This week The Hunky Hubby was kind enough to get a book on my nook for me on my birthday. Even though the nook was itself an early birthday present. He also gave me a break to go read and I had a lovely time reading The Red Pyramid by Rick Riordan, fabulous author of the Percy Jackson books. It was all about Egyptian mythology as you might imagine and quite fun. I also got to eat soup and drink a mocha all by myself, just me and my nook, which was glorious. Except for the part where I lost our cell phone and our check book in two separate stores on the same day, but besides those early excursions into dementia, it was a good book and a wonderful birthday. Completed with cupcakes baked by 3 sweet little boys.
And what did my little boys get me for my birthday… Six crayons lovingly wrapped, a picture of the solar system, and a jar containing two living spiders and a couple of random legs that had been a spider the night before. They get hungry you know. Can you get much sweeter than that? I don’t think so.
