Picking up where we are now...

I know, it's almost 90 degrees outside and I still have up snow pics. I'm terrible at this blog thing. I have no other excuse other than I'm busy and I'm lazy. That's a bad combination and leaves little time for entertaining the masses with rivoting stories about meatballs, kids and melted crayon art projects.

There, no more snow pics!

Lately we've been swamped with school stuff, football stuff, scout stuff, baseball stuff, choir stuff, photography stuff, hanging out on the beach stuff and a few other things. Like I said, I've been busy. Today, I'm busy with trying to kill a woodpecker stuff. 

There's this stupid woodpecker that has taken up residency in our favorite Willow tree and he is really making a mess of it. I'll post some pics later...you will not believe how bad it is! Anyway, I tried to be nice. I tried reasoning with him, even offered him a nice new spot in the neighbors tree. I tried the no harm approach. I hung one of those silly plastic owls with demonic eyes from one of the branches and that worked for all of 3 hours and 27 minutes. I tried screaming at him and throwing things. To date, I have hit him with a garden spade, numerous pool toys, several sticks and a house shoe. He just laughs at me and continues to wreck havoc on my tree. Today, he meets the bb gun and if that doesn't work...I'll spare you the gory details!

Anyway, I do have lots of fun beach pics to share, and I've even managed to whip up a few new recipes and crafts. I'll be back later, right now I've got a woodpecker to deal with.
