Time to unveil the NEW! and IMPROVED! blogroll. Sorry I got distracted by reality. Well, actually, by my husband's reality of house-building (whch WILL be posted this week if it kills me). So, without further ado, here are our new reads:

Found after much searching, deep in the depths of darkest jungles ... or France: K's Cafe. There are many good things about the French. They have no fear of butter. They know how to make sauces. They put pictures of hedgehogs on laundry-product boxes. They offer fodder for Katherine's blog. Whats not to love!?!

For those of you addicted to cleverness, you simply must go visit at Testosterhome. How cool is that name!?! Rachel is a stay-at-home-mom of four boys. With good hair. (Which is NOT a given when you have four children. And its even harder to achieve if you live here in the mid-west. I noticed last Sunday at the Easter Contata that absolutely NO one in the choir had a good hair-cut. All the men either looked like bald soldiers or Vulcans. I can't believe I'm actually planning ahead for hair-cuts for the family when we visit my parents in the South this summer. ) And extremely cute cleverness seems to run in Rachel's family. Her boys obviously love life and mud and soap and potato-sculpture. She must be doing something REALLY right.

Unfortunately, Leah at StillAliveMomma has had a bad week. Wiccan trolls. Which inspired her to kill her comments. Except to members. And I don't know how we get to be members. But, regardless, her blog is lovely and generally funny and charming. She was even charming to the troll! And she likes Jakers-TheAdventuresOfPigglelyWinks. Which we all know is the MOST fabulous show ever. Lol. It is. I swear it is. What Tom Sawyer would be if he had been written as a small Irish pig. Oddly, I only just now noticed that she's the mother of four children too. And she lives in Texas (which is practically a Southern state). There's no picture, but I bet she has a good hair-cut too! Argh.

Which leads to our next addition -- Jennifer Knighton at Knighton. Isn't that a great last name? (My sister in law used to have the last name of "Roach". She changed it pretty quick when she married my brother) Jennifer also lives in Texas. I can't tell from the artistally Andy-Warhol-ish picture on her site, but I bet she has a good hair-cut too. Not that I would be obsessing about that this morning. I knew I would be going back to read her site again and again when I saw that her favorite bible verse is "I do believe. Help me overcome my unbelief." Mark 9:24, which is also my favorite verse. Or at least the verse most appropriate to me. And one of her favorite movies is Groundhog Day, which makes me smile. A lot. Especially the part where he holds the groundhog under the arms and dangles him so you can see the little squished up groundhog-face. Which is what my husband does with the baby to make me laugh. "Look, there's mommy. She looks grumpy. hehehehehehehehe. wiggle. wiggle." Compounded by the fact that his mother slipped once and told me that she used to call him "my little groundhog" when he was young. Wait ... this is about Jennifer ... She's a good writer. She doesn't have four children yet, but she does have odd dreams about gum. She quizzed as "Iris" but decided she'd rather be "Rose" so just changed the image on her blog! I admire people that think outside the box that way (which could be why I quizzed "Lily" instead of "Iris") I bet she runs red-lights at 4:00am at deserted intersections.


Lucy! You have made my day! Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

And to answer your curiousity - I have a great haircut and I DO run redlights at 4 in the morning. *snicker*

Have a great day!

Thanks for the link, Lucy...I love your whole island-wave-travel agent theme...it makes it fun just to be here.

Thanks for the shoutout, Lucy! I appreciate your kind remarks. Blessed Holy Week.

Rachel | 04/12/2006 - 12:11 AM

Thank you, Lucy. Jennifer told me that you emailed her, and I am greatful for your comments. It will please the reader to know that Jennifer Knighton is my sister--I once bore that name.
When we were praying for husbands, Jennifer prayed for a cooler name, which she got, and I prayed for a shorter name, which I got!

To the reader, I will probably begin a new blog somewhere else, sorry Lucy, but I promise to tell everybody when I do.
Love ya!

I'm just sorry it took me so long to get it all together! I started finding y'al sometime in January. But, then, I'm the one that was also under a deadline from my husband to get the Christmas gifts to Colorado before we visited for Spring break. And I made it two days ahead of deadline. Which was not my fault. I swear. It was all the post-office's fault. They finally got it delivered (three months late) after I ever-so-politely-but-firmly told them they could either deliver the package or refund my postage. All I have to say is this -- Colorado has some really odd postal policies.
