So, long ago...I declared blinds as the worst invention ever. Not really, but basically I officially decided that they SUCK. Remember when I went from this:
PURE HEAVEN! (Tutorial here)
Well, I have recently decided that after living in our house for almost 3 years, it's time to do some spring cleaning :) On the list: BLINDS. Specifically, clean them.
I was pretty appalled at what I saw........FILTH!
Oh boy. Well, I cleaned them, and now they are all white and slobber free! Please note, the slobber comes from Dante, not me...OR Clay.
After cleaning them...I declared again, BLINDS SUCK. I am so ready to tear them all down and put up curtains instead. Clay likes blinds for whatever reason...but like a lot of things in life, I end up showing him the light and he converts :)
In other news....like I mentioned before, I've been trying to play more guitar.
It's been great. Really. My fingers are getting sore and pretty soon they'll get that familiar feeling of calloused ends. Throughout most of high school I had calloused fingers, but they quickly became soft again once I stopped playing :)
Clay's been playing lots of Diablo3. He plays online with our bro-in-law Mike and they talk and stuff. It's funny.
Dante has been really cute and stuff. Just playin with his toys...begging for loves and walks. We have decided that he knows how handsome he is, and tries to use it to his advantage.
Yesterday I made Chef Brad's rice waffles.
They are 100% rice flour with actual COOKED rice in the batter. I don't notice it much because I put berries and stuff ontop of my waffles. But Clay was like, "I feel like I keep eating grains" haha. Well, he still ate all of his because of my special buttermilk syrup. He will basically eat any breakfast food if I make that. It tastes like caramel. And is amazing. Clay doesn't particularly love breakfast food...so if I make it, I try to make the buttermilk syrup so that he doesn't feel cheated.
Yesterday I put a braid in my hair. It feels summery and nice.
But don't let that fool you into thinking we are full on summer here....ugh. Good ol' Idaho. Here is the weather forecast...
You see how the weather changes so? Blah.
I've been watching Gilmore Girls while sewing on my quilt. It's the best. I seriously never get sick of that show. I just watched the episode where Max and Lorelei are walking in the snow and kiss and Luke sees it and oh! It's so heartbreaking.
Anywho, hope you have a good weekend. I know I will! Here are my generalized plans: Wipe down baseboards, do a load of dishes, sew a bit, play guitar a bit, watch some Dawson's Creek (its on netflix instant play now...of course I've been watching tons of it and of course it's a completely inappropriate teen show...but I just can't seem to resist these things), maybe read, maybe walk Dante.
