roses are red. and pink.



Did you see these beautiful roses on Kevin Sharkey's blog? I can't wait for the day I can collect exotic roses and plant them all around my house! And then they will probably die! I have a black thumb but perhaps by then I'll be a better gardener. A girl can dream, and even still it won't stop me from planting those roses.

Do you find it sad that as soon as the holidays are over the whole of blogland pines for spring, even though spring is months away? We should find ways to make Jan/Feb/Mar more celebrated.

once i drove to a pool hall in a blizzard but it was closed because NJ was in a state of emergency

Ben's dream of raising a family of unassuming pool sharks has just been made possible by a generous donation from a nice family from our church.

We also have a fridge and a dart board so really all we need now is some beer for our fridge and we can finally open O'Tracy's Pub!

Just kidding. But maybe with some Sprite.

church is at 1 o'clock now so i have lots of time to dilly dally in the morning

And so I shall post.


I have another blog. Did you know that? Actually I have like 5 other blogs but I have this one blog where I was invited by my dear friend Melissa to meet all of her literary friends and discuss books, which we do, but also we discuss life in general.

It's awesome. Like, really awesome.

And recently we have discussed blogs and blogging and the lack of posting on up in here and I came to some great realizations.

FOR EXAMPLE:

-I need to change the name of my blog. I think it's giving me a blog identity crisis. Because if I don't blog about the children round my house then the post doesn't make sense with the "purpose" of the blog and then I feel less inclined to write about fashion. And sewing. And music. And other pretty things. And those things are important to me too and I don't get to discuss these things very often and I would like that.

-Other boring things too like I need to change my header in a very very big way but I'm working on that.

SO I might. MIGHT post more often. About really random stuff. But there's also a good chance I will still not post very often and I'm ok with that. Thanks to all of you who update so regularly because I do enjoy reading all of your posts.

That is all. Thanks for listening. Happy Sunday!

ps. I haven't written "o'clock" in ten thousand years and it's a good thing my dad is here visiting because I would have most definitely spelled it wrong. If it is, indeed, spelled right now, which I am not convinced that it is.
