First Robin of Spring!

I'm blogging this because Brent's short of time. When we were out running last Saturday, that is, March 25, Brent saw a robin--the first robin we've seen thus far this spring. :)

This morning, in my procrastination from homework, I slipped over to the MEC website and was perusing the catalogue with our trip to Nepal and my summer research in mind. Lo and behold I discovered that I could make a wish list! Consequently, I did. :) If you're interested in perusing mine, here's how to get there Also, I found a really cool thing that I thought I'd show you. MEC sells them. It's called a Filzer Orkoon, apparently a cross between a spork and a foon (according the website). They're on clearance for $5.75.

Blogging, blogging, blogging

Hey all you fine blogg readers It's approximately two minutes to eleven and will, in all likelihood, be eleven or later by the time I quit posting. Tonight we went with Bec and Eric on a much anticipated much needed adventure to Costco. We spent waayyy too much money but got all kinds of good things like...apples...and granola bars and spaghetti... Also, I got a CD--CDs are cheap at Costco!!--by the Little Willies. The Little Willies are a bluegrassy/jazzy group of musicians including Norah Jones. Norah Jones just happens to be one of my alltime favorite female artists. Prayer thought: younger brother Jorgen leave for a mission trip to Mexico in two days and at this point he is passportless and suffering from a foot injury. (That's Jorgen in the skateboarding picture). High moment of the day: 2006 Spring/Summer catalogue from MEC arrived today! I can start dreaming about all the neat things I would buy if we had money. Projects of the day: Brent's working on his house model. "I have three more pieces to put on the roof and then the basic roof shape is done. I just have to add details like dormers and chimneys and and and...soooo I still have a bit of work to do..." (and he made chocolate chip cookies). :) Kirstin's projects: Final exam in Medieval Marriage History...didn't go particularly well. Critique of Rural Western History paper...probably being too hard on the guy. --Female 1/2 Out

First Cut is the Deepest

Lately Brent and I have been listening to a lot of Cat Stevens. What got me back into a Cat mood was when one of the guys on American Idol sang a Cat song guessed it, "The first Cut is the deepest". It's a really good song: pretty melody and thoughtful lyrics. I pulled out all my Cat records tonight (incidentally, I asked Brent for a record player for my birthday as a result) and discovered that I have seven records and two cds of Cat. Pretty impressive, hey? I just wish I could play them!
