On a positive note . . . "North Dakota's House of Representatives has passed a bill effectively outlawing abortion. The House voted 51-41 this afternoon to declare that a fertilized egg has all the rights of any person. That means a fetus could not be legally aborted without the procedure being considered murder." Praise the Lord.

My dd and my friend, Ruth, have decided to keep a blog diary of their sewing lessons. It is amazing how much fun they are having and the wonderful things they are creating! I couldn't be happier for Cherith - she is definitely in her element. We are so appreciative of Ruth and the time she is giving us. Check them out when you can!

Yes, it just keeps coming! My dh surprised me with flowers - lilies and roses! And a huge bag of Lindt truffles - ahh, chocolate.

I didn't want to believe it. I refused to believe it. But it is true. My favorite magazine for all these years . . . is no longer. Home Companion is unable to continue due to lack of advertisers. As Mary E. says "it's a vicious circle - housing is bad, companies can't advertise, magazines can't print." Soooo sad. I will hold onto my old copies even tighter! If the economy improves . . . Mary says Home Companion will be back . . . I hope so!!

Ring boxes. There are only two in my possession - but, I love them better than a blue Tiffany box. Dating them is a bit difficult, but I think my ring boxes are from the 1920's or 1930's. They are such sweet little plastic boxes. Can you imagine the memories these things carried for someone? Perfect to pull out for Valentine's Day.
