It is spring break this week and I have a delightful chance to just do a little bit of nothing. When I get a break from work I am usually filling it with travel but this week was dedicated to reading, working out, and trying out some new hobbies: gardening and scrapbooking. As far as the gardening goes, it was limited to four large pots so I got that "hobby" out of the way quickly. And the verdit on gardening - not favorable. I thought a 'try and see' attitude would work with this new hobby but with my lack of knowledge I am living in constant fear that my plants will die any minute. I can't even bare to look out the window in the morning for fear I have failed them. And the verdit on scrapbooking - highly favorable. I loved looking at all the supplies they have for this and had a good time puting together some creations. The down side is all the mockery. Katie, my sister, wouldn't let up on the stereotype that scrapbooking seems to create. But alas, I still enjoyed it. I only dented our large stack of pictures but here are some of my attempts.
