|Friday was a lot of fun! Look at all the new middle school kids and their families! My first week was perfect! Yes, the air conditioning is fixed and I can wear cardigans!|
Because of generous friends and two used book companies, I am acquiring quite a bit of Elizabeth Goudge. I must admit that my first taste of EG writing did not "jive" with my quick reading brain. I kept trying. Now, I really believe that reading Elizabeth Goudge has made me a better reader. The Little White Horse is delightful. I know many of you know that. The White Witch was also a thoroughly enjoyable read. There are treasures in this kind of writing. I could say more, more, more. I'll stop.
This is just my kind of knitting book - stories. Patterns, too.
The grands like my new watch. I bought it at the quilt shop. It's very gaudy. Sorry about the bad photos! I was in the car with Bill.
Today we went to see these silly geese. Aria was napping. We played Mother May I? We played Simon Says. Cadence said, "Can you do a handstand?" My response, "Nope. Too fat." I might try though, so I can surprise her next time.
|Just so you know, another Wind in the Willows blog party is brewing. I think you'll like it. How can you not like Mr. Badger in his sassy coat?|
And I know it's kind of dumb, but I like to take pictures of the flowers at the grocery store. Aren't they lovely? I didn't buy any, but I'd like to try to make some posies.
