What's Happening Right Now?

 My mom is at the store, and most of the rest the family is scattered at various places other that here at home, so I here with my sister who is currently almost eight and entertaining herself by singing number 611 in the Faith and Praise hymnbook. Seated on a high stool she sings a solo of Heavenly Sunlight. I am about to attempt to read a section on deciduous trees in my Horticulture book while the little messer-upper (aka Caleb, who is 1) happily stands on the dishwasher door and unloads the dishwasher, blue cup in hand. 
But I think my mom is home maybe I will learn a little about deciduous trees. :)

Combine milk and one cup of chocolate chips. Melt until smooth.
Pour melted mixture over crust. Sprinkle with remaining chocolate chips.

The Letters-No. 4

 This was by my friend, to me. :) She used tea to stain the envelope a vintage brown, and then added the flowers. She printed the flower template off Martha Stewart, and then used a crafting knife to cut out the flowers by hand. I heard that she gave me the gift of time in making this letter. :) 
Friends, friends, don't you love them?

Enjoy the final issue!

Musical Happiness

"A violinist should always be happy when he is playing. If he is playing well, he should be happy that he is playing well. If he is not playing well, then he should be happy because it will soon be over." 
-Jascha Heifetz-

Smiles. I like this quote.

This is one of the coolest websites I have ever seen. Every day this website has one crafty item for sale. The things they sell are fun, interesting, pretty, and a good deal. :) Yeah, pretty awesome.
