Things That Make Me Smile


Reading by flashlight, a time honored tradition in this house :)

And what's keeping her up when she should really be asleep?
The Tiger Rising by Kate DiCamillo.

Obviously, Momma needs to read this book, too!

Now I want to snuggle under blankets with my latest read. That photo makes me grin.

What a precious picture! Thanks for sharing it!!

Psst! Today's the Bernard Pivot blogfest you signed up for. Hope you're still playing along. I'll check in later, just in case :))

Have a fab day!

My daughter does this too but just boldly leaves the light on until I catch her when I go to bed!

I was never able to do this. Claustrophobic.

My 11 yo reads late, but he's not sneaky about it.

Laura, that's what I did too, and my mom would always yell down the hall at me as soon as she saw the light under the door crack. If I was tired, I would turn out the light go to sleep; if I wasn't, I would turn off the light for about 15 min., wait till SHE fell asleep, and then turn it back on and read some more.

That looks like a great thing to do. I haven't read with a flashlight in forever.

It's nice that traditions continue ... or is that, "reinvented".

I've read it! Great read, I'm sure she'll like it.

Cute! Always though those clip-on book lights were the coolest things ever for this very reason! However, I much prefer being curled into the corner of a couch for my reading (even if it's late night reading). :)
