Tropical Spring Break
I'm on a tropical spring break this week. Isn't that obvious from the palm tree?
Actually, the palm tree is part of the "lovely" decor of my husband's temporary city apartment in Pittsburgh. This is what happens when good rooms must suffer from bad design!
We're house hunting in Pittsburgh this week. (more on this on my home relocation blog----->) Our first night in the city, I wasn't sure if I'd be able to sleep with all of the noise. Trains rumble buy, semis use their jack brakes, cars honk, sirens wail, and the jack hammer starts its work at 8am. Sharp.
That's when my husband showed me his handy new device...a white noise machine. It lulls you to sleep with a number of wonderful settings, like 'rain forest', 'summer nights', 'heart beat', 'rain', 'waterfall', and my son's favorite, 'ocean'.
Imagine sleeping under a palm tree (albeit a fake palm tree), with the soothing sounds of waves lapping on the shore and sea gulls cawing in the distance. Ah, bliss!
I'll be back to crafting soon. In the meantime, think happy thoughts...have a tropical drink with a little umbrella, soak up some sunshine, and enjoy the singing birds.
