Window crayons, I love you.
Today was a good day. I bonded with two different sets of friends over the weekend, and didn't manage to offend or alienate either one (like that could happen--it can't ever be said that I'm modest about my awesome friends); though a stupid cell phone issue mangled my attempt to comfort one and made it a disaster! The cell phone spread out the multitudes of texts I had sent within a couple of hours over the course of three days, and the poor thing wanted to rest and had no idea why I kept. on. texting. her.
Also, we've launched the Harry Potter book club today over at Jenna's. I really encourage anyone with a major to mild interest in Harry Potter to join us. You don't have to read the books to enjoy the discussion. The three hostesses include a long-time Harry Potter veteran, a reader who didn't like it, and me, the one who never got past libro uno. We're all friends, and we're all Catholic. It should be a blast. Reading Jenna's inaugural post has got me really excited for the project. Her enthusiasm is contagious, and her eloquence seals the deal. Head over to Spinning Straw into Gold to snag a button. There will be recipes. . . c;
Finished off the evening with some homemade soup (three weeks from the end of Lent has made my peace with soup) and a slumber party with my little sister and her friend. We played Apples to Apples, and my neighbor knocked on the door and joked, "Ya'll are being too loud!" but when I started to apologize, she grinned and offered us a plate of cupcakes--confetti batter with vanilla icing!
Hope you had a good Monday!
