Pretty, Happy, Funny, Real: March 14, 2013

round button chicken
I've finally realized that one of the problems with this phfr is that I find it exceptionally difficult to separate "funny" from "real" for the most part.


Lucia tackled Teddy around the waist, and they started spinning around and around in giggles, with Teddy growling, "I love you."


Came back from the doctor in Iowa City, and Lucia's patching is working. She'll be getting glasses, and we'll still patch the good eye (to strengthen the weaker), but she might not need surgery!

Behind the couch.
Two socks, a card, a hammer and nail, a book and collection of bracelets. It may not be poetry, but it scans well.
"Real" in the past week has encompassed getting my ear drops spilled onto the bed by a certain someone, requiring a change of sheets and calling in a refill. My mother's flight home was delayed by two hours, so rather than get to her airport at midnight (her house is still about an hour's drive away), we invited her to stay the night. She came downstairs in the wee hours with poor, smelly Lucia who was the first of us to get a stomach bug.

So here's a couple of pictures from Timmo's baptism on March 2. You can't get more real than a sacrament, after all.
Prepared for illumination...
The newly illumined with priests, parents (all of them, now), and siblings!
