Random Tuesday Thoughts

randomtuesday

Wow, has it really been 2 months since I last participated in Random Tuesday Thoughts? Well, according to my archive it is! Goodness, where do I start?

It's rainy and cool here today. Not a good day to get any outdoor gardening done but maybe a good opportunity to continue some Spring cleaning inside the house. Last weekend we rearranged (and cleaned!) the whole upstairs to find a home for a sofa that some friends were getting rid of during their recent move. (The sofa happens to be an exact match to our living room furniture and with kids and dogs in the house I thought a couple of extra cushions would come in handy.) We managed to get the giant sofa up the stairs and around the turn of death and finally situated it up in the sitting room after relocating some other furniture including moving most of the houseplants into Mae's room in front of her south facing window. Hopefully she will remind me to water them...

Binny brought home a bunch of Easter projects from school (public school) yesterday including this Easter egg craft. She beamed as she told me about the Ts in the middle. Ts huh? I asked her why Ts and she said that the teacher's helper laid down the glue in the shape of a T and she glittered it. Ts huh? For Easter??? It's not the crosses that bother me, it's the lack of respect for any religion other than Christianity, or no religion at all (from our experiences with this school district, at least) and the thought that all kids must know that Easter equals Jesus died on a cross for us.

Baseball officially started yesterday! I listened to the Brewer's lose their first regular season game of the year. Go brewers!

I talked with my grandparents last night. Grandpa was in the hospital again last week but is home now and regaining his strength once again after a nasty bout of bronchitis. They called to tell me they are sending me a 'VCR' (I swear that's what they call a VHS tape. Don't even try to convince them otherwise.) from their Anniversary party last month. There is even footage of me waltzing with a sweaty old man they all call Shorty. Now I need to dig out that old VCR that we no longer use to watch the tape...

I started a new blog! I know crazy right since I barely have time for this one. The new blog is all photos and very few (if any) words. I figured that if I am going to seriously pursue photography in an effort to make a little money, I should really have a website with sample photos that has nothing to do with this little rantbox. Check out the new blog here. I still have some tweaking to do, but it's up and running!

That's it for me today. Be sure to stop by Keely's blog for the whole Random Tuesday line up.

I'm gonna guess there will be a few complaints about that project. I'd be a bit peeved.

Have a great Tuesday!

Cool about the new blog, I have many blogs and find that really none of them overlap because they cover different areas.

I'll check yours out!

Wow... I thought religion was supposed to be kept out of public school. Do they think that if you call a cross a "T" it makes it ok? How silly.

I can totally relate to maneuvering around a turn of death. Sometimes it seems easier to have the furniture built upstairs.

I don't think the teachers called them Ts but I don't think they said anything at all about them while helping the kids decorate their eggs. Binny called them Ts because frankly they look like Ts and wouldn't necessarily associate that shape with the cross.

Either way I thought it was totally unnecessary.

I do believe I heart you.

Wow. I can't believe there was an "Easter" project of any kind. Our schools are really, really careful about interjecting religion into anything - until High school and then you are pretty much persuecuted for practicing any religion at all.

I hope your grandpa gets better soon!
Happy Random!

Interesting little Easter project. Yeah...I'd be ticked, too...A LOT. Hey, I just found a VCR during the packing process. Wanna borrow it? ;) I checked out your new blog. It rocks. Adding it to my reader! :)

Ts are for Easter? HA! Like the new blog.
