Highs and Lows

Hello!  Happy Monday to you!  I had some interesting moments last week and thought I’d share some of the high and lows.  Get ready to be jealous.

The weather.  Cold with a bit of snow thrown in.  Thus, the pictures for today’s post..I’m wishing for a vacation.
More time to get ready for shorts.
Going to a Twins game at the new stadium and riding the light rail for the first time.
Going out for pizza before the game, ordering artichokes and getting ANCHOVIES instead.
 Noticing this before I took a bite.
My sister wasn’t so lucky.
Eating lots of yummy kettle corn at the Twins game.
You can tell that I’ve been eating lots of yummy kettle corn and then some.
Finally getting a giant stack of about 400 pieces of paper all filed in their proper place…and no, I don’t mean the garbage can.
Discovering that while I had been filing the aforementioned papers, someone had squirted a tube of toothpaste all over the bathtub.
Seeing that she had also covered her legs with yellow chalk.
And wiped it all over the towels.
Having my first link party.
Some lovely people attended.  Feel free to take a peek.
Hope your week is off to a great start.
♥ Tricia

    I hope you have an amazingly high week this week. Of course remember that your lows make the highs seem so much higher.

    Toothpaste in the tub…yuk! 🙂

    Hey Trcia,

    I thought your party was brilliant. Did you enjoy it? There were so many great posts linked up. I really enjoyed visiting some of them.

    Hi there Tricia,

    I thought your Link Partay' was quite sucessful!! When I get some more time, I'd like to visit all the rest of the links I haven't looked at. I have been writing my last speech for my speech class – a persuasive speech on supporting free range chickens. I don't link my photos from Flickr. I just load 'em there too for community sharing.. I have learning SO much about perspective from looking at Flickr photos.. my obsession!

    Have a wonderful Easter!
