It was a big science activity day today--one kid blew up balloons to match the planets of the solar system in scale and the other experimented with centripetal force, whirling washers around on string. I wish I could say we had a great time and learned a lot, but the sad truth is that we would all just as soon not be bothered by these activities (though I think we may have learned something in spite of ourselves).

I took this with my camera phone as my pastor was preparing for our Sunday evening service. I am so grateful to God for this servant of His, who faithfully keeps watch over my soul--may I live in such a way that he can do this with joy and not groaning (Hebrews 13:17)!

I have clearly obligated myself to post a picture of my third good-looking child, but that will have to wait. I spent the afternoon with a friend, ferrying her to her back surgeon's office and then, fortified at Starbuck's, exploring the Connecticut shoreline together. This picture is a view from the shore in Stony Creek, looking at one of the inhabited Thimble Islands. It would be interesting, I think, to live in a house on a rock in Long Island Sound, relying on water taxi for transportation to the mainland.

I love the smell and feel of sun-dried clothes! Dave fixed the back stairs that give me easy access to the clothesline over the weekend, and today was one of the first really warm days of the season and perfect for drying the clothes outdoors. Yay--simple pleasures!

I spent a long time outside Sunday afternoon reading and taking pictures. I watched this bird and its mate off and on much of that time, hoping to get a decent picture. They're extremely well camouflaged, and I was afraid to get too close. I am pretty sure they are hermit thrushes.
