Sweet Find

I found this book accidentally at the secondhand book shop and couldn’t resist picking it up.  I’ve got it on my bookshelf now, but first I had to take a few shots.

The first picture was almost an accident:  I set up my tripod with my macro lens, and focused on where I had left the book on the counter.

The pattern on the book cover was just too sweet.

Not at Bedtime Stories

not at bedtime stories

I’ve never much been one for bedtime stories.

By the time bedtime arrived, especially when my kids were small, reading a book was more of a chore than a sweet nighttime routine. I was always exhausted and as ready for bed as they were.

Besides, reading books in our house always meant questions. My children engage in books – and for that I am grateful – but this has never allowed for a quiet story before sleep.

Earlier in the day though, I am happy to read. With children now aged 8 and 10, I am incredibly thankful that they still enjoy having an occasional book read to them.

Plus now, they sometimes read them to me.
