It is only 3:00pm right now but I am starting to turn clocks ahead as I have 31 of them in the house. Yes, that's right, 31. I have collected them over the years too, most of them coke ones and they are all up and running. By 8:00pm they will all be an hour ahead except for the one over the TV and the one that always gets forgotten somewhere. There are also five in the back yard garden and patio I will get to tomorrow. I like clocks:) I have never worn a watch in my life. But I do like to be able to look around wherever I am doing stuff during the day and keep track of time.
Today was beautiful. Sunny, in the 60's and a little bit breezy. Just enough breeze to get all the windchimes going and sounding so pretty and the smell of jasmine drifting all over the yards. All signs of Spring coming.
Yesterday was a great day with the kids. We made "Jello Jigglers" (I love this name that Lisa calls them). Isaac mixed it all together in the bowl and got excited when he added the "cement", the name he has for the Knox gelatin. Poured it in a huge roasting pan and let it set up in the fridge. We went outside and played for a few hours while it set up. It is so much fun to watch them use their imaginations outside and be so happy. And I don't have to do anything but watch and hold conversations with them. Isaac was blown away cutting up the jello into worms, shapes, and dicing tiny pieces, eating it as he went along. Such harmless fun. His birthday is in May and I told his mom that whatever theme he decided on, I would make a stained glass jello centerpiece to go along with it. What 4 year old wouldn't enjoy that? I can make all the jello colors ahead of time and have it ready to assemble in no time. And the best part of it all, I won't cut myself while I am doing it.:)
Well, I am rambling here so I think I will get back to the laundry and setting clocks ahead now. I hope you all are having a wonderful weekend and find some treasures along the way. They are out there, you just need to look for them.
Love and Hugs, Laurie
