ten on tuesday

1. I am ready for summer to be here. Last week we did some work on the yard and it's looking a bit better. Our yard needs a lot of help. The lawn is super uneven and there's a big pine tree that interferes with the power line so it needs to come down. I mowed the lawn on a few days ago and the grass is nice and green. I love mowing.

2. Sam has perfected his scowl. He has a great glare and gets mad when I laugh at him when he makes it. I tried to get a picture of it today.....not much luck. The last pic is pretty close.

3. Last year I got an old chair off of kijiji for free with plans to recover it. I finally settled on the fabric that I want to use - I'm just hoping I don't regret using a pattern that can't be crooked.....and that I can pretend to know what I'm doing......

4. John and I loved this song that we heard to a movie preview ad thing, so I used an app on my phone to find out what the song was called. I'm so cool. Everything at Once by Lenka

5. I'm coaching Brian and Elijah's soccer team this year. Their first practice was cancelled because the field was too wet I guess. Lame. When I was a kid, soccer was only cancelled when there was lightning. Getting wet was just part of the game.......I guess I wasn't 4 though!

6. For the first time in our married life, I have friends. I mean, I've always had friends....but now I have friends that I see regularly and stop by each other's houses whenever. It is nice. A few days ago we invited one friend over with her kids because her husband is gone for work. We had a great visit and I am glad that I have friends.

7. I was listening to this song today and was reminded how much I like the Flight of the Concords -

so funny

8. We went to Disneyland over Easter break with the High school show choir. It was great and the kids did great on the super long bus ride there and back.

9. I made some of this today. I didn't use this recipe, but it was similar.  John's mom makes this sometimes, and always packs me up some to take home cause she knows I like it so much.

10. John came home from work with some seeds, so he is in the backyard planting some with the kids. I like that guy.

Looks and sounds like you've got yourself a winning guy there! I like the picture of him carrying/pushing a half dozen sleeping kids through Disneyland. :-)
