We staycationed last week at home for Spring Break. Having no plans felt great, easy, restful. Even though each day we were doing something, the beach, fines, tennis, grammas house, and a day in Eugene too. We started the week wide open. We got creative and stay with the Easter egg dye and decided to cut up bed sheets and curtains and dyed them. I have no idea what we'll do with them but it was a fun process.

The rain held back all day and was expected late in the evening. I took the opportunity to put some time and miles on the motorcycle. It was cold and overcast and even with heated hand grips I had to stop halfway through my ride into the woods to heat my fingertips on the hot engine. I was able to ride 70 miles today and wanted to go more. I'm really looking forward to a nice long ride with Tres. We have gone on a few short rides. The ride was beautiful! I loved seeing the rushing creek and the solitude in the woods.

I got a sourdough starter from my mom. It lay dormant in the fridge for a week, I pulled it out Thursday and fed it every 12 hours for three feedings. Saturday morning I made sourdough pancakes, then Sourdough pizza, and last I made banana sourdough muffins. They were all devoured! Everyone loved it. Looks like it will be sourdough on the weekend. Let's see how long I can keep the kitchen let alive. With proper feeding and care.

When you have a big family, it's always someone's birthday! We had so much fun celebrating Alex's birthday this weekend. With the help of aunt Mary and my mom we had a seafood feast the most delicious cake and best of time together laughing, eating, and talking. I feel pretty lucky she wanted to celebrate at our house.
