Right Now: April Edition

RIGHT NOW...
  • I am listening ....to the t.v, with Shrek playing as background noise, singing about changes...and I'm reflecting on the changes coming up these next few months.   Graduation, travel, new job opportunities.   Yes, plenty of busy stuff coming up these next few months, it's rather relaxing to just sit and savor the quiet of Sunday afternoon...  

Seems the only thing that hasn't changed is the weather....

There was the BIG storm on April 16th...
with Thing 2 fretting over whether the 18+ inches of snow would force him 
to cancel his plans to attend a concert down town...
(for the record, nope we let him go downtown..
freaky weather meant the roads downtown were essentially dry)
  •  I am thinking that Spring will never find it's way to our home...

As yet another storm settled in this past weekend...

  • I am loving that...I had the opportunity to take a little road trip to Chicago...

     Where I recognized that while our selfie skills leave much to be desired...

we can always ask a random stranger to help us get the right shot!


and I'm loving that I'm not the only one who enjoyed some traveling...
I spent an evening hearing our friend Eric tell tales of his
 adventures to  the Base Camp of Mt. Everest

Selfie skills not much improved...

I'm loving that Hubby got his road trip fix as well
 sneaking out between spring snow  showers to spend 
some time in the majestic beauty of UT..
where he demonstrated mastery of the Selfie Skills
  • I am wanting more hours in the day, and more leisurely weekends.   I still can't wrap my head around the reality that Thing 1 graduates later this month.  Yes, as in graduates from high school.  Time has flown by in that regard.     Graduation announcements are just about ready to mail , and so far, all he's said he wants for graduation is balloons!   Yeah, fear not, when it is Thing 2's turn, I'm confident we won't get off so easily!  

  • I am needing to wrap up this blog entry....with nothing really clever to share here at the end...
Until Next Month....

Monthlies! Good idea. OOh, we'll make some extra red white and blue strawberries for Patrick too unless you tell me he's allergic or something.
