This and That

I had a funny today. Ester tagged me in a Meme: "what picture I would use for my holy card, should I make it to saint, and of what cause(s) I wanted to be patroness."
Just as I thought: Well I can't scan an old picture, I take one of my messy desk and coffee cup and be patroness of over scheduled, highly caffeinated, techno-moms, in came Zoe. She had just dropped the small digital camera. I think my Guardian Angel is saving me from utter embarrasment!

In other news, we did visit my inlaws and the children they stole borrowed over the weekend. Leslie was brave enough to stay, I burned the top of my chest where I missed with the sunscreen, we saw fireworks: almost ion the beach but the threat of lightnight sent us to her back window. It was both my inlaws birthdays this week. We gave my FIL new BBQ tools with foldable handles like a swiss army knife. For MIL we had the local garden shop make her an herb garden in a terra cotta bowl-shaped pot.

Since then I've spent hours trying to promote our New England Catholic Homeschool Conference. We have a lot of work to do but have reached a wonderful arrangement with Seton. That makes me far more confident. Did you know there are over 20 yahoo groups for homeschooling Catholics in New England and New York! We have GOT to condense people.

What else? September's schedule needs to be prioritized. Its more than a little crazy. And last nigyht Jeff and I shared the wine my parents gave us for our anniversary: a 2006 Bella Sera Pino Grigio! It was lovely!

Well if I'm not listening to my angel -- my angel is willing to take out the proverbial 2 by 4!
