lake days

Sometimes you just have a week (or more) when you could really use a break, but you are in a situation where you can’t take off on a vacation. With grad school and work, I really needed a little break. In the spring, there is nothing like sitting out in the sun amongst the singing birds and the blooming flowers. So two Saturdays ago, I packed up my school books, the husband, and the beagle, and we headed up to the lake for a few hours.

I recommend trying it out.

This week is my spring break (woohoo!), although I don’t really get any sort of break. I am still up to my eyeballs in school and work. Since I’m not really celebrating any break, I can at least celebrate the spring part. Things are beautiful and blooming around the neighborhood.

It haint blue

The porch ceiling is done and ready to keep away any ghosts. Here is a preview of the blue we picked. Two other points: Painting ceilings is messy and rough on the back, and two- we did a hell of alot more to the porch than just paint the ceiling. The post will come soon.
