Since my daughter is a child that could always use a good calming down, I got out all the art supplies and the kids and I sat at the picnic table and colored.The process worked on her. She was calm and (relatively) quiet as we colored. I really need to get more of these books.
*My latest Freecycle acquisition is this picnic basket:Check out the inside:The basket is in pristine condition and I can't wait to take it to the park filled with goodies. The gal I got it from was so very cool. ( I always seem to meet all these groovy chicks right before they move out of state.)
*Have I ever mentioned here how much I hate the band The Eagles? When I was little my father was a fan of them and whenever we would go anywhere in his truck we had to listen to the Eagles. I was scared to death of the cassette cover with that strange eagle skull thing on it:Plus, as far as I'm concerned, the song Hotel California is just nightmare inducing. You can check out anytime you like.....but you can NEVER LEAVE.
Besides The Eagles, the only other type of music my dad listened to was country music in spanish. So, yeah.....I guess The Eagles suck a little less than that. A little.
*In case you are wondering, I never did find the library book. It appears I'm going to owe the Alachua County Public Library System $6.99.
