Saturday AM coffee

I am sitting here drinking my coffee and enjoying watching the birds outside my window. It's peaceful.

Not a whole lot going on here this weekend, other than making three pans of special K bars and rice crispy treats for the marathon all day play practice tomorrow. Yes, the play Annie opens next weekend! We are really excited to see it!

I recently took a trip to see family in KS and OK. While in KS a cousin gifted me with my Grandmothers old slide projector and four boxes of slides. He apparently kept them especially for me all these years.

Unfortunately the projector isn't in the best shape, but the Hubby has taken it apart and has it working well enough for us to look at the slides at least once. When all the kids are home next weekend for the play we'll put on a slide show and check out some family history. One whole box of slides was taken when I was a kid and my Grandparents visited us in AK, can't wait to see them!

Baseball tryouts were earlier this month. All the hard work and dedication Caden put in over the winter really showed. He did fantastic! Definitely stood out. Can't wait for the season to begin!

I am feeling spring fever something fierce this year and have quite a list of projects that am fantasizing about getting done before May arrives. From trimming trees, weed wacking the brush that is encroaching on the lawn, tilling the garden, planting 60-80 more trees, hauling crap off to the junk yard - ya I know you've heard that one before, but the Hubby says its really happening this year (fingers crossed), digging out stumps and cleaning barns.

With all the snow gone we can see that those freaking moles have been making paths all around the pool. Lets hope they didn't manage to compromise the liner.

Anywho, that's all I've got.
Have a good one :)

I frequently fantasize about getting things done, too. I should stop, as it only leads to disappointment.

We have a LOT of mole activity at our school. Molehills everywhere. The school has an autistic boy who can't stand it, he spends a good deal of time in the morning before school running in the field, stomping on them.

It's sort of funny.
I'm sure it's quite confusing to the moles, too.

Wow, three pans of Special K bars.....I LOVE those bars!!!

I'm getting spring fever too. I spent over an hour outdoors today just picking up sticks and branches from the recent wind storm. It won't be long and we'll be gardening....yippee!
