A Friday in March

March 9, 2018 @ 9:20 am | Filed under: Assorted and Sundry

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.

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

  2. 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

  3. 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

  4. Lol!! I meant keep ’em coming – but hey, keep ’em comic is even better! 🙂 xo
