Somehow the appliance spies informed our dryer that we were at Sears looking at a new dryer.  Heather wanted to get a new one, since this one doesn't have a low heat setting - but the dryer has worked fine for years. The next time we used our dryer, it refused to start a couple times, and then grudgingly gave in, but made more noise than it used to.  Jonathan and I took it apart on Saturday, cleaned out old gunk, oiled the bearings, put it back together, and it still sounded the same.  It just stopped working tonight.  I think it overheard the Sears salesperson call today to say that the dryer is ready for pickup.  The Calvettis are loaning us their mini-van on Sunday in order to bring it home.

Jon told me last night that our friend Lisa from church was coming at 10am and we needed to be prepared to go somewhere cool for many hours. (More)

Serina wrote a post on raw milk that I started to comment on, when I decided it deserved a whole post on my own blog. (More)

Ah, it has been nearly a month since I posted anything. So here's a quick rundown. The boys and I went on vacation without Daddy. We drove to Philly, taking 7 hours, stopping every hour, once on the side of the road, once at a rest stop and three times at exits. If ever you need to stop on the turnpike, try really hard to make it a rest stop. You have never seen such long exit ramps as when you have a toddler in the car who needs to go to the bathroom. (More)

Sunday, May 21st, on the way home from church, we saw what a gorgeous day it was and we wanted to go for a sail. We ate a quick lunch and then I took a nap while Jon and Jonathan prepared a picnic dinner and got the boat ready. (More)

Saturday, Jon bought me a beautiful little azalea bush which we put in a big pot.

Sunday morning, he served me breakfast in bed - pear slices arranged in a heart shape around scrambled eggs. (More)

On Sunday, I went to a baby shower and Jon and Jonathan went out to lunch with our pastoral intern. Then they took me home so I could get a nap, and headed out to the annual Texas Independence Day party at the Regans'. (TID is really in March, but the party was delayed.) (More)

We don't really know what happened, but we hadn't seen any robins at the nest for a while. Three weeks after Easter, I became suspicious, and now for sure these eggs won't hatch. We're going to clean up the whole window area and hopefully next year we will have successful robin hatching.

Our first attempt at keeping a live Christmas tree live was a dismal failure, for two main reasons. One, we didn't take it down until April or some other such long time. Two, I misunderstood the instructions about misting the tree. What you are supposed to do is mist the branches to keep them hydrated. However, I thought you were supposed to mist the rootball. So this poor tree never had enough water from the start. (More)

After two and a half years of sleeping in a family bed, it is surely ingrained in me. When our friends' daughter needed to spend the night with us when her baby brother was being born, I couldn't bear the thought of putting her in another room. (More)

Lo and behold, robins' eggs appeared in the nest this very Easter morning! There are three. Jon took a picture which will be up sometime...

Last night we had a spectacular and very close thunderstorm roll though. The lightning actually struck a transformer down the street, cutting our power at around 10:30. (More)
