“I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.”
-Anne of Green Gables-
I am sad to see October go! It’s been so beautiful here, with only a little rain and lots of sunshine-which is perfect for bike rides and walks from morning till dusk.
I must keep in mind that Anne also said:
“It was November–the month of crimson sunsets, parting birds, deep, sad hymns of the sea, passionate wind-songs in the pines. Anne roamed through the pineland alleys in the park and, as she said, let that great sweeping wind blow the fogs out of her soul.”
My kids have always liked puzzles. Janey really loves “the bears” right now, and we set them up (she does not like the sad faces!) almost every day.
We have so many of the wood Melissa and Doug’s-many of them are of vehicles leftover from the boys.
Just finished this short book, a recommendation from the librarian. It is a story from the South, set in the 1970’s, of a white woman who hires a homeless man to cut her lawn, then seeks justice for him when he is accused of a crime. Well written, thought provoking, beautifully crafted story.
If you have a picky eater it’s a good little lesson. Frances will ONLY eat bread and jam-and eats so much of it, that it doesn’t taste so great anymore. A classic for sure.
These are Janey’s favorite books-all the books about babies! And they were mine also-most especially Little Mommy, which is a good thing because I’ve practically memorized them all.
