|Kinderbücherschrank - Childrens bookshelf|
Vor einiger Zeit hatten wir das Bedürfnis, für unsere Unmengen an Büchern, einen Schrank zu bauen. Ich hatte die Bücher vorher auf Regalen im Wohnzimmer und so häufig wie wir nach Büchern greifen und sie wieder zurücklegen sah es im Regal immer völlig unordentlich aus. Das mochte ich nicht mehr im Wohnzimmer sehen. Rob hat dann unter Anleitung seines Vaters fast komplett alleine eine Schrankwand aus weißem Holz mit Türen davor gebaut. Zusammen haben sie den Schrank eingepasst und nun haben wir eine wunderbare Aufbewahrung für all die vielen Kinder- und Jugendbücher.
Wir sammeln Bücher, zumindest diejenigen, die wir gerne gelesen haben. Ich finde es immernoch schöner, ein Buch zu lesen als am Smartphone oder am Kindle zu lesen. Da geht für mich absolut das Lesegefühl verloren. Geht Dir das auch so oder macht es für Dich keinen Unterschied ob Buch oder Kindle?
A while ago we had the idea to build a cupboard for our books. Before we had all of our books on shelves in the living room but it always looked like a total mess in the shelves because we use our books quite often and nobody ever bothered putting them in correctly. I didn't want that in the living room anymore. Rob then built a big cupboard with doors in front of it out of white wood for us. Thomas helped him and explained a few things but he built it almost completely by himself. They fitted it into our room and now we have a lot of storage for all these many books we have.
We collect books, well, at least the ones that we enjoyed reading. I still like it much better to read a real book rather than reading on a smartphone or kindle. It's just not the same feeling. Do you feel the same or doesn't it make any difference to you wether you read on a device or a real book?
|Unser derzeitiges Vorlesebuch - Our reading book at the time|
We have always read a lot to our kids, children's books in the beginning and now, as they grow older, we read youth literature. Rob rather reads for himself, he doesn't want to be part of our reading sessions anymore which is totally ok for us. He has chosen "The Count of Monte Cristo" by Alexandre Dumas for his next reading book and he will do a book presentation as soon as he is done with it. I still do read with Mumpel and she still likes that. We read together, I read a part and then she reads onother part. At the time we read a book written by Auguste Lechner. She is a great author for history, she writes for older children and in my opinion she describes history for kids in detail but never boring so its a pleasure to read it. A couple of days ago we've started to read the first story of this book, the Nibelungen.

|Cookie ist soooo müde - Cookie is soooo tired|
Today Cookie had an appointment at the vet and I was so happy to find Thomas go there with her. She is always so very afraid at the vet and the last time I went there with her I found it quite hard to see her in a panic the whole time we spent there. It didn't help though - she had to get her claws cut but she wouldn't let us do it so we had to have the vet do it. After she returned home she cuddled up in her box and went to sleep for three hours.
|Wer guckt denn hier am Auto rein? - Who's this looking into my car?|
A little bluetit looked into my car when I just wanted to leave. It wasn't afraid at all and sat there for a couple of minutes so I had the chance to take a picture of him.
