Today I got the sweetest little early Christmas/Birthday present! Here she is... She's Crested Poodle. (Mostly Poodle) My family completely surprised me and brought her home!! I'm so excited!!!

I've been trying to come up with a name for her and I thought I would ask you all for help.... What do you think???

Here's the ideas I have so far

  • Aravis (From C.S. Lewis' Horse and His Boy)
  • Summer
  • Bella (From Charles Dicken's Our Mutual Friend)
  • Hero (From Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing)
  • I'm open to other ideas... and I'm taking votes!

All American Family

My family was gracious and patient enough to indulge my whim to take this picture.... even though they all REALLY wanted to dig into the turkey!!!

Give Thanks

So how can I thank you? What can I bring?
What can these poor hands lay at the feet of the king?
I’ll sing you a love song it’s all that I have
To tell you I’m grateful for holding my life in your hands

Celine dion and Josh groban live - the prayer

I found this the other night and have been enjoying listening to it since. The harmonies are (As Phronsie Pepper would say)Bee-yoo-ti-ful! Some people like the Charlotte Church/Groban version of this song better, but I enjoy the contrast between Celine's voice and Groban's. Plus, as an added bonus, you can watch Celine Dion's "Barbie" arms... :-)

Well, I am now a business owner. Sort of....

In an attempt to make a little extra money, I've opened a shop on Etsy. I like to crochet scarves, so I thought I'd try that. Check out my shop and tell me what you think! I had two scarves on there but one sold already... I'm working on more now... but, it's a start!

Big Weekend Plans

It's another one of my "big weekends" coming up. For me, a big weekend is when I don't really have much planned, so I fill up all my projected time with projects. So many projects that I will never get them all done... here they are
  • Read two novels
  • Crochet 3 scarves
  • make pancakes
  • finish painting my nightstand
  • sort through all my summer clothes
  • watch Daniel Deronda
  • Vaccuum
  • Sleep
  • start packing for Thanksgiving trip
  • Write

Apple Picking

We like to go to orchard about 50 miles north of us... and "pick" apples. Should we get Jonamacs? Or Honeycrisp? Or both????

Our dear, darling baby....

The other day I called home in the middle of the day to talk to mom.
Mom answered the phone: "Hi Honey."
Sarah yells: "Hi Becca!"
I was astonished. "Mom, how does she know it's me?"
Mom said: "I have no idea."

So, then last night we were talking about it and Katie had this brilliant idea.
"Maybe Mom only calls you 'honey' so that's why Sarah knew it was you. Stephanie, what does Mom call you?"
Stephanie: "Sweetheart."
Katie: "See? She only calls Rebecca 'honey'. I know how to prove it. Sarah, where is 'honey'?"
Sarah immediately pointed to herself and said: "Me."
We thought this was hilarious and so Katie continued to ask her: "Where is 'sweetheart'?"
Again, Sarah points to herself: "Me"
Katie tried one more: "Where is 'dear'?"
Sarah pointed to herself a third time, then changed her mind and pointed behind her at the man on the couch: "Daddy"

Here it is lit up... I just couldn't resist putting some twinkle lights around it.

Also, here's a shot of my bedroom colors...
