ten on ten {March 2013}

I’m participating in ten on ten again! 

Our day on the tenth of March…

We awoke to this:

March 10, 2013 009   Pretty, heh? 

So to combat the rain, I thought I’d wear a little sunshine.

 March 10, 2013 012

It most definitely brightened my day! 

Sunday morning we headed out to worship with our church family.  Unfortunately, we were late for Sunday school.  The time change (plus the rain) made us one draggy family on Sunday morning. We did get there in time for worship. 

After worship and a short stop at the store, we headed home for lunch.

We fed our human babies and I fed our little plant babies.  Can’t wait to get these in the ground!

After a quick lunch, we all settled down for a cozy nap.  Rainy days do that to us!  Plus we do try to make Sunday afternoons slow days so that our family can rest.

  But before a nap, I squeezed in a little music practice for children’s choir and the adult Easter musical (and perused the planting dates – I rarely do one thing at a time…I know that’s kind of bad).

And then I snuggled into bed and read a chapter of Sparkly Green Earrings by Melanie Shankle (sorry for the blur…the room was low lit for my nap.)

Because of the time change, I slept like a rock!  Which means I overslept so I jumped out of bed, swallowed down a pb & honey sandwich, and quickly dressed in order to head back to church so I could teach children’s choir.

And now the once dreary day had turned into a beautiful one!

After an hour with the older children’s choir of singing and preparing for our performance, I packed up and headed home before the rest of the family.  The plan was to begin working on our school plans for the upcoming week before the family came home.

But the van had other plans.

The van gave a little “ding” and I didn’t think anything of it at first because we have a quirky van.  However, after it began to incessantly “ding”, I knew we had a problem. Upon looking at the small gauge to the far right, I discovered that the needle was on the H.  I pulled the van into the nearest parking lot, which happened to be McDonald’s, and called Dave who was still at church.

We didn’t want to pull the kids out of their classes early so I settled down in the McDonald’s parking lot to wait until they could rescue me.

At least it was a beautiful day now…

and McDonald’s had free WiFi so I could catch up on my blog reading.  *smile*

After a little car swap, a few of the kids and I headed home while my hubs worked on the van.  (It needed more antifreeze because apparently, it now has a leak…yippee) 

We ate a late dinner, put the littles to bed, and checked our Monopoly game tickets from Albertson’s grocery store to see if we won anything yet(because let’s face it…after the way the day had turned out, this momma was t.i.r.e.d. and school planning was off the radar).  Then we bid the teenagers good night too.

At that moment I realized that I could put it off no more…

it was time to tackle the dirty dishes. 

The hubs had to do a little work so I brewed a couple cups of decaf chai to entice us to finish up our tasks so we could head to bed.

It worked.

Clean dishes except for a lone, dirty, empty, Chai cup.

And as tired as I was, obviously I was not too tired to finish writing a blog post before heading off to bed.
