The Birthday of a Very Important Man

This was today's project. And what a project it was! My bookshelves get very unruly very quickly...and I haven't straightened this one for months!!

My impetus? I mean, other than the shelves spilling over and books lying in front of the bookshelves for lack of room. My keyboard didn't work. Nope. So I had an internet free day...until I figured out that I had plugged the keyboard into the wrong slot...then I took a picture of my bookshelf and came to say hi!


Today is the birthday of a wonderful leader, creative thinker, very brave, and an exceedingly handsome man. And I'm not talking about Abraham Lincoln, although it is his birthday too.

Nope, the man that I am thinking of has been my sweetheart for 13 years. He has stuck by me through thick and thin: my second child (then 3 years old) biting him as he held her in her carseat when he and I were courting, my third child (then 2 years old) peeing on his $500 Harman Carden speakers when we'd been married for only a couple of months, and me being ornery for those several years I was pregnant with his children (#4,5,6,& 7). The man is a saint! Happy Birthday, Steve! I love you more with every passing year!


Today is Matt's Blue & Gold Banquet for cub scouts, so my family & I are off to eat a supper that I didn't have to cook. See you tomorrow!
