Ashley is teaching Martina how to crochet!
I have been working on my daycare room almost full time. It is really coming along now. Ashley helped take my large desk apart and carry out the smaller parts then Glen helped me get both large parts out and his desk. He and I put together the new, much smaller desk. I got a beautiful new rug. Today I am going couch shopping. There is a large used furniture store in Geneva. I am hoping I will find something there. I am very excited about starting! I have never felt this excited about starting in the fall before. I have always dreaded the first day of school because it meant the first day of work too. It feels so good to actually welcome going back to work.
I am so excited for my niece having her first baby. You know what that means don't you? Baby knitting! I have already begun. I love knitting baby things. so I hope Paula likes home made knitted things.
*I have added a link to my daughters new Photography blog, "Through my eyes", she would like people to visit and comment.
I finished reading "Driving with Dead People" it was good but I wouldn't really recommend it to many people. There was alot of swearing, and it was very depressing. I kept hoping her life would get better - it didn't, I thought her life couldn't possibly get any worse - it did. If you really want to read a depressing book about someones horrible life - read "The Glass Castle" that was a very similar book but much better! Now I am reading a series by Lori Wick. the first one was "Cassidy" the one I am reading now is "Sabrina". The next one comes out in Sept. They take place in 1880 in the Montana territory. I love historical novels! They are probably my favorite.
My new "top 5" is - The top five women I would most like to meet (dead or alive).
1. Mary Magdalene (woman who dropped everything to follow Jesus, was the first person to see Jesus after he rose from the dead)
2. Annie Sullivan ("the miracle worker" teacher to Helen Keller)
3. Susan Butcher (Iditarod racer, 4-time winner, finished in the top 5 - 12 times, died of cancer Aug. 5 2006)
4. Rachel Scdoris (legally blind Iditarod racer, she ran three times only finishing once (in 57th place) Wrote a book "No end in sight".)
5. Anne LaBastille - (Adirondack "Woods woman", went to the Adirondacks, built her own cabin, lived there by herself and wrote a large number of books about her experiences - 4 of them I own.)
Please tell me who are the top 5 woman you would like to meet and why.
