Silver Liningness Sunday

On a Monday!

Okay, I was wholly absent yesterday. Did anyone miss me?

Oh well, I can't let a week go unnoticed and unthanked, so the silver liningness is a day late. Actually, we spent a day in the Big City yesterday (cue "Dynasty" theme music...). Got out to get a little culture and whatnot to commemorate Chaco's birthday from earlier in the week.

Last week will also be remembered as a special one as it was simply lovely weather-wise. I took my poor neglected Bella (the mountain bike) out of her holding cell on several occassions so as to feel the wind in our hair. AND, in addition, not a minivan incident to speak of! Oh, pinch me, I MUST be dreaming.

It was also quite a week of busyness and productivity. I can't even remember what all I got done, but my to-do list has many scratch outs on it. One thing was a good closet cleaning for each of us, and the VVA is coming today for a donation pickup. Six bags o' stuff for them. YAY!

Oh, and speaking of the warm weather... such circumstances meant that the new tattoo was occassionally on display and got several positive comments. A showing at a PTO meeting, no less, prompted the principal to remark on what a rocking PTO our school has compared to others she's dealt with. Not only do we discuss ways to sneak marguerita machines to the staff appreciation luncheons, but now we have a treasurer with a tattoo.



  1. So glad you had such a nice week. I LOVE decluttering. I managed to get some done last week too.

    I love your photo with the city skyline in the back. Very nice. :-)

  2. Hey I know that park!!

    also I did miss the silver lining post.

    I am glad it mad it and since it is a holiday weekend for some, I wont even consider it late!

  3. LOL, you are obsessed w. your ink - you sneak it into your blog at every turn! ;)

  4. Decluttering helps me mentally as well. Not that I love the process but the end result is worth it. :)

  5. Out on the bike this week? JEALOUS!

  6. re: Margarita machine...

    Where there's a will, there's a way. Just sayin'.

  7. You may have been absent, but looks like you took full advantage of the day. I bet Bella was happy to be turned loose for a day.

    And you've got one cool PTO group.

  8. Your tattoo is going to open up a whole new world for you...sort of. :) You'll have to share on he blog - like you've done with this post.

  9. Oh...adorable and happy looking family you've got there. :)
