After not posting for an entire week, REALLY, I'm posting more flower pics. Bleeding hearts, part of ONE iris patch, lilies of the valley, and an Aggie iris. There was a yellow and white one too, mom, but the picture was unjust.
So for the big news: Jensey had a boy May 11 and his name is Carter (which I adore)! Can't wait to see him in a couple of weeks. Cute as a button, huh (we Do share genetic material after all)? In other, less life changing news, Auden's last day of preschool was today. Tuesday when I dropped him off, I noticed the sea of gift bags for the three teachers and realized that I had 48 hours to step up. Not so easy when our day was spoken for yesterday and this morning as well. But we did get to a store and Auden picked out faux diamond rings- giant, $2.50- serious bling rings for them. That's my boy, he already knows jewelry is the straightest path to a woman's heart (and just for fun, we paired them with a Cold Stone gift card). So our Tuesday and Thursday afternoons are wide open now. What else?
I finished Three Cups of Tea and passionately recommend it. I want to run away to Pakistan or any of the stans right now to build schools for girls. Seriously. Being as how that's not entirely practical, I Truly would like to organize a fund raiser. You MUST read this book. Put whatever you're doing aside, run to the local bookstore to fetch it, and don't resume normal activities until you're ready to run off to central Asia with me. And then, read A Thousand Splendid Suns (by the Kite Runner author). I really liked it too. Thankfully, it didn't make me feel as if I had to make a beeline for Afghanistan. I couldn't put it down which is saying something these days (to clarify, These Days books compete with yarn and fabric and little boys and yard work and housework and yarn and little boys). NOW, I'm a bit into the Kite Runner- Cori lent me her library copy. I'll keep you posted. By the way, I should hedge a little. Three Cups was decently written, but it's not a masterpiece. Its worth lies entirely in its message. AND My qualm with A Thousand Splendid Suns is that it seemed to wrap up too nicely at the end. Too pat. Well, dear family and friends, it's nice to be back to the blog, and on that note, I'll head for bed. Love, Sara
