The Sun Also Rises in Snow Country

I have started a new hobby, reading that is. Finally I managed to find some time just for me and read the  Papillon. A huge story of a prisoner Henri Charriere a.ka. Papillon. Unbelievable story, and almost felt like I was one of his fellow mates. After finishing that amazing story I realized I needed more experiences like that. And of I went to the library and found Ernest Hemingway's Farewell to Arms, J.D. Salinger's The Catcher in the Rye and Yasunari Kawabata's Snow Country. No wonder why these books are classics! And now I will start to read The Sun Also Rises by Hemingway..

Do You Hear the Drums?

Pretty impressive found.
Or what do you think? It was love at first sight, the drum was for sale in our local antique shop and it was not even priced yet and I almost ran to the sales lady and asked for the price. That was a one scary moment as she went thru some papers. Has it already been sold or was the price too high? Lucky me, the price was truly OK to me! My husband was a pretty amazed when I carried my latest found at home! Kids are really enjoying themselves by playing the drum, and so do I! Hopefully our neighbours don't mind the noice.. I'm sure that these walls won't block the beat away.
