A Friday in March

March 9, 2018 @ 9:20 am | Filed under:

Good morning! On my list today:

* a long walk
* Journey North Mystery Class
* Moomins and other readalouds
* poetry teatime
* German lesson
* painting lesson
* writing the next chunk of a BraveWriter Arrow
* ordering books to be sold at the VaHomeschoolers Conference I’ll be speaking at in a couple of weeks
* taxes, mutter mutter
* A bit of work on the current novel and oh dear there are about fifteen other things I should add to this list but let’s be reasonable. There are clouds to watch sail by.

Re my Portland pics on Instagram: Sometimes I worry they could be annoying to my dear San Diego friends but then I remember I did the same thing (only it was here on the blog, back then) in 2006 when we moved to California and I worried I was bumming out my Virginia friends with all the PACIFIC OCEAN-PALM TREES-NO MORE WRESTLING WITH CARSEAT BUCKLES OVER SNOWSUITS rhapsodizing…

…and before that I worried about my NYC friends when I moved to Virginia and went crazy over the Blue Ridge Mountains and redbud trees and monarch butterflies and fields of chicory like patches of sky in a meadow.

Then I remember that Anne Shirley loved Four Winds every bit as fervently as Avonlea. Hearts are big, with many rooms.

    I can speak for the New York friends and say, “Please keep the photos coming!”

    Of course your photos aren’t bothersome! You are blooming where you’ve been planted, and it is a delight to witness your joy on discovering the beauties of your new home. Beauty resides in every day, it is a gift to be able to stop, ponder, take note, share. xox

    What they said (points upwards). I need your beautiful photos to get me through until things bloom here in VT. Plus, I love sky photos all the time. So thanks, and keep ’em comic’ – please!!! xoxo
