I've been listening to a song called The White Cliffs of Dover by Vera Lynn.
It's a Beautiful song but why write a song about them during WWII? They even made movie about them.
Wikipedia says "The white cliffs of Dover are cliffs which form part of the Britsh coastline facing the Strait of Dover and Frace. The cliffs are part of the North Downs formation. The cliff face, which reaches up to 106 metres high(a little less than 350 feet), owes its striking façade to its composition of chalk(pure white calcium carbonate) accentuated by streaks of black flint. The cliffs spread east and west from the town of Dover in the county of Kent, an ancient and still important English port.
The cliffs have great symbolic value for Britain because they face towards Continental Europe across the narrowest part of the English Channel, where invasions have historically threatened and against which the cliffs form a symbolic guard. Because crossing at Dover was the primary route to the continent before air travel, the white line of cliffs also formed the first (or last) sight of the UK for travellers."

I love his dimpled hands...
Ethan says, "The kittens have...like, they are really silly, because they always get on the tire of my wheelbarrow and slide off, like a little slide. When ever I come out of the garage Shark always walks to me, all the way to where I am. "
Shark is the gray cat. Ethan thinks Shark is a boy.
Sunny is the yellow. We think Sunny is a girl.

I'm trying to decide what to make for snack for my Bradley class. Last week I brought banana bread and everyone loved it. I really want to make something yummy again. I don't have a muffin pan or I would make morning glory muffins. They are supossed to be very healthy. And since Bradley is all about nutrition I thought they would be appropiate.
I was also thinking about making Pumpkin whoopie pies with cream cheese icing. I'm worried that it too early in the year for pumpkin but then I ask myself if I even care. I think I'm probably over analyzing... What do you think?
Today is our shopping day. Aubrey and I nicknamed our shopping trip "waldi." I never could understand how my mom got tired of shopping at the same stores all the time. I do now. I sometimes live a little wild and go to different Walmarts.
Aubrey has been working on some sewing projects. Ethan is cutting up my grocery adds. He keeps showing me all the junk food I should buy. Ethan says..."not all junkfood, some nutrition..." Okay, lets see Capri Sun..no...FrootLoops...no....water bottles...yes...skittles/starburst..no...hamburger helper...questionable....marshmellows...I don't even think so...fruit snacks...onion dip...cat food...sweet tea....silly kid.
I'm trying so hard not to go back to bed....
Oh, I am so tempted.... I'm listening to Patsy Cline's, I Fall to Pieces...but all I can think about is falling back in my bed....falling to sleep.
