My mom told me that she started this blog. I'm not sure what that is, but she is doing some laundry right now, so I thought I'd drop in to say hi.
She took this picture of me while I was practicing my yoga. I'm working on my lotus pose, but I think I'm a bit off center.
It was the ants fault. I'll keep practicing my concentration.
Well, that's all for now. I'm going to play in the yard. My dad just got home, so maybe he will throw me some sticks and then I will eat them.

Title: The Friday Night Knitting Club
Author: Kate Jacobs
Pros: chick lit while dealing with real interpersonal dynamics (illness, interracial families, reconciling with estranged friends), characters seemed very believable
Cons: no patterns (save a garter scarf), predictable in parts
Favorite parts: James' mother telling him that he hand picked which of her rules to follow, using obedience as an excuse for his behavior toward Georgia; Dakota's baking, Georgia's entrepreneurship and Anita's working all ignored the stereotypical rolls of child, business owner, senior citizen

I'm off Thursday and Friday. Perhaps there will playing in the yard and progress on the house. I'll let y'all know later.

My mother keeps a journal every year. In it she records the minutia daily life. What I had for dinner before my first day of school (fried chicken and mashed potatoes) or what I did for my 11th birthday (a scavenger hunt for 11 prizes that ended at Vulcan Park). I love it, but am totally unable (read no discipline) to do it myself.
Instead, I will try to keep this blog. I won't bore you with what's for dinner (unless its really cool), but I'll chronicle some of my minutia (crafts, dogs, home renovations, etc).Just to start out, here's a picture of the sunset from the back patio at our house. I took it during February at the Superbowl party.
