Yes, we are half way through our spring break. The weather has turned out to be very nice, though our first day started out very snowy. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to do a spring break this year, but then this week became very busy with family in town on different days. Plus, the kids and I really needed a break, so we took this week off.
My sister is in town for a 2 day class for her job, and she’s staying at a hotel with a pool. The kids and I met her at the hotel yesterday and had a great time swimming and sitting in the hot tub. It was the same hotel we stayed at when we first moved here 4 years ago. It brought back lots of good memories.
Then today we met my dad for lunch. He came out to bring my niece back home. She had stayed one night with my sister. It was great to see him. We got a little messed up on the time we were suppose to meet at the restaurant, but we did finally hook up and it was great.
Now the kids and I are home relaxing. My sister is coming over for dinner tonight, I’m making homemade pizza. But right now the kids are enjoying video games, and I just finished creating simple business cards for my online work. It was a lot of fun to put together, and a huge blessing because I had bought business card templates a long time ago. So I could print out some cards without it costing me anything except the ink. My mom has been asking for cards because she’s been telling all her friends about buying their Amazon things through my links on my work blog. So many of them have said, “Oh yea, we buy from Amazon all the time. We would love to use her links, just give us her website.” It’s so much easier for my mom to just hand them cards instead of trying to remember the address and write it down. My Amazon earnings are really growing from family and friends buying through my site. It’s such a blessing.
I haven’t written much this week, but I was having a bit of a break too. I’ve been dealing with a sinus headache and staring at the computer screen for a long time makes it worse. So I’ve been relaxing, watching movies and I even pulled out my coloring kits. I love doing colored pencil color kits made for adults. It is relaxing for me and something I really enjoy doing. But I’ve been so busy trying to finish the baby blanket that I haven’t had time for any of my coloring. It was so relaxing to pull it back out again. I do have a cross-stitch project that I’m working on for Paulie that I really need to get back too. But I don’t think with this sinus headache I’m dealing with, if I could work on it right now.
Well, I’m off to get the pizzas put together before my sister gets here. Plus I do think I’m going to do some writing tonight. I’ve been writing a series of articles on homeschooling at my hub pages, and I’m trying to finish up one on putting together a homeschool portfolio. So I might work on that tonight, again, depending on how I feel.
And as usual here’s a picture to share. I took this last summer up in the mountains. Oh, I can’t wait for that kind of weather again.
