun finally setting up a pretty blog! Sometimes I think I'm the only one who notices all the cloudy days. I really try not to let it bother me so much, but it's hard!
