Mind if I ramble for awhile?  Because I'm thinking of so many happy things at the moment - I wanted to share!
  • Ma and Pa are both down in Ca for the week - so I get to rule the insurgent kingdom singlehandedly in their absence.  Baking, sewing, napping, giggling, gardening, tidying, anointing bruises, watching movies (alright - a movie;) and the endless pondering of the question "What's for dinner?" has been my lot.  It's been a relaxing, productive week.
  • I solved the dinner puzzle this time by making a BakeOver - carrots, spinach, hamburger, garlic, and spices in a pan, an eggy batter poured over all, and the thing was done.  And I saw that it was good.
  • I have been living in my new home for over a week now!  It's been wonderful.  There's still so much to do to make it quite perfect, but I've been getting a little done every day.  My musical instruments are all displayed on the dresser, fresh flowers from my garden are on the little carved table my dad used to finger-paint on, and - this is SO EXCITING - I have a computer set up!  It's not quite running, but thanks to Aubrey's efforts, it should be soon.  And then. . . well, you'll see.  But it's going to be good. =D
  • Tasha and Alex came over this afternoon.  We went on a hike, threw daisies at each other (Aubrey ripped up an entire daisy bush and started sword fighting... things went fast after that;)  Tasha and I looked through my Great-Grandma's (G.G.) photo album.  Played badminton, then we all sat on my front porch and made some music.  It was so nice!
  • I love this Color Palette Generator!  It's just too fun.  Try it - it looks indispensable to graphic design! 
  • I made a vintage-pattern dress today.  It's green, with double-breasted brass snaps. And a lace-trimmed Armistice-style collar.  And a pleated skirt.  I think it's my favorite project ever.  
Pictures coming soon!
  • This Vintage Hanky Bunting is tooo sweet.  I want one of my own=)
  • And lastly, the thought that makes me most happy of all -
"Praise ye the LORD. Praise God in his sanctuary: praise him in the firmament of his power.  Praise him for his mighty acts: praise him according to his excellent greatness.  Praise him with the sound of the trumpet: praise him with the psaltery and harp.  Praise him with the timbrel and dance: praise him with stringed instruments and organs.  Praise him upon the loud cymbals: praise him upon the high sounding cymbals.  Let every thing that hath breath praise the LORD.  Praise ye the LORD."
-Psalms 150
Praise the Lord!
