Hello Monday - Busy Week Ahead

Small Signs
Small Signs of Spring

Hello Appliance Repair Man | there's something wrong with our clothes dryer - it is making a terrible noise, like a bearing has gone out on the rotating drum, or a balance / counter weight is loose. We're afraid to run the dryer now because it shut down once, probably on a motor fault. The kids are freaking out a bit as we have to prioritize what we wash, and of course, all their clothes are dirty.

Hello Sump Pump Hum | We received over 6" of rain last week, and the sump pump still kicks on every now and then. During the heaviest rain, it ran every 30 seconds or so. But that motor humming is a nice sound - it keeps our basement dry!

Hello Sara Bareilles | It's been three years since her last full length album, and she's releasing the first single off "The Blessed Unrest" on Tuesday. It is called "Brave" and you can hear it today:


Of course, I can't wait for the full album's release in July, but for now, I'll have to buy the single....

Hello Illinois Marathon | I'll be running the half marathon Saturday morning. Scott is running the 10K. I'm hoping for not-too-hot weather - 40 degrees F would be perfect, but I like things on the cool side. In the wake of last week's bombing of the Boston Marathon, there will be many tributes to those who lost their lives, who were injured, who were indelibly changed. I'm sure it will be a great event.

Hello Jazz Band Performances | Our middle school's second performance in two weeks - the jazz bands are performing at the high school band fundraiser events. We get to hear the high school groups, too, always a treat.

hello monday | looking forward to what the week has in store for us.

Inspired by my friend, Lee at Embrace Life, Hello Monday provides a peek into the coming week - in all its glory. Join us and Lisa for the Hello Monday fun

*Sump pump* - that made me giggle! Being swedish sometimes make me appreciate some combinations of english words that might not be as fun for those with english as their native language..! :-)

I love that Sara is finally doing some new music. I always enjoy her talent.

It looks like a full calendar at your house. Good Luck with the dryer. I hate to sound too old, but they don't make appliances as well as they used to.

Sounds like a great week ahead, Shirley!
Sure hope things dry out for you. That's a lot of rain, for sure.

Good luck on Marathon Day!!

Wow! Busy week indeed! Good luck in the marathon. I'll be thinking of you! =)
