The circus arrives without warning…

Finished my book club’s “The night circus”.  It’s Erin Morgenstern’s debut novel, and I already cannot wait for her new books to come!

If you love fairy tales – you will find all the magic, and love, and good and evil, and complexity in this book… minus the fairies.  The first paragraph captivates and the story holds you tight till the last word!  What a delightful tale!

Failed photographer… again

I made another unsuccessful attempt at Christmas portrait photography… Surely it’s not me, it’s the camera!!!!  It cannot possibly focus on kids moving at 100 miles per hour !  Ohmmmm…

Well, here is one where the shoes are in focus!

We have guests tonight, so I’m taking a day off – no workouts or long walks with kids, but cleaning and cooking…  Exciting!

Oh, one more thing!  The January book club meeting is scheduled.  Our next book is “The Night Circus” by Erin Morgenstern.

Join and read it with us!
