Some of you know that I like to knit.
I am not a great knitter, but I do love it,
even with all the frustration of dropped stitches, patterns gone awry...
there is a feeling: something pleasantly peaceful and relaxing,
that comes over me.
I also love to read but don't have much time for it.
By the time I am ready to read anything beyond a newspaper or a blog,
it is time to go to bed and I simply nod off.
Last year I discovered a blog that combined these two loves:
The blog grew into a book.
This book is a delight.
Who wouldn't love a book with a cover like this?
Every night, as I tuck under the covers, I get a little treat.
reading a little bit is like nibbling on a sweet nugget
I asked for the English version of this book, just because...
Fairy buns - that's what the English call cupcakes
Don't you just love it.
Imagine serving a plate and saying here sweetie-pie, have a fairy bun.
