It seems like I think of all kinds of things to blog about until I have time to sit at the computer and now...I've got nothing. But I have time, so there will be something posted anyway. Will it be interesting? Perhaps not. Oh well.
I just finished reading Pride and Prejudice and I have decided that reading books that I really like cannot be a daytime hobby for me. I ignore everything...laundry, cleaning, kids:) and just read and read. Well, you know, the kids can't REALLY be ignored so then I just feel frustrated because I would rather be reading. Does anyone else have this problem? And of course, after finishing the book, I want to watch the movies. Not just one, but the three versions I have in my house right now. I was amazed that the kids lasted as long as they did. Natalie kept asking who the grumpy man was...of course, it was Mr. Darcy:) They liked the dancing parts. I got halfway through the Kiera Knightly version today. The rest will have to wait!
I also spent some time outside today. Have you ever gotten really into a project that, in the end, no one will ever see and it was way too much work? That was me in the backyard today. We have this huge, weed-ridden spot right outside our back door and I decided to clean it out. A ton of work (I didn't even finish it) and I don't know what I will do to keep all the weeds from coming back. I would love to make a beautiful flower garden, but I am sooo bad at growing things. So I may just put some big rocks in there:) You know, pretty rocks!
