I was about as energetic as a slab of beef in a slow cooker for most of the winter and didn't post much because I couldn't think deeply.  Now I have plenty to say and can't touch down for all the activity whirling around me. Wedding quilts, book quilts, my little Dog Star cloth of Clutch...travelling plans (mine)and wedding plans (kid)... a class on the Psalms at rabbi school and a teaching I am going to do on Passover both at my synagogue and for my unlucky guests at our seder table...and then of course, should it ever stop snowing for long enough, get the yard clean and the Garden birthed.

I really do have something Big to say, a lot of thinking these past few weeks on Grace's post about the notion of "coming into one's own." What this means to me.  As soon as my heart rate slows down, I'll be back to this placeholder of a topic.

Meanwhile, to fulfill Julie P's last request (not coming out right but you know what I mean), feast your eyes on our little Molly. She is sweet and bouncy and looks at the camera like she's a teenage actress posing for paparazzi all her life:

    1. She is a Her in temperament too. She howls when I wrestle w Billy and when he tries to show her how to wrestle, ("first I nip at your leg, then you try to swallow my head"), she pulls away and says "want to play Barbies?"

  2. What a doll! Demure and flirtatious all at the same time...
    I look forward to your thoughts on coming into your own. Grace's post has been on my mind too.

    1. You should hear Himself talk to her...like he is talking to a little girl in a pink party dress. Billy just rolls his eyes and walks out of the room
