No Time Like the Present, Years Later

Three, maybe four years ago I got this cute snowflake frame and thought to put a picture of the kids in it. Since then it has roamed around the house, sitting empty. Stashed away in a drawer, sitting accusingly on my nightstand, hidden behind family photos, it never received its reward until today. It's a good thing inanimate objects are so patient. Happy Winter Solstice!

The Grand Sophy

The Grand SophyThe Grand Sophy by Georgette Heyer
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Just about perfect, so it's getting 5 stars. The Grand Sophy rolls into town like a Force of Nature and sets everything to right, after unsettling everyone most terribly, but with the purest of motives. Pure delight from Georgette Heyer. The dialog and characterizations are done so well, it's hard to take a break from reading this book. I nearly burned a few meals and left my coffee sitting to get cold a few times. High praise from me, as I do love my coffee!

The Tale of Tom Kitten

The Tale of Tom KittenThe Tale of Tom Kitten by Beatrix Potter
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

My son laughed and laughed at this: "...and then she [Mrs. Tabitha Twitchit] took all sorts of elegant uncomfortable clothes out of a chest of drawers, in order to dress up her son Thomas." He also pointed out that Tom Kitten's trousers look like Urkel's. This was delightful reading.
