I love:

My hot rollers, especially when my ends need trimming and I can't find babysitting so I can go to the salon so my ends need a little help not looking so frazzled.

That the grass is turning green!

All the varieties of birds visiting my bird feeder.

Babies!  (No, I'm not having another baby, but someone I know is having two!)

Bare Minerals Make-up foundation.

My hologram eyes....they change colors on their own.  Really!  It depends on what I wear.

My sneaky red highlights.  Yes, deep down I'm a redhead.  Deep deep down.  I have natural red highlights in my hair.  They like to hide, but in the right light, particularly sunlight, they may shine through.

Homeschooling.  There are days I just don't want to do it.  There are times I just want to scream at the state's standards.  There are times I just want to send that fidgety little boy outside just to not hear him whine and complain about doing to work, but overall I LOVE homeschooling.

Bulb flowers.  I see them blooming in the grocery store floral departments and I just want to buy them all!

My Grandmother's house and my Aunt K's house.  Such peaceful homes.  Clean, tidy, beautifully decorated, uncluttered....ummmm....kind of the opposite of mine.

A Little Confession....


I am not good with children.

Ok, let me rephrase that.  I am not good with other people's children.  Never really have been.

I had the thought today that simply because I have mothered 4 children, it is assumed that one day I will take on a teaching role in children's church.  It is also assumed that I am good with children.  I must be to mother 4 children, after all.  Frankly, unless the Lord calls me to teach children's church, I'm not volunteering any time soon!

Sure, I've learned a few tricks of the trade during the 7 years I've been a mother so far, but I'm really not sure I can handle a classroom, playgroup, or other such entourage of children who are not my own...at least not without a helping hand...preferably from someone who's good with children.

Maybe I just need a little more practice.
