Sunday Morning

Sunday Morning - The Golden Gang


We made it!

Was it just me or was last week a tornado? A can’t-catch-my-breath-remember-my-name-the-day-month-or-year-sort-of-week? So happy for this new week starting with this new, blue Sunday morning.

If you follow me in twitterland, you might be familiar with these natural arrangements I create ever so often from found or foraged remnants of a walk of wandering. The photograph in this post is from a walk yesterday. Sunflowers tower overhead in the alleyways and we fall over looking up to meet their gaze. They can be seen running wild and free in packs on the outskirts of the town recruiting goldenrod, compass flower, willow leaf, and black-eyed Susans for an unruly gang of gold. Along with matured corn fields and the gleam of September sunrises, this pack has the whole town glowing.

I’m planning to play catch up with an old friend and also do quite a bit of writing today, so you will see me again tomorrow and later this week.

“Nature is particularly important on Sundays” from “People On Sunday“, an essay pulled from a collection of Joseph Roth’s essays.

This video should be a children’s book in the making.

And I love these reimagined WWII era photos via This Is Colossal.

Oh, and have you seen these lovely, lighted cardboard boxes via The Artful Parent? How magical would it be to assemble an entire village of this whimsical project?

It made my day when the lovely Dana and Lindsey from Jbrary shared a video they created of my mentor, Jane Johnston’s, “Pumpkin Chant” rhyme. If you have young children or work with young children, it’s the perfect playful song about pumpkins. Here’s an old post of how I incorporated the “Pumpkin Chant” into storytime. Pumpkins, pumpkins, fall is almost here!

Have a great week!

On repeat: “Sunday Morning” by The Velvet Underground
