when life hands you lemons...

and an orange or two...

take pictures of them.

Luckily the kids stayed healthy during hubby and my little escape last week. I hadn't felt that bad in a really long time. Sore throat the first day. Then a runny nose... I used an entire roll of tissue during one of the days. It was ridiculous. And I'm not even mentioning the burning eyes, headache, body aches, and coughing.

That was this time last week.

This is now.

I have been making every thing I can with oranges and lemons. I tried an Orange Ginger loaf in the bread machine. It was really tasty, the problem was that it didn't rise properly and was a short stout little loaf and was gone as soon as my little family left the table.

I volunteered in my son's class. But this time it was for the classroom store. The students had been earning 'pirate booty' for the past month or two.

I made oatmeal chocolate chip cookies with orange extract. (I was out of vanilla and thought I would keep the trend going) they aren't bad. I may have used just a tad too much orange extract though.

Almost caught up on laundry. Translation: two loads, clean, just not folded and put away, but I vacuumed.

I made a spring skirt for Myla. I'm thinking of putting one of these, on her shirt when she wears it. (a purple and white one)

Went to the library twice since last week.

My son had a friend over after school yesterday. It was early release. He rode with us in our car and everything. They had such a good time. Its so refreshing when that happens.
