Spring Itch...

Anybody else have it?? No, not that personal gotta-put-cream-on-it itch. I'm talking wanna-drive-with-the-windows-down kinda spring fever!!! It was such a beautiful day. A perfect 74. The sky was TARHEEL blue and full of birds singing. The breeze was cool to my face and the sun was warm on my back, sleepy warm. I could have stayed outside all day long!! If anyone knows where there is weather like this all year long please clue me in, I'm hoppin' on a jet plane.

Foreign Exchange Student

After tons of the typically Southern parade of Easter food this afternoon, the family was wanting something other than ham, potato salad, and turnip greens. So we loaded up and headed to Red Bowl, mmm!!! Xan just HAD TO HAVE the kid-friendly chopsticks made-for-dummies. If you have never used chopsticks, have your ethnic waiter/ress hand assemble a pair of chopsticks with precision-like placements of rubberbands. This allows even the most clumsiest of Americans to try their hand at the ancient art of chop-suey via chopsticks....Xan turned out to be a pro, just look!! And I even have leftovers for tomorrow, yippee!! No frozen chosen Lean Cuisine for me.

Finally...I'm a blogger, not a stalker!!

Well, I am finally going to get with the program and be one with the mass of thousands that post daily tidings to people all over the great land of ours. I am always checking blogs of friends. In fact, my list of favorites is a compilation of blogs from all over. A friend said I can even program this thing to tell me when my favorite bloggers post an update....hmmm?? Maybe I will figure that out down the road. Heck, I just got good at Myspace, now the World!
