It is rainy today. Rainy and hot, which means tornadoes -- decidedly NOT my favorite thing -- but we are all about accentuating the positive around here, so I thought I would share some good things instead.
School is out for the summer, which means Josie can attack Ellie's folder as she's been longing to do since she could crawl. Also, we have an extra 45 minutes in the morning. The difference is staggering and delightful.
My list today --is blissfully manageable. And it means the project of swapping winter and summer clothes will finally be complete. (PUPA, by the way, stands for pick up put away. We use it often. MBR is master bedroom shade. We have one shade off and one shade on, and I would like to stop feeling like a nursery rhyme.)
For all you Austen fans, my dear friend, author Marilyn Brant, is hosting AustenFest over at her place, in anticipation of the release of her novel, According To Jane. Like Marilyn herself, the book is funny and smart and an absolute delight. There will be giveaways and good conversation, so stop on by, even if you're not an Austen fan (though if you're not, I worry about you). Technically, the party doesn't start until Sunday, but you won't be disappointed if you go early.
And since that laundry won't wash itself, best I get started, hmn?
