A bright and cheerful good morning to everyone today! It is going to be a busy day around here. We are having College Girls official birthday party today. And it has grown to a cookout of 20 or so people. Yeah, it happens all the time. But I am anticipating a wonderful time. It all starts with a waffle breakfast at 8 a.m. Yikes, that is just a lil over an hour away. Time to get really busy.
Oh I also spent some time watching the TV too. I checked out a DVD of Siomon Says, Let's Stop Climate Change to see if it would appeal to my grandbabes. (They have a birthday coming up!) I do have to say that having this presented as a cartoon will help connect to the babes. And teaching kids how to help stop global warming is a great lesson. I feel they can understand the ideas of reducing waste, reusing items and recycling. But I know it will loose some of them n carbon footprints and solar panels. I did love that it backed up a lot of what is done at Nonnie's (my) country home. Here we eat less meat, dry clothes on the line and are growing a veggie garden in our front yards. I do think that hippoworks.com is on the right track of teaching young children great habits to care for this earth.

Another show I was watching is a film called FLY AWAY that's opening on April 15th for Autism Awareness Month. The film is as much a story about a mother and daughter and their relationship as it is about the realities of living with autism. Oh this one had me hoping against hope for a way to change life for so many. Having a niece and a nephew who have this battle it breaks my heart that the lines of communication can become so garbled for them. Knowing and feeling something yet not being able to get others to understand that is so frustrating. The DVD version of this will also be released on April 26th. Look for it!
Well, you see.....even laying around in bed I tend to be busy. Guess that is why I become depressed at times. Just can not turn off the old noggin. I know there are others like me....just not close by. But I will take the time to rest when it becomes too much. And as for today....it is time to get started. Whew! We are going to have a house, yard and party full. Come by if your in the area and say howdy!
Oh, and always, I do not get paid for seeing movies or reading books. Boy, wouldn't that be the life? But I am lucky enough to have these items sent to me to look at. Sweet! So thanks so for looking them over with me too.
