On another note, Happy Birthday to my wonderful mother-in-law! Have a wonderful day!

As I got out my camera last night, my mother-in-law told me that there should be no pictures taken because she didn't look very good. So, what do I do? I took a photo and have now posted it on my blog for the world to see. Here's what I have to say in my defense: She always looks great, whether she's in sweats or all dolled up.

I am so jealous of your book finds! I just bought a gazillion (well, perhaps not that many) books at my favourite thrift store. Most were for kids, so they'll be presents for my nieces and other young friends.
