1. The weather-we lived in the beautiful city of Seattle for 10 years while my husband got his Doctorate, and the rain didn't bother me, since I knew that it mostly came in the Winter. The Springs, Summers and Falls were gorgeous weather! 2. I've learned to accept the old scrapbook pages which I cringe at now when I look at them. I accept them and don't change them, as some of my friends do. 3. Bad-hair day-do what I can, Let what I can't fix go! 4.My garden this summer-so little rain, but I am not letting it bother me. I have mostly perennials, and they will come back (most of them, anyway) next year! 5. Books overdue at the library-I just enjoy the end of the book and pay the fine.

He had to make trips down South the years the Torrington Co, built new plants down there. 4. Mom was a fiercely proud homemaker who did lots of volunteer work. 5.

1. Obviously, the poem you shared. 2. All the images-print, computer, etc., which go along with the above poem. 3. Nice to be reminded that we are not alone. 4. Our son, who is now 32 years old, had SUCH large feet (and knees!) as a newborn. I thought he would probably grow into them, as a puppy grows into his large paws! He did! 5. SO many scrapbook embellishments are in the shape of footprints!

1. That cigar box full of marbles from my father's childhood! 2. Still have it! 3. Some were metal, but I loved the colored ones. 4. In my kaleidoscope collection, I have one for which the "colors" are a marble! 5. I once commented on a green and white marble a friend had lying around, and she gave it to me. Now I have it lying around, and it makes me happy whenever I come across it!

1. "The Boxcar Children"-the first book before the series was started. I read that book over and over again, and then to classrooms of kids and then to my son. 2. "Run Away Home"-a book I can not find anywhere now. It was about a little girl in Scotland who was found with a locket with a piece of heather and a picture of a young woman in it. Thus, her journey, when she got older, was to find her home and her story. Does anyone remember this? (Back in the 50's) 3. The whole "Bobsey Twins" series. 3. "5 Little Peppers and How they Grew" series. 4. "The Borrowers" 5. "The Snow Queen" A friend of my mother lent me an old big leather book with magnificent pictures. It was magical!
