Crocus

A picture of my crocus from yesterday.  It was warm and sunny.  Beautiful!  It started out really foggy this morning, but got nice again this afternoon.  I spent an hour or so out in the yard yesterday.  Got some more trash out of the flower beds, and picked up some sticks, etc. out of the yard.  It was so pleasant. 

Sounds like we are in for a change.  My hubby has been down in Texas with our daughter and her family this week, but when he heard the weather forecast for this weekend, he decided to head for home.  I have been doing a pretty good job of keeping the fire going, but it is hard when I'm gone all day. 

On Tuesday I went down to the city to go to the movies with another daughter and her kids who were out of school on spring break.  We went to see Alice in Wonderland.  Good movie.  I hadn't seen the original or read the book, so I didn't know exactly what to expect.  We didn't see the 3D version, because it gives both my daugher and me a headache.  It would have been neat to see the butterfly come out into the audience at the end.  The girl who plays Alice is very good, and the Mad Hatter is terrific, too. 

Bed time again already.  Where does time go, anyway?

    How does one not read Alice in Wonderland in childhood?!

  2. I don't know. Alice isn't the only book that I didn't read as a child. I know. I'm culturally deprived! As a child, I couldn't read or watch anything that was the least bit scary. I had nightmares the way it was. That may be why I missed a lot of classics.

    CbD – I don't buy it. There are plenty of books that don't arouse dark imaginings. Many many inspire, tickle and delight the imagination.

  4. It's not that I didn't read. I read at least one book every week for years, but I missed a lot of the classics, for some reason. I even read Andersonville, and most of Carl Sandburg's books on Lincoln.
