. . . because I seriously need to!
To begin with, my big sister is in Sicily! And she’s going to be there all summer! I seriously don’t know how I’m going to survive, but I guess I’ve gotten this far (exactly one week, to be precise), and she responds to my e-mails, because she’s awesomeness.
(Prepare for this post to be a lot of scattered randomness!)
Calling all you sweet Omaha people, I’m doing a fundraiser for our adoption! You can read about it on the family blog here! I’m selling made-from-scratch, chocolate chip scones. I’ve gotten rave reviews on them at every party and gathering I’ve made them for.
We’ve been listening to this song a lot lately:
“Raise your thoughts a little higher,
Use your words to inspire,
Joy will fall like rain,
When you speak life with the things you say”
Little Brother loves it. 🙂 We’ve been saying “speak life” instead of “speak nicely” or something like that, and it works well. Oh the magic of making something a song!
Plus, I had the best ever Middle Earth geek moment a few weeks ago, and I had to tell you all about it: I walked down to a playground in our neighborhood recently–because I have a “thing” with playgrounds–and wandered around and climbed on top of monkey-bars and walked on fence-rails. What big kids do at parks. It had rained the day before so there were some lovely puddles to splash in. I was just paddling around when I looked down and there, half-buried in the sand, at the bottom of a puddle, gleaming in the sunshine, was a ring. A ring. I just stared. Then poked it with my Aragorn boot. Then picked it up. It was silver–a little disappointing, but still cool. Though slightly creepy. I put it in my pocket and brought it home with me. 🙂
Happy Wednesday, folks! What have you been up to?
