old: favorites


This photo was taken when my sister-in-law was visiting with her family from sunny CA. I love the gentle feeling of this photo. I love the little Scandinavian heads. I love all of the girls gathered together on our big green sofa reading together.

I bought myself a "new" car. It's a 1987 Volvo wagon! I lovelovelove it. It runs really well, is in great shape (what's a few wrinkles and age spots when you are THIS old?), and it has really low mileage. I paid almost nothing for it, and I suspect that I will have to put a little more into it - new tires, new fluids and filters - but I love it. The Littles are already calling it "Mom's car." Daddyman calls it the Battlestar Galactica

Daddyman says that I am seriously channeling the '70's thing. He may be right...

Battlestar Galactica! I love it! If you are called while driving (at a stop light, of course) you can answer with "Galactica Actual'. I always wanted to do that.
