High Points of My Day

Today was one of those days that stretched on for miles and miles before me. And not in a good way. I got just a tiny bit of sleep last night and knew Cory would be working until 11 pm tonight.

That being said, there were a few bright spots.

I collaborated with Ruby on this Springy masterpiece.

Seriously, isn't this impressive? She did this one all on her own.
I love how she fills the canvas with color.
Oh, if those scribbles could talk...

Calvin opted to take a different approach during craft time.
This is a picture of a snake that he drew for Daddy. He then coated the snake with globs of Elmer's glue and, while the glue was still wet, he covered it all in strips of tape.
I'm taking bets on how long his roll of tape lasts.

Oh, and speaking of Daddy, he stopped by unexpectedly for a few minutes today.
I thought he looked so dang hot in his shirt and tie that I snapped his pic.
His hotness may have been magnified further by the fact that the kids and I were still in our pj's.
Do you see how I have taught him not to fear mixing patterns?
He played it a bit safe on the color combo, but I'm digging the stripes with the paisley.


Last but not least...the salad.
OK, so this picture was actually from last night, but it's so yummy that I had another one tonight. I mixed up a batch of Sarah-by-way-of-Loey's new dressing, which was as light an refreshing as they claim.

P.S. For anyone who may have attempted to make an anonymous comment and was unable to, the problem is fixed. (Thanks, Lindsay!)
