Stayed home from church today with a sick boy (Steve's still overseas for a couple more weeks). I'm also pinned to the chair by the neighbor's cat that's asleep on my lap. Well, I know I could knock the cat off but I don't want to, OK?!
I've seen and heard an unusual number of things worth taking the time to look at this week and thought I'd pass them along while I have this unexpected time:

And while I'm at it, here's another declaration! A bit of final joy:
Now I'm getting cuddles from the sick boy. Much better than the cat!
