Some visual interest. Though this will never be a decorating blog, or an organizing blog, sometimes, I see real beauty in my home.
--- 2 ---Last night for dinner, we had meatball sandwiches and hot dogs and sweet potato fries.And a salad. And the leftover cup of chili on the hot dogs. Go ahead and judge.
I read Megan Whalen Turner's The Thief. I got nervous around page 65/66, when one character asks another, "...do they really believe that?" referring to a creation story. Another character responds,
"...No, they don't believe that,...It's just religion. They like to go up to the temple on feast days and pretend that there is some god who wants worthless sacrificial bits of a cow, and people get to eat the rest. It's just an excuse to kill a cow."
But I shouldn't have been nervous. Those characters are in for a rude awakening.
The series is fascinating. Now you know why we had hot dogs for dinner last night.
Another pretty shot.
I got this wreath at Target. I've been looking for things that will stand out against the brown.
And he works on this ongoing project.I've been watching it during "Laundry Folding Time," this week, but it's very difficult to keep folding, what with all the gorgeous footage and title screens and art. Lots of beautiful art. Makes me want to do my Rome semester all over again. Caravaggio. sigh.
--- 5 ---Yesterday, Baby J and I went to Babies and Books class at the library. For 30 minutes, we listen to stories, sing songs, clap our hands and play with shaker eggs. Baby J was there for all of five minutes, when she leaned over and yelled very loudly, "BEH!" in the neighboring baby's face. This caused screams followed by tears on the part of the other baby, and smiles and jazz hands on behalf of Baby J. I fear she may be a bully.
She's figuring out the whole crawling thing. She gets stuck under things and gets angry. Yesterday, she got her head stuck under the couch. I should have taken a picture of that.
--- 6 ---Regarding Lucy. She did get a part in the play. A few smaller parts, that may or may not include solo song lines, and she gets to dance. She is a Napkin, in one song, which is wierd because Susan is also a Napkin in her school's production of Beauty and the Beast. I guess my girls are Napkin people. Napkins get to dance a lot too.
Also, regarding Lucy, we are hosting her entire class for a Half Birthday Ice Skating Party. I need prayers that we will have ice, and again, that there are no injuries.I would never have dreamed of hosting a boy/girl party for Peter or Susan. Their classes were very different. Lucy is lucky that way. All the boys and girls are so nice and well-adjusted, with parents who care. I'm actually looking forward to this party.
