so, i didnt make it to the pool. sniff. it's now pouring. which is nice, as the plants will be happy, only.... it's supposed to freeze tonight, so i really need it to stop raining so i can put a frost cloth over my pear tree (which is covered in blooms!), and put a light on it, too, if i want any chance of having pears this year!
cari, i know, it breaks my heart to hear the things adults say to kids. dont know if i'm being more sensitive than usual to it, as i'm realizing that i really internalized a lot of things that were said to me when i was a kid, and am still suffering from it..... hugs. if you can get FEs, you might try giving lucas some walnut. it seems to be really helpful for kids, to keep their energies protected from... shall we say... overbearing adults with crummy attitudes? ;-)
maia, any conversation! i can literally be sitting "on" the computer all day, and NO ONE will post at ALL. then, i'm off for one day, and ALL of you post 14 times. it used to happen to me with an old online group, too, although with that, it was mainly answerable to the fact they were all east coasters, and i was west coast. i know that's not the case here, although it does seem to be usually weekends. i tend to be offline on weekends.
aubergine & ktg, my ladies in purple! sitting here with my laptop on my favorite purple pillow..... i love the purple quilt idea, aubergine. lurve it. :-)
books~ just finished white queen (thornyhold before that).... now must read red queen (is that in paperback yet, anyone know?)....

dh is playing with ds in the living room, and dh just said: "with the blast shield down, how am i supposed to see? how am i supposed to play quidditch?" (who would win-- voldemort or vader-- is a popular conversation topic in my house lately, so you can see how the above conversation happened..... lol!)
i know there was more i wanted to reply to.... ah, well. :-)
