I’ve Never Felt So Old
The other day, I accompanied Sweetie Boy and his class on a field trip to the Huntington Library and Gardens. We’re only about 15 minutes away, and it’s always such a pleasure to go here. If you have never been, this place is da bomb! They feature a wonderful museum with incredible works of art, including Blue Boy and Pinkie, an amazing book collection, and gardens upon gardens of beautiful flowers, plants and trees. I’m trying not to gush on and on about it because no words will do this place justice. If you’re coming to LA for a visit, you must see this place. It’s completely worth it, and if you want to treat yourself a bit, go to their tea room. It’s always great to stuff yourself with tea, scones, sandwiches, and dessert, and then roll yourself out to stroll among the gardens.
Anyhoo… after the field trip, Sweetie Boy’s homework assignment was to write 10 sentences using their spelling words for the week. He typed them up on my computer, and this is what I spied:
The portrait of Blue Boy was my geriatric mother’s favorite painting.
What the…??? He’s gonna get it now.
P.S. Wicked is stalled. I cast off on the waist band, and just have the 2 sleeves to finish. I went to the stash to get the last ball, but apparently I used it already! I didn’t realize that I went through all six balls of yarn, but my Angel, Marie, is kind enough to share one with me from her stash. Thank you, Marie! I’m swatching for the Central Park Hoodie with my Black Water Abbey yarn I got at Stitches. Wish me luck!
