So, what have I been doing the last few days. . . yesterday morning I had a guitar lesson, and last night I was up at church for music practice, so it was a somewhat musical day.
Earlier in the week there were birthday celebrations - and we got Prince Caspian on dvd! We had a ball watching it. We've now seen it about 4 times in two days. The rest of the gang are out in the living room right now, watching it. . . again! BTW, if you like, you could head over to JesusFreakHideout.com: they're currently running a contest, giving away 5 copies of the special 3-disc edition of Prince Caspian.
Someone on the Sense and Sensibility forums recently posted a link to this website -NationalTrustNames.org. For anyone who is even remotely interested in their family history, this is a very interesting resource. You simply type in your surname, and a map of Great Britain will come up, showing whereabouts in Britain people with your surname lived in 1881 (or 1998, depending on which option you select). I entered my surname--my ancestors showed up mostly in and around the Outer Hebrides of Scotland. I then had a great time typing in the surnames of all my friends, finding out where their ancestors came from!! Fun.

Finally, another friend of mine from another forum, Blessed Maidens, mentioned a link to a website that I found very interesting - DressyTresses.com. If you're a long-haired girl like me (I have thick, wavy, [occasionally messy] hair down past my waist!), head over and have a look - there is a blog, and there are some articles written by other long-haired women about caring for long hair. . . a lot of the stuff that they recommend is basically what I've been doing anyway, but I found it edifying and absorbing nonetheless. I often found myself nodding and saying "Yes, that's exactly how I feel about that!" or "I have exactly the same issues with my hair!". . . Looking after long hair is very different than caring for shorter hair - it was nice to read advice and info written by long-haired girls who understand! Also check out some of the great hairstyles - one of these days I'll have to try some of them out on my sisters!
