1. Here's Uncle Tom with one of his hunting dogs. He sure loved his dogs. He took so many photos of them. His album is full of dog and horse pictures. We probably would've gotten along well, don't you think?
"Where is the North Pole?"
"Really far away"
"Yes, but where"
"It's by Grady's house."
Grady is their cousin. He lives in South Carolina.
3. I read some excellent books last month. My favorite was Necessary Lies by Diane Chamberlain. I'm making the most of regular trips to the library. The library is a magic place. I walk in the doors and instantly feel calmer.
4. I've read article after article lately about the benefits of drinking hot tea. It seems it is all the rage. Who knew it had so many antioxidants? I am trying to put it to practice, but can't seem to do but one mug a day (recommendations are two or more). I've never been much for hot drinks. But I did find a peach/lychee flavor from Sri Lanka (Dilmah) I adore.
5. Pierce's BFF is a little girl. He's been crazy for her the past two years. Recently we let the three boys take a bath in the Jacuzzi tub (one of their favorite things). Apparently, he told his BFF about it. Then came home and said, "Mom, L wants to come over to get in the Jacuzzi with me." It was very interesting....explaining to Pierce why L's mom might not be so happy if he invited her over to hang in the Jacuzzi tub.....
