Of course, I first need to finish the cleanup from the kersploosh of water that came through our roof this morning. That kind of dampened my enthusiasm for the day (pun intended), but I'm pretty sure all is not lost.

I'm actually planning on going with an entirely different color scheme (mostly pastels), but I am kind of fond of this fella.
