A 9th century chinese apology letter.

Prozac Quilt top by Hawghugger. "This quilt was way too much fun to make. No pattern, just a lot of sewing. Each block started out with the 3D flower and strips of fabric added till I liked each block. None of the blocks are the same size, therefore putting it together was tricky, but, it all worked out in the end.

IT WAS TOUGH YESTERDAY--FIGHTING AGAIN OVER THE SAME DAMN ISSUE. BUT I DIDN'T CAPITULATE. ITS GONE ON FOR YEARS. I WAS FREE TO QUESTION HIM UNDER OATH--AS DID THE JUDGE. I TOOK A CHANCE--ONE I NEVER WOULD HAVE TAKEN BEFORE B/C I WAS TOO GOOD. YOU KNOW WHEN YOU HAVE REAL FREEDOM?--WHEN YOU HAVE NOTHING LEFT TO LOSE. YESTERDAY--THOUGH SCARED--I WAS FREE. AND I'M HERE TODAY TO WRITE ABOUT IT.
“She had nothing to wish otherwise, but that the days did not pass so swiftly. It was a delightful visit;—perfect, in being much too short.” ~Jane Austen
The sequel to 100 cupboards. I enjoyed it just as much as the first but it was a little too intense to read to my 7 year old. I would say 4th grade or older would be perfect.
Books Worth Reading
Lily Elsie was a popular actress and singer in Edwardian days. A century later, thanks to the Internet, she has been rediscovered. Her dreamy beauty was captured in scores of photographs. She posed in many beautiful dresses, but none so frequently as the one seen here. I haven't been able to discover who designed the gown (although one source claims it was Lucile) or what color it was, but that just sets us free to imagine.
I don't usually like to pin religious stuff, because people get offended but I love this one way too much to pass up. Sorry if this offends anybody. Love letter from God.
Fashion I love
THIS HAS GONE TOO FAR. SERIOUSLY. I WILL KILL YOU, RICK, IF YOU KILL OFF NICO, LEO, OR PERCY. YOU CAN KILL OFF JASON FOR ALL I CARE (sorry Jason lovers, but the others are much more important to me than him). BUT YOU SO MUCH AS TRY TO KILL OFF ANY OF THEM, I WILL KILL YOU. BEST YET, LET OCTAVIAN FINALLY SEE THE LIGHT AND SHUT THE DOORS HIMSELF SO NONE OF THE SEVEN HAFTA GO THROUGH THIS.
I love you more ... more than yesterday, but not at much as I'm going to love you tomorrow
Lost in translation but adorable I will find a way to do this too!
I don't want a bigger but as much as I want have a tight but after having a baby...but still a must try for me
I'm having a really hard day. I wanna cut but I don't want to relapse. I'm crying because I know none will ever love me like this.... Or at All
words of wisdom.
I remember having a thermos like this with the little cup on top but it wasn't Ziggy. He used to be on everything back then but I was little & didn't care for him much
This sweet girl is the 3rd baby in a way-too-gorgeous family! Ive been lucky enough to photograph each of these dolls at my favorite age, 6 months old. S was so easy going and full of smiles, and as you can see, the camera adores her. But, not as much as I did. I wanted to take her home.
The Cyrillic alphabet was established as a Slavic written language by Cyril and Methodius during the 9th century.
British bombers Vickers "Wellington" Mk I of the 9th Bombardment Squadron in flight. The photo was taken during a training exercise in 1939. The 9th Squadron fought as "Wellington" until August 1942, when it was changed to "Lancaster".
This is obviously much too big and would be outrageous to maintain but I love the idea of a acrylic fish tank wall with an archway that you pass through to get from the reception area to the kids rooms. I want kids to be as close to nature as they can get. There would be small sharks, octopus, and who knows what else in there to let kids imaginations run wild!

As a child in Puerto Rico having fresh Pomegranates was a typical treat .. Was so much fun to eat a Granada Fruit! Yummo
Work-for-hire list of chores. I like the idea of having instructions with the check list, but I'd pay more for the chores. Feels a little too much like Cinderella - work all day for less than $3! lol

Glock makes a knife too. I bought one of these, way back when Glock was just coming into the mainstream. I didn't think much about it, but it's a pretty good knife. Mates up to the AUG Steyr, as a bayonet, if I remember right.

Funny Text Message - Dude. So yesterday, I was in a restaurant and i really needed to pass gas. And... The music was really loud, so I did. And... I realized I was listening to my Ipod. HAHAHAHA

Vanilla Wafer Cupcakes with Banana Pudding Frosting Very good! And no bananas!!! The amount of icing I made was too much but I am going to use it to dip vanilla wafers in and it will be great! You could honestly use it as a fruit dip if you put a different pudding in it.
Think Chinese foot binding was "weird" ? Today's shoes are not much better... Women are still hobbled and have many more health problems as a result. I'm guilty too, but can all us women agree that extreme heels are not the answer?
I gotta admit, I was skeptical. I mean, how is learning yoga easy for a tall, inflexible runner such as myself? But I have to say, this was much easier than murdering my enemies. ;)
Pretty darn depressing century. Fascinating book, though I sometimes thought there was too much detail.
