Today is a GREAT pub day to celebrate!!! Lilac Girls is finally available to the masses. You all know how much I adored this book! Seriously – why are you not reading it already??
This book is popping up on every major watch list and will certainly land itself on every best sellers list quickly.

This week the hubs is on vacation so I’m not starting a new book. I don’t quite know what to do with myself without a book!! I have several reviews to put up so maybe that will keep me busy. I’ve kind of been wandering around the house unsettled! But I’ve caught up on The Good Wife and some other neglected t.v. shows.
We have been working, well I’ve been supervising -HE’S been working, on cleaning the garage and starting to prep the back yard for spring. Oh the Fun!! Not really at all but it’s all stuff that needs doing. Maybe fun will come later this week.
That’s all for today! Have a good one!
Today is has been filled with little tedious things around the house. I cleaned all my make up brushes – always fun.
I sharpened all my colored pencils. Now I don’t want to color with them and ruin them! It reminded me of that line in You’ve Got Mail. “A bouquet of newly sharpened pencils”. I love that movie. I haven’t been coloring in my books a lot lately. I don’t know why – I always enjoy it. It’s a good kitty nap time activity. They like to help a lot.
It was been a pretty slow week in general. It has been warm enough to be outside but it’s sooo windy! Oh my gosh – I sat out yesterday and my book pages just kept flipping right out of my hands! I gave up.
I was outside just long enough to be attacked by all the spring pollen. I sneezed so much yesterday that my ribs are sore today! We won’t even talk about the copious amounts of benedryl it took to finally stop the madness.
This has been my book for the last few days – I’ll get it finished today I’m sure. It’s about artist Georgia O’Keeffe. I have to say I’m not all that familiar with her or her work. I’ve done some Googling since starting the book. She was not a nice or likable person if this book is accurate at all. I’m not a huge art fan. I mean who doesn’t “like” art…but I’m not really an art buff. I can’t say I think her stuff is all that amazing..but SHE sure thought she was the bees knees!
Now I AM a photography buff. The guy she was involved with (and married to) was Arthur Steiglitz. He thought quite highly of himself as well but I can’t say I find anything that remarkable in his photography. I can say the I’m amazed that either of them got anything done! The book is mostly filled with their “romantic activities” and he had quite the obsession with nude photographs.
I’ll say the book is pretty well written, but it’s really not my cup of tea at all.
C’est La Vie. Have a super weekend!
