marcel again

i could NOT wait to tell you all.
i ordered the book, too.
i love marcel
mostly because he is so unexpected
last summmer i heard two wild slugs eating.
 two students are working on books: one just made two star books.
the rainbow ribbon?
recycled from a present given me by a dear friend.
 she sat for the g.e.d. recently,
we're waiting for the news.
and some leaves have found home for the winter.
they're waiting for snow. 
it's fifty degrees out.
that's how this week has been.

Merissa's law - it happens to a lot of kids, too true. One of my friends made a book out of manilla folders which had been variously eaten by snails - she collaborated with snails from her garden.
Beautiful rainbow star.
