Brace yourself, this is a long post because I was in a very picture taking mood! First, I was reading my annotated The Wind in the Willows this morning, so I drew Ratty's house with Mole upstairs in the best bedroom. Oh, it is SO fun to follow their travels. Click on Debbie's post on my sidebar so you can see the fancy digs they are enjoying in Oregon.
I'm such a Susan Branch fan, so I was thrilled that the book selling people at school were selling THIS! It's a recipe/scrapbook. Perfect!
Snap! Snap! Snap!
One reason that I haven't been sketching and doodling much is because my laboratory is a little disheveled! See?
A bit random here, but years ago I bought these plates for Christmas and just recently, the grands have been noticing them. I'm so glad that things I bought for our kids are now being admired by our little people. I KNEW they were a good thing to buy!
I thought you might enjoy a peek at my messy knitting book stash. Some people have yarn stashes. I have book stashes.
Okay, and on with the walking shoes! My friend Ronda and I headed down the trail today.
Look! It's Toad Hall! There are some HUGE houses on our walking route.
This could be Ratty's River (love how KG capitalizes River)!
We go to Starbucks for a gab. Hot cider with carmel squirted in the cup and a chocolate doughnut. Soul food.
Then over to Ronda's to see her new pine beetle eaten patio structure. The pine beetles eat the trees in the Rockies and smart people use the wood for other things.
Ronda takes knitting classes at the local yarn store and LOOK at these beautiful squares she made! Now she is sewing them together.
My sweet sixth graders enjoyed their first dance after school yesterday. Have I told you lately how much I LOVE eleven year olds? Aren't they fantastic?
Tonight we are having clam chowder for dinner. I am getting my taste buds ready for seafood in Maine! I bought a pumpkin cinnamon loaf at the bakery, so we'll have that, too. Fall is tasty! I do love weekends, don't you? Thank you for looking at all the pictures, nice person.
I raise my mug of cider to you. CHEERS!
