I'm fading fast. Long day. The morning was Grandparents and Special Friends Day at school. My 3rd graders performed 12 different puppet shows at 10 minute intervals, having written the scripts and drawn the scenery over the past two weeks since our trip to Williamsburg. Whew. Done.
These earrings were a gift from the parent of a student some years ago. The tarnishing silver seemed appropriate for the morning, and the color for my cool colored clothing, to match my desire for a calm, peaceful day.
I arrived home to discover my son enjoying the movie Zulu as he packed to leave for the summer. Together we watched our favorite scenes from this early Michael Caine film: Zulu warriors and Welsh soldiers singing to each other in challenge and tribute. An early mother's day gift, as my husband pointed out.
Now my daughter Phoebe has arrived safely home from Beach Week with a friend. Time for sleep.
