It's been sooo long...

Swamped with school, work, kids, life.  You know the drill.  I have not been making anything or lifting my nose from the grindstone (except a little bit).  I have been swimming 1000 yards three days a week, which is pretty exciting for me.  The Arizonans think it is much too cold to swim but I think 80 degrees is plenty warm, plus the pool is heated.

Just a link today to my new favorite thing: bento boxes.   I ordered a panda one in a moment of weakness and am waiting with bated breath (a friend asked if it is for the kids...... ha!).

I would PAY for 80 degrees here. Snow in the forecast for next week (but really, I'm kinda excited about that!) Glad you're well.

80 degrees IS too cold, are you crazy!! ;)

I'm glad you are well and um, keeping busy. Just think, once school is done, you'll a lot more time to play. Yay!

It's amazing how relative a thing temperature is and how our bodies get used to it all. I distinctly remember growing up in a sub-tropical climate and bundling up in coats and sweaters and scarves. The coldest it got was maybe 60 degrees. Sounds like even that would be frigid by Arizona standards! Good for you and your swimming, I need to take a page from your book and get myself in the water!
