the incredible book eating gal

One of EM’s favourite bedtime reads of late is a picture book by Oliver Jeffers called “the incredible book eating boy.” It’s an accurate descriptor of what’s been going on in my life. We recently started unpacking boxes of books that had been in storage for the past eight years. And I have been rediscovering my long lost loves. We’re building a library downstairs. That’s always been a dream of mine, to have an ENTIRE room dedicated to books.

I collected children’s books long before EM. At three, she’s the owner of quite an extensive library: books in Greek, French and English. And together, we’re now making our way through Mr. Semolina-Semolinus: A Greek Folktale. EM loves the story so much that she takes the hard-cover book to bed.

And for me, it makes me want to bake more.

Oh, XINE -- that sounds marvelous, a whole room devoted to books! I've always loved that idea, too. And how delightful that Em, at three, has a collection of books in three languages.

Congratulations on your new job! I understand how hard it is to find time for everything. I've been going through that, myself, in many ways. Just so much I want to do, and not enough hours in the day!

I'm sending great big (((((hugs)))))) to you, my friend, and well-wishes to you and yours! Have a wonderful weekend!
