Some censuring Readers will scornfully say, why hath this Lady writ her own life? Since none cares to know whose daughter she was or whose wife she is, or how she was bred, or what fortunes she had, or how she lived, or what humor or disposition she was of? I answer that is true, that 'tis to no purpose to the Readers, but it is to the Authoress, because I write it for my own sake, not theirs. ~Margaret Cavendish in 1655

Now I just have to come up with a nice white elephant gift that isn't a white elephant. hmmm.... I have started into making mixes and good stuff like that. I think that tomorrow I will start an assembly line to make mixes. That means I have buy dry measuring cups and measuring spoons. That is something that didn't make it to the move. I have no clue where they are. hmmm... How badly do I want to fight the crowds today? Maybe I can sweet talk Sweetie when we go to the movies this evening.

So officially, I want YOU to be a joiner.... a sheep if you will. Pull out your yarn and knit or crochet. Or just make cocoa for your buddy who does.

So, visit your library today and see which banned books you can read and demand all 100!

Speaking of liquor.... I need to just go out and buy some! I am living in a 'dry' house and the wrongness factor is high. I lived in a Muslim, dry country and had more liquor then than I do now. (God Bless Thailand and the King's duty-free shopping extravaganza at the Bangkok Airport.) Again, with the high wrongness factor. hmmmm... I think that I will have to go out and do something about this. My liver needs the occassional pickling. Sweetie can vouch for this.

Erin and Dan got hitched yesterday and it was absolutely lovely. Erin made a beautiful bride and the bridesmaids had lovely dresses. I looked cute and so did everyone, come to think of it. I hate going to weddings and seeing folks not even try to clean up. That is sooo annoying! I read the Bible verses without a major flub and so did the other 3 readers. At the rehearsal, the organist yelled at us to be quiet... not the first time I'd been in trouble in church, but the first time in a while. It would probably happen more often if I attended. hmmm...
I also got to meet with some of Erin's other friends and I really enjoyed Jo and Jerry. She is an Aussie working at the tire factory. She cracked me up and now I want to be her friend too! hmmm.... I'll work on Erin for an opportunity!
Sweetie should be back soon from his trip to CA with Berk and Stella. The pictures are really good, so check out his site!

This evening I had a lovely time with Mom. We went to Bluffton College's Yoder Hall and watched a string sextet, composed of 2 mandolins (one of whom switched to violin on occassion), a mandocello, a mandola, a guitar and a bass. It was completely delightful! They played classical music, bluegrass, ho-down, new age and finished with the Beatles. I'm in love with them. They are the Nashville Mandolin Ensemble and if you have a chance, go see them!!!
Also, I am excited that Heather H. is coming and staying the night. She will be the first guest at Casa Ferguson and I can hardly wait!
But before that can occur.... Erin from Marysville is getting hitched on Saturday and I have to go and read scriptures. I hope God doesn't strike my sinning butt down for just showin' up. Beware of thunder.

Since last I've blogged, Jilli has grown big, I'm knitting a blanky for Cousin Nichole's baby (and this will never happen again), I've found a recipe for Pumpkin butter I can't wait to try and I figured out that this is my 27th or so move in the last 11 years. Yes, the number is somewhat correct. Scary isn't it? I think that I will stay here for at least a year, but you never know. I hope to start grad school on-line, as soon as the paperwork gets done. Ugh... paperwork. A necessary evil.
So, if you are in the neighborhood, drop by and I'll make some s'more on my gas log fire in my livingroom. A girl has to take advantage of what drops in her lap!
