After a lengthy debate with myself and much researching on the internet, I got myself an ereader. As you can see, it is a Sony PRS and I made the decision about Sony over Kindle and Kobo because of its versatility in downloading ebooks in various formats.

I must say, I am enjoying it and there are so many books available and I can even access public libraries. I used to read so much when I was young, using a flashlight under the covers but over the years, I have dropped off in my reading. My ereader sure beats balancing a flashlight on my shoulder in the middle of the night!

On the rug hooking front, I am almost finished Maddy's mat, and will post a picture upon its completion.

Inspiration is defined as "breathing in the spirit" and part of being inspired, is finding joy in new things!

Winter's Beauty!

I took the camera out with me today as I walked around the yard, looking at winter's beauty. It was still and quiet but for the cries of ravens in the snowy trees.

Cookie Monster!

Maddy is our little Cookie Monster, so it was very appropriate to surround her with cookies! I did the snow in two yarns at the same time; one is pure white and fluffy and the other, an icy blue, and less fluffy.

Maddy's name is done in a beautiful sari ribbon which I bought at Deanne's store last summer. There is sparkle in the ribbon and quite lovely sheen to it.

On the weather front, we are laden with snow at the moment and more coming tonight. But nothing better than the stillness and quiet which comes with snow and enjoying the comforts of home.
