My friend Nana Go Go recommended this coloring book to me so I ordered it. It's a different sort of coloring book in that it has less small spaces to fill in. I like that. I can't get myself to spend hours over a coloring page.
When Plum Cake and I go shopping on Thursday mornings (toys) I like to stroll down the crafty aisle. A few dollars buys cotton yarn for future dishcloths. A lovely pursuit.
Our planting is almost done (a have a few more seed packets to plant - well, MORE than a few). I bought way too many plants (6-packs, 8-packs) and planting was very bendy (ouch) and my boots are now called farty boots because as I tromp around in them they make a farty noise, being rubber and all. Gardening is a lot of work and aches and pains result. I have realized that I am not a fan of getting dirty so that somewhat limits my garden play. Oh well. We do learn about ourselves as we go along, don't we?
We are still smelling the floor finish in our house. Three coats is stinkier. Oh well. I cleared out some of the clutter and when I put things back in different places, all seemed fresher.

I love lobelia. I have a new Gudrun dress that is the color of lobelia. It is sort of a hippie dress but I am going to make the most of 57 year old invisibility and wear it A LOT!
This is the last week of school, so Samantha Rose will finish on Thursday. We went to Millie's preschool graduation yesterday. Each child shared what they'd like to be when they grow up. My favorites included a stay-at-home mom, a king, and a mermaid. Sadly, not one of the children wants to be a teacher. Maybe they are too young to admire teachers and they see their own preschool teachers as second-string mommies.
Seed planting today, lunch with Jenny, dinner with Kelli's brood, and some quiet moments in between. I hope your day holds a few gentle doings. God be with you, nice visitor.
