Hello! I've been at my sewing machine, making paper bunting for an event at school. I am not sure why I volunteered to help. This week is so packed with responsibility. YIKES! I'm not that responsible.
It's VERY cold outside. The roads are icy, the temperatures are dipping down. I really don't like the heat blowing in the house. It's like the fans going constantly in the summer. Do you like the Grandma Moses print above? It looks like the perfect temperature. Sigh.
The other day I was showering quickly, getting ready to zip off to school, but I noticed that every water drop on the shower door was reflecting the black and white checks on the bathroom floor. Each little drop, checked and miraculous. It made me feel centered, stilled, and focused.
Birdie is the second ballerina from the right. Yes, she had her own routine in mind. The recital was last June and I had such a nice chuckle while we watched. She embraced the stage, was NOT the least bit frightened, and entertained us in the purest sense. Oh, how I love pink ballerinas. I am going to dig in the ironing basket for something pink to wear to school since old Jack Frost seems to be dictating the weather.
Are you getting ready for Valentine's Day? My Valentine is in New Zealand. I have a dermatologist appointment that day. Oh well, I do think I'll eat chocolate for dinner or maybe buy myself a cherry pie. I've been looking at the gourmet pies but refraining from putting one in my shopping buggy. What treat will you enjoy on Love Day?
I'm a tiny bit droopy and I have a morning meeting (for THE EVENT at school) but I'm going to try to keep my "Ann Face" on all day. I'll keep putting along with the kids at school, go to ANOTHER meeting after school, stop at the fabric store for more bias tape (for the buntings) and the office store for papery things. Oh my goodness. I'm behind. Drat.
There are blue skies ahead and right now I'm tucked safely in our white house with green trim, ready for another hot cup of coffee before venturing out in the winter wonderland that is Denver in February.
I'll take pictures of "the event" on Friday evening. Birdie is having lots of little children over for her 4th birthday this Saturday, too. Pom Pom the Clown might attend. I'll take pictures of THAT, I promise.
Thank you for reading. It's Wednesday you know. Wednesday is such a nice little bump in the week because tomorrow is Thursday and over the course of the week, the students at school mellow. I'm going to start calling Monday "Monkey Monday" because they DO act like monkeys after spending a weekend acting like teenagers (go figure!).
And yes, Frances, lip gloss abounds and the smell of cheap and flowery spray-on fragrances fills the hallways.
I hope you all have a toasty day.
