Friday Favorites: March 29

Happy Good Friday! It’s a good Friday here for many reasons, including posting my Friday Favorites on Friday two weeks in a row.

  • A family dinner filled with yummy food, delicious chocolate cake and good company!Favorite kite
  • A fun coin toss fundraiser at our last Cub Scout Pack Meeting.
  • Yogurt with a friend.
  • After a detour with a short story, I started working on my book again. As i read over parts of previous chapters, looking for details to support what I was writing, I kept thinking how much I like the story. I’m totally excited to work on it again!
  • On that note, ANWA had a WOW (week of writing). I’ve added 323 words so far this week.
  • My Paper Bag Kite article over at Arizona Mama.
  • I ‘hard-boiled’ eggs in the oven. It simplified the process. The kiddos were commenting they like the other way better, but I’m not sure why. I’ll let you know next week if they taste just as good.
  • Dying Easter Eggs is always fun. I just wish I could start earlier in the evening, but I wish that every year.
  • Today I finished reading Airman by Eoin Colfer and we had our family book club for the book. I didn’t cut it close, I had hours to spare!

How has your week been? Are you as excited about Easter as we are? As excited as I am about Easter, I’m going to sneak in another hundred words or so on my book while everyone else is occupied!

Paper Bag Kite

We took the paper bag kites for a test fly over the weekend.  We had to do some repairs right off the start – it’s like they were made of paper or something!  After some patching and the addition of a tail, we got them in the air as high as the string we had, which wasn’t saying much.  But since we were just in the neighborhood, I didn’t want to lose them in someone’s backyard.  One of the neighbors gave the kiddos a cool kite they never use.  That one flew much better!
