Spring in her step and her name

The San Jose Merc ran an editorial and included this link for telling PG&E’s board of directors what you think of how their company’s being run. Their server was down most of the day when I tried to say my piece, so I saved it, waited till after 5, and it went right in. Coolant heads must prevail.

On a more cheerful note, I love that, by the sound of it, the cops were going to write up a ticket for putting art illegally in public and were going to make them take it down, but wait: you say it’s a craft? Well then! And so we have a yarnbombed London phone booth.

Meantime, my doorbell rang today: a friend with her little girl in her arms, the little one shyly reaching out to me with a fistful of daffodils in one hand, and in the other, a bottle of my favorite mango juice. Just to make sure I’m getting better.

You know that little girl is going to want to do that again to someone else, too–that was fun, Mommy!

It’s the little gestures and thoughtfulness that make it totally feel all better when the big things seem a bit much. Thank you, April!

I’m so glad that there are so many people doing nice things for you and letting you know that you are loved. It’s the medicine that one needs when feeling under the weather.

Very sweet – and not just the juice. 😉

Cute! The yarn-bombing, the kid, the feelings.

“You know that little girl is going to want to do that again to someone else, too–that was fun, Mommy!”

and this is how we teach our children to be caring people — by giving them the experience while they are young!

Bev has hit the nail on the head! Teach ’em young. Well, that’s what parents do, whether they know it or not. Better to teach the youngsters deliberately.

Glad you’re feeling better.

I wonder if he asked them whichcraft they were committing . . .

Have you seen the live eagle cam at the Norfolk VA botanical garden?

I wish I were a generous enough knitter to do significant yarnbombing. I love it!

And I love that you are feeling well enough to give PG&E an education.

Oh no, Alison – you’re sick? I’ve not been online much lately and fell behind so, didn’t know till just now – you get better ok?!
Thinking of you – and have a cute finger puppet link to send you. 🙂
