I was tagged by Violet….so here we go!

1. How much space is left on your Tivo or Comcast Box? I don’t own one..but I wish I did…I can’t figure out how to record anything with this satellite!!! 🙁

2. Have you ever bought a DVD of TV Series and if so, which one? Nope. I’ve had “Monk” on my wishlist for awhile…but it’s sooo expensive!

3. What was the last TV show that you watched before reading this message? That would be last night…nope, didn’t watch TV then..thinking….yesterday afternoon while rocking my nephew to sleep I watch “Fairly Odd Parents” with the kids – .

4. List five shows you won’t miss? I assume you mean what shows I MUST see?? If so, “Lost”, “Extreme Home Makeovers”, “Monk” and “Mystery Mondays” on the BBC Channel (Murder in Suburia and Murphy’s Law).

5. Name 3 people to whom you will pass this stick. Let’s see….who hasn’t done this one?? How about Debra (does she even watch TV??), Theresa (cause she’s been neglecting her blog 😉 and Kate. Since I’m not sure these ladies read my blog … does anyone?? … I guess I need to visit them and tag them personally! 🙂

Last night my friend, Ruth, called and invited me and the boys to breakfast at 8am! Not only that! But after breakfast, she wanted to have J2 (8) and J3 (4) stay for a visit while I entertain myself for a few hours! I was giddy with possibilities – 2 hours kidfree! So, I decided to head to Davis and hit Borders. No one asking for anything or wanting me to hurry or whining! I looked at their very messy craft section but didn’t find anything I wanted to own or that I thought my SP4 would like so I hit the magazine section. I think I may have bought EVERY knitting magazine they owned!! LOL

I also got a new Logic puzzle magazine – I’m so addicted. I think I can subscribe….I should probably do that.
So in the next few days/weeks I’ll be sharing my impression of each magazine. If you couldn’t tell from the picture the magazines I picked up were:

Off to make tea and read, read, read 🙂

We were able to sleep in….that right there made this day sooooo nice! We cleaned the house and ran a few errands and then we headed outside and enjoyed the sunshine! Here is J1 on the trampoline:

Eric and I did a bit of weeding and I mowed the front lawn and Eric mowed the back lawn. Eric also put together this table and benches which I hope we can enjoy this Spring and Summer for homeschool lessons as well as eating and entertaining!

Right now I need to figure out how to finish it…stain or paint? And, what else do I need to know so that it will last?! ARgh!!
I called my BIL and asked him to come help me in a couple of weeks. We are going to loose a big walnut tree in the back yard and I hope we will have enough sun to have a bit of garden…but where? And what do I need to the ground here to get it to grow? I know I overthink these things…and that is why I don’t enjoy it. But I hate to go to all the trouble and have nothing to show for it. Anyway, I hope he’ll come and help me figure out a plan for my yard.
Here is J3 (after his bath) and Eric relaxing on the backpoarch after all the work! 🙂

Lastly, here was a little treat I noticed today hidden in the overgrown lavender in the backyard….a bit of Spring color…hope you can see it!

Here is mine: (From HTML 4 Unleashed, 2nd Edition – yeah, I’m a geek!)
“They signal the reader to be alert for a change in subject or style or they can separate figures and captions from body text.” Yep! It’s THAT boring of a topic!!! 😉

I love those Logic puzzles – I love to buy those books and pretend I’m on vacation when I lay out on Saturday morning in my PJs and figure out what Daniel’s lastname is, where he went to school, and what color boots he wore! LOL

Well, look what I found online – Logic puzzles!! So, now I can lay about with my laptop and figure it out!! 🙂
