Weekend Wind-Down 2.21.14

Good evening!  Do you have any plans this weekend?

We'll have a quiet weekend.  Today marked my daughter's fifth full day of school this month.  It's amazing how many snow days and two hour delays this long winter has given to us.  The children are eager for school and their regular schedules.

This week my husband and I took Brother, age 5, to his neurologist for a regular appointment.  All is well, and no adjustments are needed.  It has been 1.5 years since his last seizure.  We are grateful for his effective medication.  (You can read about his first and second seizures and some thoughts to go with them at the links.)

My big accomplishment for the week was cleaning the three bathrooms.  Don't laugh.  It just seems like they are rarely clean at the same time.  I learned the joys of a squeegee on the bathroom mirrors and appreciated the power of my Dawn and vinegar tub cleaner.

Here on the blog, I shared homemade hot pockets, some cute board books, a canning jar substitute, and the simple winter window candles on my kitchen windowsill.

It's now time for the Weekend Wind-Down Party where you can see all sorts of fun ideas from around Bloggy World.  Ideas are added all weekend long, so be sure to return!
