Life has been pretty normal lately. Thankfully the flowers are blooming, the weather is changing to a pleasant degree of warm-ness (most of the time, anyway). Coats, boots and gloves have been put away and have been replaced by short sleeves and fluttery skirts. Flip-flops have found their way onto the bedroom floor (alright, so it's easier to leave them there then in the closet. *grin*) and window let in the careful breeze that fills the room and brightens the entire day. I love it. Love every bit of it.

Sunshine + Warm weather + slight breeze = Bliss.

Absolute bliss. :)

Besides that I've been reading books. Depressing books. Don't ask and don't read them. ;) I've been feeling miserable for days after I finish them and have begun to wonder WHY I read them. Crazy, I know. It appears I'm going into the kids section next time I go to the library to get a nice happy book about a duck that lives at a farm and eats bugs and lives a happy-go-lucky, worry-free, non-depressing life. Ah. Sounds...good. lol. Or not. ;D

I watched the first two episodes of "Little Dorrit". They were lovely. The cast they chose does an extremely pleasing job on their roles- I really liked the actress they chose for Little Dorrit...she was sweet and has this "real" look about her. I love how Masterpiece theater gets actors and actresses who look like *real* people and not like fake-air-brushed super models. Her character was lovely and she made a perfect Amy Dorrit. It was also fun to see some actors and actresses from other BBC films that I recognized. :) So all in all, I'm eagerly looking forward to watching episode 3!

Easter Sunday was beautiful today. Christ not only died for us, but He is also risen! What greater joy can their be?? Aside from a lovely service and wonderful sermon, we went on a walk about the neighborhood that surrounds our Church building. It was rather uneventful, but delightful. Here are a few,

Me, Len and Meli.

That white fence was just too cute to pass up!

My gorgeous friend.
My gorgeous sister.

Tiff looks like she's having WAY too much fun at the park. LOL! (I just love this picture!!) Uhu.

Group picture on the stairs!!

A feet picture. Easter shoes are just too fun to pass up.

Us being goofy. :D

And another goofy one. :D

Our weather, Jess, can't make up its mind. I think it is supposed to be warm this week! Yippee!!!

Depressing books, I have had my share of those. "The Red Badge of Courage" definitely fit in that category...I hated every minute of it.

Have you read "Cranford." I just finished it and it is not depressing =)

I hope you are having a lovely spring. I really need to try and see if another e-mail will get through to you.

LOL, fun photos!

I recently finished watching Little Dorrit online. I loved it! Wait til you see the ending! I was crying so hard all through the last episode. . .

Hope you're all doing well!

It's so funny when you've watched several BBC movies... you start seeing all these people who were in other movies you've seen. My dad jokes that the people casting it just say, "Let's get the group with the accents." LOL!

Thanks for the update! Love all the pictures - all your outfits are so cute! :-)

Depressing books?? I like books that kind of choke me up at some places (I've never actually cried during a book, but have gotten dangerously near it a couple times), but not depressing books. Just read a little of Paddington or something - you'll feel better REAL fast! :-D

And on your "Sunshine+Warm weather+slight breeze= bliss", add "Family and Close friends" and it'd be perfect! :-) We were planning on going rowing on our pond today (my sister had a tea party for her 17th birthday, and all of us girls were in white dresses - so much fun!) but our friends had to leave right then, so perhaps tomorrow will be the day. Have you ever gone rowing? It is delightful!

YAY!!! A post!!! It looks like you've been having a lovely time!!! I wish I could have been there to enjoy Easter Sunday with all of you lovely gals!! I miss y'all so much! It seems like FOREVER since I last saw everyone... *SIGH* LOL! My mom and I were laughing so hard when you said you were going to go to the kid's section to get books :D :D

Those pics are just too fun!

I can recommend some more depressing books. You know, if you haven't had your fill yet. :-)

Though, now I'm curious: what did you find depressing about them?

(And have you read "The Giving Tree" by Shel Silversteen? It's a depressing book in the children's section!)

Hello Jessica...
Those pictures are just darling. I love the white dresses and skirts, and other Easter finery. Makes me homesick!

Keep the posts coming, girl!
