The Happiest of Birthdays

We’re celebrating my daughter Laura’s birthday today. It’s been an entire happy week of excitement as August first was the arrival of grandson Roy Samuel (weighing in at exactly six pounds) I’ve been fortunate to be here with the family this week.

Happy Birthday, Laura. ❤️ love, Ma

Might be Tree Parasites?

I saw these leaves on the parking lot when I picked up Charlie from Camp. I don’t think they are a good sign but I’m not sure. I tried to identify them. Maybe a blog reader will know.

Do you know what the bumps are under these leaves?

Little Free Library Extraordinaire

Clintonville, Ohio a neighborhood in Columbus. There are wonderful Little free libraries all over and when we walk we see them but this one takes the prize. Take a Book Share a Book. “

“Building community.

Inspiring readers.

Expanding book access.”

What fun with all the Playmobil figures setting the scene
Blank notebooks and pencils, sidewalk chalk and pencil sharpeners all available to take
So creative and inviting

I posted about a Little Free library at the bus stop in Pittsburgh in 2021 and also about the Little Free libraries on a post tiny libraries in 2016
