Sinking your teeth into a good book...

Sink your teeth into any good books lately?

If I had to guess, I'd pick my son with the penchant for putting everything in his mouth as the guilty party. I found this while sorting through some of the books we used to read in the boy's bedrooms.

And speaking of sinking, why yes I am! I am trying to stay afloat amongst piles of laundry, baseball games, trips to the lakes, a blossoming garden and summer life in general. I spent a couple of hours tonight just emptying all the photos off my camera cards. I have so much I could share, but it'll have to wait till I surface again for air.


  1. I know what you mean about sinking! That' why it took me so long to come on over. Thanks for stopping by from Jill sneaky friend post!

  2. Books are such a blessing and a unique getaway from everything mundane.

    As far as my relationship with books is concerned, they not only eat with me (noodle stains all over) but also sleep with me :D

    I love the look of your blog. Very creative :D

  3. Our lives sound vaguely familiar right now :)

  4. Hi Kerri, you are welcome, I enjoyed your blog. Glad you took the time to come and say hi!!

    Hi Stillness, books are an amazing blessing! They often fall into the category of things I try to squeeze in but summer time is a bit more of a stretch. Do you share about what you are reading on your blog? I hope so!!

  5. Stephanie, I feel this way with just two, how you manage with 4 is beyond me! But you manage so well, it shows all over their precious faces just how happy and loved they are!!

  6. I laughed when I saw that book Vicky! Hang in there Sweetie you're making some great memories with the boys this summer :)

  7. that boy has done riley proud... just keep him away from your thumbs...


  8. Ha! I laughed at that familiar sight! My Paisley still eats books!Seems like she thinks she can EAT them so she won't have to READ them!

  9. if you, as together as you are, are sinking -- then I must be already sunk!

  10. Robin, I can only sigh and shake my head at that one:)

    Gitz, he was probably Riley's age when he did that :)

    Kaleena, I am glad I am not the only one with a youngster that liked to do that!

    Kristi, not one part of me is feeling the slightest bit together :) But if you saw that in me, maybe once in awhile I get it right :)

  11. ooooh, this takes me back. Wish I had a rainy afternoon to read chewed-up books with my children. Now 27, 25, and 17.

    Pretty post!

  12. ugh! glories of housework.
    Make the world go away. Take it off my shoulder. Say the things you need to say and make the world go away just about sums it up
    Hate it. lol if only we could use things once and throw away, life would be grand.
    Such decadent thoughts lol
    On star trek they just push buttons and everything comes out already made.
    I remembered my Mom used to make marinated perch and pike. It was delicious and I never did it.
    She never gave me the recipe and now I will never have it.
    Found some good ones on the net worth a try.but being marinated is not the same as being pickled so you can't keep it long???????
    Do you know?
    Have a great day Vicky:)

  13. Julie, its so nice to have you stop by! Oh I have a feeling and it won't be too long and you'll be reading those books again with some little ones :) Gigi in training perhaps??

    Hi Vic, its good to have you back :) I don't know if you can keep marinated fish for long? I would think not. And I have heard of pickling it, but never tasted it! Hope you have a great day too!

  14. I've heard of ripped pages and scribbling in books but never eating them.

    Is Nolan going to go to school and tell his teacher "My brother ate my homework"

    I heard the team "exhaustion epidemic" the other week and thought yes, that's what I'm suffering from.

  15. This gives real meaning to those words - kids, yes they do the craziest things.

  16. Hee hee, I have a bunch of books like this at my house!


I welcome what you have to say. Thanks for taking the time to grace me with your thoughts and words!

When you get lucky
