There have been plenty of games in our house over the past very wet, very rainy, very dark week or so. It turns out that Go Fish and Old Maid are perfect games for six year olds. I remember playing Old Maid for hours by myself when I was a kid. Sorting and rearranging the cards into assorted types of piles, and betting with myself where the Old Maid would be. Exactly the sort of thing Phillip likes to do. He's so excited to be done school for the summer.
One brighter day I took yet another picture of this corner in the dining room. I found the plant pot and saucer (there's a better picture of it here, but the green is softer than it appears) at Value Village. They're just right.
Happy, happy Canada Day! (You came to mind, Teresa!) A few Canuckian things I'm enjoying today:
- Jian. Oh, Jian.
- Red Rose tea.
Enjoy the day, rain or not. Happy Canada Day!
Edited to add: And how could I have possibly forgotten my all-time favourite - The Log Driver's Waltz!
