Monday's post--on Wednesday
Wow. Busy, wonderful weekend and now it's Wednesday already. I extended the holiday for one extra day and spent most of it on the screened porch, reading the Sunday New York Times. One of my all-time favorite activities! Two articles in the NYT Magazine that I wanted to share with you. The Young Mother Abroad by Janny Scott is a fascinating look into the story of why Barack Obama's mother took him to Indonesia as a little boy and then sent him back to Hawaii to live with his grandparents several years later. I think every mother would find this story to be very interesting. It's not a quick read, but worth taking the time. Not a political story whatsoever.
Another story in a very different vein is The Return of Ellen Barkin by Alex Witchel. I love reading about people; their lives, their decisions, how they face challenges.
SO much going on. Not enough hours in the day right now. Grandboy is on Spring Break, he had a FABulous birthday last weekend with family but his kid-party is still coming up. Things are hopping at DeCocco Design and I'm trying to get to that bedside table project. Did I tell you that I finished reading "The Help?" Bravo to the author, Kathyrn Stockett, on a job well done. What a story. What a time in our history. Tough stuff.
