I just wanted to take a moment and say " back at'cha" to some of my commenters. I have lovely commenters. Faithful commenters, funny commenters and thought provoking commenters. I love you. But, I'm really and truly bad about commenting back. I really need to improve. But here are some of my replies:
Lorna commented on our blue,blue, blue,sky...and ya, it was INTENSE that day. Just like Wizard of Oz. We live in a fairytale!
And frankly Blanchette is KILLING me (in a good laughter kind of way) in that she is commenting in verse. How perfectly divine! And yes, Blanchette, you were the one to whom I told "I don't 'get' Millay" in that way one does when one doesn't know what one is TALKING ABOUT! And that poem? The Cairn? Vincent is SO advocating homeschool there, don't you think?
One of the best comments was that I looked slightly Lady Diana-ish back in the day. Oh, I love you Urban Mom. That I looked anything but completely sad back in the day,makes me feel good. For a minute. Then I remember the Shaker sweater phase.
Thanks to all who shared their ideas for a name for Ms. D's poem! The winner has been chosen by Ms D who said "Musings of a Tower Flower" by Champagne Fluffyduck (who does not give her website address, for shame!)
Kim and Candy aren't sure what to make of my April 10th Ode, Millay's Spring. It may help to know that my friend and cousin died on that date, and like Millay, she was brutally honest about the facts of death. She, like Millay,was wry, cynical and witty. I throw an Ode her way every April 10th.
And here are a few blogs I've discovered recently, if you get a chance check them out!
The Lazy Organizer (oh, tell it, sister!)
Farm School (check out their star party information!)
An Unschooling Life (okay I haven't just discovered this, but I LOVE LOVE it.)
