I’m attempting to get back to normal, so here’s what’s been going on in my life at the moment. :)
This week has brought some severe weather to my area! On Monday and Wednesday, we had not only tornado watches, but actual warnings (which is rare) and we ended up in my closet a few times like little sardines, lol. We don’t have a basement or storm shelter so my closet is the safest place in our home as it is in the center of the house, away from all windows and exterior walls. It was humorous and a bit stuffy to be in there with all four kids, haha. Stephen was at work both days so he didn’t have the pleasure of crouching on a closet floor, like I did.
Yesterday, you could really see and feel the aftermath of the storms. It was windy all day and the high was significantly lower than it has been. Our driveway, the road, and everyone’s yards were covered in debris. I believe we’re supposed to have similar weather today (wind, I mean) but then have a warm and lovely weekend.
We’re heading into spring break here. Most of the schools around here had spring break this week, but we are having ours next week. Maggie’s birthday is on Monday and then Easter will be the following Sunday so I like next week for our holidays. I’m thinking we should go to a few outdoor places and enjoy the weather. Maybe pick strawberries at a local place one of the days, and go to a nature preserve not far from us on another day. :) I’d like to take Samuel to a playground, too, but everything is either covered in pollen or it’s soaking wet. :P Ahh, Georgia’s spring.
I am currently reading the cozy mystery, A Scone to Die For by HY Hanna. It’s pretty good! I had thought about ditching it yesterday after having gone through an emotional roller coaster while reading it this past week (because it will likely be linked in my mind to the event in the future) but I really want to find out what happens! And I like the characters. :) I’m reading it as an eBook on my Kindle Fire. It was only 99¢
Wow, Elizabeth has been waking to nurse even more lately. Neither of us have been getting enough sleep (or, maybe she is since she sleeps in much later than me, I don’t know). But goodness, I guess I need to up her food or something because she’s waking every hour or two and it’s getting to be a bit much! But just look at that face, I can’t be mad at her, lol.
Okay, so I need some input. What do you do with your spices? I cannot stand my current arrangement!
For one thing, the wall holder I’ve been using for years is not large enough anymore because I have (and use) so many different spices now, so it needs to go. The other problem is that I want ONE kind of bottle/jar for my spices – the look of random containers does not make me happy, lol. So, where do you keep your spices and seasonings, and what containers are they in?
