Hello from foggy Thomas Run. Everything is at a whisper around here, inside and out. The fog makes everything quiet outside. Inside, this round of colds has me almost completely without a voice this morning. Only slightly panic-inducing (understatement), since I have to sing at a funeral tomorrow morning. And whispering with four children isn't very effective. As I croaked to my mother on the phone this morning, she recommended whiskey, hot water, honey and citrus--a hot toddy.
But, thankfully it doesn't take a literal voice to write a blog post, just a figurative one. And since it's been awhile since I've rounded up some good things from around the web....Here's what I'm pinning these days:
❉ Maybe this will clear my sinuses
❉ I will be the cool aunt who shows up with this for post-turkey play. (Usually, we have family wrestling matches. Oh yes, we do. But my mother may appreciate this slightly less violent activity. I'm seeing some family v. family matches ahead.)
❉ I am all OVER this. Where's my cheese grater?
❉ I used to make salt dough ornaments with my 3rd grade students. But I'm digging this upscale version.
❉ I want these badly. But alas, I am a poor girl. (I welcome any comfortable every day shoe suggestions in the comments. My Danskos are dying.)
❉ This is an important skill every girl should have.
❉ I have some small fabric scraps that I cherish for various reasons. Maybe this is an idea.
❉ Some people want a maid. Me? I want a personal knitter. This is the first thing I'd send her.
❉ With four girls, I must master this simple skill.
Alright. We have a lot on the to-do list today despite the fact that we're all dragging...There's guinea pig food to purchase. Tights to find for my dress tomorrow. (How do we feel about tights and open toe shoes? Is this cool now? Or totally ugly?), A photo walk to take for Emma's e-course. And ironically, library books to return.
Happy, foggy Thursday! ( I whispered that.)
