Kindle Interest

I used to read A LOT but haven’t been able to read very much at all since the kids came along. It’s just too difficult to bring along a heavy book on top of all the other things in the diaper bag! And it’s also not easy to hold and turn the pages of a book with one hand when I’m cradling the baby in the other arm.

Which is why I’m so pleased with my new Kindle! I started using it last Tuesday and I’ve just finished my first Kindle book: Haruki Murakami’s 946-page 1Q84. Would not have been able to carry the print edition of that tome around for sure. I guess I won’t be buying as many printed books as before but my bookshelves are really full anyway and I need to clear some space for Anya’s books!

Christmas at the Lobos’

I had so much good food to eat this Christmas, especially at the party at Nav’s place. Adrian cooked his yummy mushroom risotto, the Gs brought an awesome ham, ET made an amazing salad that had seafood, avocado and grapes… I ate so well that day! Then G took all the leftover ham, mushrooms, potatoes, etc and conjured up a delicious stew. I also stuffed myself with several macaroons for dessert!

we LOVE Christmas!
