Hello! Thank you for all your nice words about Sunshine! She has her wicker basket now, a lock, and I have a nice little helmet to protect my brain. I've had what my UK friends call "the lurgy" the last few days. Chills, fever, and an overall draggy feeling. So I really HAVE been "benched" on the sofa. I watched all the films above. Truthfully, I slept through Mary Poppins. I fell asleep just after Mary arrived at Cherry Tree Lane. I'm better today, but still not all that cheery.
I managed some mindless knitting. Isn't the knit stitch beautiful? All those V's? Click. Click. Click.
Kim and I (My Field of Dreams) are going to play a little Anne of Green Gables game this summer. She and I will read a chapter, talk about it (via email) and then do a little activity (short and easy) like finding a Lake of Shining Waters. I read all the Anne books last summer, too. Don't you LOVE Anne?
Thank you to the volunteer sunflowers. In spite of my absence in the garden, they are doing their thing. Yay!
The iris are so ruffled and light and the peonies are JUST ABOUT ready to put on their show.
We look at bare branches all winter, so when the leaves are on the maples, it's such an encouragement.
The reason I like all those movies above is because they take place in small towns (well, not Mary Poppins) and sometimes I go to Flickr and gaze at pictures of my home state. I am really not a big city person, even though I adore the Colorado blue skies and would never move away because of our kids and the grands. Are you a small town person or a big city person?
Oh, my little "for fun" writing exercise for today was "write about something that came in a box". Sunshine's basket came in a box and now that basket will carry my camera and a few groceries. That's really all I had to say about that. I'm still fuzzy headed.
Thank you for popping in!
