Sharpen Every Pencil in the House for the New Year 1-1-11

A new manual pencil sharpener and left-handed Anna hard at work sharpening every pencil she could find.  I thought of the pencils at home that need some new points to write lists, notes and phone numbers. She needed a sharp pencil to complete her homework. Mary suggested the manual as the electric ones break easily or host a crayon. Nothing like a new can of sharpened pencils to represent possibility.

  1. Thanks for pointing out THE DATE: 01-01-2011. There are going to be several interesting dates this month!!!

  2. “A pencil never meets paper without a point” Thank Anna for her contribution to the meaningfulness of this New Year.

  3. Sorry I’m late, but I’m still on the west coast. Happy and healthy new year to all.

  4. I love the looks on Anna’s face during the entire time it took to sharpen all those pencils. My electric sharpener broke so now I just use pens! Happy New Year to everyone!

  5. A good task to fill some time on a rainy day.
    We have enjoyed the down pours as it gave us an excuse to remain at home all day and relax – cook – take naps. A great schedule for the new year.
