It was another weekend for the record books, I say!

It’s funny to me that in New England we lament the late start of spring, even though as far as I know, it’s never been consistently warm in March and April! Never! Granted, I’ve only been here eight years so feel free to argue with me and I’ll probably like it, but March has never come in like a lion and out like a lamb. Maybe April does? I remember 70 and 80 degree days in March and April, but they were never here to stay. That said, I need to stop complaining and go sit under a Seasonal Affective Disorder lamp or something. We have one for the chickens. Did you know we’re getting baby chicks this week?

Juniper will be thrilled.

And did you know that this upcoming week is the “best week of our lives”? We made a list:

1 – Monday marks my TEN YEAR anniversary of leaving my home state of New Jersey.
2 – Tuesday is our annual Passover Seder at Grandma and Grandpa’s house.
3 – Thursday is Cassidy’s birthday, and Scarlet’s teacher’s birthday!
4 – Our baby chickens are being born on Monday and will arrive to us by Wednesday or Thursday.
5 – This is the first week of our favorite Village Green Ice Cream being open! (we went on Saturday!)

6 – Des has Good Friday off of school and Scarlet has a half day.
7 – She made baby chick crafts to pass out to her classmates!
8 – Scarlet is getting an amazing TeePee Tent this week. I’ll write about it in-depth!
9 – New Doctor Who on Saturday night!
10 – EASTER!!

Easter Tic Tac Toe

As a special note, I don’t make light of Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). I think many of us struggle with it to some degree, and I’m someone who would be happiest if it was sunny 365 days a year, and we got our rain during romantic overnight hours.

I get what I call “Cloud Rage”. Where we live, we can have a lot of gloomy, cloudy, cold, rainy days in a row. That was last week. We all jump upon the first day in the weather forecast that predicts any sun at all. Often, the weather forecast will change during that day and keep pushing back the predicted sunshine. Even though today (Sunday) dawned bright and sunny, Saturday was one of those days that was supposed to be sunny and was rather overcast, windy, and cold. We still had fun:

The baby chickens in Des’ classroom went to a permanent owner (who happens to sell LulaRoe and I went to her house yesterday), but we completed the unit on hatching chickens with a “field trip” visit to a farm Saturday morning.

It was fun, but cold and windy. The sun came out a bit later, and then ALL DAY today! I took a solo morning road trip to South Deerfield to get the kids’ Easter baskets done, because I remember hitting Target on Easter Eve the last two years and finding the shelves completely picked through. That will not be happening this year! They are not getting anything from any big stores, in fact. This afternoon we raked the yard until I got a blister, and then it was a mix of relaxation and work.

Let Spring come, I say. And may you all have a beautiful start to the week.

  1. Loved your weekend update. This week is our spring break, but still also a work week for me. Yet I am getting a big treat Saturday as I am going to see Bob Jovi with some friends who had an extra ticket. So totally looking forward to that now ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. You are getting baby chicks next week? Now thatโ€™s exciting and I also hear it’s a lot of work. I canโ€™t wait for all the fun photos I know you are going to post. Scarlet made baby chick crafts to pass out at school? I would love to see those ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Sounds it’s going to be a rather fun week. Birthday and baby chicks, wow! BTW I keep hearing of the Village Green ice-cream and would love to give them a try one day. As for your tic tac toe, Madison loves the game so may do this with her and “let her win”. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Cute little idea! I have to agree on the sunshine thing. I get desperate for the sun. My family jokes that I am not a mammal, but a reptile, needing to climb out on a rock and sock in the heat & light of the sun!

    • I’m with you! This time of year is tough for me, because the light is fading. Even though it’s still summer in its glory! Wrong side of the year for me.
