The weather here so far in March has been lovely. LMW and I played outside just about all day yesterday. He was one tired little man, and Nanna was beat. I don't think I've been that tired in a long long time. But it was worth it.

He loves to have a mustache and beard drawn on his face. He grabbed an ink pen yesterday and started drawing... YIKES!! So, Nanna found an old eyebrow pencil and gave him a better set.
We've been feeding birds in the back yard and are having issues with those pesky blackbirds. I keep having to run outside and clap my hands to get them gone. And they keep returning. I guess we'll have to leave the feeders empty for a while to discourage them and get them to move along on their merry way.

I have a bone to pick with the clothing designers this spring. What about old and fat don't you people who designed Skinny Jeans understand????!!!

Ok, now this model looks very nice. But I can guarantee you that she is in her twenties and weighs less than 120 lbs.  I spent 2+ hours in Penney's  on Thursday unsuccessfully looking for slacks or jeans that were not skinny, and that would fit my lumpy body well enough to actually purchase. No luck. It's very depressing. I'm short and weigh...well quite a bit more than 120 lbs I can tell you that. Finding clothes that fit is almost impossible for me. The husband asked me yesterday what I was going to do since I can't seem to find anything that fits. I guess I'll have to try to start making my own clothes. I've never been successful at it, but desperate times call for desperate measures.... :/

I must get back to my "rat killin'" as my grandmother would say. Meaning I need to get back to my housework. I just thought I'd take a break and visit with you all a minute or two. 

I hope you all have a great weekend!!

Oh my gosh, too funny - this reminds me of when my sons were little they loved to use magic markers (not washable in those days)to draw on their faces! I agree with you on the 'skinny' trend - even in the extra large sections of shops - they run skinny - who designs these things??

Brenda, You may want to try Christopher and Banks or CJ Banks. Their clothes are designed for those of us who are not 20 something. They have didn't styles of jeans that do fit. The CJ Banks is Women sizes. They have great online sites also..Also great sales if you watch.

Seriously! When I get 'elected' I'm pushing for uniform sizing, too!

Too funny! "Rat killin'" I haven't heard that in forever!!!
