happiness project: cooking + misc (apr)

Thrive!, Project 43 and the monthly projects in my Happiness Project … so many projects! In reality, they are all facets of the same project, guiding me to finish or give up old projects and move forward on the ones that are most important to me. March’s main theme was House. As with past months, I’ve made a good start on the tasks I set out and have broken the remaining bits down nicely to […]

More cleaning up. Rob and the girls headed out to run lots of errands. I went down to Oakhurst to volunteer for 3.5 hours at the Earth Day Festival. I was asleep on my feet. When I got home, I crashed on the couch. Rob took Camille to a friend’s for the evening. Rob and Chloe went out to dinner. I woke enough to help clean the kitchen (again). I hate feeling so under the […]

School and work. Chloe didn’t feel well enough to go to gymnastics, so we went to Kroger instead. At home, we worked on cleaning up all around the house. We made homemade pizzas for dinner and then got to work on dyeing eggs. I still feel awful – maybe allergies?

photo friday: oakland cemetery flowers

Our trip to Oakland Cemetery last month was at an ideal time of year. Early spring. Not too hot, yet warm. And the flowers, oh the flowers in bloom!

I’m suffering jetlag. Woke at 3:30 and had a cloudy head all day (or that could be the pollen?). Chloe was feeling so awful that she stayed home from school for the day. Since she was home, I didn’t go to the Red Cross. Camille came home and did some homework. I fell asleep early.

Sluggish all day, including Phelix. Girls off to school. I worked and caught up on other things, then did carpool. Chloe managed to make it through gymnastics. I went to sleep quite early. Gazoo seems to be quite happy to have us home again.

snapshots from gooney road – 15 apr 2014

Up early to have breakfast in our hotel in Amsterdam. Packing up and a slow walk to the train station to see the city a bit more. Train to Schiphol. Shopping, coffee, and lines. Long flight home watching movies. A quick transfer from the plane to home via MARTA. Grocery store and picking up Phelix from boarding. Unpacking and laundry. A text from my mom that my dad was taken to the ER by EMS; […]

Greece Trip: Day 11

Naming this post “Greece Trip: Day 11″ is a bit strange as we have left Greece behind and today traveled from Amsterdam to Decatur, but oh well. Because of the hour difference from Greece to The Netherlands, I managed to sleep in, yet still get up early. We got the girls moving and went down to breakfast in the hotel’s bar. Chloe enjoyed having toast with Nutella *and* chocolate sprinkles as part of her breakfast. […]

Up at 4:30 (Greece time). Dressed, downstairs, ride to the airport. The lines were confusing, but between the girls and me, we got everything set quickly. The flight to Athens was 30 minutes long. In Athens, we found a nice corner in a cafe until Rob arrived. Check-in, time in the Sky Lounge, then a flight to Amsterdam. Met up with Marielba, went to the Anne Frank House and on a canal boat tour. back […]

Greece Trip: Day 10

As usual, I did not sleep well the night before an early flight. The wake up call came at 4:45, but I had been up for a while by then. We finished packing up and headed downstairs for our 5:15 ride to the airport. I was surprised at how crowded the airport was; ours was the only flight, but it was a big one. I waited in line for the e-Checkin (two kiosks). Most people […]

snapshots from gooney road – 13 apr 2014

Up a little earlier. Breakfast, buses to Akrotiri. A stroll round the archaeological site and then a hike over the mountain to Red Beach. A bus trip back to Thira with a literal pit stop in Pyrgos. Dinner in Thira as the sun went down, then a missed bus. Souvenirs, taxi, arrangements and bed.

Greece Trip: Day 9

We got going a little bit earlier today than yesterday in order to catch an earlier bus to Thira. After another nice breakfast, we walked down to the Kamari bus stop and waited for the bus. In Thira, we switched to the bus to Akrotiri. Though worried the bus would drop us in town, after dropping people off in a few small towns, the bus actually stopped right at the archaeological site. We headed into […]
