Musty Monday


I'm having a little trouble with motivation today. It's rainy outside, and I have no plans, so the only reason I really need to get my house clean is for my own personal satisfaction...and it's not working.

I would actually much rather be reading my book on the living room chair with some delicious pastries and big cup of real tea with cream and sugar. Unfortunately, I have no baked goods, real tea gives me heartburn and my children don't really like it when I sit and read and ignore them for hours on end.

Right now they are listening to the music from last year's VBS at Grandma Lilibeth's church. It's all very Jewish sounding music, and the kids love it. I get regular requests to "dance to Hallelujah!" which makes sense to me if it doesn't to anyone else.

As a side note, I highly recommend the books of Dorothy L. Sayers to anyone who likes a good British mystery with interesting personalities. I'm currently re-reading Gaudy Night and Busman's Honeymoon. Well, I've finished the first and started on the second. If you're new to Sayers I wouldn't recommend starting with those, as they are the last ones, so you won't know the characters as well as you'd want to yet.

The electricity is cutting on and off, so I'd better go.

Storms. Argh.

Hey, call me when you have a moment. My cell phone is close at hand. I have to fill you in on this adventurous familiy's calamitous distresses...well, I won't say it will be better than Sayer but I can promise that it will be better than no cookies and no tea. Ha ha.

I'm feeling like a little "dance to Hallelujah" right now myself. Would you send some my way? :)

Nope..not too far after all! I'm in Northwest Arkansas. My mother raised my 2 older sisters in Western Oklahoma...the Panhandle actually. Beaver. Heard of it? I drove through there once and was amazed at the amount of sand??? Crazy! But beautiful!
