The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe

I just finished my 'February' book of the month.  I know, unbelievable, it's still early in the month!  I figure I need some quick reads early in the year so I can get ahead.
I didn't pick The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe just because it was short though.  Our family went to the third movie in the Chronicles of Narnia series over Christmas and I fell in love with Narnia all over again.  When I saw that Holli's books were still on the book shelf, I decided to read them.
There is so much underlying Biblical meaning.  Aslan, The White Witch and her tempting Turkish Delight and forever winter, and the 4 Pevensie children referred to as sons of Adam and daughters of Eve.  Was it C.S. Lewis's intention or was I looking for it and wanted to find it?
Either way, I looked, I found and I loved the read!
On to Prince Caspian.....

Inventory Celebration!

 I just finished my it's by design inventory.  Now we are one step closer to getting ready for tax time.  That is always a big weight lifted off of my shoulders.  Today while I finished up, I watched this weeks episode of Parenthood.  I LOVE that show!  It just may be my all around favorite TV show this season.  It's about, as you can probably guess, the dynamics of family.  I love that you get to see it from all sides, the kids, the young parents, the struggles of being a teenager and the struggles of parenting, all the way to the grandparents who are still parents too!  You ever think of that?  Just because you become a grandparent doesn't mean you don't stop being a parent.  I love how everyone learns from each other on this show and it's not easy.  It pretty much always chokes me up.  This episode ended with a song called Next Time by a guy named Meredith Bragg.  I couldn't find it available yet on itunes.  It looks like it will be coming out later this year.  So for now, click here to listen and enjoy.
