It's a long weekend!!!
*She said in complete self denial that this means All the Children All The Hours!!*

With heaps of chocolate and candy added to the challenge.
That should be super fun.

At least a forecast is a bit more promising and Spring Like.
Until I chase them with the broom let them outdoors,  we are occupying ourselves with one of Angel Girl's recent birthday gifts.
If you have a girl in your life:  -- and that just means - in your 100 mile radius in either direction.
You are familiar with these:

Easter Rainbow Loom:  only took me 4 tries! 
Well to give my aching fingers a break after making several of these, and also the added bonus of allowing Left Brain to use his tools  *insert manly grunt here*

we are doing this craft today:


Step 1:  hammer the nails in cross shape; Step 2: outline your cross shape with bands, Step 3: add more colour!
Easy peasy..... and easily allows you a third cup of coffee.
Unless it's already noon, in which case:  a fresh pot.


Feeling Beachie

This week’s co-host is William from The Devil Speaks!
Hilary always can use more statements!

The statements:


1.  I don't require a lot of sleep

Just one of the few lies I tell myself daily.
It goes really well with "there's no such thing as too much coffee."

2.  Sometimes I sing along loudly too if the girls are singing Let it Go.  Again.  

 I prefer to illustrate "annoying as Frack!" by example.
It's even more fun if you can get the words wrong.
Although, that may backfire into a forced viewing of the actual movie, so that you may learn the correct words.
Use with caution.

3.  It is very unusual but I hate having my hands dirty - even though I love to garden.  

I have... like a hundred pair of gardening gloves. 
Somewhere.

4.  Is it illegal to kill a Yeti (Sasquatch) if it steals your late night snack?

Yes, in British Columbia, it is.




Kills me.  Every.Time.

Have a Happy Holiday weekend everyone!
And remember to protect your treats! 
You should eat half now like I did; just to be safe.

Do you consider yourself a Word Wrangler?
A Herder of Vocable perhaps?


Or perhaps words just simply fascinate you.

Then you should absolutely Hop on over to Brenda's for some Thursday Pondering.
(see what I did there?)

Angel Girl received some Rainbow Looms for her birthday, and time has gotten away from me while watching YouTube videos on how to do the darn things.   Turns out having one of those loom machines makes it much easier.

So, I'd better hop to it!



In case you haven't caught on, the prompt today is HOP.


Sadly, going to The Hop was a bit before my time, but I can still appreciate it, even if I never was At The Hop.





Although, I have tasted some hops.

Pioneer Beer & Hop Gold Beer 01

 round here "hop" usually means we are goin' down to the creek for some catchin'

Monkey Boy is victorious!  (yes, we let it go soon after)
Or more specifically, and given the time of year - we are hopping with excitement!

Hoppy Easter!!
These little Easter Nests were delicious and the kids loved making them.

All you need right here:

chocolate chips, Cadbury Mini Eggs, cupcake liners, shredded wheat crushed
1.  Just crush up some Shredded Wheat (or Shreddies will work fine too.)
2.  Melt your chocolate either with a double boiler, or in 20 -30 second intervals at 50% power in the microwave.  (I also find a few small drops of vegetable oil will ensure the chocolate remains smooth and prevents scorching.)
3.  Mix the melted chocolate and crushed wheat to make your "nest" and put in liner.
4.  cool for a few minutes in the fridge.
5.  Lay your eggs! 

My kids enjoyed theirs, singing madly to "I Want Candy," while watching this:

"Hop" 2011

Which is fine with this mom who will no longer have to be hopping mad at the repeated refrains omgmakethemstopsingingletitgoalreadyorshootme of the Frozen soundtrack.
