There aren't a lot of children drawing with chalk on the sidewalk in my neighborhood, so I'm delighted for those times when I find chalk drawings, especially in pink. I spent a lot of time during summer days drawing pictures on our sidewalk, as well as drawing hopscotch diagrams. I was a great hopscotch fan. I wasn't especially good, but I really enjoyed playing. Do children still play hopscotch? We also jumped a lot of rope and played kickball. I know I had my share of elbow and knee scrapes, but I also had a lot of fun. Not to be overly philosophical, but it's kind of like the rest of life. I've had my share of scrapes, but I've had a lot of fun, and definitely more fun than scrapes. Please stop by and visit Pink Saturday for some more Pink Saturday fun.
It's turned out to be a busier day than I anticipated. I had the fun of starting the day with breakfast with my goddaughter, who is in New York for the weekend. She got to "shop" my Bookexpo treasures and get my printer going again. Can't thank her enough for giving me back my ability to print. I got the apartment neatened up and hosted my Bible study group this afternoon. In a little while I am joining my friend, Mary, for an evening of theater. We're seeing an off-Broadway production of "The Cherry Orchard."
My plan for tomorrow is much quieter. I am going to drink coffee and read the entire "New York Times." I'm also wending my way through a mystery novel set in England in the Napoleonic era and I'm eager to see if I can quickly finish it. This is one time I'm not indulging in my bad habit of skipping to the end. Review will be forthcoming. I've also got thank you notes to write to the people who made my retirement so special. I guess there's lots to do!
Wishes for a Pretty in Pink Saturday!
