Sunday Salon ~ double birthday edition


Friday the 13th was my great-grandson Jaxon's third birthday, and his folks had a party scheduled for him at 5:00 pm.   Early in the day, his mom suggested they party NOW.  Good idea, since Jaxon's baby sister was born at 4:41 pm, weighing in at 6 pounds and 18.5 inches long.  The siblings now share a birthday.  This is the only photo I have, so far, of Shelby Leonora.  It was taken four months ago.  Can you tell that I'm grinning?


Book I want to buy
What Changes Everything ~ by Masha Hamilton, 2013, fiction (Afghanistan)

A Brooklyn street artist, an Ohio bookstore owner, a Houston nurse, a New York scholar:  Masha Hamilton braids together stories of Americans far from the front line whose lives are irretrievably changed by our country’s longest-running conflict and explores the grace of human connections in a world often too harsh and dangerous to face alone.
Just finished
The Yonahlossee Riding Camp for Girls ~ by Anton Disclafani, 2013, fiction (North Carolina), 6/10
"Just a girl on a horse, like so many other girls" (p. 388, closing lines).
Reading challenge
I chose seven books to read by January 31st when I joined the New Year's Resolution Reading Challenge 2014.  See the list of books here.
