5 Things I Loved About Last Week #celebratelu

Ruth Ayres hosts a weekly celebration on her blog.

1. Cats love books too. Whenever I bring a new bag home from the library, Frances and Abby both investigate, sniff, flop, and rub.


And then this happens:

2. We got some excellent fortunes in our fortune cookies this week–absolutely spot on fortunes.

This was mine:


This is my older son’s:


My younger son’s:


3. We finally had some spring weather! I read a wonderful book on the porch with a little canine company:


Now I want every book to be written by Cynthia Lord.

4. I have been enjoying my son’s color combinations. Let’s just say he is not afraid of a little color:

T and sock

T and socks

Especially if one of those colors is hot pink. When I asked if I could take photos of his legs for my blog post, he asked if everybody on the Internet would see them. Everybody, I promised. “What if they think I’m a girl?” So I also promised to make sure everyone on the Internet knows that he is not a girl. (Also, look carefully for a Frances sighting between his knees!)

5. Tomorrow it’s supposed to snow, but today, this is blooming:

  1. I love these fun moments to celebrate. Your son is certainly not afraid of color! How nice that you were able to get outside to read! I am looking forward to getting my hands on that Cynthia Lord book soon. Have a great week!

  2. What a great list of celebrations! My favorite may be the sly sighting of Frances in the picture of the backs of the pink socks and lime green shoes–a mini-cameo of Little Baby, if you will.
    How weird that y’all’s fortunes are so right on.

  3. Your cats are so cute! I never get such wonderful fortunes in my fortune cookies. Cynthia Lord is truly amazing isn’t she? Such a story teller. Bummer about the snow, maybe the forecast will change?

    • He was very disappointed when he got to America and discovered that boys don’t wear a lot of pink. He went through a phase of not wearing it either, but then decided he was going to do what he liked. And now he has started a mini-craze for hot pink in our little corner of South Dakota. Cracks me up to go to sports events in town and find other 5th-grade boys also sporting hot pink knee socks. He also loves the month of October, when the NFL supports Breast Cancer Awareness with lots of pink gear. And I loved Half a Chance–so good!
