I'm in the basement if you need me.

This would be the artwork that Abs drew while she was sitting in the third row seating in our highlander.  She was lucky that the tar came up with oxiclean.  Very lucky.  She then had to detail the entire car under the watchful eye of her father.

I finished cleaning up the basement and made room for my sewing machine down there, so I am back at work.

  I took a class several years ago, specific to my machine, but I am having to practice a little to remember everything that I learned.  It's slowly coming back to me.
This machine does everything, I love it!

First order of business was to applique some pillowcases.

Even Em got in on the action and made herself a bag.

Not too shabby!  Junior got a pillowcase and next on my list is a shirt for his birthday, some more bags, and a billion of other things.

Gunner and I were able to hit the road today and get in a 15 mile bike ride.  It's been absolutely beautiful the last few days.  We will have snow dumped on us tomorrow.

A better view, without me, and you can see Pikes Peak.
I'm still trying to simplify my life.  Some days it is better than others.

It's Spring Break this week, so plenty to keep us busy till they return to school.

Oh wow, I know you were pissed!!! I think it would be in those moments I would fantasize about NOT being a reasonable adult and just beat my child:p Not really, but you can fantasize right? So glad for her and you that it came out! Lol:p

Hey there, I just started following your blog and had to chime in... the 3rd row seat in ANY SUV is a scary place. I will not even begin to tell you what I have found in the back of my Suburban, lol. The problem is that we don't go back there all that often. The kids jump in and we go. I have a hole in the back of the middle seat which the kids claim "has always been there" which just goes to show just how rarely I go back there. Anyway, glad you got the mess cleaned up.
