5. This day*
May we walk in Beauty!
* Oh, this day! Early morning, playing paper dolls with Joss. Eight Dolls From Around the World to choose from, three of them boys, and my son chose to play with the the girl from Tahiti with the flowing grass skirt and flowers for her hair. She was my favorite, too, when I was a child. Then art projects with the children, Ellis drawing a schematic for his idea for an electricity generator and Joss drawing intricate tangle-monsters, and then all of us creating layered landscapes.
A calm, quiet afternoon with a dear friend visiting, doing paperwork together at the table like we used to 20+ years ago.
Listening to music from our younger days with the kids. Here’s the playlist:
Michael Jackson’s Beat It
Weird Al’s Eat It
Boy George’s Karma Chameleon
Cyndi Lauper’s Girls Just Wanna Have Fun
The Bee Gees’ Stayin’Alive
The Bee Gees’ How Deep is Your Love (my favorite of the set)
Abba’s Mama Mia
Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody
