Teaser Tuesday

From Altar of Eden by James Rollins:

"She still cradled the jaguar cub. If the woman was right, they were looking for a massive cat, pale as a ghost, possibly with fangs ten to twelve inches long."

There's a giant hole in my yard!

And I'm hoping it turns into a swimming pool before the temperature hits 90!

1. In 1992, I was adjusting to life as the mom of a baby girl.
2. Life with my children is full of laughter and smiles (and occasional tears).
3. Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.
4. Home is where I'd like to be.
5. The trees and flowers are telling me "ahhh, the rain last night was wonderful".
6. I love the sound of ocean waves that just keeps going on.
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to sewing time, tomorrow my plans include a baby shower and Sunday, I want to sit on my porch, sipping iced tea with fresh mint!

Teaser Tuesday (on Thursday)

I just found out about Teaser Tuesday (two days late)! Here's how it works:

  1. Grab whatever you are currently reading.
  2. Choose a random page and pick a couple of teaser sentences to post. No spoilers please!
  3. Do include the title and author of the book, so others can find it.

from The Big Short by Michael Lewis:

"Vinny, always darker, said, 'There were more morons than crooks, but the crooks were higher up.'"

What are you reading?

Look good?

I thought I'd (belatedly) share my April Fool's joke. I served "lunch" to our homeschool friends. The children were polite, but guarded when taking their first tastes. So how does it look?

It's vanilla ice cream with caramel sauce and crispy cereal treats, made with chocolate cereal and chopped dried pineapple. They loved it!

Did you do any fun pranks last week?

Does this new template make me look fat?

What do you think about this new blog template?

I love pink and wanted something new for spring.

So what do you think? Yes or no?
