Family time

It is almost Christmas Eve and we have traveled east to South Carolina. As we drove through Beaumont, Texas, Louisiana and Mississippi it was sobering to see the roofs still covered with blue plastic tarps and the trees and road signs snapped in half or blown over. As much damage as there is, it is still amazing to see how much was not touched by Rita and Katrina. A group of trees would be broken in half but another group of trees next to them would be untouched.

The magic freezer is producing amazing food and treats so we are having a great time.

It has been a great to make connections with folks who share an interest in great books that are NOT just for children. Thanks to all the kid lit friends for their attention and comments this year.

Merry Christmas, Camille! Did you stop at Lemuria?

Alas, we are traveling the southern route. Time considerations require the faster path. Ah, Lemuria, the books...the bakery downstairs...sigh...
