could always
be here!

Do ordinary things with extraordinary love.

Tuesday Tales

A weekly peek at what we're reading.
Post your peek in the comments and share your favorite books!

Anne is reading
The Sew-It Book by Rachel Taft Dixon, reissued by Amy Barickman

When you sit down to sew have a clear space on a table before you, where you can lay your material to cut and baste.  The old saying "A good workman is known by his tools" is very true, and it is quite as true that a good workman makes the conditions under which he works just as favorable as possible.  You can do this also.  Sit in a comfortable chair and give yourself plenty of room on the table to lay out your work.  Have a scrap basket near by for the snips and threads.

Holly is still reading
Ginnie's Baby-sitting Business by Catherine Woolley

December had come in, as December should, with a drop in the temperature and a sting in the gray air. Christmas lights were strung along Main Street, and Ginnie liked to walk Honey at dusk, so she could admire their red, blue, and green gaiety. Shop windows were rimmed with frost, tinsel trimmings winking within.

Lily is reading
The Present by Bob Gill

Every day Arthur checked to make sure the present was still there.

Just when it seemed to Arthur that his birthday would never come, it was suddenly the day before the big day.  He went to his dad's closet to look at the present one last time.
