our local outdoor skating rink is made of Teflon, so we won't have to cancel our homeschool group outing for the week.
Anyway, here is a photo of my front yard looking toward my east neighbor. I fully expect the lawn to be mostly green again by next Wednesday.
Inspired by a little-known picture book from the pen of Bethany Tudor, this is a diary, of sorts, where I document some of my thoughts, activities, and ideas as I explore the challenges met by the characters in the story: hard work, the care and nurture of others, housekeeping skills, life changes, charity, community, and cooperation, among others. Like Samuel and Samantha, the ducks in the tale, I struggle and succeed, cope and celebrate, work and play, handling the tasks that come my way. I invite you to join me on my journey.
