SOLSC #23: A package on the porch!

    Today I join my fellow bloggers in
"serving up a slice" to the March SOLSC
   sponsored by Two Writing Teachers.
It's not unusual to spot a package on the porch when I arrive home from school.  Shopping is not my husband's thing, so purchasing something over the internet with front door delivery is his favorite way to shop.  As I pull into the driveway,  I spot a small white package tied with a bow by the front door.  It is not the usual Amazon box.  Oh yum, maybe someone dropped some cookies by.  I take care of several chores before heading to the front door to retrieve the package.  When I untie the ribbon and open the box, I discover these delightful buttons from a dear friend who knows my passion.  I can't wait to wear them to school!

Which button is your favorite? 
Asked to name my top 5 personal passions - 
I list (heart) books, family, friends, chocolate, and sleep.
When retirement arrives, I may have to
wear this pin often, will work for books.
Even though I'd rather be reading,
Eat, Sleep, Read retains two of my top five passions.  
I (thumbs up, like) books so they hold
A prominent place in my classroom.
Read the book first, so that you will 
Never judge a book by its movie.
I'm constantly plagued by the
Too many books, so little time syndrome.
The solution is simple and straightforward,
Keep Calm and Read On!


  1. Keep calm and read on is my favorite! Thanks for sharing these adorable buttons!

  2. That is an awesome collection of buttons!

  3. Hurrah, love that you crafted a poem from these fabulous buttons. My favorite is Keep Calm and Read On!

  4. I love simple and so I really like the heart with the words books inside. I love all of them. I think you should wear them all at the same time!

  5. What a thoughtful friend you have, Ramona! I love the poem you created to go with these great buttons.

  6. Your friend knows you well to have created these buttons for you. You are too creative by fitting them into a poem. I'm partial to Rather be reading. Your kids will love these.

  7. What a great gift. My favorite would Eat, Sleep, Read. Not necessarily in that order! :)

  8. So many books, so little time is definitely my fave. Probably because it's my truth! Sometimes I can't wait for retirement so I can hibernate in a library for the rest of my life! :) Love how you incorporated them all into one sweet poem!

  9. Such a fun present! I don't think I can choose a favorite!
