This 'n' that

I've been having some groggy mornings lately. The sun is up earlier now; it should be easier for me to get out of bed. Today I almost scooped coffee grounds into the toaster instead of the coffee maker.

...

I was knitting on Green Gable and watching T.V. and a commercial came on for a sleeping pill, I can't remember which one. Anyhow, there's a shot of a sleeping couple in bed under a blanket, and a giant pill floating above them, and the pill has two layers. The narrator is speaking about how one layer dissolves quickly to put you to sleep fast, and the second layer dissolves slowly to keep you asleep. While he is saying this, the first layer breaks up and sprinkles onto the bed, forming a second blanket, then the other layer does the same thing, forming a third blanket. And at the bottom of the screen, it says, "DRAMATIZATION." Good thing, because I thought maybe a giant pill did float above your bed and turn into blankets. ?!?

Rose loves to ride the carousel at Greenfield Village. She's been calling it the "horse-go-round" for a couple of months. Well, as of the last visit, she's realized it's not really called that, and now she's calling it the "carouself." With an f. Cutie pie.

...

Love,

Kim

Carouself...how lovely, and wouldn't it be nice for a pill to turn into blankets,we have an advert where as the children go off to school, all the little woodland creatures come in and clean the kitchen, like some kind of disney film, if only!
