The Leo Curse, Part Deux

A few weeks ago I wrote about our rolltop desk fiasco.  Long story short, as they say, things turned out fine after all.  It was a bit complicated--bought desk #1 which turned out to be too small for my needs; listed desk #1 on Craigslist and ended up selling it for more than we paid for it; purchased and picked up desk #2 which turned out to be perfect.  Here are pictures of the new desk. 
                                      Pretty, isn't it?
                            Lots of neat cubbies and drawers.
                                The piece de resistance........
                      17" laptop fits.  YAY!!!

Ready for the next Leo Curse crisis?  Stay tuned--I'll keep you posted!

Is my face red!!

Last night my daughter emailed to tell me that one of the blogs I follow on "My Blog List" had an--ahem!--inappropriate picture and some writing in a foreign language.  When I checked it out, I almost died of embarrassment.  In the place of what had been an interesting and informative political blog there was now a sexy picture and something written in Russian.  I clicked on the link just to see if perhaps it was a joke, but it wasn't. It was some kind of Russian pornography site.  Ick!!  So I quickly logged in and removed the link.  I have no idea how long it was on my page, but I do want to apologize if anyone saw it and was offended.  Lesson learned: check blog often!!  You never know when you're going to be hacked, or when a Russian pornographer is going to co-opt one of your links.  :-(

Early Summer Fun

I just thought I'd add a few pictures of Leo and Etta being cute this summer so far. They both love the pool, and since summer came so early this year--temps in the 100s from early June--we've had lots of opportunities to enjoy the water. Leo will be 3 at the end of August and is smart as a whip, and Etta, who will be 6 months old (I cannot believe it!) July 7, is growing and flourishing like a little weed. We can't wait til the Cribbies return in August from their summer at Kanakuk so we can get all the cousins together again!!

Here's Etta showing off her pink tutu bathing suit.
                                  Can she be any girlier??
                      Leo, of course, is all boy and all fun.
                Etta, sporting her sun hat before a dip in the pool.
                What a life--floating in a dolphin with mama nearby!
     Leo is really into water noodles.  He likes to line one up with the pool jet so the water flows through to the other end.....
          After a refreshing swim, what could be more fun than playing 2 recorders at once?
Or showing your flexibility by sucking on your own clean feet?
