I'm linking up with Katie today for Friday Favorites. Head over to Running 4 Cupcakes to see more Friday Favorites!
My littlest helper and her "princess dress." I love that right now she wants to wear her fancy dress all the time. When she's wearing it, she tells us, "I a princess." A princess who likes to help put the dishes away.
Junket Tossed and Found, where I found this great globe to start E's (really our) collection. The lady I bought it from said she dated it to 1971. I think it is a fun addition to our living room, and it's fun to look at how countries have changed even in recent history. (And yes, I know I'm a bit of a nerd as a geography teacher with a globe collection, but I don't care.)
My Kindle, and books by Erik Larson. I was initially reluctant to switch from paper books to an e-reader, but now that I have, I love it! I have a really basic Kindle, which I find easier to read than my iPad, and it's easier to hold than a book. I finished Isaac's Storm this week, and it was really good! Isaac's Storm is about hurricane that struck Galveston, Texas in 1900. This is the third book I've read by Larson, and while I enjoyed the other two more (Devil in the White City and In the Garden of Beasts) this was still a great read. His writing style really draws you in to the story, even though the books are non-fiction.
