Re: The Treehouse.  No Girlz Allow3d!

[quote author=NDGal link=board=jibbajabba1;num=1014731150;start=165#17 4 date=05/08/02 at 22:26:40]Parts of the state are.  I missed part of the weather so I'm not sure if we're in it or not.

We had over an inch of rain in the last 24 hours, though. Since it's been raining for over a week, I feel like I've moved to Seattle!

That is a neat website....It gave me a lot of ideas for my Toddlers....(although I might need to make some of them a little more developmentally appropriate.   The recipes can be used with your older kids, too, though!)

I printed quite a bit of it and made a binder full of ideas for work...[/quote]

Most of our snow melted as soon as it hit the ground, but when I pulled into my parents' driveway yesterday, there was a mud puddle 8 inches deep...

Some of my best memories of childhood were of working in the kitchen with my Mom and my Grandmother... and I hope to build that same sort of tradition for my kids. We always take at least one day to make Christmas cookies together (which can be very interesting with 6 kids wielding cookie cutters :-) ) One can never do too much of that sort of parent-child bonding, though.

Sounds like you've also gotten some rain.

There are also recipes for playdough, painting,  art stuff, and of course, food! Anyway...I've got a couple of more if you're interested.

I just found this one, but it looks interesting:

Re: The Treehouse.  No Girlz Allow3d!

Yeah, the weather's been pretty nasty... rain, hail, snow, wind... and the temperature got down to 30 last night... today it was mostly clear, but still cold... it's supposed to warm up by the weekend, though... I hope it actually does because the 'mere male' has a golf tournament on Saturday and it would be miserable for him if it's raining...

I'd appreciate the links to the other sites... I always like ideas on things like that to do with the kids...

Re: The Treehouse.  No Girlz Allow3d!

Just stopped in to say thanks for the drumstick and beer...they were great! Unfortunately, I had to down em quick cause I had to get to my second job, and I ended up with a massive brain  :frozen:!! And yes, I am a typical male, just like you two are typical females...

Also, I agree, its more than past time to let the Trip/Brian thread die......

The weather's still wierd here too, it snowed last night and was in the 70's the day before yesterday!

Hi Alkazar!  What's happening in your part of the world today?

BTW, Where is GB?

Re: The Treehouse.  No Girlz Allow3d!

Hi, ND and Alkazar! How's everything going today?

<pours beer into frosty mug, sits in TJ's favorite chair>

'Typical', eh? Aw, there's nothing typical about us Bronco girls... we're unique.

It's almost Friday already... is it just me or has this week seemed to fly by?

Re: The Treehouse.  No Girlz Allow3d!

I'm just saying that I'm as "typical" as you two.

Not much going on here, just trying to wrap up a few projects I'm working on before my final day. Getting out a few resume's and such. I'm hoping I'll start interviewing next week. If all else fails though, I can still go through a temp agency. I've landed a couple of good jobs through them over the years. I just hope my next position lasts more than 2 years....{sigh}

Haven't seen GB very much recently at all. I think he posted a couple of days ago, but mostly hes been MIA.

Time is definately strange this week, and I expect it to continue next week as well. It seems to be crawling on one hand (the part of me thats wanting to get this change over with), and flying by on the other (whenever I realize how much I need to get done by next Friday).

How's things been going with you two?

Re: The Treehouse.  No Girlz Allow3d!

Hi, Alkazar! :-)

<bringing in a box of donuts>
Care for a donut and maybe a fresh cup of coffee, tea, or hot chocolate?

Looks like you're going to have no trouble at all making the Ring of Fame before next Friday.

All's going well around here... it's been at least partly sunny (and all the snow has melted again! ) but it's still a bit cool for May. My lilac bush is usually in full bloom by Memorial Day, but it seems quite late at budding this year... the cool weather is delaying my irises and wild roses, too....

Re: The Treehouse.  No Girlz Allow3d!

I'll definately take a donut, but its a little to early yet for coffee. I'll just take a Bud instead..

it's still a little cool here too, but not too bad. I've got a Lilac bush in the front yard as well, but hardly any blooms. My biggest problem is mushrooms in the front yard. There was a tree that was cut down before we moved in. Instead of cutting out the stump, they just buried it and now we've got mushrooms all over the place.

You'll make it, I'm sure... piece of cake!

<pours beer into frosty mug, hands it and a donut to Alkazar>

What sort of treatment does it take to get rid of mushrooms on your lawn? We usually get a lot of dandelions if we don't use a lot of Weed & Feed... but that's OK because my boys enjoy bringing me huge bouquets of dandelions... which ends up decreasing their numbers because they're picked before they can go to seed. (And that's one kind of 'flower' growing in our yard that I don't mind them picking!)

My kids would definitely pick all the dandelions... I get some really impressive bouquets early in the spring... they run out and grab all that they can before their big brother mows the lawn...
Are the mosquitoes out yet in your area, Alkazar? They're already proliferating here... of course, living close to the river, we get millions of them... (OK, millions might be a slight exaggeration, but it sure seems like that many )

Re: The Treehouse.  No Girlz Allow3d!

We're at least a couple of miles from the nearest river, the North Platte, and no lakes to speak of within 10 miles. Also, they're predicting a drought here this summer so I don't think we'll see much of a problem with 'skeeters this year. And you probably aren't exaggerating, they're worse than rabbits when it comes to breeding!

No kidding... the worst infestation of mosquitoes I ever saw was a couple of years ago... this one summer evening my Dad, Mr. Blue and I were participating in a 'jam session' at a resort along the river. We were set up outdoors in a gazebo and as it grew dark, the mosquitoes just swarmed all over everyone. We had citronella candles all around (they're supposed to deter insects) but that hardly even slowed them down. At one point, I killed 5 mosquitoes on my Dad's leg with one slap... Fortunately, he was wearing brand-new denim jeans and they hadn't been able to drill through the heavy fabric... but they were sure trying! Some people left just because the mosquitoes were so bad... and we still refer to the event as "the Great Mosquito Banquet"....

Re: The Treehouse.  No Girlz Allow3d!

I don't think I've experienced anything that bad yet, but I remember one year, back in 74 or 75, we went camping at a small campground near Lake O'Havre here in Colorado and the skeeters were so bad they drove off at least 5 families (including ours) who were camped around the lake.

Re: The Treehouse.  No Girlz Allow3d!

The mosquitoes must have been pretty bad if they chased off 5 families...

I think there had just been a fresh hatch of young mosquitoes the night of the Great Mosquito Banquet... I'd never seen them that thick before... it was really amazing... it didn't seem funny the night it happened, but we do look back on it and laugh....

I can imagine that it wasn't much fun as you were re-packing everything... so, did you head back for home or in search of another campsite?
