I love this shot of my tea today - the steam was rising up to fog the lens of my camera.
Today's tea is Red Clover tea - beneficial for symptoms of menopause - or so they say.
I went to the library yesterday and found what I hope will be good books.
The one I started last night is Night Navigation, by Ginnah Howard.
It's about a woman and her adult son who is bi-polar and a drug addict.
It's a novel about their relationship.
I stayed up longer than I intended to. I guess I got sucked in.
The next book The Hidden, by Tobias Hill, is an archeological mystery/thriller.
I loved the cover of both of these books.
I say you CAN tell a book by it's cover - often :)
And this is Lawn Boy, by Gary Paulsen:
I read with kids at school and have discovered that if they read aloud with a Jolly Rancher in their mouth they do an amazingly excellent job with their reading fluency. I think reading out loud and sucking on a hard candy at the same time helps their brain not try so hard with each word. It all just flows better. Plus - there's the enjoyment factor of a good book and a yummy candy at the same time. Not quite so dry an experience.
I have more books from my library at the bottom of my sidebar. I recently updated it to include only the books I really really enjoyed. My favorite of all time being The Housekeeper and the Professor, by Yoko Ogawa.
