//pentatonix | somebody that i used to know

pentatonix, if you don't know, is an a cappella group.   everything that you hear is them vocalizing. 

so good it's bad.

like the kids use it, capeesh?
compare with the original.
there is some bareness in this video. it doesn't actually "show" anything, but there is skin, so.  Now you know.

 this video though, the facial expressions, the body language... it is exceptionally well done.

the sunday six: edition 46 (i went back and did the math)

can you believe it?
i should maybe oughta start thinking about something fun to do for the 50th, since it'll be my GOLDEN anniversary...

please, only monetary gifts.  make all checks payable to cash, and you can rest easy knowing i will very likely spend it all in one place.

probably ross. or maybe hobby lobby.

anyway, let's save that conversation for a later date.  it's a little early to start celebrating.  at my rate it may take 6-10 more weeks to even get there.


we've finally arrived to today's list! 
let's begin.

//1 home schooling this past week marked the end of our school year, so it may be an odd time to add home schooling to the list, (or maybe not) but this week was just one of those times that i could really see this thing.  granted, it is easier to feel the pleasure of it when i'm not in the trenches.
still, i am so thankful that i am able to be home and spend so much time with my littles, and with 3 years of it now under our…

The Sunday Six: Edition: a few of my (for now) favorite things

//1 my half n' half not all half n' half is created equal.
 indeed not. this stuff comes for the cows that God talks about owning, the ones from the "thousand hills".  it's probably been milked by baby angels.
also, it is a fact universally accepted that coffee tastes better from well-loved, ratty cups.
forever and ever, amen. //2 raw sugar the actual product (like when you buy it in the stores) looks like this: i don't bother with the packets, though. i'm a heavy user so i buy the 2lb. "bulk" box.  i can't be trifled with opening so many tedious little packets of not enough sugar when i need my coffee now.  mine looks like this: by the way, that is not the glint of the flash off of my shiny gold spoon (which, now that we're on the subject, is another of my favorite things); no, that glint is the approval of heaven.  it assures me that having so much sugar in my coffee is good for me because it is raw.

{april} 10x10

...and i quote: "This is what 10 on 10 is about: Take a photo every hour for ten consecutive hours on the tenth of each month. Document a day of your life and find beauty among the ordinary moments. Then share your beauty with us! "

consecutive.  psh.

before i even set out,  let's let the cat out the bag, shall we?  i did not take photos every hour.  i started at almost 2 in the afternoon so i had to cram.

typically, you're supposed to do this every month.  oh look, do i see another cat wiggling its way out?  i probably won't do this every month.  right now it seems like a good idea and i (sorta) have the time for it.  next month may be another story entire.  (meaning, i will forget about this and therefore be as inconsistent as ever.)

these are snapshots of my day (and night)....  i did not follow the rules (as i am wont to do) so while it is not exhaustive, it is accurate.

it may be here today, gone tomorrow, but it is here today.
-1- when dead things live again happy resurrection sunday.
-2- my new iPhone i, of course, am tardy for the party.  as per The Usual. 
before i had one, i was all meh.  but then i got one and bam! it's my new boyfriend.  i lurve it hard.
-3- the particular refreshment of sweet tea + lemonade arnold palmer would be proud.  
or maybe he would feel robbed that i stole his idea but didn't buy his product.  
-4-  getting my wordsmith email, particularly the A.Word.A.Day portion. here's a little gem i just learned:

MEANING: noun:
1. A fancy dish; delicacy.
2. A trinket.
USAGE: "I assume it's a gloriously handsome affair ... slices of homemade seed cake and other toothsome kickshaws." 
isn't that dandy? you'll be seeing that one again.
-5- stumbleupon have y'all seen this?  probably so. 
it's new to me.  [see exhibit 2]
