Making Memories and Missing Marks
Updated: Dec 9, 2020
This last week passed in a blur as I attended a personnel meeting, a levy meeting, and readied for farmers' market. But I savored the weekend. Both gloriously sunny days.
People who had previously stayed home enjoyed the market with us and my vendors had some wonderful things to offer. I especially enjoyed seeing the dog face cookies the daughter of my fruit and vegetable vendor made.
And since it was so beautiful, we hosted an impromptu fajita party for Emily and her friends which I captured on film. I adore taking pictures because it helps me retain the memories we make more clearly. And each time I do, I remember something my father used to say to me, "Make memories while you have time because you aren't promised tomorrow."
And finally, I finished reading a book, won in an online contest, titled Mark Napped. Ellie Sipila is the author, and she does a great job of explaining the use of basic punctuation in the form of a mystery. Comma has been mark napped and the narrator with the help of the reader is trying to find out which of the other punctuation marks has kidnapped him. The adorable illustrations by Christina Brown add to the fun of the story. And believe me when I say Christina did a fantastic job of giving depth and interest to punctuation marks which is an extremely difficult thing to do. So if you have littles that struggle with how to use punctuation marks, this is the book for you!
I hope you enjoyed a brief glimpse into my week as well as my foray into the kidlit world. I also hope to see you here again next Monday.
Wishes for a week full of wonder! Aileen
