March: the lion with lamb moments

March 2014

Kim’s Friday Finds are where we go to share snip­pets of what we’ve dis­cov­ered and uncov­ered in the past week. My find today is best put into a col­lage for March. Still cold, windy and rainy most of the month, not much ven­turing out­side happened….we stayed inside sur­rounded by the warmth of family. The trees and flowers were not giving up their spring color just yet.  The Investigator cel­e­brated a birthday and most of our time was cen­tered around the babykins.

So today I want to share some family quotes that sum up our month. A month that came in like a lion, but was full of sweet, lamb-like moments that I’m thankful we didn’t miss.

At the end of the day, a loving family should find every­thing for­giv­able. ~Mark V. Olsen and Will Sheffer, Big Love, “Easter”

Rejoice with your family in the beau­tiful land of life! ~Albert Einstein

To us, family means putting your arms around each other and being there. ~Barbara Bush

Our most basic instinct is not for sur­vival but for family. Most of us would give our own life for the sur­vival of a family member, yet we lead our daily life too often as if we take our family for granted. ~Paul Pearshall

And thank you for a house full of people I love. Amen. ~Terri Guillemets

Now, on to Nancy’s Random Five Friday!

1. Last Saturday was *cut down trees*  day. Entrepreneur felled a couple of trees that didn’t sur­vive the winter and one to open up the canopy so grass would grow in an area that con­tin­u­ally washes out. Peanut counted the annual rings on the largest one and we esti­mated it was about 25 years old.

2. Twix is two month old this week. She’s come a long way from the 3-week-early pre­emie she was last month. She’s more social and will actu­ally make eye con­tact when being held…which is all. the. time! At around 9 pounds, she’s grown out of most of her new­born sleepers.

3. It was a bumpy week with the warm/cold fronts doing battle and col­liding over­head. Temps ranged from 40s to 70s causing more stormy weather…and more tor­nado watches.

4. The veggie garden in the back­yard still lies dor­mant. Entrepreneur made a first run through it with the tiller, but it needs a lot more work before it’s ready for planting. Hope we can get our act together seeds in sooner than last year.

5. This week was Crazy Week at Peanut’s school and activ­i­ties ranged fro Crazy Hair Monday to Pajama Thursday. Wednesday was Favorite Team Day, and she knew exactly what she wanted to wear! I think the purple and silver pom-pons are an espe­cially nice touch.

Hope you all have a fan­tas­tical weekend!
