Here's how the living room bookshelves look after I arranged the books by color. I think it looks pretty good, but time will tell if I can find the books I'm seeking when they're arranged this way.

We enjoyed our time in Lake Tahoe, while Rachel and Rob attended a wedding. Thomas and I were the early risers, watching birds on the deck.
Thomas enjoyed playing in the sand at the lakeshore.
Here are Eleanor and Rachel dressed up for the wedding.
Eleanor came to visit by herself for a few days, and we had lots of fun together. We made watermelon cookies and rode the train in the park.

This sweater is for a colleague's new baby daughter. The pattern is Mason-Dixon's "Heartbreakingly Cute Baby Kimono," and I used size 5 and 6 needles with Lion Brand Micro Spun in white. I secured the left front with a button at the right seam and used one of the holes along the edge as the buttonhole. This was quick to make -- next time I might try the garter stitch version.

I finally finished this sweater for a colleague's new granddaughter. I used Mission Falls cotton yarn and the Daisy Cardigan pattern from knitty.com. I added the sleeve stripes because I didn't have enough purple, but I think they look cute!
Rachel and her family surprised me by sending these beautiful flowers to my office yesterday for Mother's Day!

We had a great time in Houston with Rachel, Rob, Eleanor, and Thomas. We kept the kids while R&R saw old friends and attended wedding festivities. We also celebrated our 34th anniversary with wonderful takeout from D'Amico's! Here's Eleanor outside the Natural Science Museum.
