still winter

I was hoping that spring was Really Springing, but here we are getting another big round of snow.  Oh well, it’s a good excuse for Butterfinger Hot Chocolate.  Yum.  Although, I couldn’t find it the last time I was at the store…hmmm….maybe that gets phased out when bathing suits are getting phased in!?!?

A few weekends ago G took the kids to a winter festival – sledding in the closed off street, snowball throwing contests, hot chocolate, etc…so that I could have a Day To Myself.  Pure Bliss. 


I had this stack of fabric that I had purchased on a whim – not really knowing what I was going to do with it – calling out to me…I was thinking funky spring skirts at first, but then decided I wanted to see the fabric more often than that. 



I started the day by making these curtains for my craft bookshelf.  In an effort to stay more organized (and so that there aren’t always piles of supplies on my dining room table) I moved this bookshelf into the dining room.  She needed a little dressing up though, no?  So far it is keeping me much more organized, and it makes me happy to see the cheery 70’s like fabric.



Then I went to the movie theater – at noontime – to see a movie, By Myself!  I bought my ticket, my popcorn and my giant soda and went in and picked out a seat to the movie Coraline.  It was a beautiful movie (but would have scared the pants off of my kids – I know it’s supposed to be a kids movie, but yikes (!) kids getting their eyeballs stolen and buttons sewn on instead…).  I was there for about 5 minutes when my phone vibrated (I had turned the sound off like a good movie-goer should!) with a text message that the kids had tired out already and they had all come home at 1:00 instead of 6:00.  So instead of a Whole Day to myself, I got a few hours, but it was still wonderful!
