Good morning! I hope all of you are well and the sun is shining where you are. I know for part of America, there are wildfires and floods. I hope if you reside in those places, you are safe.
I think I might be one of the few Americans that stayed up last night and watched the voting in Scotland. I am pleased that they voted to stay. I read there are promises that are to be carried out and I hope that they happen.
What do you think would happen if some of the states wanted to break away from the United States? Would it ever happen? I'm not sure if I would want to be witness to it happening. I think that there would be much violence and it would become a great hardship on the people that lived there. In a country that has been trying to convert to the metric system since I have been alive, I think that breaking away would never happen.
Changes are happening in our little home. Next Friday will be Laura's last day in public school. We have thought long and hard about it and she will be finishing her high school years online. She hadn't been in public school until grade 7 and while she is getting all A's, the stress it puts on her and the inability to actually concentrate in a room full of talking people is really starting to make her anxiety worse. Off the scales worse. So, once again, she will delve into the home-schooling experience. She is really happy about this and she will be able to take more classes than at her school, which is a very good school.
Not much is planned for us this weekend. I will start making hats and scarves today when my yarn is delivered! I love getting new yarn! It makes me so happy! This is going to be burgundy and gold. Laura and her boyfriend love The Game of Thrones and these are the Lassiter House colours. Hope I got that right. I don't watch it and do get corrected when I get things wrong :)
I am going to leave you with a quote from one of my favourite Mary Englebreit drawings. Seeing that all of Miss Englebreit's drawings are not to be used anywhere else, I will not be able to show it to you. The quote is from Brenda Ueland, who was a journalist, writer and teacher of writing.
If I did not have torn pants, orthopedic shoes, frantic disheveled hair, that is to say, if did not tone down my beauty, people would go mad. Married men would run amuck.
Google the print. Trust me, the picture is totally me :)
Until next time, many lovely days for you, my friends.
note: that is Lannister House. Knew I had it wrong :)
