2. We got this brilliant little speaker for Christmas from our son and daughter-in-law. Working in technology-impoverished classrooms as I often have to, this is a very helpful gem
4. And since we've headed back to childhood via my memory, here's an image of a little one, my darling Harriet, in a photo my daughter recently posted on Facebook. I'm so pleased that my grandchildren are growing up with books as did my kids, as was I lucky enough to. Honestly, a love of reading is one of the greatest gift my mother passed along to all her children. . . She'd be pleased to see this scene. . .
5. And finally, a little hat I just finished for a birthday girl who'd better not be reading this. It was her birthday yesterday, and we're taking her and her partner for dinner tomorrow night -- the photo was taken pre-blocking on Thursday night, so she may unwrap a still-slightly-damp hat. (And don't worry, those funny loops along the bottom edge are the inside of the corrugated rib curling up -- blocking will fix that nicely.) Hope she likes these cats-on-her-hat. . .
And there we go, another Friday, another Five Things. what's up for you this weekend?
