Outside my window: the sun is out and the weather is warming up quickly…signs of Spring are everywhere!
I am remembering: our trip to the Star of Texas Fair and Rodeo this week with our friends Karen and Paul. I’ve never seen a pig race before, but it was hilarious! Alex’s favorite part of course was the petting zoo.
I am thankful: that I can share a coffee with my Mom at our favorite local coffee shop Dazzle Coffee every once in a while on a day when I really need a break!
In the kitchen: homemade strawberry jam. I finally canned my first batch of homemade jam – and it was so good I’m not sure I will ever buy store-bought again. We’ve been living off Aunt Stacie’s jam for a while now…I decided it was finally time to try my own.
From the garden: more sugar snap peas…they are literally overflowing in the garden. They grew right through every freeze we had all winter long and when I went out to finally pull them today so we could start prepping for our spring garden, I realized they were still growing!
From the Schoolroom: We spent some time the past couple of weeks studying and reading about Saint Patrick and the history of Saint Patrick’s Day. Here are a few things Alex enjoyed most.
One of my favorite things: Sunny, Texas days. It took Alex less than 10 minutes to fall asleep tonight after playing outside all afternoon. I think that’s a record!
