I am sitting in my car reading. I wanted to go to the lib, but didn't check the time and it doesn't open until 10 am on Saturdays. I knew this, but forgot in my rush to get out of the house before the boys woke up. My husband (B) is so sweet, he wished me the best of luck with all honesty, being happy to watch the kids for the whole day. I can't help but feel blessed. So here I sit and type. I am on some one's internet whom I do not know, someone who's username is "wonderful" isn't that pretty? Anyway, " second to the right and straight on until morning"! Oh, and I am indulging in a Green Tea Frapuccino from Starbucks....I love these.

I am loving both Peter Pan (an audio book) and Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress. Both are delightful! Peter Pan seems more of a menace in this original version. I have never read it or seen it in besides the Disney version. I love it! Such a great story.

I'm so impressed that you could take a picture of yourself and have it come out so good. You're hubby's sweet - I'm going to cheer for him too.

Richard said...

Bethany, I love how you color coordinated your reading ("Peter Pan") with your choice of beverages (green tea frappuccinos)! That's awesome. Happy reading!
