Last year, I wrote that it was the “year of weird weather” for my whole Sandwich Generation family! Apparently, this year is trying to tie that record! We’ve gone from ice cold freezIng to Roseville, California-style warmth to snow to tornadoes to EARLY DAFFODILS! WOW! My senior mom is thrilled and hoping to get back to gardening early, while another sweet senior is concerned we’ll get a late frost that will wipe out fruit tree crops. Hmmmmm!
Inside, things are warm, busy and fun with the Words With Friends game app, old AND new LEGOs activities, checkers, and plenty of solid ABCs with junior high homework and gradeschool homeschooling programs like Time4Learning.com.
Not only that! My grandsons have been working hard in my living room creating ever new and very cool forts! Today’s fort has been dubbed the “beaver lodge.” (Yup, the Wild Kratt Brothers are still a fun part of this weird winter season.)
Check out a couple of their fort-tastic forts –
Total pillows for this grandchild:
This grandkid added a chair to help stabilize his longer fort:
I’m continuing to enjoy researching easy (and not-so-easy) options and iPhone apps for editing photos from my digital camera. Lots of fun goodies out there that I’ll be sharing on Mondays – starting with yesterday’s WordFoto (Great reds for Rednesday 🙂 ) and the new online and app tool, Pixlr, I tried out today. Gotta find some good tools for photos for Sweet Shot Tuesday, right? 🙂
Well, that’s the good AND bad weather and home news around here. So, how’s the weather in your Sandwich Generation neck of the woods? :) And…
Nice to see you. We’ve been having crazy weather too. Love those forts. Don’t you love their imagination?
Hope you have a great day!
We had a red flag fire warning this past weekend. They’re more typical in October. Different, yes…
The plants are as mixed up as we are. They do not know when to sprout and bloom. The weather all over has been so different this year.
Definitely the year of weird weather! We’re enjoying temps that are 20 degrees warmer than normal. I’m afraid to take the bricks off of the bulbs that I planted in the Fall, to keep the squirrels from eating them. I feel that they’ll start blooming way before they should!
Smart idea, Carol! Crazy weather, that’s for sure. 🙂 Our city loves it coz of savings on salt, but our bug guys are worried the bad crop bugs won’t die out which will also hurt the crops.
Isn’t that the truth, LaVoice! 🙂
Us too, Sheila – So strange in winter. And tornadoes too!
Hi Susan 🙂 I do love their imagination. It’s astounding how many different ways they can put them together with the same basic ingredients. 🙂
