    A Link Worthy of a Post

    A friend of mine emailed this to me today. It's a great resource for some Orthodox prayers...there are a few I have never seen before, and some that are familiar. I was most surprised to see almost the entire Lenten Triodion! I will definitely use the page and hope you can benefit from it, too. Just thought I'd share :)

    18 Skirts

    There's a new blogger on the loose! My friend, Michele, has joined the fray. She's witty and purple and will, no doubt, have great things to share. Go check it out...18 Skirts.

    Today Basil and I were drawing and he asked me to draw him a monkey...well, an "ooh-ooh aah-ahh" really. I am fairly competent at drawing most things, albeit crudely; but I could not for the life of me draw that monkey! The body was fine but the poor things face was so pathetic.

    Sorry Basil, Mommy needs to practice her monkeys.

    Late Winter Cleaning

    You'd think the fresh spring weather would get me outside...romping the hills or at least the park (well I have done lots of that lately). But no...what does it make me feel like doing? Cleaning! Organizing! Nesting! So, that's what I've been up to...trying to rearrange the gobs of stuff we have to make it more manageable and orderly.

    I never used to be much for keeping my things orderly...my room at my parents was always a mess...and my closet, whew! Then I got married and realized what a difference it makes. For instance, life is much simpler when your spices are alphabetized. Call me crazy or obsessive compulsive but I don't have to fumble through them any more. Or take the closet. Why do I need all of my sweaters out, hanging up in the heat of summer? My new-found answer...rotate. Put them away in an easy to reach box until it's cold again...leaving a few out just in case.

    Of course this all takes time and discipline...but in the long run, it makes daily living go more smoothly for the whole family.

    I think there is a lot to be said for orderliness. Not that things have to be spotless and perfect...but just well-kept and cared for. This is definitly a learned thing for me, and something I have to force myself to actually do. But, I 've found that as with all other struggles, half the battle is in trying and that if I just start a task that may seem daunting (like the spare bedroom), it eventually gets done.

    So, I guess I should get off this thing and do some of this tidying up I've been blabbing about.

    p.s. Please don't tell my parents about this post...they'll think all of those years of pestering me have finally come to something!

    Happy Groundhog Day

    "If the sun shines on Groundhog Day;
    Half the fuel and half the hay." Posted by Hello

    While I've never been into the holiday much...I do like the movie with Bill Murray and those little guys are pretty cool looking. However, I found this webpage that added a bit of depth to the whole thing. Happy day anyway.
