Counting the Days, Measuring the Heights

I'll start with latter, a project I finally finished to measure the heights to which the boys have grown, a giant wall ruler:

I picked up a 1x6 pine board and stained it to match the basement floor boards. Once dry, I marked off the inches and feet using a ruler, then drew in the numbers with a pencil:

Using a sharpie, I outlined the numbers and drew the hash marks for the inches and feet:

I filled in the numbers with black acrylic paint:

And had SPH help me nail it to the wall:

While we have no plans to move any time soon, this board could move with us if we go to another home, and we'll have a permanent reminder of the boys' growth each year!

And now that I'm done making the ruler to measure the heights, it's time for me to focus on counting the days, 6 to be exact, until Easter arrives and my Lenten Vegan Challenge is complete.

So without further adieu, my last week of vegan/flexitarian meals is here:

The Best Barbecue Veggie Burgers, Asparagus, Roasted, Parmesan Grits
Taco Lasagna with Cilantro Lime Cream Sauce
Sweet Potato Enchiladas, Cilantro-Lime Rice
Peanutty Stirfry
Eggplant Parmesan, minus the Parm for me, Big Salad

I'm already planning my Easter menu...and there will be cheese!

Have a sweet week,

My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for ,my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website:
