Random Thoughts

Nutmeg's ballet recital was Saturday. I was a backstage mom. Nutmeg had just turned three at her first rectial, so I signed up. Now she thinks I always need to be there! The next picture is the view off my front porch this morning. It is prettier in person. The third picture is my spanish lavendar doing some crazy dance of its own. I am blogging now because I refuse to be in the same room with Nutmeg when she is drawing for her notebook. We use the Draw! Write! Now! books because they have been matching up to our science units and Nutmeg likes them - after she is finished with a drawing. Before she draws, she whines and cries and tells me she cannot do it. Then afterward, she is all smiles. I told her that must be part of her creative process. Well, I don't care to witness it. She can do it alone if it is essential to her art.

What a gorgeous view!! The dance costumes are very pretty too. I was in ballet when I was younger, but we never had pretty costumes like that.

Lovely!!! Oh, I loved ballet days.

By the way - the Jane Austen verse on the magazine design is from a letter Jane wrote in May 1811 from Chawton.
