~ Number One ~
On Tuesday, both the Solemnity of St. Joseph and the Installation of Pope Francis, we celebrated with great fanfare. As a nod to our Argentinian pontiff, we feasted on dulce de leche cheesecake bars.
Do you see that drippy shiny sweet stuff on the bottom? Pure heaven.
I think these will have to make a repeat appearance on Easter. And Pentecost. And my birthday. And National Tap Dance Day.

Remember my Easter dress last week? Not able to bear bare arms, I've been searching for a shrug.
Yay for this little number, on sale, at Target!
I'll sew some little pearl buttons on it and deem it "perfect."

Total Language Plus. I really10,000 like this series. It is a comprehensive literature-based spelling, vocabulary, comprehension and writing program all in neat little copy-able books.
I've been using the program all year with my nieces and I am super impressed. The "grammar" section is weak, at best, but that's easily replaced.
It's humiliating, but I'm learning vocabulary words from middle school books. Portmanteau, lanneret, lavabo, demesne... mind blown.
~ Number Four ~
Oh, how much I want our new house to have character, charm and beauty! Old five paneled doors will aid that goal. Now if only I could score 'em dirt cheap on Craigslist or the Habitat ReStore.
~ Number Five ~
There's some heroic virtue going on right now, as my husband and I are both saving the last piece of homemade beef jerky for each other.
