It's a table for the deck or porch which holds plants for salad fixin's. He plans to grow lettuce and herbs like basil and parsley. The drill died, so construction is on hold, but this will be great when it's done!
Here's the directions:
I'm looking forward to the finished product!
And no, the paper monster has not been tamed. Maybe by tonight or tomorrow. We'll see.

This is the U.S. Census Bureau in Suitland, Maryland, about 13 miles from Washington, DC. It's one of the most bizarre buildings I've ever seen!
At first glance, it looks like warped wood on the walls, but it's really curved pieces of metal. Over the whole building. And the windows.
And to think I actually know 2 people who work in this building every day! I think I'd go quietly out of my mind.

Here is one of my favorite pictures of me:
I was 2 years old when this was taken. My hair is much darker now, but the same eyes and smile are there, although I shed my baby teeth a long time ago. :)
What's that? How old am I? Let's just say I'm on the back side of 40 and leave it at that, shall we?
Happy Birthday to me! And here's hoping for MANY more!

Here is a picture I took a couple of years ago at St. Mary's State Park, not too far from the landing site:
Southern Maryland is so pretty. I feel really lucky to be a resident!

I stocked up on paper towels, toilet paper, cat litter, and got a couple of cute springtime rugs for the kitchen.
Here's one of my favorite places to eat, fast-food style:
Here's what's in the box--it's for JJ and Nicky:
Their hush puppies are so yummy!
Here are a few things I like to collect, courtesy of, believe it or not, Safeway:
We can say I like to collect Beanie Babies, or we can say I like to collect holiday decor. They both work!
It was a nice day. :)

Congrats, B and Stacie! We can't wait until August!

And here is the finished product...everything put back into place.
I put all the clothes back with the hangers reversed, so that we can see what we use. Eric and I agreed that after 1 year (next First Day of Spring) anything left with the hanger backwards would get donated. I can't wait to see!
This is the pile of stuff waiting for Purple Heart next month. I think Eric and I did a good job getting rid of things that no longer serve us!

On the first day of spring, most Rita's give away 1 free regular ice to every customer, to celebrate the coming of warmer weather. We got the Mango--it was yummy!

This was taken at Great Falls State Park, on the Virginia side (you can see Maryland on the other side of the falls). We saw this lovely scenery from the comfort of the hiking trail--we did NOT venture into the water! Too scary...well, for me!

Do you think this is Muffin's way of telling me she needs a bath?

I love Key Lime Pie!
Also in honor of Pi Day, here are a few of my favorite pi jokes:
Q: What do you call what happens when you cut a jack o'lantern by its diameter?
A: Pumpkin Pi.
Q: What do you get when you take green cheese and divide its circumference by its diameter?
A: Moon Pi.
Q:What do you get when you take the sun and divide its circumference by its diameter?
A: Pi in the sky.
Happy Pi Day!

I don't have any new pictures of my black cat, but here's a really scary one from our Thanksgiving vacation:
This was taken at Universal Studios Orlando at the new Simpsons ride. This was the entrance. Yes, we were all eaten by Krusty! (Fun ride, by the way!)

Yeah, yeah, I know...horrendous glasses! They were dark blue octogons. WHAT was I thinking?? But anyway, here I am, 12 years old, in my Junior Scout uniform.
Happy Birthday, Miss Juliette! Go, Girl Scouts!

Yeah...I don't think so!

Here's a nice house on our main highway. But wait...what's that in the side yard? Right next to the house?
Yep...it's a barn and a silo! Right in the front yard!
Gotta love the country!

Here are a couple of scary pictures from our travels:
This is outside the local Hallmark store. I don't think I'll be heading there anytime soon!
This is outside the McDonald's drive-thru. I'm so glad we were in the car!
These pictures remind me of that scene in the movie "Ghost" when the glass windows break at the end of the movie and bad guy Tony Goldwyn gets impaled with the shards of glass. These icicles look just like sharp glass!
I tried to get pictures of the morons who were driving around with 8 inches of snow on top of their cars, but then I would have been guilty of driving carelessly also. Folks, please! Clean off your cars and trucks of all snow...it's a hazard. And remember, if your license plate is not visible due to snow build-up, it's illegal and you'll receive a ticket.
That is all. This Public Service Announcement has been brought to you by Shutterbugs. :)

This is the road leading from our street out of the neighborhood. Eric took this picture and it made it on CNN.com. Now Eric is an iReporter. :)
Here is the front of our house. I love this tree in our front yard--it looks beautiful with Christmas lights, and even more so with snow on all its branches!
Why don't y'all come out and set a spell? The back deck is nice this time of year!

Such huge flakes! And here we are a half-hour later:
It's a much finer snow now, but still coming down. And this is only the first part...the second storm is coming later this evening.
I'm thinking it's gonna be a 3-day weekend!
