Yes, we've redecorated for spring here at Casa Magpie. MonkeyBoy helped me make a new header from one of yesterday's photos. That boy is brilliant. I told him what I wanted and he managed it in just a few minutes while I just stared.

Both boys are completely self-taught when it comes to software and they can manage complex applications like Flash with complete ease. Meanwhile, The Dark Lord is forced to sit through painful sessions on Microsoft Office for complete beginners as part of his required Future Focus class. Why they can't test out of such mind-numbing classes is beyond me.

I could go on and on about my boy's high school experience but I think I'll drop it for now and think of more pleasant things like the year's first bike ride tomorrow. I'm badly out of shape and hoping my cycling companion doesn't leave me in the dust.

It looks very happy and springlike! I too rely on my younger and more computer-savy family members for dealing with anything the least bit technical. Like recording a DVD.

You didn't look left in the dust when I saw you this afternoon, biking through our neighborhood! I was impressed you were so far from home on your bike. I'll have to get on mine one of these beautiful days!

I like the look of Spring here. I've been contemplating mine as well, but I really like that lavender and brown, so it will probably stay. Happy new week!
