If it's windy, it must be Sunday...

Last Sunday we had horrible winds all day - 40 miles an hour or so. Just miserable to be outside. Today I get up and hear that horrible shriek all over again. I was dreading getting dressed and going to church in it yet again. I decided not to wear a dress (last week's mistake - 'it won't be that bad' I said to myself -HA!). Today ended up not to be quite as bad as last week, thankfully. We generally have fabulous weather but when the winds kick up, watch out!!

Thank you Kellie, Laurie & Lisa to your nice comments on my fundraising post. After I re-read it I thought it was a little harsh & and I was feeling like a Scrooge. I am so glad that I am not alone but at the same time I am sorry that others have the same issues. If that makes any sense!!

I don't know if anyone reads "O" magazine or not. I don't subscribe but probably get an issue a year. I bought the March issue (the one with Oprah wearing green - how festive!) There was a great article on a 30 day 'de-tox' from email. What a great idea! I don't get too much exciting email but I get a good bit of junk, I mean stuff, that I really don't have the time to read but I still do. I am not sure if I can do 30 days but I haven't checked it since Friday so I'll see how long I can go. I would like to eventually have the discipline to just delete the stuff I know is not pertinent to my life and read the real letters from friends, open the 2 bill alerts I get and move on. We'll see. I am trying to really carve out more time for myself - I have a pile of books I want to read and a list I want to get but won't until I think I can read them. I actually started a book I have had for about 6 months last night and I am going to try to get in bed earlier to have time to read more. I usually fall asleep after about a 1/2 page - that's what happens to me at 11pm!

Today after church my daughter and I decorated eggs. Actually she did all the decorating. We blew the yoke out of the eggs then painted them. She has been wanting to do this for awhile. She painted them all and they look really cute. They almost have a marble effect to them. We also made a few Easter cards to send to family. I used the 'cricut' die cutter for one which turned out great. It was for my mother in law. I had my daughter sign the inside - she drew a picture of a dog and then signed her name and my husband's but not mine. I am not sure why she did this but I will have to sneak my signature in there. :)

Well, I am off to bed and to read...

The computer can be a dangerous thing. There always seems to be something interesting to read. I too am trying to cut down on my email reading. If it isn't from an actually "somebody" I won't even open it. Even with a decent spam filter, stuff still sneaks in. Kudos for doing you eggs already. We are usually rushing around the night before dying them. Maybe this year we will do them early. I don't know why we put them off, my kids are at an age were they really enjoy doing it. Hmmm, now I'm motivated to cook some eggs :0)
