I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas celebration yesterday!
At the end of our day, my first paper white bud opened…it completed
the day in splendid fashion.
The days between Christmas and New Year’s Day are kind of

Might I suggest that you are exactly in the right place

favorite reads of the year, your pursuits and your words if you are so
inclined over the next week. One friend surprised me by sending me her
personal stack of books via email…I love that!
Create a snow storm…I won’t mind shoveling!
This was last year’s list.
Here are a few books that made my list of good reads.
It has been a year of a lot of words.
Instead of lots of commentary on each book as each
link will give you the 411.
I am going to type a few words that sum up each pick.

Caleb and I read this fable about Avon the snail and Edward the ant.
My mom had this from her library
during a visit this summer.
We had such a fun time looking at all
these sheds…really small retreats.
I put the book on hold at my library before
Carl and I had fun dreaming and pouring over the
Soon I will share about a very small “shed” project
I am tickled to begin.
Throw a snowball in the comments
and tell me your favorite reads or
a book that you are planning to read.
