Sunday Night Ramble . . .

 I don't know the source for this girl & dog
They sure look like storybook creatures

Last week someone asked if I'd consider offering dance lessons
(took it as a compliment)

I've had extra "work" opportunities lately
(if you can consider what i do "work")
Sure am grateful
 
 This is one of my own photos
Seems I take plenty of bench pictures

hmmm . . .

The Wee Heavies (video)

They are performing here soon
on an evening I'll be encouraging
young people to read

my heart is sure happy children learn to read
AND
People sing together like this

Fifty Acres and a Poodle by Jeanne Marie Laskas

“Rarely has a city girl transformed herself into a country goddess with such humor.”
–Rita Mae Brown

Currently Reading:

started reading - didn't want to put it down
making myself do other things so it will last a day or two.
(giggle)

How 'bout you?
got a good summer read to share?


love & love,

Happy Mail

\
Ongoing project -
painting postcards
 sending them to mailboxes
with happy messages

Missed the film when it was in theaters
watched it last night
(video official trailer for the feature film "Loving.")
Wow
There's a lot to think about
I won't get sappy
I was thrilled to see, among the investors
"I absolutely don't care about my looks and I'm so used to them that I wouldn't change a thing. I would end up missing my defects." 
- Colin Firth

pretty sure that's five
love & love,

Roald Dahl

Lots of favorite authors 
has always been one of them

Had the DVD 
"BFG"
When I returned from work this afternoon
spent time in pure bliss

I was taught "Beauty In, Beauty Out"
Pretty sure this film fit the directive.

Hope the author would have been delighted, too.

'The Wedding Plan'

Went to see the first show this morning.
Enjoyed it.  
I'd been waiting for it to get here.

Just a few movies on my "wanna see" list
looks like each of them will visit my favorite small venue.

color me happy.

Maybe you want to know it's in Hebrew with subtitles.
don't want you too surprised


 love & love,

Doing Stuff

(giggle)

Cool stuff occurs at the "reading station." 
Young lady insisted she was not able to read a picture book.
Tapped it with her eraser and claimed two more times . . . 
Have no clue who told her that.
"It's okay, we can read it together,
I'll help."
 

I get excited and begin to read
young lady recognizes words
by the third page
she'd grabbed the book and started reading 
for all the world to hear
using a
LOUD
Happy Voice.

Color me thrilled.

love & love,
-g-

Moana

Oh My Fur & Whiskers!
I ordered this feature film from netflix because so many of my story time families enjoyed it.
Now i feel a tad guilty for watching it at home
because it took so much talent, time, research, effort
SOOOOO Many People

A true cooperative effort.

Beautiful to look at
tells the stories in a well crafted, unique way
gives credit to a massive amount of researchers that helped

me?
enjoying at home
cat in my lap
pupster at my feet?

It feels as if i should have done much more.
at least dressed up

seen it?
what didja think?

love & love,
