Making me happy today:

  • Delaware, a song by Don Peris. The video is clips of home movies from amusement parks, trips to the lake, etc. It's very sweet. Home movies always make me do a weird hysterical laugh/cry thing.
  • Sound driver located! Music on computer now accessible!
  • Chicken enchiladas with green sauce for dinner. I have been such a Mexican food JUNKIE lately. Breakfast, lunch and dinner today were composed of black beans, chips, salsa, cheese, and chicken, in different combinations and with varying degrees of spice. It's a sickness.
  • Coke zero, also breakfast, lunch and dinner.
  • Jesus the Christ by James E. Talmage
  • Watching my boys hug and kiss pink balloons for Hannah before releasing them into an incredibly clear blue sky. A bittersweet goodbye.
  • The Office ( I know it's totally predictable by this point, but I still like the writing and some of the characters)
  • Leaf rubbings
  • Letting a friend talk me into a manicure and realizing (with some degree of relief/satisfaction) that I'm still not a manicure person.
  • Patty's wonderful news about her son. (She was awaiting the results of a test which determines autistic disorders. You can see a link to her blog at right----> It's called Pancakes Gone Awry)
  • Bend the Rules Sewing. And the return of my sewing machine from a friend. Perfect timing.
  • Freezer paper shirts, an occasional obsession of mine. The upswing of the obsession usually coincides with lots of birthday parties for my kids' friends and an unwillingness to spend $10 each on crappy plastic toys from Target. Not that I don't go the crappy-toys-from-Target route, I certainly do, but a handmade gift is so nice, don't you think? (I'm loathe to ask the same question of the recipients of these shirts).
  • Bulleted lists.

You are making me hungry for Mexican food!! And I am glad to know that I am not the only one who a) has a hysterical laugh/cry tic, b)does not at all like manicures, despite inistence by my sister that I should get them, and c) likes bulleted lists. You are the best!!!

By the way, Bil and I talked and he has agreed that i should come visit Houston early next year sometime. I know that coincides with Mindy's baby's arrival, etc. but hopefully you wouldn't mind a visit from me at some point in Feb. or March....It would be so much fun.

Lots of good reason to be happy!!

I ogt the Bend the Rules book a few weeks ago. So far, I've only made the bibs, but I am excited to try a lot more projects. I think next up is the turtle.
