LiLi was barely in the door yesterday when she raced downstairs to play the piano.
She had learned Twinkle, Twinkle on a piano app & wanted to show us. I found some simple songs for her & Popster helped her with them
She played for between 2-3 hours with only a break for breakfast....she is obsessed!
Then she "retired" to my room for her other obsession....reading
She sets the time on her phone & reads for an hour. There is a challenge at her school to read for 90 mins a week. They have combined grades to form teams & are sailing to South America using the minutes to translate to miles. She has been reading for close to 300 mins a week & her goal this week is 60 mins a day! She wants to win so, of course, the "over-achiever" in her thinks she should do a "little extra"!
After lunch we went snow shoeing....I'll share those pics later. Then we spent some time in my sewing room designing a skirt from a "jellyroll" I had.
She picks out the strips & the order she wants them & I cut them to length....I think she should be a fashion designer as she has a great eye for color. I think though this week she wants to be a piano player!
We went to JoAnne & Peter's for thanksgiving this year. They were cooking dinner & Josh & Carol were going to be there
Molly is always game for a road trip!
It was gray , gloomy day & kinda chilly by the river
Sadie is such a cutie
We couldn't get Addie to pose as cute
Josh got there first as Carol had to work......these dogs just love him
I forgot to take pics of the table but everything was so good & JoAnne made apple pie!
We spent the night & left for home after breakfast on Friday. Our GPS sent us home a different way & we crossed the Tappan Zee bridge. They are building a new one so lots of work going on
One of those big cranes toppled over a few weeks ago.....they are so tall
Look at the size of that one!
As you know I love bridges
