Last week when it was still hot enough to want to wear long sleeves under a tee shirt, K asked for George Washington’s breakfast, as laid out in the picture book by Jean Fritz. Only I was out of cornmeal, so Continue reading Last week it was cold – not today
Dan calculated that today at dinner, I will have been married to him for half of my life. It seems incredible that I picked so well when I was so young – it pays off to listen to your adults Continue reading Works in Progress
