The Pleasure of Hard Work

The yard is raked. The lawn is mowed.

The garden’s singing for joy. It’s weeds are pulled.

The house is a sparkling diamond.

The car is like a snowy blanket.

The dog is soft as baby’s skin.

The children are scrubbed til’ red in the face.

The air is fresh and breezy.

The work is done. Your heart is full.

You feel so swell. You’ve accomplished lots!

Mary Ann Todd Lincoln

Hi! Mary is going to tell you about herself. So here she is.

I was born on December 13, 1818. I am the daughter of Robert S. Todd, And I am the wife of the 16th president of the United States, and also I was the first lady of the united states from 1861 to 18 65 (not very long, right?). As a member of a rich Kentucky family I am a very proud young lady, I got very good education in Lexington. After finishing school I moved to the capital of Illinois, when I was 21, there I lived with my married sister, and met Abraham Lincoln . Before I married him, I courted Steven Douglass.(I am glad I did not marry him though;)) I married Lincoln on November 4, 1842. I had 4 sons. After the death of My third son, I had, and still have , very deep grief. Since my husband died I am a mental and physical wreck. I had bad health, including horrible headaches.”

When she died on July 16 ,1882, she was buried beside our 16th president Abraham Lincoln. The sad thing is that only 1 son outlived her. Are there any things to say or ask? Here are some pictures of her.

Sowing your own purse

  1. Pick out your favorite materiel.
  2. Cut out 2 blocks the same size.
  3. Sow all the sides together but 1 side, and do this on the opposite side that you want it to be on.
  4. If you want a pocket on the side then use a smaller size of materiel and sow it on.
  5. Finish it of with snaps or a zipper.

THE DIGESTIVE SYSTEM

HELLO MY NAME IS LYDIA. I’M GOING TO TALK TO YOU ABOUT TH E DIGESTIVE SYSTEM. FIRST I WOULD LIKE TO NAME SOME PARTS OF THE DIGESTIVE SYSTEM: THERE IS THE MOUTH, ESOPHAGUS, STOMACH, LIVER AND SMALL AND LARGE INTESINE. LETS START!!!! THE MOUTH IS WHERE THE FOOD IS CHEWED BY THE TEETH . THE CHEWED FOOD PASSES AS A BOLUS DOWN THE ESOPHAGUS FROM THE MOUTH TO THE STOMACH, WHERE IT IS TURNED INTO A SUBSTANCE CALLED CHIME. AS THE ACID LEVELS RISE THE PYLORIC SPHINCTER, FROM THE STOMACH, SLOWLY REALEASES CHIME INTO THE SMALL INTESTINE. THE SMALL INTESTINE IS SURPRISINGLY LONG, ABOUT 19 ½ FEET AND CURLS UP IN THE CENTRAL ABDOMEN, BELOW THE LIVER AND STOMACH. WHILE THE FOOD IS IN THE INTESTINES THE BLOOD ABSORBS NUTRIENTS FROM THE DIGESTED FOOD, AND THAT IS THE WHOLE POINT OF THE DIGESTIVE SYSTEM. THE FIRST 9 ¾ INCHES IS CALLED THE DUODENUM. THE LAST PART OFTHE SMALL INTESTINE, THE ILEUM, JOINS THE LARGE INTESTINE. THE LARGE INTESTINE IS WHERE THE WASTE FOOD IS STORED, AND IS EMPTIED BY DEFECATION. THE LIVER, PACREAS AND SPLEEN ARE UNDER THE DIAPH RAGM.THE LIVER IS THE LARGEST INTERNAL ORGAN, WEIGHING 3 POUNDS. ARE THERE ANY QUESTONS ,COMMENTS OR ADDINGS? PLEASE ASK OR SAY THEM, I’D LIKE TO HEAR OR ANSWER THEM.

The Mustang

And here’s another’n.

It’s kinda doesn’t flow so well.

“Galloping across the great swelling prairie,

The Mustang tires not nor slows his rollicking breakneck pace.

He doesn’t stop and neither does he tarry.

How beautiful is the wild Mustang, who strides with such grace.”
