On the 5th day of Christmas....

Liz got lost in her new book :) I treated myself to couple- half christmas, half birthday- presents by ordering a couple books. It is one hobby that has been neglected a lot more than I care to actually acknowledge. And I am, not sure if its unfortunate or fortunate at this point.... but am one to enjoy the actual feel, look and smell of a book while reading it. I don't know that I will ever switch over to digital (kindle/nook etc) Well....that is until the book becomes obsolete and I have no other choice to keep up with the new reads.

Right now the book of choice is Stephen King's Everything's Eventual - Already half way through and I started on it yesterday :) 

For Christmas I got the girls several books, as Roxy is finally getting REALLY good at reading and Ana is taking a huge interest in it. FINALLY- A VERY quiet activity we can enjoy together ;) 

So what did you get for Christmas? Me - not counting my books- I received a new purse, wallet, hoodie, smelly good stuff, jewelry box, mug and herbal tea set and yummy chocolate and vanilla smelling candles. But best of all- I received 5 VERY happy children and a blessed happy- fight free day! YES- Even at Dad's house....everyone managed to get along and just enjoy one another!! BEST Christmas EVER!!

But today- I celebrate another day - O yes the dreaded (as it has now become since I realize I DONT WANT to get any older) BIRTHDAY! Although I had to laugh today while talking to my dad.... he asked how old I was- and sure enough I made myself older than reality. So it was a joy to sit down tonight and do the math and find myself a year younger than I believed! YAY !!! I DID manage to turn back the hands of time!!!! 

But I have started the day off right- reading a book enjoying a glass of hot black cherry tea and ready to face yet another year.

On the 5th day of Christmas

Happy Birthday sweetness!!! So glad you had a wonderful day with those that matter most and that you are re-experiencing your love of reading. I, too, need to lose myself in a few good books and just might tackle that neglected subject while away visiting my daughter and grandson-to-be!

It is awesome that Roxy loves to read while you are reading and that little Ana is joining in as well! Precious!

You are too funny girl and I swear, your with and charm will keep you young forevermore!

Love and hugs - XX

Thank you so much for this packet of awesome images!! I have been trying to make myself a year older than I am since my last birthday. Now I have to stop and do the math when someone asks. Maybe I should make myself younger and not worry about it. Happy Birthday!!
