tidbits

*Spring arrives later today...and yes, despite the fact that it is currently 22 degrees out there, there are signs of it! Birds singing--god, how I love that beautiful sound every morning. :) And spring bulbs starting to poke their leaves up through the ground. And the snow pants have moved from the backpacks into the closet (though we know this could be premature). But yes, I'm still waiting for one of my very favorite signs--Carl's Once Upon a Time announcement. :D

*It goes without saying that I'm really excited about OUaT. I'm hoping it will kick my reading into a higher gear. Though it really hasn't been a lack of *wanting* to read that's the problem, it's more that I've got so many other projects I'm trying to work on.

*I did just finish up Shooter. My first Walter Dean Myers. And it won't be my last. Anyway, I seem to have started reading on a theme here. First Columbine, now this one. And I pulled Hey Nostradamus and Nineteen Minutes and We Need to Talk About Kevin and Hate List off my shelves to read in the near future. Seems rather morbid, I suppose.

*But hey, last night I moved to murder of a different "type" and started reading Strong Poison by Dorothy Sayers. I'm only one chapter in, but can easily say that I'm going to love this book! Thank you, Ana, for putting this on my suggestions list. :D (And speaking of that suggestions list, I'd really better start making a dent in it!)

*I made a dent, okay really more of a slice, in my hand for the second time in as many months the other day. Yes, again while washing dishes. Though this time I had my hand inside the glass when it broke and it cut down into the back of my hand between two knuckles. Doesn't hurt so much where the cut is itself, but the fingers just won't stop aching. I am such a darn klutz. :/

Okay, I suppose since I really have nothing of interest to say, I should really get on with planning this week's menu. I so hope everyone has a lovely week and thoroughly enjoys the changing of the seasons!!!

Nothing says Spring on a cold morning better than singing robins, cardinals, and chicadees! The only thing missing from spring so far is singing frogs. Hopefully soon.

yay, I'm so happy you're loving Strong Poison! And also that you're reading Sayers in the PROPER Harriet Vane order, unlike SOME people ;)

Debi: oh OUch! ooooh Ouch!.. darn woman do we need to get you steel gloves to do dishes with? I sure hope it stops hurting soon... that's no fun what so ever!!!

Okay, I want to read your suggestions list.... How can you not want to rush out and read like all of them? I can reread, but sometimes I wish I could read them for the first time...

Since my buddy read of The Little Stranger didn't work out last year, I still haven't read it... Let me know when you work it in and maybe I will read it too!

Oh no :( You hurt yourself again :( I hope it's nothing too serious and that it gets better soon Debs! I also have to say that I LOVE this post!!! And I'm glad you're reading Sayers despite reading them out of order :p (eyes Ana). And you get a kick for that last sentence my dear!
