What We've Been Doing Around Here

I haven't been posting as much as I should, because it's been a little crazy around here. I'll share a little photo album of what we've been up to. It's not the complete docket, but it will give you a taste of life around this little patch of the Little Blue State. I don't have pictures of Nashy and Witter, because they are away at school, working hard to finish the semester. Witter is rehearsing for juries, and the sound of French and Italian art songs and arias don't photograph very well. Neither do Nashy's activities;she's finishing her Senior Thesis and final classes before she graduates from BMC on May 18. Oh, and interviewing for jobs for next year.

Shiny has been very creative in the last few weeks. She played Poppy in Noises Off, put up her art installation, sang Stormy Weather with the school jazz band, and went to the prom before finally collapsing in a heap of sleepy girlness on Saturday afternoon. Nature Boy, Garden Girl and I have been getting ready for Corporate City Garden Day, which benefits a local children's charity. Oh, and Garden Girl got some bees! I hope we'll have some honey in the fall.
Here are the photos --

Wow, the house looks great! Did you flip-flop the dining room and the living room? I remember how your mom changed things around at your house and how I wanted them back the other way...as if I lived there, too!!

OH DRAT! The net effect of all those wonderful pictures is to make me aware that I miss you rather alot...The house is stunning - but looks as if it ought to be situated in Derbyshire UK, which would be much easier in terms of seeing you whenever the mood took me.
Glad busyness has been happy and productive, though :-) xxx
