Finger Puppet Creativity

When kids are told to take tech breaks, good things always happen.

While taking care of my east coast grands the other day, I called a tech break. 

 Down with the Kindles and up came the individual creativity.

It was fascinating to observe.

It's really amazing what kids will think of on their own when given the opportunity.

My little granddaughter whipped out a box and turned it into a finger puppet stage.

Then, she arranged the puppets on her fingers and let the show begin.

It was so totally adorable that I just had to share it with you.

Her brothers (and grandmother) laughed and ooed and ahhed appropriately.  

My grand and her entourage of finger puppets got a huge ovation upon completion of the show.

Now, when those finger puppets came out of wherever they had been stashed, they provided a solid hour of fun.

WHAT WAS THE LAST INNOVATIVE THING YOU SAW A CHILD DO?

Pink Rose Perfection

Whenever there is a small gift to be given, flowers are the perfect solution.

This spring, a neighbor had a birthday so she got beautiful, fragrant  lilies.


 A sister, too, turned a bit older and part of her gifts were bright red roses and babies breath.

My granddaughter participated in her ballet recital.

How could I even think of not giving her roses in her favorite color, pastel pink?

 

 

 

Our friends and loved ones deserve flowers and guess what? So do we.

If you see a small flowering plant that you love, or gorgeous flowers in the supermarket, get them for you.

 

 


 We never lose when we treat ourselves well. It enables us to treat others nicely, too.

Long live flowers! They are food for the soul.

IF YOU WERE TO BUY YOURSELF FLOWERS TODAY, WHAT WOULD THEY BE?

Squirrels Love to Snack on Outside Lights Wires

  Two times squirrels, those bushy tailed wretched rodents, demolished brand new sets of outdoor lights.

They chewed right through them.

It would have been so easy to just throw in the towel and let them win but I am of a rebellious nature.

Those dreaded bushy tails were not going to win.

 So I drove to a community about 40 minutes away and bought four really lovely shepherd's hooks.

It took some finagling to get them into the car but a store employee helped me.

My daughter strung light set number three from pole to pole so there have been lovely lights in the backyard for several days now.

 I read somewhere that the wires of outdoor lights are sprayed with some kind of soy outer layer the squirrels just love to nibble on.

Well, so far so good. 

 The wires with pretty white lights have been spared squirrel teeth so far.  

HAVE YOU EVER HAD A PROBLEM WITH SQUIRRELS EATING OUTDOOR LIGHTS?
