Elektra Time


Soaking hands in water.


Making a face on tricycle.

Frog wind chime.


Eating soft boiled eggs and discovering spinkles on cooked cereal thanks to Abu.



I enjoy having this lovely child around, she is delightful and full of surprises. Today she told me she was being a good girl. When Abu finished his bowl of cereal Elektra announced "2 points". I love the way she purses her lips when she says certain words. And she is so precise when she is composing a sentence, making certain she has all the words she needs in the right place.

Can't pedal so she is walking her tricycle.

Helping Aba wash the porch, she loves to clean, and especially play with water.

Connie Talbot




This looks like an angel - Elektra!

You will not believe what I have come across on the web. Britain's new talent...she is only 6 years old and without any voice lessons she has a capacity to sing like Whitney Houston. Listen to her and you will want to buy her latest CD, coming out Monday.

I happen to have Elektra on my lap when I was viewing Connie sing and Elektra said to me, "I want to be Connie." Then in the kitchen, later on, she starts walking around singing notes and motioning with her hands and arms as if she were on stage. So cute.
Later on I try to get her to sing, but since she doesn't know the words to any songs she is timid in her voice. She is singing but mostly typing, one of her favorite things to do.
