Now Playing: Whip my Hair -- Willow Smith
It snowed alot today and work was cancelled, so far I've gotten alot accomplished. This morning, I got up at my usual time and shoveled the driveway until my toes got cold. Then I came back inside and fixed myself some pancakes and eggs for breakfast.
Then I went outside to shovel snow again and was met by my upstairs neighbor. We shoveled for a couple of hours and I came back inside and cleaned the bathtub and sink in my bathroom (with Comet--gotta love that stuff--though I now have it all over my shirt).
I have been thinking about drawing a picture of Our Lady with many children under her mantle. I know I've seen a picture like this before, but I'm not sure what this image of Mary is called. Anyone out there know? Will you enlighten me? Thanks!
I only have two more days of work until my two week vacation. I'm sooo excited, but I really need the time off.
I've gotten back into an old hobby that I used to do...mainly purchase old Cabbage Patch dolls and fix them up to give them away. I picked up a red-haired cutie a week ago, who I've christened "Evelyn Renee". Evelyn after the lady who was my landlord before I moved into a convent, and Renee after a friend of mine. I bought a cute sunflower dress for her, and painted a sunflower over a paint rub that she had on her face. I know that the sunflower on her face might rub off eventually, but I wonder if there is something I could spray on it to make it stay longer... I even bought my first pack of diapers to put on the doll... I used to buy those baby doll diapers, that they sold at the toy store, but a coworker told me that it would be cheaper to just buy a pack of real baby diapers, I checked at the store and she was correct! Anyways, a diaper on the doll makes it even more special to the person who will receive the doll (I'm also a collector-so, I know).
There is still not a day that goes by that I don't think of the Sisters. I am sure that I want to join their associate program. I know that I belong with them somehow. I took the step to contact one of their associate directors and she said that she'll contact me in May when their program starts up. I know that's still months away, but I'm really looking forward to it!
