The greatest gifts we can give our children are the roots of responsibility and the wings of independence.
I don't know why this verse comes to mind whenever I see the roots of trees, but it does. My parents have certainly given me these "gifts" I wish sometimes they hadn't, the old wings are in need of a overhaul, and sometime you'd just like to say "to Hell with the responsibility, it's not my problem". But, being who they were, this is who I am. This photo was taken by me (with my crappy camera) at The Ancaster Old Mill. We recently had taken our guests for Sunday Brunch and enjoyed the scenery afterwards.
I don't know what I did this week, other than a very little bit of geography for a job that I may or may not be doing in the next few months, I didn't even finish my laundry/ironing. I was thinking the other day, I haven't even baked this week, so at 9p.m. I baked a cake. I can tell you visions of chocolate swirl cake danced in my head as I slept.
I read the review for Thirst on Shonna's web page Canadian Book Worm. Thoroughly enjoyed this one.
And then I'm on to Skippy Dies, not sure where this one is going but it is consuming me entirely. Better be a "big bang" ending. Jenners recommendation usually are. I won't review either of these books at any length since I will never do a better job than these two awesome book ladies.
I'm halfway finished my mailbox, but that's another post. And the most disappointing bit of news this week is, we've been kicked out of the school board. So my upholstery class won't happen any time soon since, the school board in it's infinite wisdom, thinks we're making too much money and they want a piece of the action. Who knows where this will go, I've got a full piece taken apart and sitting in my living room waiting. I think my boy and I'll have to visit Atlas tools. (new machines). I liked being at the studio with everyone else, it's inspiring and we share equipment that would otherwise and will otherwise be sitting and getting rusty. Nasty, nasty unions. How disappointing.
