I don’t often check my stats page, but I do always notice that I get a bunch of traffic due to posts on Ethiopian Idol and the date in Ethiopia. Here’s the official Ethiopian Idol site.
If you are one of these people, I have another blog in which I babble on about my son adopted from Ethiopia:  Meet Dawit.

For the creepo who found my site through searching “smell little girls”…ewwww.  Go away.


Happy Birthday to me!

July 23, 2007

It’s nice when your birthday falls on a Sunday, it turns into more of a birthday weekend.  Went out to dinner Friday with John, dinner and margaritas with friends Saturday night, and a day picking blueberries and  hanging out with the family today.  My mantel is covered with sweet birthday cards and some beautiful flowers from a neighbor.

Been doing lots of lazy, fun summertime stuff–kiddie pool, slip-n-slide, day trips to the Cape and Block Island, and lots of playdates.

Our town is great for picking up cast-offs on the curb…today we found an old oak barrel that will translate nicely into a planter on our deck:

Also started pressing flowers and collecting containers for some fall/winter craft projects.  Never too early to start planning…
