Books and Flowers
Books and flowers are some of my very favourite things!! In this case these are last week's library books. The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place was a quick read ( junior fiction) and kind of amusing. I could NOT get into The Book Thief but I did enjoy The Distant Hours.
The little man was not interested in Prairie Christmas but has had me read ( actually he makes me sing) this cute book based on the 12 days of Christmas but from a Canadian perspective. He wants me to keep it as long as we can before having to return it.
I wanted some flowers to brighten up the sunroom and everything was 40% off at my favourite nursery so I bought three African Violets and a miniature rose. I love African Violets but they never seem to rebloom for me no matter what I do. I had a miniature rose once before and I planted it outside where it promptly died so I'm going to see how this one thrives inside. There were no red ones left so I chose a peach/pink one. Now that I see them together I realize that this colour goes well with the violets.
Today is the 14th wedding anniversary of my son and DIL as well as the 52nd wedding anniversary of some dear friends of ours. Happy Anniversary, you guys!!
