Another neighbor gave me this little pin for Valentine's Day last year. I wear it often. I love heart brooches. I wish I had them in all different sizes. Maybe I should start making some? Purple hearts for heroic friends. Golden hearts for kind friends. Good idea.
Look at the abundance! I'm so thankful that God made apples. What a delicious treat they are, bite after bite. I like how noisy they are, too!
I did go for that Sunday walk. We have "leftover" snow everywhere. I guess it's still pretty nippy outside.
As I was walking, a mother came out to the sidewalk and asked, "Can you do us a favor?"
"Of course!" I said.
Little Cooper was called and this white ball was slipped over his head.
"What is it?" the good "artistic" mother (and the father, too!) asked me.
I hesitated. I'm glad I took my time.
"It's an onion." (I hoped I was right!)
"HOORAY!" they exclaimed!
Cooper will perform in a play. He makes a cute onion. I remember when one of my favorite literary characters, Harriet M. Welsh, played the part of an onion in her school play. Have you read Harriet the Spy lately? It's been a fun and inspiring read for me over and over again.
I've been thinking A LOT about summer. When I was young, I did not like the heat OR the possibility of heavy swimsuit wearing, but now I cherish summer. So, here are a few apricots for you. Don't you love their fuzzy skin? Aren't they a magical color? I like them dried. My mother calls them monkey ears.
Which reminds me . . . it's time to eat my dried plums.
I'm off to school. It's library day. Who doesn't LOVE library day. We'll all be cheery!
Don't forget to pass out a few pats on the back today. Everyone needs them. I hope you get at least one hug and maybe a kiss or two!
Thank you for paying attention to me. I am paying attention to you. Bye!
