it is just coming down in buckets out there
as i sit here in my writing corner composing this post.
harlow did NOT enjoy his walk this morning - my poor wet dog,
i tried to share my umbrella with him but he wouldn't come under with me.
all day today, the weatherman is predicting very fine weather for ducks...
so... i will be puttering indoors today (yay!!!)
and picking up and working on my purple scrap blanket during my little breaks.
i'm still reading we are all completely beside ourselves but have had to put it aside.
i was able to get hold of a copy of camilla gibb's this is happy (previously, i had to return it before finishing the first time i took it out of the library)
this is happy wasn't a very happy book
but i loved it.
i think it is autobiographical, gibb describes a lot of her experiences with depression.
what i enjoyed most about it is how she writes about
her relationship with her filipino nanny.
i was born in the philippines and grew up in canada and my filipino/canadian up bringing always gave me an awkwardness with meeting/being/associating
with women who come to work as nannies.
this book touched on so many issues about caring and caregivers
and did so with such eloquence and honesty.
read it !!!
