I went to read in the library today. We rode there on our bike, in the blazing sun, around 8 kilometres and back. I read this book:
I had around 15 kids there, today, since it was so hot. I did a cute and easy craft which, I think, I´ll show you next week, and I made up a melody to the Tabby and Matt song from the book and had the kids sing along, so it was sweet. But I kept it short, so we could all go out to play in the fountain:
And get soaked:
Which was, apparently, necessary.
While the kids splashed, I got my guitar out, and for the first time in, what I believe more than a decade, did a little busking myself:
At first I felt a little shy, only plucked to entertain myself, but then it started to become real fun, and people smiled at me and I smiled back, and I had really forgotten how awesome it is to do that yourself - the magic to transform a place into a music video to a song. I might go out and do it again, soon :)
Oh, and Ronnie of course added to the show with some... ahem... pole stuff:
She made that skirt herself, by the way. The "sandals" she made to go with it - I´ll show you tomorrow, okay?
So - my day was splendid all around, from the morning beginning with a chat with my favourite coffee vendor, being invited to icecream by my class, writing mails back and forth with a woman in Taiwan who´s coming to visit us with her family on my birthday, and this brilliant way to spend an afternoon - singing, reading, splashing. All great.
To make it even shinier, I come home to a new Tyler Ward cover:
Ocotber 16th, here I come! :)
