I was meeting a friend for lunch today and she was running a few minutes late so I killed some time perusing the book store. I came across something that made me a little sad for our culture: Danielle Steel is one shelf above John Steinbeck. Even more disturbing: Steel gets an entire shelf and Steinbeck has less than half of one. I will admit I have never read a Danielle Steel novel but I've read other authors of that genre and they are all formulaic, predictable and shallow. I've read several Steinbeck novels and while I haven't loved them all, he has amazing characters, true plots and moving stories while not being overly cerebral. People would have a far more enriching experience reading a Steinbeck novel but the Steels of the world seem to churn out one piece of crap after another and make millions.
On a completely different note, Delaney needs new glasses. Her prescription has changed so I brought her to BJ's to pick out a new pair. She narrowed it down to these 2 styles pretty quickly. She asked me my opinion and I knew she would go the other direction but I gave it any way. She chose what she liked and if she made her choice just to spite me, she is the one who has to wear them, not me!
I'm a mother of 2 girls living in NC. I've dabbled in photography on and off but really this is just for fun
