• Here’s a sticky-note for my gift ideas roundup, now that my post office story has pushed it a mile down the page.
• Got a nice shout-out from the awesome Mia Wenjen at Pragmatic Mom, whom I had the pleasure of meeting at KidlitCon. We connected over our mutual love for Betsy-Tacy and All-of-a-Kind Family. Mia’s right; All-of-a-Kind is another golden series that deserves some time in the spotlight. I love those girls!
Rose is inspired, too. She showed me a poem yesterday, adding shyly, “You can post it for Poetry Friday if you like.”
I do like, my sweet.
The bank in summer is always green,
While in winter it’s a glistening white.
Spring, it attains a dew kissed mint,
And fall, it glories with amber sight.
So throughout the year, it is oft diff’rent
Color, each morn and night.
Such color, such beauty,
It is always filled with stunning light.
Poetry Friday is at Jama Rattigan’s Alphabet Soup this week.
One thing made me cheer, one thing made me weep
