Yesterday was busy but wonderful. I had an errand to run and on the spur of the moment I met my younger sister for lunch at the Country Cat. More about that later. She gave me an old globe that she thought the boys might enjoy. Funny thing is I've always wanted a globe but never got one. I love geography, different countries and adventure. I will be following my sister on a trip to New Zealand that she begins next week. I will be able to show the boys where she is going.
An obligatory photo of my beloved Hibiscus with this bloom -- did you know this flower only lasts one day? So when there is one, I stop and admire it's beauty.
Last evening was a musical program at school.. the theme was "Where The Wild Things Are" written by Maurice Sendak. The performers were from Kindergarten and 1st grade. Do you see our little Hayden? Caleb had to stay home with a cold.
Their music teacher did very well at keeping everyone moving along and on track.
I was particularly impressed with this wonderful backdrop created by some of the parents.
The children made these cute decorations that were mounted all across the stage and up the sides.
I love this shot of all the earnest little faces singing.
The children obviously enjoyed themselves during the half hour program.
Rewind to the middle of the day and our lunch at Country Cat - they were on "Diners, Drive-ins and Dives" a fun Food Network show. We had crispy fried chicken, a salad and Toasted Pecan Spoon Bread.
After lunch we checked out a few of the fun shops in the neighborhood. We went into La Bouffe Gournet international grocery and I was fascinated by the unique pasta - I will bet this one is dyed with octopus ink..
This one I loved.. but didn't buy.. but isn't this the most beautiful pasta EVER?
Outside of the grocery was this amazing aroma and pretty black berries, they had 4 pots of this plant which I'd never seen. It's a Sarcococca - also known as Christmas Box or Sweet Box.
After 3 trips to town it was a busy day. In the evening I made some Valentines.. I'll show you those another day. Do you send Valentines? ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
