April showers?

I thought April meant rain not snow! Then again I should know better since April is Colorado's third snowiest month. First is March and second is November. So even though we have had some beautiful sunny and warm days this spring already, today is WINTER again. I am cold and unmotivated to do much of anything.

I have been a busy little crafter this week. I made this the other night and started on this one. I love just hanging out and "yarning" like Emma used to call it.

I took the 2 littles to the grocery store the other day for their big re-grand opening party. That was our excitement for the day. Free food in the form of little tiny samples. Kelli enjoyed everything. Jack was in a 2 year old mood and didn't want anything until after Kelli had eaten his sample. She even got her picture taken by the artichoke guy. He was serving chili with artichoke leaves for dipping. She was really enjoying hers so the man asked to take her picture for his promo department. It will probably be on their website soon. I'll let you know about it then.

Kelli also had cake and sushi and bread and meringue cookies and oatmeal and waffles and cut up fruit and brie and crackers. I think that's it. Pretty funny since the girl could eat mac and cheese every single day of her life for lunch. Who'd a thought she liked anything else?!

Tonight we are going to an open house for our friends that have just finished a house to flip. They were hoping to do kind of an outdoor thing, but the snow is really coming down now. We'll have to see how that turns out.

And the snow has really put a damper on Jack E's potty training! LOL I guess once it warms up he'll be back to peeing in the grass. But for today, he's just using those pull ups!

I'm with you on the rain vs snow in the middle of April thought. I live in KS, and although it's been warmer and rainy, that changed today when it got cooler with a slight chance of snow by morning. Brr. I'm so ready for warmer weather, but not really ready for the hot days of summer.

Dontcha just love the hyperbolic dishcloths! I need to make more, but haven't had a chance to lately.

My daughter is sixteen & she only likes to go to the grocery store when there are samples; yet, she's one of the most finicky eaters when she's at home. Go figure.

I'm forwarding the hyperbolic dishcloth link to my younger daughter...she would love that!
Just wondering if the April "showers" have anything to do with Jack E's peeing??? (((chuckle)))
