Marguerite loves going outside. She's forever picking kamias (fruit from cucumber tree/tree sorrel) because our mature tree is simply abundant with fruits. She also loves picking flowers and leaves, so I thought yesterday's art activity could incorporate this penchant of hers again (last time, we did leaf printing). We picked yesterday-today-tomorrow flowers (Chinese honeysuckle) from the front fence and other leaves from the plants. Anyway, I got this idea from somewhere I can't remember. I made a note of it in my mind to do this a long time ago, but it took me quite a while to get around to doing it, so now I can't remember what my original inspiration was.
Marguerite loves going for walks with her Nannie (my mom) and when she gets back, she usually has a flower for me (sometimes also for her Aunt Chip). To show appreciation, I tuck the flower behind my ear or in my hair and when it's about falling off, I use it as a bookmark for my Bible. At the rate the flower giving is going, I'll have every page in my Bible bookmarked.
I suppose I'll get to the point when I don't have to keep every little thing that Marguerite gives me, but for now it's absolutely unthinkable.
