New Plant Magic Goings On

Going to be turning these into teas from High Garden delicious oxymels for summertime "soda" treats.

 When I see the new shipment box from Mountain Rose Herbs 
on my front porch, I do a little happy dance!

And Then There Was One

 Nova has returned to in-person classes after much thought and deliberation between the homeschool principal, teacher, lunch lady, librarian, gym teacher, custodian (all me) and her parents. Once school went back to in-person the online instruction fizzled out to such a ridiculous minimum that we were very concerned she was be too far behind next year. I cannot imagine how difficult it must be for the teachers, so that isn't a statement in judgment of's just the truth of the circumstances. 

We will surely miss her, but summer is just right around the corner...

Mother, These Are Picasso’s

Friday, April 09, 2021

A few months ago, I reserved tickets to see the travelling Picasso 
exhibit at the Frist Art Museum in Nashville.

Originally, I had reserved them for me, Ash, Nova, Naiya & Kindred.
The night before, Ash called and had to cancel.
So, I asked Dylan if he'd like to join us in seeing the Van Gogh exhibit.
He eagerly accepted.

We got to the museum and, after a few minutes of walking around,
he asked where the Van Gogh's were?
Exasperated by the busyness of the day and educating the girls,
I said..."What do you mean!?! Look around, son...they're everywhere."
Dylan simply said..."Mother, these are Picasso's."

Ohhhhhh...yes, they are. 
(please don't put me in a home yet, son)

Does it make it worse if I tell you we had studied an entire unit 
on Picasso earlier in the same day I asked Dylan to go see the Van Gogh's?

This was my favorite.

Oh, please…
