Around the house...

March is my least favorite month of the year. It's long and dreary and gray and I am so ready for spring. When I was pregnant with Owen I swore up and down that I would not have a baby in March. Although having a baby in March would probably brighten it up! It was also the longest slowest month in the academic year and now that I don't teach it doesn't bother me as much as it did while I was teaching.

March is a month that doesn't provide me with much in the way of creative inspiration. I realized I hadn't picked my camera up in quite sometime so the other day I made a purposeful attempt to capture some of the things going on around the house. While they aren't artistic they are still a representation of our daily life.

Owen playing a game on the PBS website.
I believe this was day 3 of a Scrabble game Morgan and I are playing. It's still in progress. I think it's my turn.
Ludwig is also quite ready for spring. He loves to lie in the sun and has had to make due with the sun coming in the front window.
A paper globe waiting to be hung in the dining room with the other two.
Art projects and school papers on the dining room table waiting to be sorted and filed.
Chocolate waiting to be chopped up and used in a recipe for cookies. They have since been made and mostly eaten!
Dishes waiting to be put away. Our dish washer is out of order so this is an almost daily chore.
Owen's room in need of some tidying.
The trimmer waiting to be put away after Morgan's haircut.
I believe this is a Gedesa. I found it at the grocery store. It's a bit like a plum but lighter. I loved the sort of heart shape to it.
I also have some pictures I took during the outdoor adventure Owen and I had at the arboretum after school last week but I will post those another day.

You should post the sponge puppets we made. That was crafty. Plus they are funny looking.
