These are a few of my favorite things

[Edited: Next time I make 3 typos in one hastily written sentence, will someone please tell me?]

1. NOT Christmas shopping. I have picked up a few things here and there over the past few weeks and everything else I have leisurely ordered online. Lovin' it.

2. Paper Back Swap. I know I've said this before, but I love giving my books a new home. Recently I've been thinking about why I love it so much and I figured it out. I just love having a stack of books ready to go out the door. I always wrap them in a brown paper bag, hand address them, then imagine how happy the person is going to be for a moment when they open their mailbox.

3. Butter and brown sugar. Together, preferably baked. As in acorn squash or sweet potato casserole. YUM! I am eating sweet potato casserole, right now, straight out of the pan.

That Paperback swap is the neatest thing since sliced bread! Glinda, in my office, and I do all of our books on there now. We started after you posted about it....so thanks! Plus it is a great place to find older books that you want to re read or gift to someone. Sheri

1. I have ALWAYS loved shopping online, preferrably with a nice glass of wine!!! LOL!

2. I love the idea of that swap! Sounds like such a great idea...is that book I'm borrowing from you in your pile to go out??? :)

3. Yes, that does sound YUMMY! I think next to brown sugar and butter would be CHOCOLATE like BROWNIES...my new favorite subsitute for having my husband around!!! LOL! ;)
