Oh my. We have had a wonderful couple of days around the Lady Bird home. My very best friend from high school came to visit for a long weekend which passed far too quickly. We laughed, and cooked, and shopped, and got pedicures, and fell asleep watching movies, and then all of the sudden I needed to drive her to the airport again.
The only book I have read this week is Little House on the Prairie to the girls. We read before nap, and we read before bed. There were many questions, especially about why the Ingalls were afraid of the Indians. I do believe I need to brush up on some of my history. Besides a very basic understanding about how the government kept moving the Indians father and farther west, I don’t think I know many (or any) of the details beyond that. It is a good thing I picked up this book. The Ingalls family is moving on again, and I want to know how Pa is going to build a second house in a year.
While running errands today, I found the color yarn I was looking for so I could begin a gift for someone. Pattern purchased. Now, to begin clickity click!
Is anyone else feeling strange due to the winter we have (or, haven’t) had? The calendar says winter so I want roaring fires and am planning soups for dinner. Yet, for the past few days after nap we have gone out for a walk or bike ride. The girls are begging to play outside. They are hunting up rocks for their new found rock collection. I bought daffodils at Trader Joe’s. They are in our family room, with the fire place and me in my wool socks…..
++ joining in with ginny again this week for the lovely yarn along
