{Day 69} Daisy? Zinnia? Orange Flower?


We planted these beauties in the island at the top of our driveway.  Right in front of the Irises.

{Day 68} Product 19


Neither of the girls ever eats cereal.  I mean never.  And then somehow.  Madalyn was possessed.  And decided to try MY cereal.  Mine.  Mine.  Mine.  Naturally.  She loves it.  It's like manna from heaven.  She likes it for breakfast.  Maybe even two bowls.  She has it for second breakfast.  An afternoon snack.  Dessert.  All the while referring to it as HER cereal.

{Day 63} Japanese Maple


Every winter I am quite convinced that my Japanese Maple has died.  And then in the Spring.  I am always surprised to see that it is fully leafed.  It kinda sneaks up on you.

{Day 60} Cookie or Cat?



I don't even want to talk about why I still have undelivered cookies at my house.

{Day 57} What is it?



This is growing in my backyard.  I have no idea what it is.  If it's a weed.  Or something lovely.  Or maybe even dangerous.  I just thought it looked interesting.

{Day 55} Happy St. Patrick's Day

It's wear green day at school.  And the class with the most green items gets a party.  So...Madalyn loaded up on the green.  Even wearing a lap blanket.  And a green pen behind her ears.

{Day 53} Beware the Ides of March

Beware!  Or celebrate as the case may be.  It was for us 14 years ago.  So, to celebrate our anniversary, we went out to dinner at Ted's.  And then hung out at Barnes and Noble.  All sans children.  It was a glorious day!

{Day 52} Happy Pi Day

It's Pi day...Katie's favorite day of the year.  So.  Naturally.  We made pie.  With strawberries making the pi symbol.  We even had pie for dinner.  Egg pie.  Yum.

{Day 50} La Madeleine

Somehow Katie and I have become addicted to expensive sandwich shops.  First Panera.  And now La Madeleine.  This is my yummy lunch: a chicken parisien sandwich.

{Day 49} Lunch with Madalyn

Madalyn is constantly begging me to come and have lunch with her at school.  We get to sit at a special table.  She can invite a friend.  And when the rest of the kids get too loud and have to be quiet, we can keep talking.  But I think the whole reason she likes me to come is that I always give her ice cream money.

I just love it when I have donations...and the company comes to pick them up from me.

{Day 44} I might need wrist surgery

After looking at Madalyn's nightstand, I thought I'd show you the books on mine.  I am reading "World Without End" now.  But I am thinking that my wrists will need a break before I start "Under the Dome."

{Day 43} On Madalyn's nightstand


After reading that Barnes and Noble defines "Are you there God, It's me Margaret..." as "iffy" for anyone under 14, I got the book for Madalyn.  Who is 8.  She has really liked it.  Asked lots of questions.  (Like:  what are loafers?).  And has been full of lots of giggles.

{Day 39} Khadija

My friend Khadija saw the link on facebook for my picture of Madalyn (which by the way is one of my very favorite pictures of Madalyn - so captures HER!).  So...she decided that she needed to be my next model.  My next photoshop guinea pig.  And the subject of her very own feature here at Drops of Sunshine.
