Sorry little updating lately. Busy reading, for the most part. Did put together utility cupboard shelving from IKEA, picked up with Karen -- very satisfying to have all the paint cans, old rugs, tool chests, etc. up off the very dirty floor. Zoe and Roshani were over when I was assembling it, and Zoe had much fun climbing in and out of the "house" that I was building. :-) Also loved mini watering can (my plants are now swimming in water) and blue monster umbrella (with horns that stick out) from IKEA. Hope Jeremiah liked his ladybug? I adore having small people to buy presents for. They may not enjoy them for long (since they often either break or forget them), but they enjoy them so intensely for a little while.
