Happy Fridaytime! I'm ready for fall to begin in earnest, but the weather doesn't seem to agree with me. The other day it was 90. Despite summer hanging on, there has been a daily discussion around here about Halloween, specifically, Halloween costumes. A Greek mythology theme and a Viking theme (thanks to the 'How to Train Your Dragon' movie, we haven't read the books yet) seem to be emerging. I think there will be no more family dress-up, much as Julia would like us to. I think I will go back to wearing my Victorian witch hat and calling it good. I love my Victorian witch hat and would really like to wear it just as a regular hat. It has a black veil on it. It's the coolest. Veils are cool.

Cool Book of the Week: 'The Magic Ball of Wool' by Susanna Isern and Nore Hilb. All you need to know is.....a HEDGEHOG and magical ball of wool. That knits things for the hedgie's animal friends, things they want most in the world. But what happens when the ball of string reaches its end? This book is brand new this fall and it just looks adorable. Slap a hedgehog on anything and I'm there.
'The 5th Wave'????)
