a day late. We had surprise company this weekend--both of our expectant-mommy daughters and lots of grandchildren arrived, and we've been busy!
me tomorrow night. Or look for me on Facebook. The Papa and I are going to see Wicked
! Yes we are!
On Wednesday I fly away to the east coast for a week to have a nice visit with Annie, Caleb, Erin, Judah, and Savannah. Since they're now the only ones who can't easily get back and forth to see us, I'm going to them :-)
Finished One Thousand Gifts this week, and finished listening to The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks. Trying to decide which of my stack to start on next! So many books, so little time. I'm still working on two or three others...
Will someone please tell me where I can get a dishwasher that is NOT "Energy Star" qualified? I've had it with low-water, low-heat, low-noise, low-capacity, low-CLEANING dishwashers that take over two hours to not clean your dishes with non-phosphate detergent, only to require you to repeat it all again because you can only get half the dishes in and the ones you did get in are only half-clean. ENOUGH WITH GREEN ALREADY! I realize that if this post goes public I may be visited in the night by the Green Police, but if they carry me away then at least someone else will be washing my dishes.
Really, I'm so nauseated by the appliances and the light bulbs and the toilets and the "cleaning" supplies they're pushing on us that I've decided as a matter of principle I will not buy any product or service that advertises itself as "green" or "reducing carbon footprints." I like my footprints just fine and I'm fighting back with my pocketbook.
Molly makes GREAT cookies! Pass me another one.
Are you watching practically the whole Middle East come unhinged? Hey, when you have the Muslim Brotherhood call for the assassination of Qaddafi, it's a really scary world.
There is a fountain, filled with blood
Drawn from Immanuel's veins
And sinners plunged beneath that flood
Lose all their guilty stains.
Thank you, God.
Have a good (short!) week!
