On Thursdays a group of friends link up on LeeAnna’s blog, Not Afraid of Color to share lists of things that bring them joy and happiness.
I love reading and listening to audiobooks and the fact that I was able to sign up for a new library card on line had me doing a happy dance since we are in lockdown mode. I’m making lists of books when any of my blogger friends post recommendations and already have 4 books on the reserve list.
With being back in lockdown, concerns over friends and family that are waiting for Covid test results and saying goodbye to our fur baby, this hasn’t been an easy week. It’s hard work trying to be positive right now.
I like having my hop project finished except for the binding and writing my post. I had fun playing with several fabrics from this pile:
I love the diary my sons and their wives keep, recording funny, quirky things my grandchildren say. This week one of my granddaughters had an issue with art classes.
Quote from Charlotte:
“Mom, I don’t like art at school! They show you what to do and then tell you what you have to use to make it. That’s NOT art! You should be able to create what you want, how you want! I mean, it’s supposed to be YOUR creation. I don’t get it!”
- Charlotte – age 8
In case you hadn’t guessed, my DIL has encouraged the girls to play with art and craft supplies (and yes, they have had sewing lessons, too!) from the time they could hold things. The girls are also encouraged to think and express those thoughts. All in all they are pretty independent already!
Here is my weekly Clarke photo to make you smile.😉
I’d like to wish all of my American family and friends a safe and Happy Thanksgiving. May your day be filled with laughter, joy and great food. 🍗🥧
Do pop over to LeeAnna’s blog to see what everyone is sharing this week. Thank you for visiting. Please stay safe safe, stay well and remain calm. 😷 Carol
