The weather here this weekend was cold, damp and dreary. Spring is trying to get here, and winter's grip is slowly loosening — just a few more weeks and we'll be in the clear. It was no kind of weekend for outdoor activities, so I continued on my scrapbooking streak and completed some more pages like the one above of my sister and I as young siblings, and again, I am so thankful for the quality of these photos my mother took so long ago (Kodachrome slide film). I am keeping all of my pages these days simple — in the vein of Ali Edwards and Cathy Zielske and embracing the Simple Scrapbooks philosophy.
I am also busy getting estimates to get some LONG overdue work done on the inside of the house, and also getting estimates on cleaning up on the outside (getting rid of all of the leaves that have collected in the flower beds and mulching. I bag the leaves on the lawn in the fall to keep them from smothering the grass during the winter). The crocuses are blooming and the daffodils and forsythias are struggling to bloom, just another warm day or two and we'll be there.
I also watched a lot of movies this weekend, most notably, this year's Oscar winner for Best Picture, Slumdog Millionaire, which was really good, and some classics on Turner Classic Movies, Double Indemnity, Mildred Pierce, and The Postman Always Rings Twice.
