{hello friday} 3.22.2013

As I sat down to write this at my kitchen counter I heard a loud thump and saw something falling out of a tree in my periferal vision out my kitchen window.

It happens all the time, but this was LOUD.

I went to the back door and did not see any large branches, but upon further inspection saw a squirrel hunched down under our table.

He seriously had to drop about 30-40 feet out of the trees.

I opened the door to try to sneak out to get Odyssey, but the squirrel came to and ran over to a tree and over the fence.

Man talk about getting back up after taking a big fall.


We are officially on Spring Break around here.

What does that mean?

Not much, just that the kids are out of school.

We’ll probably be doing a lot of the same things we did this week…

cleaning up messes…

play games

Inspired by this

I decided to do this…

in our playroom.

I am not handy with a saw and I don’t think we even have a table saw. So, I just glued a 12″ x 12″ canvas to the back of each game board and hung them up on the wall.

Originally, I used our more current game boards.

Then, after thrifting, I found some “vintage” game boards from the 80’s that I liked better.

So, I took the newer game boards off the canvases and put some thrifted ones back on.

I got the canvases on sale at Michaels…7 canvases for $20…so that’s less than $3 a piece.

The Chutes and Ladders, Candy Land and Life games were all found at Goodwill for $1.99 each.

We had the Scrabble and Monopoly games on hand.

So, for about $20, I added some colorful and playful art to our playroom!

home is…being playful.
