"Women of God can never be like women of the world. The world has enough women who are tough; we need women who are tender. There are enough women who are coarse; we need women who are kind... We have enough women of fame and fortune; we need more women of faith." -- Margaret D. Nadauld

A Study in Silliness

Steck came over tonight and reamed me out that I haven't been blogging more lately. I mean... sheesh! She goes months and months, never reading a post, and now she thinks I need to be writing more!! (Ha! Steck.... you know I love ya!)

Okay, so I have neglected my blog lately. But to be honest, I don't feel like there is a creative cell in my body and I can't think of anything to write about. I could drone on and on about Girl's Camp and the preparations I'm doing for it and how I DON'T want to go this year and how glad I am that this is my last year... but who wants to read a depressing post like that?

I could write a travelogue about our recent trip to Portland and how much fun we had even though we were only there for the weekend... but that's not exciting reading.

I could write about Max's new job contract and how relieved we are that we can feed our family and make our house payment... but how stimulating is that?

There is just nothing that I can think of to write about!!

So, to make Steck happy, I decided to make another slide show:

Finally, FINALLY, we have warm, decent weather so after dinner, we took a walk to the park. Max is out of town, so it was Steck, Buttercup, Inigo and I. While Inigo was playing on the equipment, out came my trusty best friend... my Canon PowerShot. Buttercup and I goofed off taking pictures of ourselves using as many different faces and poses that we could think of. People around us thought we were weird, except the lovely couple sitting on the benches behind us who obviously couldn't afford to get themselves a room.... (you'll see them in a couple pictures).

And so I give you, Buttercup and Me, A Study in Silliness

(oh yeah, there is an overabundance of chins in these pictures... just try to ignore them!)

Aha ha! Still laughing. Fun times.

Thanks for the blog 'dedication', however, I hardly REAMED you out, and I've been keeping up-to-date on your blog for quite a while now (I think you're remembering things from a couple years ago!!!).

Thanks for humoring me. :)
