My little boys and I had a wonderful Spring Break! They spent almost the entire time in the wetlands behind our house building a fort, inspired of course by "The Dangerous Book for Boys". They even put a floor in it made of leftover stone pavers from a neighbor's patio project, tied sticks together to build walls and a roof and then they.... THATCHED THE ROOF with bundled grass! How cool is that?!! They also built a matching bridge out of scrap wood and stones over the small creek. And this tale would be soooo much better with pictures, but I didn't take any while they were constructing and a nasty storm moved in this week and blew away or submerged much of it. They are troopers though and want to rebuild when it gets sunny again! The three of us also played gourmet chef and cooked these Orange Berry Muffins from Eat Me, Delicious! Yummy!! She has these Earl Grey White Chocolate Muffins I'm dying to try next.
I always get migraines here in the Spring from the rapidly cycling pressure systems. But for the past six days, I have had a particularly bad one. Hubby bought me my favorite drink to consume when I am ill, and something where I could just look at pretty pictures and didn't need to strain my eyes to read at all. How sweet is that?!! I have the best husband!!
I love Kombucha when I am feeling poorly, but it is definitely an acquired taste! This is my new favorite flavor - "Guava Goddess". And it's pink! The new Somerset Life is just gorgeous! There are so many people featured in there that I know and congrats to you all!
I'll leave you with this beautiful mural from Neuschwanstein Castle of a woman reading the tale of Tristan and Isolde.
