April 2020 Randoms

All hail the empty bottle of hand soap. 😄 I thought it was pretty with its lacy bubbles. 

Sam asked me to take videos of him doing several different water bottle flipping tricks in the garage.

This was Sam for much of the spring. 😂

I started a Thomas Kinkade Sound of Music puzzle. It turned out to be a lot harder than I thought it would be and ended up taking me months to put together, and that was with help!  

But I did get manage to get the border together (mostly) the day that I started it.

Live a well-edited life, that's one of my personal philosophies.

These were my first two loaves of sourdough bread made from a starter given to me by a friend. I know the loaves are a little placental-looking in nature, but they were good! I make some almost every week now. The boys eat it up!

These veggie flatbread pizzas were really good too. Another fine meal brought to us by HelloFresh.

I saw this in The Friend and thought it was kind of cool. Elder Uchtdorf and I are forty years apart and we both like banana splits, we both have two children, and we were both baptized in a swimming pool. But I've never been a pilot and he'll never be a stay-at-home mom. 😄


My soon-to-be indoor strawberry garden (newsflash, it still hasn't sprouted any strawberries).

But these did end up working! More pictures to come in the weeks ahead.


A cardinal in mid-flight. Not a great picture but I still like it!

I also like my decorations.

I was waiting for curbside delivery of our dinner order from California Pizza Kitchen. It was so weird to see the mall parking lot empty on what would normally be a busy and crowded Saturday there.

I liked this outdoor "egg chair" that I saw at Target but knew I wouldn't get it so I took a picture of it instead.

Toilet paper was starting to come back in stock towards the end of the month!

More signs of the times...

And more signs of what a bad year 2020 is turning out to be!
