What's Up?

Well, it's Spring Break, that's what. We went to the coast for three days and had a blast, despite cold weather, wind, and rain. We stayed right on the beach in Newport, wandered around the Bayfront, and visited the Oregon Coast Aquarium where we got up close and personal with jellyfish, sharks, and a rather large octopus. The girls wanted to move to Newport and live there forever. I'll put up some pictures from the trip as soon as I get them organized.

In other news, the top secret Easter knitting project was finished just minutes before midnight on Saturday. I never imagined it would take so long (try two and a half months), but the girls seem pleased, so I'm happy. Keep an eye out for pictures of that, as well.

The past 24 hours have seen rain, snow, sunshine, moderate to heavy wind, hail, and bitter cold. The word schizophrenia springs to mind. I think March may have some issues. Counseling might be in order.

I'm almost halfway through my 16th round of 30 poems in 30 days and plan to keep going all the way through April, which is after all, National Poetry Month.

We're soaking up the last day of Spring Break and doing absolutely nothing today. Bliss.

What are you up to?

Thanks Nicole! I hope you're sticking around in 30/30 - it's getting awfully quiet in there.
