My girly Scout always has a fun trick up her sleeve. Here's the latest: let's take a virtual field trip to visit all our blogfriends. On Sunday morning, post a picture of your backyard, or your favorite part of your crib (I spent a lot of years living sans backyard. My little 3' x 7' balcony rocked my world for years). I'll plan to take the field trip while I sip my coffee in my backyard (it's been in the 70s in NM. The big advantage over NY), so post early!
On my "old" blog I posted a contest: Name Miss Lendrum, My Wheel. So far, the entries include Charlotte, Wanda (gotta say it like a New Yorker), Twisted Sister, Aurora and Minerva (INMA30, I might need contact info!), Louisa or Louina, and Wilhelmina. The prize? A skein of funky yarn from my former LYS in Irvington, NY. You've seen the ads. You've seen the yarn van.
I'm listening to Johnny Cash while I write. Don't you wish there was going to be one more album from him? I miss the Man in Black.
I'm reading a story at the Southwest Symposium on Saturday, but I haven't decided which one. I'd better get cracking on that decision! I'm excited to teach today, too. I'm copying a lesson from Greg Martin. I"m teaching Leonardo the Terrible Monster. Yes, I'm going to read a children's story to a class of adults. It seems that the idea of story is elusive. Sure, we know about Frietag's Triangle, but putting it into action is sometimes a little tough. Mo Willems has it down perfectly, though. His book makes a fun lesson. Let's hope I don't bomb!
