I can tell it's going to be hard to leave home this morning. Bill and our Australian house guest left early, Jeff is still sleeping and the minutes are ticking away as I sit in my favorite spot. Can I stay home and play with my crochet hook today? Please?
Look at my little bird! She is no match for this giant polar bear. Last night she was here for a visit and she likes to sit up on Grampy and Gran's bed and watch Scooby. She finds things. She found my basket of "stuff" and a cup of beads. Who doesn't love beads? We slept with all different sizes last night. Birdie likes to dump things.
I'm just wondering if you've purchased your summer hat yet. Have you? I have not. I love Sam's hat. Do any of you know what she might be thinking about? Feel free to smooch her chubby cheeks.
Jeff and I are longing for leaves. It's just sticks here. Aren't these red sticks pretty? It takes a while for the trees to leaf up here in Colorado, but when they do, the soft green leaves create a magnificent canopy.
The kids at school are so smart. They had so much to say about heroes and archetypes yesterday. We sat in a circle and they astounded me with their insight. We went outside fifth period (the struggling readers and writers) and we played a funny game of chase. They feel pressure to be cool but who can be cool when you must hitch up your pants or kick off your flip flops because you are being chased? It's FUN! We went back in and had Otter Pops.
This week has contained minute by minute busyness and I'm feeling it. I'm hoping for a bit of quiet in the near future.
Time to lift off my chair before I'm stuck here. Thank you for stopping in and saying hello. I love it when you do.
