:Fire Dance for Mother Earth by Hartwig HKD

i was researching something else altogether
and found this photo
on Flickr
(it says it's alright for me to use this)
and this talented person
who i wish i knew
also introduced me to some new music
which I have been trying to find
so i can play it on my CD player
a group called "Fabula"

There is some of them playing 
and now i want to dance

what a good world

Five . . (aka: Dear Nancy . . )

1.  

2. Be obscure clearly. Be wild of tongue in a way we can understand. 
-- E.B. White

3.  My puppy prefers to hang with her mom
than to play with other dogs.
(what a gift)

4.  I took a new-to-me-bus-route this morning.
It worked terrific and will be a great help on some Tuesday Morning 
Story Time Trips.

Playdate

Oh my,  she doesn't look so thrilled with the moment, does she?
Plenty of puppies her size to play with, proper treats, a toy to take home
and this photo:
I can't imagine what she's thinking.

She's glad to be home
sleeping off the excitement


Five . . Because Nancy Inspires Us . . .

(Jayme Goffin is worth the visit . . honest)

3.  My puppy is enjoying "Day Camp" today.  
She tells me i am awesome, finding her a play group.
She is a very Happy Girl.

4.  "My" bank makes me giggle.  
Every few years, 
that specific branch would move approximately two miles west on the same road.
This weekend they officially merge into another bank.
For now they are in the same location, 
but the name, the logo, the colors - all change.

5.  Today the weather is gorgeous,

I suspect I'm the one who got all the giggles . . .

Tuesday Mornings i get to do a tiny tots story time at a terrific independent book store
Last week it rained so hard the street looked like raging rivers 
and 
very few tiny people could get their guardians to brig them in.
This week, i have a super duper attack of spring allergies
which, in itself is kinda funny
because it makes me seem like an exploding story lady,
between sneezes and coughs.
Today I had three books that made the adults grin
I think I enjoyed them more than anyone.

There was a book about a bad robber and his faithful good dog.
By the end of the story they both had new homes.

There was a book based on the video of
"What Does the Fox Say?"
golly, i liked this one a lot.

and
a story about a pet sloth
that made the adults laugh,
the children . . maybe not so much.


I just wanted to share
because I'm still thinking about these stories
yeah, I'm still sneezing
but, I'm happy.

Five - Because We LOVE YOU!!!


1.  I LOVE Nancy - I Hope (with all my heart) - we can have her back.

2.  I just got off the phone with a Brilliant lady at our local city tax office.  
She fixed everything and let me know her family used to attend story time. 
 (sigh of relief and heart full of wonder.)

3.  My TALL Puppy got to attend a Day of Play yesterday.  She is So Happy.

4.  I doubt it's news to anyone.  We have had several days of Expressive (and wet) Weather.


5. Sending Out Stellar Wishes to ALL of YOU.

love & love,
