Really Random Thursday, 3/31/16

Happy last day of March, everyone!

So this started happening on Tuesday The lightbulb had burned out in the kitchen ceiling light. When I got ready to change it, I noticed the fixture was starting to separate from the ceiling. Weird.

By yesterday, it looked like this.
Seriously. The light box was not braced to anything, just shoved up in the ceiling, by the person who did the wiring when we remodeled the kitchen about eight years ago.

The electrician (not  the one who originally wired it) just left. Things are good as new. Whew. Electricity always makes me a bit nervous...

Backtracking to the weekend, our church has an Easter Eggstravaganza in a nearby park. This was the only picture I took--Charlotte kept the face painter busy doing more than her face. :)
Sunday was a great day as well. As we have done in the last several years, we had lunch in our patio after church.

Mark makes a huge stack of crepes and we have all kinds of fillings. Then because it was Levi's birthday on Sunday as well, everyone stayed through the afternoon.

Batting practice by the birthday boy. And later he was hitting water balloons. Have you seen these easy-fill water balloons? They are SO cool, and the kids had a blast with them.

More water fun.Charlotte was trying to get the little ones wet but things kind of backfired on her.
Where's Ella??
Birthday dinner: homemade mac and cheese, grilled chicken and strawberries. Can't believe this one is 8! It was a fun day.
Seen in a window. Quilting inspiration.
I'm sure this package was in great condition when shipped by the fabric company. And then FedEx took over. What happened??
And yes...
Any randomness happening in your world?

This weekend is the charity quilt auction. Tomorrow I will be reposting what I wrote last week for 52quilters. Hope you will stop by if you didn't get a chance to read it already.

Zoiks! That light fixture would freak me out, too. I find myself amazed almost daily by how lazy people (say some electricians in this case) can be. You'd think I'd be over that, but new examples keep coming along... glad you're fixed up properly now.

Does a train run through your backyard? I noticed the crossing sign and envisioned a train just past the fence. Must keep you awake at night. haha

Electricity is one thing that makes me nervous too. Yikes....that looks like it was a bad job.

Easter sounds like fun up there. Happy birthday to the big 8 year old. It must have been a great day for him with two celebrations. We used those water balloons last summer and they were great.

Happy Birthday Levi! And, I can't believe how tall Charlotte is now. I can't remember how long I've been following you, but I know she was very little, and I think Levi was the only other sibling, and a tiny one at Time does fly, doesn't it?!?!
