The Awesome list

It’s Friday!  Time for an update on what is currently awesome.

1.  Fresh flowers – some I picked from the yard, some are a gift from neighbors:

2. Easter eggs, both the dyeing and hunting of:

Happy after a successful hunt

3. Easter candy – we now have an obscene amount of sugary treats in the house, post-Easter.  If I could figure out a way to make a nutritive meal with jelly beans, I wouldn’t have to go grocery shopping for a month.  But the best Easter candy of all is Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs.  To wit – they were my dinner last night…

It's been five days since Eater, so it's really a testament to my self-restriant that there are any of these left.

4. Silly games.  Last Saturday, we held a little ‘Minute To Win It’ style competition with friends.  There’s something freeing about just playing and humiliating yourself a little bit.

        

5. Spray canola oil.  Who knew that it could keep squirrels out of our birdfeeder?  Jon sprayed the post with a liberal amount of the stuff, and the birdseed buffet has been closed for those rodents.  Now the birds are actually fed from our birdfeeder – what a concept!

6. Kids who catch on to things quickly.  Evan just showed me that he can log onto the family computer, open the browser and find http://www.pbskids.com all by himself.  Once again, benign neglect rules here at Chez Lupton.

7. Cheap nifty stuff from Ikea.  Ikea is awesome all the time, but these are the specifics I picked up this week.  They now sell plastic baggies (Istad) with the cutest designs on them.  They also sell wooden hangers (Bumerang – har, har) for less than a dollar a piece.  Every time I go to Ikea, I pick up several packs of the Bumerangs, and I’ll keep doing so until my closet is 100% Bumerang!

   

Hope your week is filled with awesome!  It’s everywhere, if you look…
