Sunday, November 23

i ran out of orange thread

so i can't finish my blankets.

and i just discovered the dishtowels i wanted to embroider on are crappy.

guess everything left on my list is on hold, so i spent a ridiculous amount of time looking at blogs for the first time in a long time last night.  i think i liked not getting sucked into the computer for hours at a time the last week and i am thinking about only looking at other blogs once a week. which probably won't happen, i just really like the thought of being more productive during the day that sitting at the computer. 

in other news, it's raining.  a lot.  and i have to admit that the rain is fun:
but after being stuck inside with the girls all day yesterday and seeing the obscene amount of television velzy is capable of watching, i am sure i would have gone crazy if we were in virginia this winter. if she is not outside all she wants to do is watch t.v. and i hate it.

but i don't hate this little beauty that was waiting for us last sunday when we came home from church.  it just doesn't get old- catching caterpillars and letting them go butterflies.

I am totally the same way about getting on the computer. If it happens that I haven't checked blogs or e-mail in a while-I will spend so much time catching up! Like right now. My eyes are starting to water. I am stuck watching the AMA awards because Felicity slobbered too much on the remote and it no longer works and I am too lazy with the computer on my lap to get up and turn it off. I love the rain pictures. Your girls are darling.

i might have to ask if your pregnant? all this nap, and sick talk...4 girls, did i miss a post, which is possible because i haven't looked at blogs in months. However you do have the best pics. is it your camera or are you just really good at taking pics?? Aloha! go jump in the water for me, oh hawaiian waters. how i miss them

love the rain pictures! we are actually really enjoying the lack of rain that we are having this winter! i'm sure we will long for rain at some point again, but i'm guessing that it won't be for awhile!

i'm glad to have you back blogging again!

No ashley, I like your blog. I love your pic's of the girls and your crafts. You are too nice. Thanks for the compliment. I wish I was is Hawaii in the rain. CA sucks, it is too warm to be winter! But it seems to be cooling off. Also when are you guys heading back here?

i like the the crispness of these photos- all the images are sharp like real life but not like harsh sharp. just clean. i like them.

Sometimes it seems like the computer just sucks your time away. It is fun to see what others are up to though. I guess it saves you time on the phone! That was so sweet of Luke to take over for you. What a stud!
