  1. Language would be so boring without idioms. It was my favourite thing to teach students learning English as a second language. Erma Bombeck was so funny.

  2. Summer has been hectic, before our next guests arrive I need to get my ducks in a row. gcr

  3. Ruth, this reminds me of when and my grandmother and I used to pick cherries when I was younger. I love the way the cherries and the homemade knit item match. Beautiful contrast. I have been eating a lot of cherries this summer, they have been better than usual. The taste is like no other. Again, love the photo.
    Best wishes,
