Sweet treats

Our daughter sent a package.
I have been wanting to read this for some time now.

This will be a fun book and movie adventure.
My husband and I will both read and discuss!

In her package she sent book plates for my husband.
Now he will "check-out" his books to family and friends!

She also sent a little bird hat pin for me!
She is a delightful daughter!
I miss her being just down the street and around the bend.

When Penny wrote she was reading John le Carre, I wrote a note to myself to see if we had any of his books in our library. My husband likes spy novels.
Sure enough he had a lovely edition of "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy" on his shelf.
I am enjoying reading fiction.

Copyright 1928

This book was in my parents basement.
The copyright of 1928 puts this book in the time of
my parent's childhood.

The name in the front is not my Mother's or Father's.
I have no idea where this book came from.
I only know I love it.

I do not paint or draw.
I take photos.
I do write a bit of poetry.

For March I put this book on a stand in the entry.
I feel inspired by this pretty little book.

Maybe I could make a pretty little book of my March birds.
Maybe I could write a little rhyme.
Maybe I could sing a tune.

Three books for March

I read this reference book every March.
It helps me get into the spirit of the
Emerald Isle.
I also read The Hobbit every March.
I want to watch the trilogy of the Lord of the Rings again this month.

I love this book.
I enjoy the story and the illustrations.
I like having a stack of books to read.
Some stories deserve re-reading.
What are you reading?
