I'm using the font called "Georgia" in honor of my upcoming vacation. Yes! We're outta here Saturday morning for a much-needed, greatly-deserved time off the rat race treadmill! We'll be visiting loved ones, then heading out with them for some touristy stuff - headed for the coast and St. Simons Island. I mentioned before that I had years ago read many Eugenia Price books. She fell in love with the island and left her home in Chicago to spend the rest of her long life there. In particular, the first trilogy she wrote was set there and was about the island and its residents. She used actual names, and these people are buried there on the island. The lighthouse was built not long after the Revolutionary War. Now, I've been to England and seen REALLY old stuff, but I'm really looking forward to seeing something that old here in the comparatively young USA.
AND - I get to have a Coke (since I don't do coffee) with Brenda. I'm pumped about that - she was one of the first bloggers I met and joined in prayer for my prodigal, who was returning home.
We'll be gone until Tuesday, May 1. I'm hoping to post Part VII tomorrow, and thinking maybe my obsessive self can find some way to read, if not write, while I'm gone.
After a bit of a hiatus, Kristen is back in true American Idol critiquing form. Check it out. You won't be disappointed. Care Bear has a new post up, with more art. You can compare it with the picture below on Wordless Wednesday, which was taken when she was a little over 3. She's now 4 1/2, and is quite the little artist. I'm sorry it's on red paper, because it's hard to see the detail.
I am going to write about Feisty soon. She's become my afternoon pal and companion, and has really grown up since she has some time alone without her dominant older siblings. What fun!
See ya later. Hopefully tomorrow.
