A Death...A Birth

Good news, there has been a death.

Bad news:  It wasn't our mouse.

THE GREEN STRIPES HAVE DIED!

And this is why the hubs and I decided to make a fort in our very new and wonderfully green stripe free living room.



I need to change those light-bulbs, eh?


We tried to watch Monsters Inc.  but I fell asleep. Shameful, I know.  It's hard for me to finish any movie that is started after midnight.


We had some wonderful beverages.  Hot hot hot Chocolate and some Welches Bubbly.



Check out those long beautiful legs.  My man could have been a ballerina.


We celebrated our new clean white wall with some Sparkling Red Grape juice.  I could drink an entire bottle of that by my self...in one sitting.  I swear, its a good thing I don't ever drink alcohol, it could be a bad situation.

And now for another fort.

More good news:  There has been a birth.

We have a new child.

Last night, after dinner with our aunt and uncle, John gave me my very first guitar.  She is a classical guitar and is lovely. It was his quite some time ago and has been through a bit as you can see from her 4 strings.


Mr. Murphy and I played our first guitar duet together.  "Slow Dancing in a Burning Room".  Its too hott to share now. (Plus maybe I need some more practice...)





It's such an incredible sensation to feel so connected to an object. My instrument has always been inside of my body because of singing.  Now I am learning how to develop this new talent out side of my body and it is a completely new challenge.  I can't wait to hear all of the things that will come out of this beautiful instrument that is so foreign to me.

AH! I love forts :) I built them all the time when I was little. Congrats for the departure of the green stripes. If you can just get that little mousey outta there it'll be perfect!! And also, congrats on winning the Odds and Ends giveaway! How exciting :)

Becca Jane said...

Oh I just responded to your comment on my blog...on my blog! But I'll say it here too! Slow Dancing is probably my fave jm song...if I HAD to pick...which I'm glad I don't because really, I love them all. Bold as Love is easily my mostest favorite song he plays, but it's not his....it's Jimi's.
