like a squirrel

quiet place

November is kicking my butt this year.
Every day is rush and hurry and scurry.
I feel like a squirrel readying herself for winter.

Yes, I am tired.
But, oh! I don't want to stop.
All this hurrying and scurrying is good stuff - fun stuff.

Like this weekend.
We're celebrating Sloane's tenth birthday at a hotel
with her four best friends and an indoor pool. How cool is that?

And get this.
She made her own cake;
a peanut butter chocolate confection she invented.

She made her own cake
because she wanted to make something wonderful to give her best friends.
What a kid!

I need a quiet place like this one just now. Taken at the Old State House Museum in Little Rock.

The room does seem quiet. Happy, happy 10th birthday to Sloane. What a fun celebration at a hotel with best friends, an indoor pool, and a cake made for friends. This is what memory making is all about. Such special moments, she will never forget.

Wishing Sloane a very happy birthday. I am sending her a photograph via email from India.

That's so cute about the cake. I can see she has some "relyngenes"! I hope you're all having a grand time!
