Random and Rusty

Apparently I've been away from this for so long that I didn't even realize I'd posted once in February already. I uploaded pictures into a new folder for February, not paying attention to the fact that I had one already. 

So let's clear out the cobwebs and get back in the game.

My mother always swears that March is the longest month of the year. I just as firmly maintain that February is the longest month. Granted, usually we have way more ice/snow/yuck than we've had this year, and I am totally fine that we haven't had it. 

Still, this month, for only having 28-29 days, takes foreeeeeeeeeeeever to me. The lengthening hours of light are most welcome and lack of yuck makes a huge difference, but as I am solar powered I just want to sleep! Why, why, WHY can we not just sleep February away!?


One morning I had breakfast with someone famous:

It may look to you like he's failing at using the Force to clean up the pulverized bits of Chex, but don't be fooled. He is merely channeling my inner incredulousness (is that even a word? It is now.) that these children who shall remain nameless didn't clean up after themselves. Again.

Care Bear has gotten into a cookbook fit, though not all of her concoctions are edible. This one, in fact, involved borax and food coloring and more mess:

As usual, she is selectively deaf like her Uncle Hinrew, and neglected to put it back into it's Baggie after playing with it. It spread dangerously close to oozing off the marble and onto the rest of the bar. She was delighted.

The days have consisted of school and karate and homework and snacks and kid laundry and all the usual. We did get an absolutely gorgeous weekend to play outside, but that's another post entirely. 

We've had visits from both PaPa (a brief one) and Grandmama (a longer one) though I didn't get any pictures of them! Sorry. =/  It's been nice to have roads clear enough that they could make the trip out. I wonder what the weather will be doing for Spring Break at the end of March...
