So we didn't make it to church. Instead we chose to get up early and have a family day. We are still in the process of finding a church home but until we do I have been attending the Bible Study class and will start MOPS in September. You know finding a Church home is way harder than I thought it would be!!!
Anywho, we had breakfast at First Watch and man oh' man do we love this place!! It never gets old, food is always fabulous, and everyone who works there is super nice. I am wanting to get into baking homemade bread so I asked Nathan to take me to Half Price Books and then to Barnes and Nobles.
I scored a Bread making cooking book at Half Price Books but didn't stay long...Gabriel was bored. This is where I am glad we went to EnterTRAINment Junction a couple weeks ago. Gabriel's love for trains (do to EnterTRAINment Junction) allowed us to stay at Barnes-N-Nobles for almost TWO HOURS!!!! Nathan got coffee, walked around the store, checked out the Nook for me, all while Gabriel and I were in the children's section - me reading and Gabriel playing with Thomas The Train trains.
Nathan and I talked about my love for books, poor guy!!! His reading list consists of the Sport's Pages and doesn't understand why I bring Gabriel a book home every time I come home from a store. I have even been ordered to not buy any more books....LOL yeah right!!
I toy with the idea of getting the Nook, Kindle, or whatever electronic book is out there. What stops me??? The smell of a book. The first thing I do when I read new or used book is to smell the book. Call me crazy but smelling a book gets my mind ready to take off to petticoats, a who-done it mystery, shape shifters, love, or whatever the theme is I happen to be reading. It helps to take me away from the real-world and truly immerse into the plot. Man I really love to read! Then the thought of not turning a page bothers me. I have no rhyme or reason why it bothers me but it does.
So until I can make up my mind to go digital or not to go digital, I will finish my Sunday night in bed, curled up under the comforter, with Janet Evanovich's Finger Lickin' Fifteen.....this book has me rolling with laughter! Another steal for a hardback book for $6.98 at B&N!
Are you a digital reader yet???? Oh, Sunday was finished with naps, cartoons in bed (only 10 minutes because Gabriel is still not ready for TV or cuddle time in bed - we are not the co-sleeping kind of family), Grilled Steaks with mac-n-cheese and green beans, and practice on our numbers, colors, and lots and lots of hugs and kisses :D
