Today was our 10th wedding anniversary, I can’t believe how quickly that went. It feels like we’ve lived such a lifetime since our wedding day, but also…it was brief.

We’re celebrating in Mexico. This month is a whirlwind, with big, exciting things happening I’m not quite ready to announce yet. But I’ve also been planning and preparing for this trip, so I really haven’t posted much. I’m working on that, but for now. This is where I’m at.

I’m juggling a lot as May gets started, and I haven’t posted in 2 weeks. I’m getting over strep throat for the THIRD time since the beginning of April, and we’re getting ready for a family holiday this month. But April was a great month, with a spring break trip to Mystic, CT and my first quilt finish of 2017 (I know, it only took until April).

A spring tutorial! Hannah’s been more and more interested in flowers this year as they bloom all over. She’s been picking dandelions everywhere we go, and digging holes in the mulch in the backyard with the gardening tools her grandparents gave her. I do not have a green thumb, but she’s fascinated. So I’ve been brainstorming some gardening projects we could do together, for me to learn some things and for her to watch things grow.

I am still trying to get a handle on my collage game in a post-Picasa world. It’s not pretty, but I’ll get there. Adam tells me I’m the last person on Earth who just wants a grid template of vertical pictures. I’m very old fashioned in my collage, apparently.

He got neutered a few days ago. I did actually get out my Silhouette Cameo and decal his cone. Not the first day he came home, that was just too much sadness for the world. But as he’s recovered, and just bangs into walls and runs in circles because he can’t scratch himself, I couldn’t help myself.

It’s always time for a haircut when I go into “bun phase” or “Detective Odafin Tutuola phase.” I didn’t make it to Fin Phase, but I was sporting a lot of buns. I hadn’t had a cut since last July. I got it cut almost two weeks ago, but I am behind on life after Miss H’s 5th birthday.

I miss Picasa. It could be such a pain about some things, but it was perfect for making collages with a ton of photos. I haven’t found anything better for them to replace it.

You are the absolute worst.

The end.

Here is a picture of a squirrel in the snow.

The end the end.

 

Today is my actual birthday, but last Sunday we went to see Elephant & Piggie: We Are in a Play at the New Victory Theater. That was my birthday celebration. My mom pointed out that they were doing a sensory friendly performance, I saw it was the weekend before my birthday, and that’s what I wanted. No presents.

A few days ago, Hannah and I went out after school to show our support for our neighbors at the Islamic Society of Monmouth County. It was Friday prayers, first Friday of the month, and we met outside to let their members, and anyone else driving by, know that we support them. Hannah and I made a card the day before and delivered it to one of the organizers from the mosque.
