There has been a few mornings lately where up before the rest of my house. There is something to be said for those quiet mornings where I am nestled in the soft glow of a table lamp. The smell of coffee pillows into my face as I take small sips of that hot brew. My concentration drifts between the novel snuggled in my left hand and the darkness outside my window that is silent with the moon’s secrets. These are precious moments of silence before the house begins to stirs. At that first sounds of the day beginning, I smile at the moon and rise my mug so she knows that I will keep her secrets too.
If we were having coffee I would tell you that I have decided that The Elfstone of Shannara is my favourite book in the series so far; keep in mind I am only on the third book. Anyway, I am really enjoying the characters and the read. Two questions though. First, do any of the books tell the story of Allanon from the time Bremen leaves him till we read about him again as an adult? Second, what order is best to read the series in?
If we were having coffee I would ask if you can recommend any good family movies? We have been have been doing Friday night movie night for a while and I am coming to the end of my movie ideas. We have watched ET, Denise the Menace, Richie Rich, The Tenth Kingdom and a few others.
If we were having coffee I would tell you that I have a date day planned with the boys for family day. We are going to go shopping with some of their Christmas money to probably get Lego and then we are going to have lunch together at a restaurant. I am not sure who is looking forward to it more, me or them. Haha. Should be fun.
Well, I should run. Hope everyone has a great weekend. Thanks for stopping in for a virtual cup of coffee.
