1: book week will resume next week with 3 more to show and 1 of them up for grabs
(yes indeedy, a give away!)
2: despite waking fretful this morning worrying about the safety of a certain squirrel, recalling my days of being a 'tufty member' (gosh that sounds a little dodgy), i am delighted to report Tufty Squirrel is indeed live and well, 57 years of age and not looking a day over 3!
(i wonder what his secret for eternal youth is)
i fear i have failed my children by not introducing them to Tufty and his pals Willy Weasel and Minnie Mole. i plan to rectify the failure of my mothering skills and today after school we will sit down and become well versed in the ways of Tufty and his wise words.
i will also be sending Our #1 the link so she may swot up on road safety across the pond. just thinking of her living in an urban setting with parked cars lining the streets adds another thing to my list of 'things to worry about Our #1 living in the big world without me'.
3. how wonderful to know folks are taking a stand when it comes to laundry lines in some neighborhoods.
they are campaigning for basic rights to hang out their grundies and such in their own back yards.
i am so excited by this revolution, for indeed i felt the constraints of such rules in our last abode. i am overcome with the urge, despite the low temps, to hang our undies out in support, showing my solidarity for their cause
4. my latest predicament being how to leave the shed and continue my need to crochet little woolly coats for glass jars! can i just say, this predicament has not caused me sleepless nights, perhaps a little pondering before dropping off but not actually tossing and turning, fretting as to how my little jars and moi can continue our bonding on the move.
so thrift store grandness being what it is, i found the perfect solution, vintage Tupperware in all it's granny green glory! gosh just looking at vintage Tupperware washes a wave a nostalgia over me.
my handy dandy little find is perfectly shaped for a few balls of yarn, Mr Hook and a couple of jars on the go. it sits nicely on the seat next to me as i drive where ever i happen to be driving.
when parked it allows me to access my yarn and jar easily without worries or concerns as to my jars safety (gosh this could be one for the Tufty club rules i'm thinking) and best of all i can carry it around in public without random passing strangers thinking me odd.
actually scratch that last bit, anyone seen carrying a Tupperware box full of glass jars and yarn will look odd, but i am thinking it will be 'odd with a bit of granny chic charm' and that my dearest readers is good enough for moi.
she is wishing you the peachiest weekend with perhaps a trip outdoors with some Tupperware yourselves ~ Tif
