I am very satisfied with our weather right now. We hit the 70s today with constant sunshine. I love to see the forsythia and daffodils blooming. I have crocus, hens and chicks, iris and lots of other things coming up, and it is SO WONDERFUL being able to have a window open and a nice breeze coming through the house.
I video-taped Eler Beth playing a song on her ocarina today, and when she gives me permission I'll post it here. She is doing very well, and I'm learning a lot about the ocarina myself. Did you know that the opening music from The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly is done with an ocarina? And the bridge in Wild Thing is an ocarina too. I always assumed it was a flute or piccolo. Her music-reading lessons are going well too. Andrew says she is picking it up quickly. I heard them play a duet a few days ago; he on the keyboard and she on her ocarina.
I think Thomas is taking Eler Beth fishing early in the morning. They have both been tugging at the line to go. I have to say I wouldn't mind a mess of fresh fish myself. I have been "green-hungry" lately, as my mother used to say. I get this way in the early spring, where I really want lots of fresh green things. I was craving turnip greens yesterday, but didn't have any, so I made a big pot of green beans and red potatoes, and that seemed to do the trick. You can't go wrong with that and a pan of corn bread.
I caught up my laundry today. I posted on Facebook that I was $4.75 richer after doing laundry this morning and I wondered when my family would learn to check their pockets. Then this afternoon I found two more one-dollar bills in my last load. $6.75. Hmmm. Wonder what I'll treat myself with with that kind of largess.
Okay, well, I'm off to blog-crawl for a while. I hope everyone has had as good a day as I have had.
