And read aloud, I did…

Today was National Read Aloud Day. It was also, as I mentioned, my dearest friend’s birthday. So, I read aloud to her–her favorite childhood book, Happy Birthday, Moon. An adorable, sweet story about a bear who wants to talk to the moon, to ask when its birthday is and thinks when his voice echoes back to him that it is the moon talking to him. It is super cute and worth a read or re-read. I also read aloud to her the first chapter of Bless Me Ultima by Rudolfo Anaya. This is one we read together years ago but we wanted to revisit it. It is a story of a boy and his paternal grandma, Ultima — La Grande – a curandera who comes to live with him and his family and teaches him so much about his culture, his family, himself and the world. It is an absolutely enchanting story. I’ll write another review, a proper one, when I finish re-reading it. =) Good food, good friends, good books, good fun. =) It was a lovely...

…for I have sinned. It has been 4 days since my last post. Life has held me hostage. I’ve barely had the chance to even pick up a book, let alone write about them or photograph them but don’t worry, I still love them. It is deep rooted in every fiber of my being. For now, I want to share this amazing book photo I found on flickr,...

Oh, for the love of books! People will always love books, so those afraid of e-reading devices (like my nook, my nook, my nook, my nook…) eliminating books as we know them—have heart…we are a strong group of individuals, we book lovers, and we won’t be allowing the printed book to go to the wayside so easily. Here are some sweet reminders how much people love books (I did NOT make any of these cakes, all photos are property of their photographers — click on each picture to go off to the original picture):     Twightlight Book birthday cake by Piece of Cake Tricities...

12 Days of MY Birthday (Day 8)

Dec 14

December 14th — Day 8 of  the 12 Days of MY Birthday… Ooohhh…today I started early. A little after midnight on this 8th day of my 12 days of birthday my friend gave me a fun little present… Day 8    A Teeny Tiny Tea Set Oh! Fun! We had a ‘spot’ of tea! Hehehehe… this was fun. Though the cups were way less than even 1/8th a teaspoon. It was good fun to pretend. It generated some good pictures, hearty laughs and good conversation. It also spawned a bigger idea about making a tea time more regularly! =) Dressing up in fancy hats and shoes…inviting people over… Here, enjoy some of the great photos. A Teenie Tiny Tea Party! Happy day 8 of the 12 days of my birthday… And a teeny tiny thank you for my fanciful...
