8.) Five things I am loving this month: Daylight Savings Time, warmer weather, the girls getting excited about gardening, Bear getting her cast off.

9) A goal I had for this month: re-paint the living room; make this cute front door hanging - accomplished neither.

10) This month I looked forward to: Visiting the fam. for rescheduled birthday celebrations

11) Something I want to remember about this month:  the birth of our new nephew, Angel; Bear getting a cast on her arm, and getting it taken off again.

12) A photo I took this month:


  1. What did you think of the O'Reilly book?

    1. I thought it was pretty accurate, and interesting. It had the sense of strident drama that I'd expect from a pundit (I listened to it on audio - read by the author). I think I came across a few factual errors, but I also learned a few new things that are probably accurate.

  2. I'm a huge Abe-o-phile, but I've avoided this book because, well, like you said, O'Reilly can be over the top. But I think I'll give it a try, now that you went there first. And that door hanging is adorable, so I hope you get to it and love it.
