tonight we are going downtown to meet a canadian artist and illustrator, martha newbigging, who drew last summer's summer reading club poster. we are buying an illustration from the little book of big questions for the baby's room. it is cool! so we are going down to meet her and pick up the piece.
and last night i went to the kleinburg book chat. i used to lead the group when it was hosted by the library, but when they transferred responsibility for the library from a community branch to a resource branch, they discontinued the book chat group, since the resource branch had its own book chat. but the ladies of the kleinburg book chat decided to strike out on their own, and they have continued meeting under their own auspices. so i was finally able to join them yesterday for the first time - we read under the tuscan sun, which i liked and no one else seemed to. next month we are reading random passage, a great canadian classic.
and the baby, too, has been busy - playing on his floor gym, hanging out with the kitty, trying out new fashion accessories. here are some of the better examples.
