One thing I did as a kid all the time was to read, read, read. But I also had a horrible habit of folding back the corners of the pages to keep my place in the book. I can't tell you how many novels I probably ruined.
It wasn't until I was an adult and other readers threatened to murder me that I started using bookmarks or other pieces of paper, and now when I see a dog-eared page I cringe.

As a kid, I visited museums a lot, and I'd forgotten all the treasures there. But I have a new appreciation thanks to the very cool AND crafty Elizabeth from alteredbooklover.blogspot.com/ . In addition to sharing her lovely artwork, she posts these really incredible pictures from a museum in Kansas that shows old typewriters, dining rooms, libraries and more from back in the day. Be sure to take a peek at her blog if you get a chance.
Did you know that in 1872 The Metropolitan Museum of Art was opened in New York, and amazingly holds over 2 million pieces of art, and is over 2 million square feet? If you visit in person, you can pay what you want at the ticket counter, which sounds pretty incredible. If you purchase tickets on-line however, the price of admission is $25 per adult and $17 for senior citizens. Once you purchase a ticket, it's good to use for one year.

This is one of those drinks that are tasty with or without alcohol, and will work at any party. Even better, it's a great way to relax with a good book.
1 Thick Slice Pineapple - peeled
1 Banana, peeled, sliced and roughly chopped
4/12 Tbsp Pineapple Juice
1 Scoop strawberry Ice Cream or Sorbet
1 2/2 Tbsp Coconut Milk
2 Tbsp Grenadine
1. Cut up the pineapple and add to the blender with the banana
2. Add the pineapple juice to the blender and process until it's a smooth puree
3. Add the strawberry ice cream or sorbet to the blender, along with the coconut milk, and a small scoop of finely crushed ice, then process until smooth.
4. Pour the grenadine slowly on top of the drink. It will filter through the drink with a dappled effect. Decorate each glass with a wedge of pineapple or a strawberry, then serve with festive straws.
If you want to go classic instead, use vanilla ice cream and add 1 1/2 Tbsp Light Rum or more if you like to turn things up a little.
I'm a crafter, coupon shopper and book collector, so every once in awhile there seems like too many piles of stuff. So this weekend, has been all about decluttering. But...I've also been reading and that sort of cancelled out the organizational plan.(lol)
