Hello! How is this fine January day in your neck of the woods? It's a little chilly here. I have my butterfly wing shawl around my shoulders and last night I took the hot water bottle to bed.
We had parent/teacher conferences in the evening. Whew. Busy.
The other day a little English parcel arrived for me. My friend Lynn (The Sunny Side of the Street) is so kind, so thoughtful, so smart. I told her that I plan on moving into this little toadstool house very soon.
While I was visiting my parents in Arizona I drank some good "mama" coffee. I gave this little coffee set to my mom quite some time ago and she gave it back to me. It's good for granddaughter tea parties and it's good for Pom Pom shelves. Isn't it cute?
Beads and fake wildflower garlands hang in our entry way. Ah, hopes for spring! Isn't it fun to read about friends' garden plans? I like thinking about herbs, sunflowers, hollyhocks, zinnias . . .
We sat on the patio in Phoenix and looked at all the busy birds. Sometimes a cardinal and his wife come to my parents' feeder. He didn't come, but my mother is the loveliest red bird I know. Isn't she bright? I love looking at her. When I visit, I usually give my dad a manicure. We clip and file, making his hands neat. He has the sweetest hands. His fingers are narrow and his nails are perfectly oval. I love holding my dad's hands.
My sister and I had fun together. We talked while falling asleep. It is a privilege to be close to a sister, isn't it?
I'm off to school. Today is the due date of grandchild number eight. Will you join me in prayer for April? I hope her delivery is smooth and safe. Babies. JOY!
Jenny is pregnant! Samantha Rose will have a sibling in September. Nine grandchildren for Bill and I! BLESSED!
Thank you for coming by. I hope your day is sparkly.
