Malia has recently expressed interest in trying piano lessons again. So today we gave it another go! I was impressed with how much she remembered (and has learned along the way in music class at school).

Last weekend for my birthday, Les gave me this gorgeous ring made by my very talented friend. He remembered I had said I wanted a big chunky ring so he made that a reality.

Having a busted dishwasher is bunk! But serves as a good reminder for how fortunate I am to usually have such an appliance at my disposal!

Malia was catching up on her devotional book tonight (she got behind when we were away on our trip) and on the one for January 15th, it said she should tell somebody that they are a gift from God. Since it was on the day that was my birthday, she thought it fitting to choose me! So when I came upstairs to tuck her in for the night, she passed me this note which made my heart melt.

A much enjoyed Monday off today and most of it was spent crocheting.

Our annual family trip to Fargo is usually over the Christmas break but due to some conflicts we had to postpone it. It just so happened to fall over my birthday weekend which meant I could celebrate turning 38 at Paradiso.
