Greetings! It is again rainy but tolerable here in Chester County, PA. I am thinking ahead to how beautiful the flowers will be in a few short weeks. I am also intrigued at the students in France who are so hands-on active at such young ages. Their concerns and attention seem foreign, no pun intended, to students here in the U.S. Just yesterday NPR was interviewing and reporting on a 15 year old student who was staging an organized semi-rebellion and trying to block students from entering schools. On this day in 2006 at least 1 million union members, students and unemployed took to the streets in France in protest at the government's proposed First Employment Contract law. My nephew is with me today at work and is the advanced age of 5. He is bright and interested and it gives me hope for the future. And the present. Yesterday's template trial went very well and an area rug was ordered. There was a bossy gurdy around who felt the need to try and run the show, but it takes all kinds. Perhaps France could use her. MW is coming in today to pick up her shower curtain and BB is picking up her reupholstered sofa cushions. If it stops raining we will hit the park, if it continues we will find something indoors to do that is both challenging and creative. Have a great day. Today's photo is of my 'Birdhouse Style Plant Stakes'.
