Busy busy busy

Whew, what a week... This has been such a busy busy busy week for us that I have felt like we are whirling in every direction with nary a moment to rest and rejuvenate and be quiet at home. I am such a homebody; I think sometimes that days when I get to stay at home and putter about with my babies and do some sewing and clash pots together in the kitchen make me happier than the ones when I am out and about. Of course, one cannot always stay at home and never see people. Or at least, one should not. So this week we were the most social version of ourselves and went with various toddler friends to the science museum, the pool, the splash park, and somewhere else that I cannot currently remember. On Tuesday we had people come and do a day's worth of work on our creaky 1953 home to make it more energy efficient in the face of summer's onslaught. We now have 12" of insulation in our attic (instead of 3") and weatherstripping and caulked windows and repaired AC ducts and all sorts of other things. I think I can tell a difference, but it will of course make the most difference in the electricity bills.

And now, for your Friday afternoon pleasure, something which may only be funny to me. In the course of looking for pictures for my birthday post, I found whole albums of pictures from the two years I lived in that apartment with that set of 3 other girls. I found these two pictures there:

These pictures are totally posed. Laura didn't really play the piano, and I don't really sing. What I would like to point out, however, is that we are wearing different clothes. This means that we thought it would be a good idea to set up this silly posed shot on two different occasions. We were such goofs. Happy, nerdy, silly college-girl goofs.

College pictures are so much fun, aren't they?

LOVE it. Especially your expression on the first photo. Hope your electrical bill is happy for you next month! :)
