What is with the deliveries of love these days...Jude also received a package from Uncle Phil with DVDs (Thank you!) this week. Love is in the air. Okay birthdays are in the air at least. Today we received Aunty Sara's (my sister) birthday love...not only for Jude but for me too. My birthday is next month. I want to peek but I am going to wait because the older you get the fewer presents you have to open on your actual b-day. Not to mention my birthday present is pretty much a trip to Europe. Only 8 more days and then Czech & Italy I go.
I am failure at the whole lent thing...I did not memorize any verses and today when I opened the bag of mini eggs for the kids I was overwhelmed by chocolate heaven. I succumbed. I am so weak but man oh man were those little morsels tasty. Okay, I am over it...the guilt that is. I can wait 10 more days for Easter like I committed. At which point I intent to have a yummy hot cocoa complete with whipped cream...and then resume my healthy eating choices. Wait, I'll be in London so I will need to have fish n' chips. Ooo...and then a run I suppose.
Another highlight of today...ants on a log. Yep, I introduced my children to a classic childhood snack. Celery, peanut butter and raisins. Or currants in my version, I only had golden raisins and they are not "ant" like. Another successful snack option. On that note, the berries are California grown these days...wahoo. My own strawberry and blueberry plants have little fruit buds. I love summer fruit!
