Busy Busy Busy!

Yes, I know it's blurry. I picked it on purpose. My daughter is holding the sign on the right (that's for you, Mom).

We are in the final weeks of our Schoolhouse Rock Live production. My two oldest and I have been involved with this YouThespian group through our local Albany Civic Theater since last November. We open just before my 40th birthday. Many things in my life have been put on hold out of necessity, including the blog posts I'd planned as I counted down my 40/40 list.

Never fear! I am still crossing things off. I had my first pedicure last Saturday and enjoyed hanging out with some of my girlfriends. I hope to tackle a few more this weekend. I will not be finishing the entire list, but I am pleased with the results so far.

The rain is letting up and the dogwoods are blooming. Pink flowering dogwood might just be my favorite flowring tree. I'm trying to participate in Ali's "A Week in the Life"--I took pictures at rehearsal last night and today I took some pictures of the dogwood in my neighborhood. I also realized that I've lost the eyecup on my camera. Let me know if you see it.

I'll leave you with this beauty:

And this one (in case you want to make it your desktop background):

Those are gorgeous dogwood blossoms!!

(My dad's usual joke. "Oh, that's a dogwood." "How do you know?" "From the bark. Hardee-har-har!" ... Thank you, try the chicken. :P)

And are we going to get pictures of your pedicure? Or at least get the name of the color you chose? ^_^

Also, when is the dress rehersal? I know it's going to be legend- ... wait for it ... -ary!! ^_^
