Coffee table strewing.
On our coffee table and trolley this week.
Let's take this in non logical order.....
The second pic is of the trolley in the dining room. What have I strewed?
Some banksia nuts we found at Dee Why lagoon, after our swim at Dee Why beach on Sunday.
St Francis of Assisi by G. K. Chesterton. ( St Francis' feast day is this week).
Pic number one is our coffee table ( camphor wood chest) in the sitting room.
Set amidst the pot plant and my china are -
A Pictorial History of Australia ( out of print but I remember reading and enjoying this as a child. I found a copy at a secondhand bookstore.)
Game of mancala. We've been having some mean games this weekend!
The Story of the World Vol 4 - we had this out to read about the first Gulf War ( after watching Denzel Washington in The Manchurian Candidate). The book has stayed out and is sometimes picked up and read.
The Compendium of the Catechism of the Catholic Church. Luke has our copy of the CCC so we are making do with this newly purchased Compendium. Nice for easy reference and as a conversation starter ( I hope).
Oh, and for a refresher on the concept of strewing in unschooling, read here.
