wednesday night lights and some minutia

Turns out Little League games are great girl bonding time. Our local team "blew it out the box" (as Randy Johnson would say, though I shouldn't even start talking about American Idol, traumatized as I am by Melinda's departure), winning their second of two games while we mothers chatted it up by the bleachers. Of course, we stopped to cheer when our boys were at bat.

Here are April's fingernails (the pink ones - mine are the plain Jane ones below hers) which I photographed before the game. Did I lie when I said they were glorious? I was hoping to get a picture of the opalescent tips she had the other day, but she'd already gotten them re-done. Because, like many women, she has her nails done on a regular basis. My nails, on the other hand, no longer look like they do in this picture, because I chew them to nubs on a regular basis. Hey, it's cheap maintenance.

My books arrived from Amazon a few days ago, all of which were recommended by another dear friend. I've started reading A Severe Mercy, which she tells me is going to be made into a movie.

Other than that, I got nuthin'.


  1. Yay--can't wait to see what you think of them! I need to read ASM again before the movie comes out. I read it five times in my 20s--I'm curious how it would be to read now that that I'm married and not so idealistic/romantic as I was then.

    You probably know this, but SID isn't the kind of book you read straight through--it's a daily devotional. And POPG is the kind of book you can read in one sitting or use it as a devotional.

    ...And that concludes today's edition of Lessons in Literacy, brought you to by the control freak pseudonymously known as Picholine ;)

  2. LOL. Control freaks are welcome here, P. I think I mentioned in one of my first blog posts that I briefly considered calling this blog "Controlling B*tch," but then I thought that might be a little TOO edgy.


    I'm really getting into ASM. I did think it was a little precious/melodramatic at first, but now that Pearl Harbor has happened, things are getting seriously interesting. Haven't started the others yet.
