A little bit about books, a little bit about life.

I'm back. Kind of.

Hello friends! I do have a new computer. Yay! What a great Christmas gift from Mr. Husband! He was good to me.
I got a really cool recipe program, where I can make my own family cookbook, a new food processor and some other really nice "foodie" gifts.

I also got my dream present this year, which completely overrides any recipe program or new computer, or any present ever.
It was one I had been imagining for quite some time, but I didn't think it would come true this year. I imagined it many times in my mind. But it's so much better when it really happens.
This is how it went.....my son Mark and his wife Sadie handed us small package on Christmas Eve. They had made a poem....and adaptation of "Twas the Night Before Christmas". One line was.... "in October Sadie felt a little fatter, they ran to the doctor to see what was the matter."Yes my blogging friends... A BABY! And to what to my wandering eyes did appear, but a picture of TWINS!! Two babies!!!
I was crying and laughing and shaking all at the same time. They have been wanting this for a while and I am soooo happy for them. I got my Christmas dream.... in doubles. 2x! But the best part was that they got their Christmas wish.
(sigh) I'm happy.

And now in my hands I'm holding "The Tale of Despereaux". I want to read it before going to see the movie. I'm pretty safe in this, as we live in a small town and our movie theater... is slow, (to be kind).
I will get back to reading and bloggig about it....as soon as I fnish Despereaux.
