This is how Eby greeted me on Monday after he had played outside. Not only was he covered with mud, he somehow managed to put splatters and smears of mud all over the front porch. I gave him a bucket of warm water and some cleaning rags and put him to work. When he was finally done, he came inside wearing completely soaked clothes. He told me that to keep warm, he stood in the bucket of warm water while he worked. I couldn’t help laughing.
Sadly, that was the beginning of a very long, messy day during which I was forced to put lots of effort into having self-control. It did not come easy to me.
I seriously hope that the weather is going to improve soon and the mud will begin to dry up. However, since we had three inches of spring snow today, it’s not looking good.
By the way, I had an opportunity to be part of this Hostess Twinkie advertising campaign, and it was too good to pass up. Generally I keep all advertising to a minimum, but I thought I would give this particular one a try. The small amount of money I make with my blog is a true blessing to my family, and with eleven of us at home, every bit helps.
Have a great Thursday, friends.
