Do you know about Richard Scarry? I found his enchanting artwork when I was thirteen years old. I was babysitting a neighbor's three year old and when it was time for bed and reading stories, Sally reached for one of his books. I fell in love. Busy Town was full of activity, cute animals, hidden Gold Bugs, tiny cars, and houses full of domestic bliss. This is my kind of happy.
See what I mean? Don't you LOVE the pig in the cozy bed? The horse sporting a snazzy blanket? The GOAT? Oh, I want to scratch the kitty's ears as she snoozes in the laundry basket.
Oh no! A bunny toothache!
I've had some "Granny injuries" this week. I loved holding my little muppet, Aria, on Sunday. My granny arm is pain prone, however.
Over ten years ago, I broke my collar bone at the water slide park and the muscle in my arm near the break often hurts. Oh, and then I have a "ruby slippers" related injury, too. Somehow when I wear my ruby slippers my knee gets irritated. I'm on the mend though, thanks to my rubber shoes and my wrist brace (which somehow helps my arm pain, weird!).
Isn't the human body amazing? The kids at school thought my wrist brace was funny considering my granny injury.
Tonight is parent/teacher conferences. Tomorrow, too.
I like talking to my students' parents. The bonus: Friday off!
I'm looking out at the prettiest pink and blue sky. Gumbo Lily has pretty sky, too. She's lambing now and it's cold up there. Her link is on my sidebar. Go there and read her post today. You'll be very blessed.
Blessings to you ALL around. Richard Scarry's artwork is one of my happy thoughts and I wish you many sweet happy thoughts, too.
May we all soar and smile today.
