Well, the summer is going pretty well.
I dont think I have mentioned this before (but I may have). We have been watching a fun video series- Road to Avonlea. We get the DVD's from the library and have been watching season by season.
They are nice because:
1. We can watch them whenever we get a chance (after we get our chores done).
2. Brilyn can can understand them (mostly).
3. They don't give her nightmares (although Aunt Hettie is a little scary).
4. They allow me to maintain my (possibly unhealthy) addiction to anything connected with Anne.
Okay cool, so when I was looking up the link to give you for this TV series, I saw that they just made a prequel movie Anne of Green Gables: A New Beginning. Let's hope it is as good as the book prequel by Budge Wilson.
Just a reminder, if anyone would like to go the the Anne of Green Gables picnic with me at Present Tense Book Store in Batavia, it is on Saturday, August 16th, at 1 pm. We need to RSVP by August 9 if we want to attend.
Okay, enough about Anne for now.
I found some GREAT goat milk soap at the new Farmer's Market in LeRoy. It will be every Saturday from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. It's nice, but not very big yet. But, judging by the turnout, it will probably grow to be big and famous. Anyway, about the soap, it's from Harper Hill Farm in Darien and works so nicely. Ah, my face is so happy that I am not putting salicylic acid on it everyday anymore.
And lastly, I would like to make a rag rug for my NEW kitchen floor (that's a story for it's own post). So, if you have any old flannel sheets, shirts, nightgowns, etc. please pass them down to me. Thanks in advance to anyone who can help me with that.
Here's a rag rug in case any of you don't know what I am talking about.
Okay, I'll tell the floor story and update you on my flourishing garden next time, I have to go work in the garden before my kids wake up.
