When The Weather is Nice

I had a pretty good weekend. I got some plants in the ground around the house. I'm still debating what I'm going to do garden wise if anything. J was supposed to clean up his woodpile mess from behind the garage, but that hasn't happened yet. I may just try a couple of containers again. I planted some strawberries yesterday, we'll have to see how they do. I even mowed the dandelion field lawn, though you couldn't tell today. 
Peanut Butter has been getting a lot of vitamin D this weekend. We were outside quite a bit, J had a brat fry for baseball on Saturday. Then some of The Boy's friends came over and were playing baseball in the back yard. PB ran around with them, I was surprised she didn't just fall asleep when she walked in the door. She did put up a fight at bedtime and fell asleep crying, but woke up around 1am and wanted to brush her teeth and have a bedtime story. I don't think she realized it was 1am. She did manage to sleep in her bed all night, huge plus. Yesterday we stopped over at a friends house, her boy is in PB's "class" at daycare. They ran around and had a good time. Surprisingly, she stayed up pretty late and again wouldn't go to bed, so she ended up falling asleep with Daddy in the chair, but she slept in her bed til 4:30 am., Maybe we are on a roll now.
I even got some scrapbooking done in honor of National Scrapbooking Day. I was running out of newer photos to scrap and did a few from a couple years ago. A few I had been meaning to do for a long time but it took a challenge on Scrapjazz to get 'em done. I thought I was out of ink in my photo printer, but I shook up the cartridges and squeezed some more photos out of them to do. I have been enjoying late afternoon scrapping.

I also went on a cookie bender this weekend. I made it a month without them and to celebrate I whipped up a double batch of oatmeal chocolate chip ones. I did manage to get the shred done everyday that I was off. Shreadheads challenge this month is to exercise in someway every day for the month of May, so I'm going to give it a whirl. I asked PB to pick which level I should do to day and she picked two. After doing three for the last few days, I though, this will be easy. Um no, I think two might actually be harder for me than three.

A cookie bender-- that is hilarious! I still can't believe you can manage scrapbook time. I need to follow you around sometime to see how you do it all!

Mmmmm . . . cookies. Crap. Now I am distracted.

YEAH for getting a workout in to go with the cookies - they may not cancel each other out, but I am sure The Shread helped off-set them. And YEAH for beautiful weather! We keep going back-and-forth between nice and awful . . . 70s one day, low 50s the next.

Those pictures kill me. I SO would have freaked out instead of grabbing the camera. LOL
