Keeps Gettin Better

What a wondeful weekend! How was yours? I got to spend time doing the things I want to do. No commitments--it was fantastic. My little brother, Mark, came back into town and we enjoyed some lovely time together. Mark always challenges my menu planning skills, as he has become a vegetarian. We had sweet potato bisque, Chickpea soup, and Spring veggie pasta stir-fry. They were all pretty great. I like the challenge of coming up with meals that Mark will eat but Pete (my carnivore brother) will tolerate. It is a challenge.
Mark and I also got to spend some time just reading and chatting. It is a favorite passtime of mine. Eric and I did a little bit of it this weekend, too. Here is Mark, at the coffee shop, pondering the meaning of life.

Well, actually, he was on the phone. But I am sure he DID ponder the meaning of life while we were there. Mark leaves for Greece in a week, so we are trying to get all the time we can with him.
If you were wondering, I did practice my knitting skills this weekend. When my knitting begins to look more like a "something" and less like a blob, I will post again with pictures.
After a great Sunday of teaching Sunday school (a first for Eric) and enjoying time with our small group, I had a great day off on Monday. Most importantly, I got a hair cut! Before I reveal the results, here is what my hair looked like just a few months ago...

And here I am now... (drumroll please)...

Eric says this is the first time he's seen a haircut make hair actually look longer. I'm diggin it!
So really, 2009 DOES keep getting better. And, my parents added a new addition to their home on Satruday. I will post pictures of Baby Mo the yorkie when I get some.
On a serious not, today is an exciting and anticipatory day for our country. Although I am sick of watching the historical, unprecidented updates, I do think it is very important for each of us to pray for the state of our nation. Obama, like all presidents, has a big task at hand. He needs all the support he can get. Please pray for God's hand to be upon him and his family, and for our country. I am looking forward to Miss Michelle's dress. Yes, I am girly.
My update is getting long, but I will say that the Bachelor is getting pretty good! I will have to update on it after next week's episode.
Here's to great haircuts, new presidents, and Tuesdays that feel like Mondays!
