blog woes and a happy birthday

My blog continues to confound me! My favorite feature - my countdown counter to the book has flown into cyberspace and I don't know what happened to it. Then this morning I see that the little blogroll that used to be at the bottom of the page with a link to Beth Moore's and my writer friend, Ann's, blog has also taken a hiatus. Just goes to show that I need more bloggging education. And my brother and master blogger, Chris, in in Venezuela at the moment. But this is such a silly thing really. I just hopped on over to James A. Thom's website and he is having major problems with someone counterfeiting his latest novel, thus his publisher, Random House, will not proceed with printing. Now that's a problem!

But moving on to tomorrow - Paul's 9th birthday. He's invited a friend over after church and we're taking the boys to the lake to swim. There's a hefty Costco cake in the fridge - white cake, strawberry mousse filling, and cream cheese frosting decorated with an American flag. I think I could eat the whole thing myself!

Paul, sadly, isn't wanting a new violin for his birthday. He told me he wants a new name!! Yes, this was his announcement at breakfast this morning. He says he is tired of his old one. He has a new name picked out, he said, and when he becomes a man he is going to be called that. We are chuckling because this is just like Paul. When I find out what his new name is I will tell you.

Have a wonderful weekend.


  1. Happy Birthday to Paul! I have been crazy busy the last week but now company is gone and kids are gone to Ohio for a week. I will get something in the mail to Paul for his birthday but it will not be a new name, ha! I hope he enjoys his buddy at the lake. :) Hope your blog woes get solved and somehow what disappeared comes back. Have a great day and talk with you soon! :)

  2. Hope everybody enjoyed Paul's birthday. That's the best thing about birthdays. They are fun for the whole family. I mean you're all going to dig into that yummy sounding cake. I know where Paul is with the name thing. I used to wish I had a different name, but with age comes perspective and I'm glad I had loving parents who picked a good, honest name that they could love as they loved me.

    And isn't it always something with computers and the internet? Have you been praying to develop more patience? Then no doubt, the Lord has either blessed you with teenagers or a new computer system.
