this was a very good week to look for a favourite book and curl up on the couch, covered with a warm blanket and read to our heart's content.
mary t, our beloved teach sure gave us a good assignment for this ruby tuesday. just look at the little red car as it lays freezing in the drive way looking at our frozen house.. "little red car, i know that bernie used to put his motorcycle on a cold winter's day into our kitchen when we lived on ontario road, but our kitchen here is way too small and you are way too big! so outside you must stay little red riding hood.[as you aunt amrita calls you]."
this is the cold path that bernie and i faced as we walked into the little white house.
and these were the icicles that were reflecting in the windows of our computer room.
ah!..finally sticking to the assignment...i have placed on my computer my big red bible and three of my favourite poetry books. the author of the bible is god, and the author of those poems is my dear friend donna http://bhgalone.blogspot.com/..how glad i was when they arrived in a package from new york. all four of these books are precious to me!
these "elsie" books belonged to mom golden. she grew up reading them and they are very interesting indeed..they are very old and very worn but they are treasures to me...a gift from mom golden.
i have several books about castles and many books about different cities. the book about the great britain castles is full of many pictures and interesting stories and the book of toronto, which is the capital city of ontario tells the story of how the city was born.
now this young lady is one who i have always respected and in my mind she is my favourite of all of the royals..she was a good mother and a role model. she was just as sweet as the queen mother and it was a loss to the world when she passed away. i have so many books on her and even though i had to give hundreds of books away when we moved from our large house to this small white bungalow, my princess diana books all came with on moving day.
and so, as i said , this is a very good day for reading in our warm, cozy house.."poor little red car, don't you be fretting now, the days are getting longer and spring is on its way...you have mrs. mac, the snow queen of idaho to thank for all this cold weather!...for shame!"
Happy ruby tuesday everyone and happy reading and god bless you...love terry
