Focused randomness

Good Morning and Happy Sunday! Also Happy Mother's Day to those that celebrate. Looks like spring has finally arrived in my little corner of the Fort. Have to admit that I've been enjoying the clear days and the cool nights. Schoolwork is winding down for the girls. With the current state of things this is going to be the last true week for Serra and Amanda has this week and AP Exams next week. Thankfully one Fossil Ridge tradition, all be it in a modified format will get to happen. What did we do this past week? It was full of writing. Serra's English class wrote stories to share with each other this week and we had lots of discussion...

A loom lesson and a bit of play

Good Morning and Happy Sunday! Quiet here as I'm the only one that tends to get up with the birds that live in the tree out front. They normally start talking about 5 am but the other morning they were the ones scolding me for having the light on that early! Yesterday's rain was wonderful and gifted us with a rainbow that arced over my building.  I don't know why but rainbows make me smile. Girls are still keeping up on schoolwork. I think in some ways Serra is enjoying being home, she does miss her friends but is not really big on people in general so Minecraft, music and creativity are keeping her company. Amanda's glasses finally arrived Friday...

Quarantine entertainment and studio progress

Good Morning and Happy Sunday! Quiet morning as usual here considering the girls love getting to sleep in. This week has been beautiful from a weather point of view, cool nights, afternoon rainstorms and happy sunshine. Possibly my favorite weather. Hopefully it won't start to get too hot too soon! What trouble did we cause this last week? Along with keeping up with schoolwork and demolishing the kitchen on a regular basis Quantum Leap and Dark Matter have kept us entertained. I've also stuck my nose back in an old set of beloved books by Melanie Rawn that I first read back in high school.  Time in the studio for me has gotten projects started with Max and Rapunzel along...

A loom fashion show and new items

Good Morning and Happy Sunday! It might finally be spring for real here in Colorado. This last week hopefully gave us our last blast of winter with a good eight inches of snow in my little corner of the Fort. Now it's mostly melted and bright green grass is showing through. Here's hoping the lilacs in the area didn't mind the cold snap as they should be blooming soon. What did we do this last week? I could be boring and say more of the same with staying home but just about everyone is doing that right now. Amanda completed her Seal of Biliteracy testing and Serra finished all of her work by Wednesday so she had a lot of...

Nothing like spring in Colorado

Good Morning and Happy Sunday, Easter, Ostara and/or Spring! Whichever you happen to be celebrating if any of them today. Colorado is wearing her typical Spring finery for this time of year, new tree buds with a hint of snow. Yes it's April and it's snowing in my little corner of the Fort. I don't think we are supposed to get that much but I've already started a pot of soup for dinner tonight.  How are we in our Quarantineland? This week was better than last. Amanda and I took advantage of some sales happening to get her ready for this fall and Serra scored with getting a big box to play in. We truly believe she was a cat...
