Just a little here and there
Already it is time to start dinner, which I should be doing instead of sitting in front of a computer. Actually, I have been staring into this screen for what seems like hours upon hours but was truly only measured in perhaps one sixty-minute period of time.
Since I have both textbook experience and know my way around Amazon, I offered to help my son order a few textbooks online. My eyes are now crossed and my head aches... I will be dreaming of ISBN numbers and Edition dates tonight but with him no longer receiving an employee discount from the bookstore... we have joined the growing number of students and parents who order used textbooks online.
Stephanie e-mailed me a brief note (which is all one can handle when keeping five children out of trouble) that it was Anne Morrow Lindbergh's daughter Anne whose books she had read and that her favorite of all of them was The People in Pineapple Place. Somehow I knew I may have been wrong about which Lindbergh sibling she had read... an obviously talented family!
Someone in comments had asked if I was Southern? Definitely in my DNA although my parents moved "Up North" before I was born. My mother is from Kentucky and my father originally from Southern Indiana... which, if you have ever been in that area, you will know is really Northern Kentucky. The river is in the wrong place.
There is a part of me that will always love Kentucky from my memories of visiting a great deal in younger years. Since I was raised by a Southern Woman, I must admit there are a lot of those tendencies there mixed in with my Midwestern roots.
Now my thoughts must turn toward the stove and sink... back to the hearth so to speak... as generations before me have done come evening.
Miles to go before I sleep. :)
