Happy Birthday to the Bard

"Be not afraid of greatness: some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them". - (Twelfth Night Act II, Scene V)

(happy baptism day, one day late, to precise - though how precise is really a complete mystery!)

oh, and this is pretty neat: build your own Globe Theatre out of paper!

Happy Birthday my Dad! The best one I know of and the only one I would want!

The Last Two Weeks

In list form. More for my own memory than anything else... And in no particular order, because I'm feeling a bit lazy.

  • Easter = lots of cooking and sleeping
  • I love quiche and plan to make more in the near future
  • I need a rolling board for making things like sticky buns and quiche shells
  • Crocuses blooming along the road
  • Around half the bulbs planted last fall have shown their shiny heads
  • Front porch is somewhat painted
  • Barnboard bench* is close to done
  • New website projects are up and coming
  • Winter jacket has been all but banished (I refuse to wear it during the day, early morning walks are the only exception)
  • Little peat potted plants in the windows are growing bravely despite a certain curious dog
  • I volunteered at the public library on Saturday and only really messed up once, so hopefully they will let me come again
  • 30 Rock is hilarious
  • I've been seriously slacking on my gym attendance: this must be rectified
  • A Brownie 8mm movie camera is on its way to my door...
  • Waking up is hard to do
  • There is no excuse for baby presents to be a whole month late - I had 9 + months of preparation time!
  • I am trying to learn Flash, what a techie!
  • Tetris has been consuming way too much of my time and eye power lately
  • I am searching for the perfect cotton knit dress, comfortable and simple and solid colored
  • Also the perfect pants, but those are too hard to describe, I will recognize them when I see them...
  • Picture:

    *exciting project, more to come when I have completed sanding, burning, varnishing and bolting

    A Fool for April
