What's Going On

I might be tempting fate, but it looks like winter is wrapping up for good here in New Jersey. Thank goodness, because I'm down to the last of my firewood. Although it feels like spring, I'm thinking I have some time before I need to start on any projects in the yard. There's no real rush. Until then, here's a short list of what's going on with Clan McFarland.

What I'm Binge Watching on my DVR:
POLDARK FANS! See what the cast look like in real life - now:
"Poldark" from PBS Masterpiece Theater. It stars Aiden Turner and is set in 18th century Cornwall, England. Yeah, that's all I needed to know.

What The Red Headed Kid Is Currently Obsessed With:
Legos. He's gone from playing pool and doing trick shots on the floor to all Legos, all the time. The best part of this new obsession?  I can finally throw away all those empty Pringles cans.

What Magazine I Can't Seem To Put Down:
Magazine | This Old House:
This Old House. We have a bunch of household projects on our list for the upcoming months and this magazine is going to be key to getting those things done correctly. They always seem to know what information I need before I even know I need it.

What Carbohydrate I'm Gonna Try to Make Next:
 German Soft Pretzels. Because they're chewy. They're salty. And I need them.

What's Making Me Feel Nostalgic:
This kid driving my car around town. I can not believe he's old enough to drive my car. I swear it was only yesterday I was signing him up for kindergarten. Fun fact- apparently his playing hour after hour of all those racing video games has paid off. Reagan's a natural behind the wheel.

What I'm Designing and Ordering Online:
Graduation announcements for this girl. Colleen graduates from Texas A&M this May. Although she's going to stick around and complete her master's degree, I need to get this project done ASAP so we can mail them out. Couldn't be more proud of her.

What Project I'm Dragging My Feet About:
Painting my ceilings. I don't know if you can see it in this picture, but I had to patch a 6 inch hole in the middle of the kitchen ceiling. The patch turned out great, but the color difference sticks out like a sore thumb and needs to be painted. Which, in turn, means the whole kitchen ceiling needs to be painted. Blech. Try not to be too jealous.

What Most Recent Purchase Makes Me Super Happy:
This shirt from twostringjane. I knew from the first moment I saw it on Etsy, I was gonna grab it to wear this summer. It is super soft, runs true to size and is stinking cute.

What Sports Practice I'm Watching:
Baseball. The Red Headed Kid just started up his spring season and is loving it. I love getting to sit back and watch him do his thing. P.S. I know this picture is way old (like from his T Ball days) but I swear this is exactly how he still looks to me.

What Trip I Can't Wait To Go On:
Our anniversary trip to Montreal. Come June, The Man and I will have been married for 25 years. I've never been to Canada and I'm super excited to check it out. I hear it's where all the French people live. And that can only mean one thing. Fromage for Cindy. Just to be on the safe side, I'm going to build my travel wardrobe around yoga pants.

So that's about it. That's what's on my plate for the next couple of weeks. If I'm being honest here, some of it's gonna be fun to do and some of it's not. But here's the thing about being a McFarland. Life might get a little crazy at times, but at least it's never boring.
