Boats…


A little sailboat, in the ocean..





Adrift! A little boat adrift!
And night is coming down!
Will no one guide a little boat
Unto the nearest town?

So Sailors say—on yesterday—
Just as the dusk was brown
One little boat gave up its strife
And gurgled down and down.

So angels say—on yesterday—
Just as the dawn was red
One little boat—o’erspent with gales—
Retrimmed its masts—redecked its sails—
And shot—exultant on!

Emily Dickinson

ice cream sandwiches



Some interesting ice cream sandwich facts:

National ice cream sandwich day August 2nd

In 1988 a baking company and a sheet-metal firm in Dubuque, Iowa, teamed up to produce the world’s largest ice cream sandwich, which tipped the scales at nearly 2,500 pounds.

The other night we took the kids to see Nanny Mcphee . I absolutly loved it. Not only was the story really cute, but the film was stunning eye candy. I want to live in the house Another photo here. The costumes were brilliant, so much fun color…and there is another brief glimspe into another house (which is pink-city) and equally amazing, but I cant find any photos online. I think the wedding scene has really inspired me for our upcoming tea party!
