I think today, i will work on some techniques that i am learning from a new book i purchased; it is about using the idea of picture words. I need to use very concise words that paint a picture for children. This will help them to see, what i see as they read my stories.
First though, I am taking the last child off to school. She looks so cute this morning. I conditioned her long, blonde hair this morning and then i treated her to a warm blow dryer session. When i let her hair dry naturally it takes hours to dry. We usually do her showers at night so she isn’t cold in the mornings. It makes for a happier morning routine.
Then, I am driving to the local BK-drive thru. I am sure that i will grow long, fine leg hairs while my van sits and perfumes the air with white puffs of vapor. I am sure, I will be wasting precious fuel while they get ready to perform the difficult task (it must be difficult as it takes FOREVER 🙂 ) of filling my medium- sized brown, steamy cups of java. I can’t wait to smell the nutty, aroma of the roasted beans. That always pops my heavy, eye lids open early in the morning.
If only i would have had time last night to make that yummy, bananna bread i could have had it with my strong cup of coffee this morning. Ahhh….there is always tomorrow!!!
