Internet, books and other things!
I am so excited to finally have my internet working again. A super nice technician came over this morning and spent like 4 hours working on my telephone line etc. Crazy! Now I can log on whenever I want. For the past week I have been randomly looking at my modem and if the Internet light suddenly goes on, I rush to the computer and log on and stay on until it quits again. Pathetic, no? Having a forced vacation from the internet did have it's benefits. I got a lot of pages in my art journal completed. Suzanne, in answer to your last comment, I am loving the class too. And I will try the red velvet cupcakes for sure (only 3 sleeps left!). I also read an entire book on Sunday. For some reason I'm on a Nicholas Sparks kick. After seeing Dear John, I decided to read "One Last Song". I want to see the movie but the book is usually better. I have to admit it was good. I feel weird admitting that I read books by Nicholas Sparks and enjoy them. Sometimes, I just need a break from the heavy stuff. Surprisingly, I cried for the last few chapters of this book. It was sad and hit a little too close to home. Now I am reading ``Travelling with Pomegranates`` by Sue Monk Kidd and her daughter Ann. So far it`s really good. I liked her other books too. Especially this one.
And in totally unrelated news, I saw these today and think I have to get one (the toy, not the dog) for Ruby:
Go here to get one (it`s a ball with a mustache on the end)
