(Check on Mr. Badger! He's singing British songs and playing with party poppers at Kezzie's!)Here's another great old read from my youth! Smile! Have any of you read this? My sister-in-law introduced it to me and I loved it from the start. The two authors really delve into all the happy aspects of motherhood. I like the buoyant way they approach the order of a mother's day. I'm going to dig in and enjoy it again and remember how interesting it was to mother our kids.
My friend Reve gave me two fun books for my birthday!
The last few days have been VERY warm and I have been telling myself, "It's late September. It's late September. It is NOT too hot to walk the neighborhood streets." It sort of works.
The men are digging a new water line down at the park.
There is a squirrel that comes right up to our picture window and stares at us. Bill captured him yesterday.
Yesterday I went to Jeff and Christie's to make pickles. Jeff is a serious pickle-maker! He let me taste one of his ginger pickles (from a previous pickle-making day) and YUM! It was SO good! Ginger pickle is a lovely little term, isn't it?
I'm so jealous that a barred owl perched in my brother Dan's tree! They have a lovely woodsy garden up in Washington. Isn't this a sight to see? He put in on Facebook.
Kelli gave me this delightful set of flashcards. I know! I had no idea that fairies appeared on flashcards! SO CUTE!
And Jenny gave me my favorite toys! PENS and PENCILS!
Christie and Jeff gave me FUN paper products! I'm thrilled! We are going to have a tea party soon! I found my favorite scone mix at the grocery and I bought two boxes.
Kelli gave me the teapot and teacup above. Aw! They KNOW me. Reve found the delightful little skeins of yarn. They are tiny and perfect. What shall I make?
Bill's roses are still going strong. They smell rich and delicious.
Reve wrapped the books in this cute calico. Isn't it a fun color combination?
I'm still coloring a tiny bit. It's fun!
I'm off for a walk with a friend. We'll meet at the trail and view the leaves. After that we'll pop into the closest Starbucks. James is getting his hair cut today so Christie will bring him over. I'll take a picture of the big boy!
Oh yay! It's Monday! Mondays are high and happy! Happy Monday to YOU!
