New Friends for a New Year

The new year brought a couple of new friends my way. The first is a pair of reading glasses. I have needed them for a while but was in denial. My, what a difference they make! I am using them much more then I thought I would.

My other new friend is Anne of Green Gables. Thanks to my aunt I am the happy owner of the complete set!



Can you believe that I have never read this series?! I am a few chapter in and am finding it a delightful read! Makes me want to stroll along the grounds of Green Gables and smell the cherry tree blossoms. Yum!

I hope you are taking time to enjoy the simple moments!

  1. Welcome to the world go glasses! They have so many more choices now then when I first went into glasses. I've been wearing them since the mid 60's! Enjoy your books and I've never read them either.

  2. I really enjoy Anne of Green Gables. I think I got my set from my parents when I was in junior high. Happy reading!

  3. I am putting off my need for bifocals. I haven't read the entire series of Anne of Green Gables. We have some of her books.

    Have a wonderful day.

  4. I purchased the complete set of AOGG 2nd hand a few years ago but have never enjoyed them yet myself! Looks like a nice pair of friends to me! :) Fun!

    Blessings on your Avonlea adventures,

  9. I love the Anne of Green Gables series and the Anne of Green Gables and Anne of Avonlea movies! I think the first two books and the last one in the series are my favorites. I've read most of them aloud to my daughters and they've enjoyed them, too.

    Have a great weekend!
