what we’re reading today…

“..but they are the most beautiful words in the English language when strung together,” she said. “Listen to them. I love you.” ~ Mary Balogh, Only a Promise

“..just because it happens everyday doesn’t make it any less special. Those who look will see magic.”


“She knew that she had a tendency to allow her mind to wander but surely, that’s what made the world interesting. One thought led to another, one memory triggered another. How dull it would be, she thought, not to be reminded of the interconnectedness of everything, how dull for the present not to evoke the past, for here not to imply there.”
– Alexander McCall Smith, The Novel Habits of Happiness

Young girls on Sunday, Henri Le Sidaner, 1898

Smile, sweet Sunday…


TJ DrysdaleTJ Drysdale 

When sad she brings the thunder and her tears, they bring the rain. When ill she feeds a poison to us all to fell her pain. Her smiles they bring the sunshine and the laughter and the wind. And the birds they go on singing and the world is whole again. 

“Smile, sweet Sunday,” Wednesday whispered in her ear. “The birds need your love so they can lift their wings.

~  Alethea Kontis, Enchanted
