"It's been many years since I had such an exemplary vegetable."

According to my little bloggy schedule - which is supposed to keep me on topic and more organized - today I get to write whatever I want. So you're welcome. *evil chuckle*

life right now: just stepped off the treadmill for a little while. the craziness that was NYC is just settling down, and i was getting back in the groove of work and chores and chauffeuring again when we had the epic snow day and lost power. so that shook things up again. but such is life, and i guess "normal" is relative, si o no? i've played piano in church for the past three weeks, and have one more to go before i'm off for a little while. also rehearsals  for annie have started up - i'm single cast as sophie (hooverville) and cecile (housemaid). super cool. especially 'cause both roles are actual roles on broadway. and i'm single cast. good times comin'.

coming up: spring break from preschool first week of april. still don't know what i want to do…maybe drive somewhere for a spontaneous visit? any of you all free within a six hour radius? *grin* my violin teacher moving away *crying* at least we can Skype lessons. no joke. ellerslie prep is gearing up. i should probably start reading the scottish chiefs…it's recommended reading and weighs about ten pounds. also been shopping for summer clothes that will fit dress code. not too difficult, but requires thought.

in other news: saw Mr. Smith Goes to Washington for the first time last night (thanks Dad!). just as relevant now as it was in the 30s. if you haven't seen it, go watch it. and if you love Newsies, go watch it, and you'll be singing "once and for all" during the filibuster part when the little boy scouts are printing the paper on the "one press [Taylor] doesn't control". Anyway. Great film. Jimmy Stewart in one of his best roles. we've also been re-watching pride and prejudice. it's been too long. and it's just as good, if not better, than i ever remembered it to be.

this week also marks "coming home day" for two dear little might-as-well-be-siblings friends of mine from church. Three years ago Wednesday! WOW. It's been an infinite blessing getting to know these two precious children, so thankful. Hugs and kisses - love you both! *mwah*
so that's life for me right now, and i'll leave you with those cute faces.  *grin*

For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, “Abba! Father!” ~ Romans 8:15
In love he predestined us for adoption as sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will, to the praise of his glorious grace, with which he has blessed us in the Beloved. ~ Ephesians 1:4-6
