April's finished . . so it's time for a goal update. Read an old book: I read The Little Prince and Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats . And several other "older" books are still on my hold list at the library. It was a nice change of pace to read something in which there's no mention of the internet, cell phones, or television.

Any other ideas for taking the place of the chicken? Start by chopping your veggies: I didn
That's a silly question, right? But I found one in my cereal bowl earlier . . I don't see many spiders inside the house and this is a pretty big one (laugh away if you live in Australia ) so I thought I'd snap a photo. And no worries about the spider's safety. I took it outside after I took its picture. :) Do you see many spiders?
