Bedtime Is Canceled

This past week Bobby, Emily, and I took a day trip in effort to make the last days of summer memorable. And what we found was a rare gem in the Columbus/Dublin area called Hayden Falls. The boardwalk to the a small but beautiful falls was a surprise to find in the middle of the big city.


 

This past weekend I also did something I hardly ever do. I overslept. Yes, the woman who naturally wakes up at around six o'clock every day, overslept. Normally this wouldn't be a problem, but I overslept on Farmers' Market morning. And despite the extra forty minutes of sleep, I was still tired.

Emily and I were a little late. Some of my tables didn't get moved before my vendors set up. And I was a little forgetful. However, market still went pretty well, and the produce my vendors brought photographed beautifully.




I also stopped at my local library and grabbed a few books to read, and lo and behold, I found a book called Bedtime Is Canceled. Now anyone who has ever been a child can remember the efforts made to extend bedtime as far off as possible. And anyone who has ever been a child can probably remember their parents telling them they were not going to stay up all night.

It never kept us from trying though. And the incredibly funny thing about this story is how bedtime mistakenly did get canceled and the ensuing craziness the cancellation brought forth. This book had me laughing with every page turn and is definitely a book I recommend for kids from about five to ten.


Well, that about wraps it up for this week. Join me next week for another exciting episode, same crazy time, same crazy channel. Also be sure to drop by Literacy Musings Mondays for more great blogs as well as my personal website Fun With Aileen where you will find more on reading, writing, and my very own chapter and picture books. And finally, you can find me on twitter @AileenWStewart if you want an extremely brief glimpse into my days.

  1. Sounds like you had a great week :)

    I love waterfalls. We always enjoyed taking the time to visit them when we lived in the mountains.

    The produce pictures turned out good enough to eat.

    I usually wake up around 5:00a.m. To me sleeping in is waking up between 5:30 - 6:00. However, I do take a catnap, or two, during the day.

    I would have loved reading that book to my boys when they were younger. They are all grown men now.

    Thanks for stopping by. I hope to hear from you again.
