Change of pace

I'm considering switching over to WordPress.  It has some features I like.  Or something.  Would you follow me if I did that?

Daddy Day

Sunday, June 18, 2006
Happy Father's Day!  I'm lucky - I have an incredible dad, and I'm married to the most amazing father.  We've been down at the lake this weekend, and had much fun.  This morning, we got to see the joy on Lauren's face when her daddy loved the gift that she dreamed up and created for him.  A box for the tv remotes - how handy is that?  She was so intense about her project, and did a great job making it, keeping it secret, and decorating it.  He, of course, loved it and will keep it forever.

My dad and I were sitting out on the back deck, watching Mark drive Sam around in the golf cart, and they were having fun.  Dad said "Do you know how lucky you are?  You can just see how much he loves these kids.  Mark is such a great father."

Takes one to know one.

Here's a great quote, from Healthy Children:

"Sherman made the terrible discovery that men make about their fathers sooner or later... that the man before him was not an aging father but a boy, a boy much like himself, a boy who grew up and had a child of his own and, as best he could, out of a sense of duty and, perhaps love, adopted a role called Being a Father so that his child would have something mythical and infinitely important: a Protector, who would keep a lid on all the chaotic and catastrophic possibilities of life."

- Tom Wolfe, The Bonfire of the Vanities

This is my latest successful home project. Doesn't it look pretty? And useful, too, as the spices are near at hand and highly visible. I think I'll use them even more now that I don't have to hunt through an overstuffed cabinet, knocking jars over as I go. Plus, I'm a bargain hunter - I've seen similar kits of 12 spice jars and a measly little strip of metal that cost $40. I have 36, and I spent about $50. I didn't even punch holes in the wall either. I used these. I can easily take these down at a later date, without any damage to the wall. I love that. But it looks nice too, very colorful. Mark doesn't much like it though, because each tin is labeled on the back. I don't have nice enough handwriting to mark on the fronts, to be quite honest with you. Perhaps I'll alphabetize everything, to make his life a bit easier.
