So this happened.

E (Three years old): Auntie come here and look!
Me: OOOoo what did you find.
E: I found a spider web! Pointing at a doily!

Kids ya gatta love them! Ya know what doilies do look
like spider webs and the runner above looks like heaven!!

I have had strep and feel like death! So glad that mostly
I am healthy and mostly my basement home doesn't flood!!

Happy Spring!

I just read this book. I have always enjoyed Minerva's work
even before I knew about her. It is soft looking. It is beautiful!

Minerva lived in the wilds of ranch life! She worked hard and
painted much. She was a woman of strong will! She knew what she wanted
and worked till she got it! She never did the expected! She wasn't quiet
and demure. Her favorite color was red!
There is something red in all her paintings.

You have got to read this book!! It is a Little House on the Prairie mixed The
Unsinkable Molly Brown. I hear copies are hard to come by
but can be seen at DI.

Happy Spring!!
