I am almost finished reading the John Adams biography. I have loved every single minute of it! I can't convey how captivating and enjoyable this book has been, not a dry, yawn inducing biography at all. To think about that period in our country's history, all the men that came together at just the perfect time to declare our independence and then work to create our government, is inspiring. I also love the correspondence documented between John and Abigail and many other key historical figures. Letter writing seems to be sadly becoming a lost art. The fact that we watched the HBO miniseries (through Netflix) last year may have helped too. In a weak moment I ordered the series from Amazon because it truly is something we could watch again and again.
I am hooked on listening to Pandora radio through our docking station speakers. Big dose of happy there. Speaking of favorite apps, I am also addicted to the white noise app. for sleeping. How did I manage before?
Once again, I'm trying something new. This time, it's Shakeology, a meal replacement or supplement type shake. I'm using it for my breakfast. I like the taste and the fact that I'm getting nutrients I'm sure are sorely lacking in my diet. We'll see, I'll keep you posted.
In the spirit of full disclosure, I must confess I bought Oreos yesterday. Obviously I'm conflicted about this health kick.
I will also confess I am a lazy shower cleaner, waiting until it's completely disgusting before attacking. I know. Are we still friends? I think I hated cleaning it because I'd get water and cleaner everywhere, even bleaching out spots on my clothes. Yuck. The other day I had a shower epiphany. Clean the shower while I'm in the shower, then take my shower. Get it? Y'all, I've been reformed. Why didn't I think of that before?
Annelise is really getting into Legos. Can you hear my happy dance from here? This little RV camper has been on our counter/bar for over a week, but I'm okay with that because she hops up onto the bar stools every single day to play/re-build. I don't think she's ready for the giganto kits yet (neither are we!), but the moderately sized ones are good. I like the City line because it's not too specialized, maybe inviting more general creative play. Which Lego themes do your kids like? Any tips on finding good deals on them?
On a purely superficial note, I must rave about my new purse. I fell head over heels at TJ Maxx a couple of weeks ago and could not resist. I love the style, size, and punchy but still neutral-ish color. Oh and if you could only touch it, it's like butter I tell you, butter. Well, okay, maybe not butter per se, but it's dreamy soft.
Must share Annelise's latest art. I think it's a rodeo, with fireworks. And butterflies.
