First, before I forget, congratulations to the winner of The House at Tyneford, Deanna at Polishing Mud Balls. I hope that you all will consider joining Deanna and I for the read-along in April. I’ll be posting the schedule later this week.
Well, I survived the goodbye – now to get through the next two weeks. Sigh. Natalie called last night from Redmond, Oregon, and she’s already having a lot of fun, which makes me happy. I’ve got some stuff planned to keep me busy while she’s gone.
I spent yesterday afternoon seeing The Vow with my parents, and the evening playing a cut-throat game of “Munchkin” with my boys.
Today will be a good day – church in the morning, and then the boys and I are heading south to Mom and Dad’s for another movie-marathon sleepover. We’re doing animated films this time: How to Train Your Dragon, Horton Hears a Who, Megamind, and Despicable Me. Then, Thursday afternoon, I’m taking them to see The Hunger Games – can. not. wait.
We’re also planning to take the boys roller-skating at least once, and to the aquatic center at nearby Usk once. Plus, I’m planning our church’s Easter service, and a friend just sent me an invite to Pinterest, so…… I’m sure the time will go by quickly until she’s back.
I did finish three books this week (reviews to come): Memento Mori by Muriel Spark, Harvesting the Heart by Jodi Picoult, and These Things Hidden by Heather Gudenkauf. If I get any time to read today, these are my current in-progress books:
~ Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell
~ The Yellow House by Patricia Falvey – I would be finished with this if not reading slowly for the read-along.
~ Feed by Mira Grant
~ The Innocent by Taylor Stevens
~ The Little Stranger by Sarah Waters
