I don't do windows

He does!
Who is the best husband in the world? Rick is (I must admit that this comment may be prejudice as I married the guy and like to keep him around).

He sprayed them all down, made warm, sudsy water and scrubbed and squeegied them clean.

It is obvious that while he is a diligent, hard working man, I just stand by and watch him do his chores. Now, to teach him how to run the washing machine and dryer...

My View

I cheated a bit for this post. We were on a long weekend mini-vacation at Dworshak Reservoir in N. Idaho when i was tagged by Lisa at The Tin House for the Front Door/Back Door Meme. The Meme simply asks for photos taken of the view out your front and back doors. So, I brought the view from our camping tent back to share.

This is the beautiful skyline directly out the front of my tent at about 9 a.m. The guys were already on the lake fishing by this time and the kids were just getting up. It was so peaceful. I was enjoying a nice cup of coffee alone and taking advantage of the quiet time alone to catch up on some necessary reading for class.

Stepping away from our tent to the right was Jim and Joyce's motor home, the fire pit and our gathering area. Obviously the guys were back from fishing by this time as Rick is relaxing and reading his book in the sun.
Directly to the left of the tent was a large field. The kids played catch and frisbee here, rode their bikes on the the other side of the fence and had long games of flyers up and freeze tag here.

Bloggers I've tagged are:
Fat Beagle Farm
and of course Angela at The Country Cellar.

Field Trip

I supervised a small group of 3rd graders on their trip to Riverfront Park in Spokane this week. We saw an amazing movie on caves at the IMAX. My group included Beatriz, Gage, Tatum, Javier and Luis.

Fruit-full weekend

Nothin' says spring like...
...a sunny Sunday for planting the garden...
...rhubarb muffins, rhubarb pie, stewed rhubarb...
...I'm getting a bit ahead of myself...
...a batch of new chicks...
...and some pretty flowers hanging on the patio.
