I have given up Facebook and Twitter for Lent. I wasn’t going to talk about it here, but all day I have been thinking of status messages and tweets that I’ve been wanting to post. One of my reasons for taking a break from that social media is to focus more on blogging, so I thought I’d do my microblogging over here instead. :-) Anyways, a few things on my mind this morning…
…It’s a dreary, wet, and rainy day here in Atlanta today. But, it’s not cold so that’s a good thing! I was standing in our bathroom looking at the flooded backyard, and I noticed some green
plants weeds peeking through the dead leaves. I guess I need to get out the mower pretty soon!
…A friend and I went to a consignment sale this morning. Tis the season! I ended up with 5 cute outfits for Savannah for this summer. I have very little for her in the way of summer wear (most of the summer clothes I have are either 12 months, which she still fits into some, and 24 months/2T, which are waaay too big). I have been enjoying buying some clothes for her, especially dresses! I have hopes that she’ll be walking by the summer, because toddler dresses aren’t really cut or made for scootching babies.
…Savannah has learned to climb up the steps, on her hands and knees. Yay for progress!! But yikes, I need a baby gate for the bottom of the steps now! We went and got a cheap stationary one from Walmart, but it doesn’t allow for baseboards (which is stupid :-p). Besides, I like having a little gate anyways, and we are probably going to be stuck with baby gates on the steps for the next 5+ years, so might as well get something we like. I picked one up at the consignment sale this morning and hopefully it works out well.
…I found this site the other day: the red dress club. I’m intrigued and hope to participate in the assignments. I’m hoping that it will add some interesting posts to my blog. I miss writing, and desire to pick it up again, but haven’t known where to start.
…I have a horrible headache right now. So, I am going to publish this and hope you all have a wonderful rest of your day.
