cast of characters

Lani and Ann are the Weaver sisters!

Lani's household consists of Steve, the long-suffering coding genius and computer security guru; Jim, Lani's tall, red-headed and handsome son, currently finishing his second year of college; Hunter, Jasmine, Himari, Chenault, the miraculous Onyx and the even more miraculous Resk, undisputed feline rulers of the house; and Jesse, the man-hating green-cheeked conure.

Ann's household consists of Don, who is not just a computer genius but a pilot, a builder, and a damn good father; their son Steve, the marathon-running, college-bound, funniest teenager I know; and wonder dog Tater.

Other family members are Laurie, Lani's beautiful daughter who teaches at elementary levels; her handsome son Alex, aka Alexander the Great; Mary and Bo, a/k/a Mom and Dad, and Bud and Ann, Steve's patient and wonderful parents.

Magic (posted by Ann)


Buy a $.99 bath puff, cut it open, cut off a length and tie a knot in it - and you have the best yarn ball holder ever. It keeps your center pull ball from unraveling on the outside. Magic, I tell you, magic.






So, Lani, do you remember this? I finally got it framed and hung in my guest bath, and it looks wonderful. I'm the grateful recipient of your needlework, so if you have any more you want to send this way my door is always open!











And finally, here is what Don got me for Christmas. He had an artist in China copy my favorite Toulouse-Latrec painting, and it is back from framing. Isn't it wonderful? I know everyone is relieved that I am using this to replace the fish. No one loved my fish but me, so he is now relegated to France.

In other news, we are all doing well. I will be home this week since I leave for India on Friday. I have changed my travel plans, though, and won't be going to Australia this time around, so I'll be home again the following Thursday in body at least. I expect it might take my mind about 24 hours to catch up with me.

Don is fine, and the airplane should come home next week. Of course, they found more stuff to be done during the annual, so it's not quite done yet.

Steve has finished his finals for the first semester, and has a little bit of a break this weekend before he has to start up again. His load will belighter next semester, which he's happy about. I don't know how he lucked out but he has an open slot first period. That's perfect for study, or for making sure you have homework done - lucky guy, huh!

What's up at your house?

I like your fish! I do like Don's replacement too but the fish added color and interest to your room.
