Bits and Pieces of Our Days

Betsy is done with a horrible rite of passage: she took the ACT yesterday!

She is every synonym of happy: blissful, blithe, can't complain, captivated, cheerful, chipper, chirpy, content, convivial, delighted, ecstatic, elated, exultant, flying high, gleeful, gratified, jolly, joyous, jubilant, laughing, light, merry, mirthful, on cloud nine, overjoyed, peaceful, peppy, perky, pleased, sparkling, sunny, thrilled, tickled pink, upbeat, walking on air.

Yeah. She's good.


In case you're not on Facebook or Twitter, or in case you ignore me on Facebook or Twitter, or in case you don't care and now feel cornered because I'm telling you anyway (my apologies), I'm painting my kitchen. Yellow. It will happen slowly over the summer. Very slowly, because that's how I paint, and I'm still trying to decide how much blue or white to throw into the mix, but every time I walk in and see these yellow cupboards, I feel happy.

Yeah. I'm easily pleased.


"Oh, no! I have to water my worms!"

That's what Ramona said last night, thanks to a summer library program. They played with mud, made an earthworm home in a water bottle, (Atticus keeps telling her he'll steal those worms for his garden), drew and decorated a mural (Ramona handled the prairie dogs), and sang Dirt Made My Lunch for library patrons.

I hope we didn't kill the worms. If they're anything like houseplants in my hands ....

Yeah. They're goners.


In closing:

Yeah. This will be Heaven.

Oh, my GOODNESS your cabinets are beee-YOU-tiful. I could be easily pleased with that color, too.

Possibly without worms, though.

I need to look up the song Worms Made My Lunch. One of my nephews in particular is Mr. Bug, and he'd be all over that.

Yes, Tanita, the kitchen is far more pleasant sans worms. :)

Here's another link for the song from the Banana Slug String Band:
