Anyway...the weather today was absolutely beautiful....it was about 16 or 17 degrees....that's Celsius, NOT Fahrenheit, so....what...(I'm crap at this and I can't find my conversion chart)...I'm guessing....mid to high 50's (or so!). Got up and around this morning....did some laundry. No...that's not completely right....I did ALL the laundry!!! What a great feeling!! If I ever say that it "looks like a washing machine threw up in our yard".....this is what I mean.....
The picture is a bit blurry, but.....this is what our "laundry area" out in the back of our house looked like for most of the day!!! There was no room to hang anything else!!! The only downside to that was when I had to bring it all in and fold it. That took awhile, but it's done and I'm a happy camper!!! (And I was wondering where that pink shirt was....it was "hiding" at the bottom of the laundry basket!!!!)
Since Easter is coming soon, the boys and I started on our Easter decorations that we do every year. I decided that this year, since I have an aversion to boiled eggs and even the smell makes me want to
hurl turn my head away,we would not be boiling eggs, we would be "blowing" them!! So...we had quiche last night and scrambled eggs this morning for breakfast....and colored the shells this afternoon!!!
A couple of years ago, my mom sent an egg dye kit...and every few months or so, I run across the package and think to myself that I should put it with the rest of the Easter stuff. So...today....of course...could NOT find it, so had to resort to boiled water (which I am okay with!!), vinegar, and food coloring. Here is how we started.....
(Note to self: next time clean clutter off kitchen counter before taking picture for blog!!)
After doing the eggs, we went out into the yard and contemplated doing something with the "herb garden"...which consists of rosemary, lemon grass, some oregano, some 'other' stuff....and some tulips that have mysteriously come up.....hmmmm....wonder where those came from!?!?!
And yes, those are flamingos watching over the "foreign" tulips....(Of course, I have flamingos in my yard!! Did you honestly think I woudn't?!?! )
Then it was back into the house to put a pizza together....I had made the crust dough earlier and cut up toppings and the boys put it together..... They worked....and Mom had a beer!
Koji the pizza man.....
