The TV is off and doors are closed. Christmas music is playing softly.
Children are enjoying a stack of their library books.
Can't wait to read these! The Chicks Christmas is by Felicia Bond, author of Four Valentines in a Rainstorm, which I adore. The Story of Holly and Ivy is by Rumer Godden, and the other little book is Christmas Is a Time of Giving (c. 1961) by Joan Walsh Anglund. Sweet illustrations!
In other news--I am going to be starting a photography project in January that I have wanted to do for a long time. I will need to have a good camera though (no offense to my current camera, you have served me well. your pictures are not clear though. I'm so sorry). So, for photography people, what do you have? I am looking at Nikons and Canons. Nothing terribly fancy. I don't even know what that kind of camera is called, the kind with lenses and stuff. Pro cameras? I pretty much say 'you know, the not-point-and-shoot-kind.'
