This Easter's memories:

:: The boys were both excited about ties this year.

:: Ellie was NOT excited about walking on grass.

:: I did get photos of the whole family, but someone made faces in every. single. one.

:: They weren't just "what a cute little weirdo" faces. They were "I'm being tortured" faces.

:: Yes, Ezra is rocking red tennis shoes with his nice Easter clothes.

:: The boys re-hid our measly stash of 18 dyed eggs 4 times. Next year we need to color a LOT more.

:: Ellie loved hunting eggs for about 5 minutes. Then it was all about the chocolate.

I shouldn't have said anything about monogamous knitting on the podcast on Monday- I moved away from the shawl that very day and I'm working hard to finish my Comicon socks at the moment. They're both just about to the toes, and from there it's all down hill so I figured it would be best to put my efforts there and end up with a finished project by week's end... or thereabouts.

The citron shawl got to the place where each row takes a bit of time to get through, so it's a little harder for me to pick up and put down when there are little hands just waiting for the opportunity to let some stitches loose- precisely what I don't need right now.

Only a few days until my studio's recital for this year, then a week of "freedom" (which means no studio teaching, but extra schooling, and still all the baseball practices and trampoline and instrument practicing and other kid things that go on around here) then back in the studio for a few weeks to finish out the year and get everything cleaned up so that I can focus my month off between sessions on creative endeavors.

There's a garden to put in, and a creative space to build in the spare room. I've been collecting ideas for this space for a little while now, but it's still pretty nebulous in my mind. I really need to sit down and work out the pieces of this thing so that I can get moving on it as soon as that time becomes free.

I'm reading a few things right now, but mostly The Fiery Cross by Diana Gabaldon at night. Mostly because it's on the kindle (which I can read on in the dark), but also because I'm needing to tuck in at night and not have to think after thinking hard all day about too many things.
