re-reading and re-writing

“(I) do my best all-round keep good company, read good books, love good things, and cultivate soul and body as faithfully and wisely as I can.” -Rose In Bloom

Yesterday I wrote you a nice-sized post about spiritual things and deep thoughts and scripture, but Blogger decided to fling it into oblivion and never return it. Therefore, in good time, I am planning to re-write it. Until then, I thought I’d share with you this lovely painting I found by Julius LeBlanc Stewart and the happy news that I am going to be again reading Rose In Bloom, this time aloud to Birdie. You see, with so many books yet to be read, I can never justify re-reading unless it is aloud to someone else. Therefore, I have arranged the previously mentioned partnership. After all, when my mother handed it back to me last night after she had read it (I recommended it, of course,) I couldn’t stop thumbing through the dry, wheat-colored pages and relishing the familiar lines. I almost just started reading it again right then, but refrained (I am so mature these days, you know.) I put it back on the bookshelf for about ten minutes before I came up with Operation Re-Read. Birdie gladly accepted and I’m giddy with anticipation! Anyway, so I am looking forward to that and you can be looking forward to my post about Isaac, so long as I am able to regain my inspiration and properly publish the post!

Love and love,

    Me too! And both of those books are great read-alouds (after a certain age.) I think you should!

    Good, I haven’t gotten started on re-writing or re-reading yet, but I hope to today!

    Love, Everly

    Alright then…we’ll look forward to it! (And what a neat little plan! I shall have to remember that. ;)

    Hehe, I’m glad you get to “re-read” Rose in Bloom!
    I should read aloud to my littler brother more often. Every Saturday for a while I would read Peter Pan to him… we started Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland too but we never finished. Hmm… maybe we should!
