Thursday's Child
Thursday's Child | Noel Streatfeild
14 posts | 1 read
Margaret Thursday grandly announced to the orphanage children, "I'm not properly an orphan. I was found on a Thursday on the church steps, with three of everything, all of the very best quality". And each time she was asked, "Who do you think you might be then?", she had dozens of ready replies. Whoever she was, Margaret made herself the arch enemy of the cruel matron. Soon things reached such a dreadful state that she decided to run away from St. Luke's, but not without Peter and Horatio, and her three of everything. So the children fled in the night to become the unlikelist leggers ever seen on a canal boat. And Margaret proved that she was a person of the very best quality.

And, opting for a bit of vintage kidlit for the ride home. I like it so far, but it's got me wondering if there are any nice orphanages in literature or pop culture? I feel like maybe yes, and I'm forgetting them, but definitely not the case here!

Ruthiella I‘d be curious to hear if there are any nice orphanages in kid lit. 🤔 I can‘t think of any! 3mo
EvieBee Lovely pic. So cozy for the ride home. 💕💕 3mo

I had a moment of insanity and said I would go camping this weekend. So i am going to try and clear off all the things I have been tagged in that have been saved to my desktop. Some of these may be really old. And I don't remember who originally tagged me. But here we go.

I think this one was @TheSpineView

1. My patio swing. Either of them.
2. I like to swing, my dogs sit with me me, and I read or just relax

Chrissyreadit I love camping! Are you excited? Where are you going? 1y
Chrissyreadit Also, book has not arrived- if it doesn‘t come by end of the month do you want a plan B? 1y
LibrarianRyan @Chrissyreadit UGHHHH. But then again, I mailed nine packages and only two have arrived. I will find my receipt and see what tracking has to say. This damn PO stuff sucks. it had better arrive by the end of the month. I will plan B if need be. 1y
TheSpineView I used to love camping but have not been in years. Enjoy! 🙂 1y
MoonWitch94 Thanks for doing them all! 💜 Enjoy your camping weekend! 1y

MoonWitch94 I have never had strawberry rhubarb pie! Is it sweet & tart? 1y
katy4peas @MoonWitch94 oh it is delightful! The rhubarb cooks down but still adds the tart pop into the sweetness of the strawberries. It‘s my favorite! I also love pumpkin though! 1y
MoonWitch94 @katy4peas Oh that sounds yummy! I‘ll have to try it. Thanks for playing ☺️✨🎂 1y

#THOUGHTFULTHURSDAY

21 or so 📘💙 Insomnia is fun I am reading Les Mis and Proust everyday as well.

I cleaned and organised my library closet and TBR cart. Plus I planned May‘s menu. 🤷🏽‍♀️👩🏽‍🍳❤️ I continue to cook 3 meals a day and leave plates on step for pickups for family and friends kiddos ...teens...whomever needs a meal.

ozma.of.oz Wow! That‘s amazing work. I‘m in awe! ❤️❤️❤️ 2y
TheBookHippie @ozma.of.oz I usually cook for the kids I mentor and also at the alternative school and the teen mom house and some of my readers ... this is just a different format so to speak . Some family is struggling as are some friends. I love to cook. Some folks fall through the cracks even my daughter and her son come too as she‘s not working right now either. I have open plate policy in normal times..Bring your plate I‘ll fill it at supper. ❤️ 2y
ozma.of.oz That‘s wonderful! Your community is so lucky to have have someone like you. ❤️ 2y

1. I listened to part of Retta‘s book last night while cooking. Reading If I Don‘t Make It, I Love You this morning. I‘ve had all my depressing books come in at once from the library, lol.
2. My friend from college has 15 & 13 year olds. I‘m their extra “aunt”. I don‘t get to see them enough because they‘re 3 hours away & always busy. Also, my cat.
3. I love anywhere I get to travel. @MoonWitch94 #thoughtfulthursday

Sharpeipup That‘s my favorite travel destination too 2y
