Ob-la-di, ob-la-da life goes on brah!
La la how the life goes on

Lots of running around this week: hours and hours of paperwork & bureaucracy, lovely weather calling us to play outdoors, huge messy fun in the kitchen, a briefly sick mama, and lo, the week has sped by. Some of the highlights:

Bebe’s first hair cut: before

Tonight: sampling martinis & fondue with the ladies. Tomorrow (very early): off to spend a weekend with some college friends (and our very patient spouses) for an 11-hour, extended edition, Lord of the Rings movie marathon. Full-on geeky bliss.

And Monday!! Oh, it’s one of my favorite days of the year: Martin Luther King, Jr. National Day of Service. Thousands of commuity service projects going on simultaneously across the country, and the beginning the the Season of Peace. Looking for a service project to join? You can search the MLK Day website ( to see what’s going on in your area. Joy!

Have a lovely weekend, see you next week.

It’s amazing how grown-up they look after a hair cut, isn’t it! Bebe has such a great smile. I had to go to your project page on rav to see what yarn you’re using for the gorgeous shawl….I love those colors….and I added you to my friends.

Have a nice weekend!

Very cool about the National Day of Service.

Unfortunately, I don’t get that day off. Sigh.
