friday fanfare

I've decided to forgo Fashion Friday this week for two reasons.  The first being that I don't want to start an every single week trend that has my readers (ha - "my readers" always makes me chuckle because I really don't have any) expecting a post every Friday.  The second being that I haven't really been in a fashionable mood this week.  Unless you count color coordinating my entire outfit (down to the socks and sports bra) for my 3:30 a.m. trip to the ER last Saturday.  Did I mention the power was out too?  Despite the feeling that I could die at any second, I was not about to walk into FMC all mis-matchy.  Impressive, I know.

It has been super warm here lately.  And by super warm I mean in the mid 50's.  I started yesterday morning with a sweetened passion tea lemonade, which only means one thing, spring is here (or at the very least is on I-70 in Illinois and will be here by next weekend).  I've wanted to take a walk in the evenings but things kept getting in the way from me having a kidney stone, to C having to work late, to Lenten services, and most recently rain. 

We have a very exciting weekend planned at the Elsea household.  I'm not sure what it entirely involves yet.  But I'm sure there will be some cleaning and movie watching and walking.  The landlord is coming to check the water temps on Tuesday so he'll be in and out of our bathroom.  I should probably at the very least pick up the ruler, coffee filters, and other pee strainers I had been using and put those away (Landlord was supposed to come yesterday, which didn't happen, therefore my cleaning didn't happen either).  Or maybe I'll just keep them out for the next stone in 5-10-15 years.  Oh, and I'm thinking about actually cooking for us tonight.  It's been roughly 2 weeks since I've made a meal for us.  I bet C will be very surprised.

One more thing that's happening this weekend.  One of my boy groups, The Ohio State Men's Basketball team, will be playing in the Big Ten tournament.  Here's to hoping they make it past the first game at noon today.  Then next week, the beginning of March Madness!!

Update: I'm still sick and thus not thinking about cooking for us tonight.  Add another tick to the tally.  Maybe tomorrow.
