Also, my Victoria magazine came today - ah, one of life's pleasures! Great interview with Jan Karon who told about writing this profound quote on her wall:

AAARGH! and all of that. I say on occasion that I would like to be an interior decorator when I grow up, but I am cured now. No more of that boy. We were going to do this simple update of two bathrooms, not 3, just two. Just replace the countertops & sink downstairs and the same up with the additional floor and tub. No biggie. HA. I laugh at myself. So, in the beginning, I was giddy with excitement, shopping for tile - so much fun! Well, weeks later, it ain't so much. The second guy came to give his quote and input for the work, and he wants me to take back all my thought out purchases and start over. Hmmm.
The greenness of spring is a wonder to behold. We thoroughly enjoy our screened-in porch this time of year and in the fall. We have to wait until the pollen dies down but then - it is fabulous! Each day the view is a darker, richer green - a new picture all the time. The Lord is so good - how about His giving us such a massive range of greens and not just two or three? How about Him?
I rarely go to the movie theater - one reason being I am cheap - another being I don't care for most of the films being produced today. We went to see Expelled last Friday and were 3 of the about 20 in the audience. Which is a shame. This film is like a documentary that states scientists today are being punished for even mentioning an Intelligent Design theory of creation. I don't know how biased/stretched this fact is, or if there is more to the story - but the blatant anger and hatred toward Christians by the non-ID believing scientists was a bit eye-opening. That part alone gave me enough to consider. I hope many more homeschoolers and Christians will get out to see this film - it is well worth your time.

Am I pretty or what? Like I told the magic blog-maker Darcy, I feel like a 5-year-old in a fancy new dress just full of myself - smiling and twirling around feeling so happy! Hey everyone, LOOK AT ME!
OK, to celebrate this pretty feeling I am giving away a pretty. This twinkly little bead fan pull will make you smile when you turn on the light - my dd will draw a number from the comments on this post - one week from today! Let's celebrate!

update 4/17: My friend asked who the baby was - I bought an old frame on Ebay that had several pictures of this sweet baby - no name, but obviously much loved.
