What is it about Christmas time that inspires a gal to buy presents for herself? Once again, Amazon Japan helpfully emailed me the latest news and I promptly followed instructions and ordered these two beautiful books. They are from Santa. I do more or less have everyone's gifts accounted for so I dont feel SO bad. Last night I wrestled the shelf we had in the hall closet used for sheets and put it beside the bed. I have been dreaming about having a book shelf there for a few months now. The bedsheets are up on the high shelf in the closet now and I finally have all my diaries out again! All 70 of them, yes 70. I have been writing since I was in grade 4 and sometimes I like to browse through old ones to see how far ( or not ) I have come. I am so comforted, being able to look beside me in bed and see my favorite books! Diaries on the bottom shelf, second shelf for a pile of books waiting in the wings ( some kind soul at work has been leaving read novels for people - me- to read ) and the top shelf is for my treasured comfort books like all the above I now have. My collection includes Stockholm Kitchens - my first and most beloved,Stockholm Kids rooms, London Kitchens and Paris Kitchens. Do I have a problem?
Also On the shelf is my favorite book 14 000 things to be happy about, among a bunch of others.
