THE most amazing thing happened this morning! There is an outdoor market a few times a week just down the street from us. There are people selling everything from clothes to jewelry, from olives to pasta, from vegetables to books. I always like to browse through the books, but knowing myself (and the French books languishing on my shelf at home) I have decided that I won't buy any books that are written in French and I don't care how pretty they are, okay? Today I was glancing at the tables full of books, hundreds of gorgeous books, and there was one lonely box labelled, "Livres en anglais." There were about eight in the box. I flipped through them and out of the eight there were THE two books that Ella needs for her English class -- Julius Caesar, and Lord of the Flies. What are the chances of that???? Are you impressed and astonished? No one around here is.
