I invite you all ages 6-12 to join me for a book club. It is easy and fun. Stop by for an hour. Parents are welcome. We are getting this new program off the ground and I want you to stop by. Since it is dairy month in June and gardening all summer,
I want to keep with the dairy and farming theme for younger participants, and I will find something else for the older readers. Our next meeting is on Wednesday, July 15th at 4PM. I will remind you with posters and more information. If you want to share ideas, just e-mail me at the library. Find a book to read and talk about. Tell me if you like it. Tell me why.
It is good to have a book at your side for a rainy day. I know many of you will be attending camps and playing sports. I would enjoy hearing about your summer adventures.
Check out all the other groups and ideas the library has to offer! Books, board games, knitting, more books, videos, CDs, big print books, children’s activities and computer time. And, so much more.
I have been with family the last couple of weeks and honing my ‘travelin’ writing skills. At times life challenges us to stay balanced and on days that I can’t stay that way I fear I may go mad. Faith, laughter, friends and music help me to breathe through it. And of course, nature around me. These are from Pittsburgh, PA.
I celebrated the warm weather yesterday by throwing open those windows and I went out to survey the greenery around my little space. Definitely a little elbow grease will be in order along with those never-ending lists. I have seeds on order and making animal decisions. Chicks and a couple of sheep? Neither? Just a couple of hens for eggs?
As I wandered I realized I will need to get some ‘tree people’ in here as I don’t have a chain saw and don’t climb on ladders. My arms can tell I raked and with the combination of the sun, the outside air and hearing some great blues music last night, it was really a great way to celebrate the season. With an open window I heard birds this morning calling me up for another day and that first cup of coffee.
I fall a lot. I am clumsy. I also see a great nurse practitioner who has gently and now strongly encourages me to drop weight and get moving again to strengthen the damaged and undamaged parts of me.
Without going in to personal detail, I told her I wanted to go hiking this fall in the West and hoped by then I had met a great new hiking partner/boyfriend/soul mate along the way. The travels could be even more adventurous!
So, she asks me if I have a plan. I give her details of my low dairy and non sugar diet with juicing once a week and my work out details.
She smiles and says, “No, I meant have you joined one of those dating places or something?”
I told her, ‘no’…that I just keep quoting Jackson Browne. “looking for a lover that won’t blow my cover..(he’s ) so hard to find”….
