"If the world were merely seductive, that would be easy. If it were merely challenging, that would be no problem. But I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day." — E.B. White

Made ya look

 These views out my car window made me look yesterday...




 And this outside my own back door...
 APRIL FOOLS!
  It's not quite that warm here just yet... That shot was last summer.

Here's what I saw this morning.
I drew mustaches on my kids while they slept last night. 
Sarah was a light sleeper so I quit with less!

When Sarah woke I told her she must not have closed the coop right cause I saw a dead chicken in the yard... Too mean? She laughed!
I also put mustard in their toothpaste, dyed the juice purple and ice balls in The Farmer's boots.
I turned the tv to heavy metal music channel - full volume of course!
I thought it was fitting that it was Ted Nugents "She's a Dangerous Girl!"  bahaha
I also tried putting dish soap in the toilets to make bubbles but that didn't seem to work. 
  Darn store brands!
Oh yeah, and I changed the two main clocks ahead an hour.
My family thinks I'm the fool.
Oh well, I had fun!
And I'm not telling what I've saved for later...!!!

You have some serious spirit! The photos are sensational...spring has come and gone again here in western New York. The flowers were covered with snow here (yesterday).

Oh how funny, the April fools ideas are great! The kids are too cute and are good sports. The photos are gorgeous even if they are last years ;)

Oh man oh man - you were in Johnsville! Though I live in Honduras now (and have for about a dozen years) I saw that photo of the old brick house at the corner of 75 and Molasses and about swooned. I used to drive by that spot almost every day! Driving about and looking at all the old farm houses was a super favorite pastime of mine, back in MD ('course, gas was cheaper back then. sigh).

I enjoy your blog - it's a bit of a taste of "home" for me. Thanks!
