1. It took a long time to walk to get the paper this morning as T, in her tiny black and pink Docs, wanted to stop and explore everything.
2. After Nursery School and lunch, Jake taught us the next level of Angry Birds with a dragon that flies in and saves the day! At three and three quarters, Jake amazes us with his skill with technology!
3. Autumn leaves, conker collecting, a very well behaved dog and one last Hollyhock.
1 Delightful shopping for first shoes for Tabitha, one next week and Jake needed some too. Interesting that she was only offered pink ones and the ones for Jake were brown and green.
2 On one of the blogs I follow, I found the following beautiful thoughts from a Vietnamese philosopher, Thich Nhat Hanh: “When we walk slowly, in a relaxed way, keeping a light smile on our lips, we feel deeply at ease and can feel our sorrows and anxieties drop away and peace fill our hearts. Anyone can do it. It only takes a little mindfulness and the wish to be happy.” Thank you, Dilip. My dear Kath would have been so pleased to know of this new link with Vietnam and would have loved these thoughts.
3 Jake, 3, helped me buy and then taught me how to play a new version of Angry Birds on my iPad! The computer facility that little people have continues to amaze me!
Bonus pleasing thing for today, just found on the publish page: ” I love words. I love to sing them and speak them and even now, I must admit, I have fallen into the joy of writing them.Anne Rice Me too!
