Finishing a book. I've been lacking lately.
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!
- "Into Battle"

Actually yesterday...my daughter turned 21! We had a small party for her on a cruise boat in NYC harbor. All the young people were special needs friends from school and camp. I've known most for over fifteen years. It was so heartening to see how they've grown up. All are responsible young adults going to college and/or working. They're creative (art, music, writing, cooking), funny, polite and a delight to be with. Truly inspiring how they've capitalized on their strengths to overcome their so-called disabilities.

I've been gone for a while now, but thank you Brenna! Just this Friday night, a very VERY good friend of mine came over with her 15-y-o daughter after Temple, and they took a look at the new wardrobe. Daughter said the most WONDERFUL thing:

"Mommy, can I go in and find out if Narnia is in there???"

Friend and daughter both, wonderful lovely, delightfully witty people. :D
"To be the queen, she agreed to be the widow!"

Love it! I remember reading the Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe and trying to walk through the wall in my closet. Didn't work, but man I miss my imagination!

Today is my birthday and it has been fantastic so far! One of the very few times in the last years I didn't wake up crying and wishing the day to be over!

We're moving house because DH wants to be able to do his veggie gardening from the back garden instead of having to tramp all the way to the allotment. We sold ours just before Christmas. Yay! Then the sale fell through last week - Oh no! But today we got another offer and it's a cast iron one from the local diocese, they want it to house a vicar. So yay!!!!
Only problem is that they are looking at a move in around a fortnight... :eek: :eek: :eek: But it's a good sort of problem.

Are always to be found between the hooves of horses
For never will cowards fall down there.'

Oh, EC! Yayyyy! And BOO. And yayy! And may I be a dorky American and say - "aww! a vicar in your house! yayy!"

Yes, even with Dibley, some of still think even the very word vicar simply must mean someone wee, just-right twee too, and absently adorable. I don't go in for cross-pond-al silliness much, but I do like my mental English cartoons.

And Python.

What was the topic again ... ?

*Sorry!* :p
