It's a Beautiful Day...

 And I feel like posting a blog post!
aaaaand going on a walk,
cooking something out of nothing,
catching up on emails that have been patiently waiting for me,
playing Frisbee with Dad and the kids,
and Chess with Gabe,
shopping for a new lens,
organizing my brain,
and on
and on
and on

Right now, I'm working on the brain part!!! Top priority, right? I just started my own special "Brain Book".
I'm so excited!!!
 I mean, it IS so simple, but invaluable.
You just need a notebook + pen + string = all tied together.
You can keep your "brain" somewhere handy to jot down fleeting thoughts and to-dos. 
And get this: no one can steal your pen!!!!!! 
It will always be there for you.

This week we celebrated TWO birthdays.
Our "sweet, sweeeeet" Annie Liz.
And Ben, our "Lean, Mean, Fishing Machine".

Today, the three of us spent the afternoon together... like our usual weekly date. We started out at our historic Post Office (where our favorite Mrs. Newman was working. And we uh, mailed a package), drove a block down to the library (where I picked up my latest reading: "Seeds of Deception" - about genetically engineered foods) , and then bee-lined it for the park (where the two little girls I volunteered to push said to me, "I haven't seen you in a while. Or... have I EVER seen you?"). Next, we visited our favorite thrift shop (since our favorite ladies work on Wednesday)... where I found a poster of one of my favorite Renoir paintings. (Score!) All this before music lessons at 3:30. And our date was topped off with a birthday purchase of Annie's.... Popsicles.

I'd say it was a beautiful day. And it's not even over yet.
"But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us."

Ahhhh, sounds lovely! Thank you for doing all that, so I could take a nap & do a little weeding! You're my precious right-hand angel, you know, the one who sneaks in and does the dishes when nobody is looking! xoxo mom
