Week 7 in pictures

I have been a bit lax in my blogging lately.  Just not feeling all that inspired to do it.  I've managed to get a few posts done, but haven't really been around to visit anyone.  Sorry!  Must be because I'm so looking forward to winter ending, even though we haven't had much of a winter, and I just don't feel like doing much.  Ugh.  Hoping I feel more up to it this week.

Last week after the Valentine's Day party for my son's classroom, I allowed myself some down time.  I read a really good book in two days (review and giveaway coming in the next few days) and I watched a couple movies with the kids (another review and giveaway coming :)).  We had a play date at a friend's house and I enjoyed an evening out with some girl friends.  They are all considerably younger than me, which at first made me feel old, but then made me shift my thinking and I actually felt younger.  Sort of.  I tried not to dwell on the fact that one of the girls there graduated high school in the year that I would have had my 20th high school reunion.  The one I never got an invitation to.  :)

Anyway, the Great Kitchen Remodel is moving along.  Doug made great progress and we bumped up the delivery date of the cabinets.  Yay!  We now have the ceiling, walls, and floor all completed.  Doug moved the range back to the kitchen so I can cook again.  (I was unable to cook for a few days last week).  And he also set the sink back up so I no longer have to wash dishes in the bath tub.  So now we wait.  Although I'd rather be waiting for cabinets than having them made already and not be ready for them.

I did manage to take a photo every day last week, so let's take a look, shall we?

This sweet little bird was happy to eat from my feeder and I was happy to photograph him from inside my warm house.  :)

Spent some time this afternoon separating M&M's for a game we will play at tomorrow's Valentine's Day party.

The lilies in my flower bouquet are starting to open.  This is my submission for Be Inspired and Project 52 - Valentine's Day flowers from my True Love.

Nick sometimes gets to make up his own spelling practice activity.  He came up with hip-hop spelling where he rapped his words.  I recorded it because he just cracks me up sometimes.  

Drove past a local reservoir on the way home today to see how frozen it was and got to see all this fog.

I've been told that my eyes are someone's favorite feature.  What do you think?  :)

My friend, Laura, invited us over for a play date to celebrate her son, Jason's birthday.  The kids had a good time playing together.  Keira got to play dress up with Liza.  It was like she had her very own human doll.  :)

So that was our week.  The kids had Friday and today off of school, so we spent lots of time playing (and they spent lots of time fighting).  And we went to the zoo today since the sun was shining and it was a little warmer.  Hoping to post some photos soon.

Hope you all have a wonderful week!
