It's FREEZING here (big snow storm . . . blah, blah, blah) so I bought a 5 dollar polka dot tablecloth at the grocery store.
I know. I know. I KNOW. It's winter. I am thankful for blue sky, even on snowy days.
Example: "Mrs. Apple went back to the house to change into her bee clothes. She came out wearing Wellington boots, into which she had tucked the legs of a pair of old trousers, but her skirt came down over the top so you couldn't really see this. She wore a jacket which had once belonged to a postman, buttoned up to her neck, and on her head a felt hat with a wide brim, and a veil which fell down round her face."
You want to read it, don't you? Do you think children like to read cozy stories? Have they been spoiled by Youtube videos, Disney Jr. and toys that come with books? I hope not. I read some of this story to Birdie and she liked it especially when I told her that I like it because of the cozy pictures that form in my head. She is eight, but she still loves to be lifted up by her Uncle Jeff. She loved having her family there to celebrate her birthday. Aw!
Here is our baby who is a wife and mama of Samantha and Plum Cake. Little lamb.
Yes, the cold wind doth blow, but the sunsets are nice.
Here's a little garden sprite to remind us of spring. As if robins and polka dots aren't enough.
