Our little world

Our two dimensional world

I sang "The Itsy Bitsy Spider" to Mo yesterday. At the end she said, "Waterspout scary." I asked her, "Why is the waterspout scary?" She said, "Spider on it." Makes perfect sense.

She knows the words to songs but won't sing them outright. Although I can play fill-in-the-blanks with her. I sing, "Twinkle twinkle little...," and she sings, "Star!" And so on.

Fresh corn on the cob

We have been eating dinner on the deck. This reminds me of when I was little. We ate outside or on the screened porch as often as we could. And the sweet corn this summer is out of this world good.

Simple machines for a rainy day

The painter is starting work on the basement this morning. There is light at the end of the tunnel.

And thank you for the nice, long, newsy letter! We enjoyed it immensely. I have started writing back to you on several different notepads... Hopefully we'll get your birthday package in the mail by Monday. Late as usual. <3
