The end of April


i-dM94DsN-XL

My 57th April is completing itself.  It will all be over in a few short hours and we move on to another month in our life.  The month ends cold and grey and wet and it reminds me of how the month started.  Hopefully the coming month will be warmer with plenty ow sunshine and warm breezes.  I’m really looking forward to this cold front moving out so SPring can take hold once again.  Such is the seasons in central Minnesota.

I’ve been thinking a lot about the books that my gummys are starting to read.  They do so well with the Dr. Seuss books that I bought for them so I thought I would expand their minds and their imagination somewhat.  I purchased some hard copies of Beatrix Potter’s novels for the girls to read.  I think it’s a good time to introduce them to Peter Rabbit and others since I was about their age when they were introduced to me.  I hope they enjoy reading the books as much as I did when I read them.

I looked out the front window and noticed how dark it’s gotten since I started writing this.  The electric candle is lit in the window once again and rain on the window reflects the light.  Everything is buttoned up for the night and I think it’s time to go climb under the covers.  It’s going to be an early morning for me.

I think this is the part where you are to write something clever and witty about yourself. I’m solidly locked in middle age and content with myself. I love to travel to see and experience new things, new foods and new drink. I also like to cook and bake mainly because I like to eat. And I found out that I’m pretty good at both. I'm not a professional blogger nor do I want to be. I'll leave that to others while I'll kick back and post whatever suddenly pops into my brain. I'm more spontaneous anyway. And the rest we’ll just kinda sorta figure out as we go along. Feel free to leave comments or even just to say "Hello". Find me at: https://mnghostt.wordpress.com.

  1. May I suggest you look up a Swedish author and artist, Elsa Beskow. She wrote wonderful books full of nature and gardens. My favorite illustration is a picture where a little girl fly on a friendly bat. There’s amazing illustrationsin the books and the books has been favorites for several generations in Sweden. I found them in English here, so they are translated.

    1. I like the age the gummys are right now. very inquisitive, very interested in learning and very active. I’ sure the shine will wear off of it all by the time they get to be teens.

  2. I think Beatrix Potter would be great reading material! It was a surprisingly cold day closing out the month of April in Texas today. Cold winds out of the north. I also have an early morning, ah Mondays…right? Well, here’s to a good one 😀
