Easter’s On It’s Way

It’s time for Easter Baskets full of chocolate and colored eggs.  This is me as the bunny!  Many years ago I worked for a photography studio that had a contract to do all the typical holiday photos at the mall.  We were short on people to don the E.B. suit so I took a few rotations.   The costume was hot but wearing the big floppy suit was fun.

 

 

 

This week was a busy one for me!  A few Doctors appointments and lots of errand running around.  I feel like I’ve been on the go a lot but very little has been done.  I had to get some allergy testing done.  This is never a fun thing.  I was stuck 23 times and hung out at the Dr. Office for 4 hours.  What a day.

I’m hoping for an uneventful weekend!  Simon and I took a short walk in the stroller this afternoon.  He was a bit cranky today but a lunch of tuna seems to have made him happy.

In book news, two new goodies came in the mail this week courtesy of publishers/authors.  I’m already halfway through The Little Paris Bookshop.  I like it so far.  It published this past Tuesday so it’s available to pick up right now.  Fragile Brilliance looks promising but has been added to the TBR pile for another time.

I’m expecting some more books in sometime next week!  So much for that time-out and no more books for a bit!  Good thing summer is just around the corner!  I read a lot in the summer as a way to enjoy the weather.

Hope you have a great holiday weekend!

Springing Up…

IMG_20160221_135206The Daffodils are up and some of the early spring trees are starting to bloom.  I’m missing my pear tree right now as it was a welcome sign of spring.  I may have to get a new one for where we are now.

My body has not adjusted to the recent time change.  It usually takes awhile.  I just don’t understand why we do this!

The weather is just on the cusp of staying warm and bringing in summertime.  I think spring is my favorite time of year.  I love that it’s not quite hot out yet but the warm breezes and new flowers are so wonderful after the winter cold.

The kitties are always happy when the weather turns.  They are tired of chilly feet and long for open windows for afternoon napping.

We are lucky enough that where we live we have lots of opportunity to join in outdoor events.  There are wine festivals, beer festivals, strawberry festivals.  Festivals involving food are big around here.  I love the beer fests and my favorite event is the BBQ fest but that’s usually in the fall.  It’s nice to spend the day outside on the water or at the ocean front soaking up the sun and the goodies.

Books…

I have finished this one – It was a requested review by the author and published last fall.

These two are new to the pile.  Fragile Brilliance published last fall and is a requested review.  Armadillos came from Net Galley and hits shelves April 1.

 

Today’s chore is laundry.  I think laundry is an endless endeavor.

Have a great day and enjoy whatever it is you’re up to!
