A Simple Spring Break
Is it really Friday night already? This week sure did fly by! I had a simple but wonderful spring break. I had lots of down time to rest and do nothing but I also had a little fun and did some more cleaning out and reorganizing too. I have just been in the mood to clean, sort, purge, and reorganize this year. I have always been organized, but this year I have been getting rid of a lot more stuff than I normally do. I cleaned out my bathroom closet and vanity today and got rid of a bunch of junk! It amazes me that I still had bottles of nail polish that haven't been opened in over 10 years! What was I thinking? LOL! Anywho, let me share a few pictures from my week.
On Tuesday, I had to run to the grocery store to pick up a few things since I hadn't left the house in 3 days! While I was out and about, I ran into one of my favorite thrift stores. You know I have been trying to stay out of thrift stores most of the time, but I still enjoy going every now and then and looking for things that I actually need or will use. This trip was a good one. I didn't find much, but I did pick up a few kitchen utensils for a steal! The pastry wheel, melon baller, and knives were around $0.50 each and the silver spoons were $0.29 each. They went in my craft room stash. The adorable little pinwheel gift tags were new in the package for $0.29. The glass jar was $0.99. I was so excited to find this jar. Let me show you why.
It's a mini version of a jar (actually two) that I have had for about 25 years. One of them holds marbles and this one holds our loose change. I put the small one beside it and separated the silver coins from the pennies. When they get full, we will cash them in. I just love this cute little jar!
I also picked up a like new pair of pants for work for $3.99. When I was paying the cashier told me clothes were buy one get one free that day, so I went back and picked up the top I had debated on getting .
It's really pretty and will also be good for work.
On my way home I had to run by Mama's house and drop off a can of peas I had picked up for her. She showed me this little cutie. Do you know what it is? If you guessed pineapple, you are correct. It is a baby...their first one!
I also looked at her lilies. They are sprouting out and will be gorgeous soon! Look at the size of those bulbs!
On Wednesday, I picked up a couple work friends and we met another work friend in Cedar Key. We spent a couple hours on the little beach and watched the pelicans, seagulls, a crab and dolphins. I enjoyed watching my co-workers' kids playing on the beach too. It was overcast but they had a blast anyway. It was a nice, relaxing day.
We saw a seagull with just one foot. Poor thing...but he didn't seem phased by it!
After we left the beach, we had lunch. One of my co-workers and I shared some crab stuffed mushrooms. Yum!
I ordered shrimp tacos and sweet potato fries. Talk about delicious!
We walked a bit and checked out a couple shops and then rode around town before heading home. I snapped a quick picture of their school. I love the stained glass shark window above the doors. Cedar Key is a lovely little town and one I love to visit from time to time.
Thursday I stayed home during the day and then went to watch my nephew's lacrosse game that evening. Friday I stayed home during the day again and hung out with the pupsters! I love how they both go to the top step and scope things out before going down. So funny! They do this almost every time they go out. They are quite fond of each other now and Rooster is like Sadie's little shadow.
Friday evening, the hubby and I went to buy groceries and pick up a few things we needed.
When we got home, I put everything away and sat down to write this post. Nothing overly exciting about my week but it was just what I needed. Tomorrow I have a baby shower and then I'm going to my classroom to do a few things to prepare for next week. It promises to be a busy one with parent conferences, lunch duty, and an Easter party on Friday! The more I can get done ahead of time, the smoother the week will go. I hope you all had a delightful week and may your weekend be just what you want it to be.
Until next time.....
