The 72nd Circle Time: The Show and Tell Weekly Thread

Show and Tell is wasted on elementary schoolers. Join several dozen bloggers weekly to show off an item, tell a story, and get the attention of the class. In other words, this is Show and Tell 2.0. Everyone is welcome to join, even if you have never posted before and just found out about Show and Tell for the first time today. So yank out a photo of the worst bridesmaid’s dress you ever wore and tell us the story; show off the homemade soup you cooked last night; or tell us all about the scarf you made for your first knitting project. Details on how to participate are located at the bottom of this post.

Let’s begin.

Last weekend, right before Yom Kippur, Jen and I jumped in the car and took a road trip to Shepherdstown, WV.  To see the Fingerboard sign (next time, Chickenpig, you’re coming too).  To eat vegetarian egg rolls on the college campus and have scones in the teahouse.  And just have girl time.


I caught Jen laughing at the beginning of the trip.  Isn’t this a great photograph of happiness?


We went to see tiny house on the campus



And discovered a mural on the upper level of the library.  I love this painting of the main street.  You can see the library set back from the road (a white building) with a tree in front of it.


I could spend hours in this tiny library.  I’m so glad it exists.

What are you showing today?

Click here or scroll down to the bottom of this post if this is your first time joining along (Important: link to the permalink for the post, not the main url for your blog and use your blog’s name, not your name. Links not going to a Show and Tell post will be deleted). The list is open from now until late Friday night and a new one is posted every week.

Other People Standing at the Head of the Class:

Want to bring something to Show and Tell?
  • If you would like to join circle time and show something to the class, simply post each Wednesday night (or any time between Wednesday morning and Friday night), hopefully including a picture if possible, and telling us about your item. It can be anything–a photo from a trip, a picture of the dress you bought this week, a random image from an old yearbook showing a person you miss. It doesn’t need to contain a picture if you can’t get a picture–you can simply tell a story about a single item. The list opens every Wednesday night and closes on Friday night.
  • You must mention Show and Tell and include a link back to this post in your post so people can find the rest of the class. This spreads new readership around through the list. This is now required.
  • Label your post “Show and Tell” each week and then come back here and add the permalink for the post via the Mr. Linky feature (not your blog’s main url–use the permalink for your specific Show and Tell post).
  • Oh, and then the point is that you click through all of your classmates and see what they are showing this week. And everyone loves a good “ooooh” and “aaaah” and to be queen (or king) of the playground for five minutes so leave them a comment if you can.
  • Did you post a link and now it’s missing?: I reserve the right to delete any links that are not leading to a Show and Tell post or are the blogging equivalent of a spitball.
  • If you want it…

Sounds like a great trip. And I wanna live in that house!

That IS a great picture of happiness…if only I could join you were I not to far away (yeah, I know I wasn’t invited, but still).

3 Mrs. Gamgee { 09.30.09 at 7:35 pm }

Looks like you had a great time! Eggrolls and scones… yummy! (Just not together!) 🙂

4 Lavender Luz { 09.30.09 at 7:36 pm }

Ooooh. A tiny, lovely library. Heaven!

Hope you avoided the fingerboarding. I hear it’s next on the agenda for human rights organizations.

5 HereWeGoAJen { 09.30.09 at 8:10 pm }

That is a gorgeous picture of Jen. It is so nice to see that happiness.

6 a { 09.30.09 at 9:08 pm }

Speaking as a short person, I would like to visit that house so I can feel tall!

We could all use more photographs of happiness – thanks for sharing.

7 Kymberli { 09.30.09 at 9:21 pm }

Jen, you just made my heart shine!

8 loribeth { 09.30.09 at 9:37 pm }

Looks like a fun day!

9 Erica { 09.30.09 at 9:39 pm }

10 Lin { 10.01.09 at 1:05 am }

The mural is just beautiful!!

11 LJ { 10.01.09 at 9:58 am }

That is an awesome set of pictures – so much fun you gals had!

12 Jendeis { 10.01.09 at 11:09 am }

Aw! Thanks buddy!

13 Kate (Bee In The Bonnet) { 10.01.09 at 12:08 pm }

Oh, I need a girly road trip! That looks like such fun! And yes, what a joyful expression in that picture.

One of the most difficult blog entries I’ve ever had to write or have ever written.

Happy weekend everyone in the Show and Tell….

I miss our town library. It is open only one day a week due to budget cuts in our boonie town.

15 Another Dreamer { 10.01.09 at 5:23 pm }

That is awesome 🙂 Love the photo of pure happiness, and the little house … so cute. And the library, I love libraries. Sounds like it was an awesome day.

16 Krystal { 10.01.09 at 8:39 pm }

Love it! I don’t know how much I’d like to visit the tiny house. Being 5’10”, I probably wouldn’t feel super comfortable in there! lol

I’m attempting my first show and tell this week!

17 Rachel { 10.02.09 at 8:46 am }

Love that little house!

18 Carrie { 10.02.09 at 2:06 pm }

I love the library’s mural! Murals always seem especially magical to me for some reason. We just put a huge tree decal on my daughter’s wall with green leaves and birds perched in it. I kind of want to sleep in there now. 😉

Looks like a great place and a fun trip.
