Sometimes horses have to rest. Look at Miss Bug with her baby. She carries her baby around everywhere she goes. Birdie started preschool today. She said the boys were wild and that Mrs. Wise's hair is just like Gran's!
I DID make the scones. I used the package mix but added whole milk, butter, and almond extract. They were melt in your mouth good! Mags commented, "Bake the scones!" so I felt I must. I sent her this photo on Facebook and then . . . I ate them.
So here is what I'm thinking about . . . at school we've been talking about literary elements. First, we are discussing setting. As I was researching (trying to get smarter!) I learned that when writers choose their setting, they create a set of rules for the story. Frances, you can tell me if this is true, by the way. So I began thinking of rules and the rules that are specific to my life just now. Do you want to read a few? Okay. One rule right now is about eating: If I cannot choose WHAT I eat, I will eat a very small portion of the food I am given. Here's another rule: When I walk out of my classroom at the end of the day, I shall turn around and give it a sweeping glance before I lock the door and go home. I will say, "Thank you, God, for filling this room and keeping me in line. Thank you for the precious ones who spent time here today." Do you have some rules that others might find helpful? I am realizing that a lot of my rules have to do with shallow things. Yikes. I might need to create a little list of rules that could have a bigger impact on my day to day story. I don't mean "guilt" rules or "200 lashes with a wet noodle" rules. I mean personal and creative rules that set up your life and govern your actions. Any ideas?
