Happy Fourth of July!




So, this is a bit belated, but I hope you enjoyed your holiday weekend (if you live in the US). My husband and I spent the weekend helping some friends move down to Texas where we used to live. It was fun to visit old friends, but it was quite a drive - 15 hours of driving each way! Whew! It's a good thing we love being in a car together and listening to books on CD. We listened to Tears of the Giraffe, which was wonderful, and we listened to Whiskers of Evil, which had an interesting plot, but the writing went off into needless tangents and should have been cut in many boring places. It also used Bible verses completely out of context, which annoys me. So I don't recommend the second book, but the first book is a great read.

Hello!

Nice sketches! I especially like the one on the top, for the expression and body language of the girl.

Hey, I've just been awarded the 'Brilliant Weblog' Award and I'd like to pass it on to you.

Details on my blog.

Cheers,
