Good morning! I am sitting here this morning of course with COFFEE CUP, kind of staring out the window into the whiteness of our corner of the world. I can hear Hubby out there with the back hoe plowing a path from the back yard to our shop. Soon he will plow the driveway. I am tired of the snow already and I know there is more to come. I need a second cup of coffee.
*gets second cup and returns to laptop and comfy chair*
This time of year there are so many reasons I don’t want to go outside – its cold, it’s slippery, it’s hard to walk, let alone run. Instead – there are the books that take me away to places that are warm (like In Labor Day by Joyce Maynard), and places where the fruit seems ripe and juicy ( That Part Was True by Deborah McKinlay). It’s also a good time of year to read through tasty cook books (like the Runners Cook Book I am reading now) and take in recipes that taste like the seasons I love – Spring, and summer, and Fall.
Here are the books that came in this week (I think there are a couple more packages down in our shop but I have not went done there yet today to see what they are):
Creating Room To Read by John Wood
The Junction Of Sunshine by Holly Schindler
Black Crow White Lie by Candi Sary
Today after church is a day I need to get a few things done. This is a busy week coming up with a game night on Monday, an author event on Tuesday, students on Wednesday, son over on Thursday, and Friday leaving for the cabin for the weekend – Sunday evening is our work retreat where we will be until Tuesday afternoon and hopefully another author event a week from Tuesday as well. Yup…. busy next 9 days. 😀

Sounds like you’ve got a lot on your plate! Have a great week 🙂
It will be ok – these are the weeks that take it one day at a time. Wednesday and Thursday will not be huge, they are both easy and a one hour commitment on Wed and hanging with my son on Thursday 🙂
Enjoy your peaceful morning. It sounds like you have a busy schedule ahead. Enjoy your new books.
Yes, I ma home now and may tackle a room cleaning project in a bit here, but for now little blog catching up and then a little reading 🙂
I just read something about The Junction Of Sunshine And Lucky…I think I really want to read it.
It looks interesting 🙂
Actually that sounds like a pretty calm week for you.
Hmmm… maybe I am getting old. 😛
I don’t think I would like living where snow is something you face everyday…I’m 45 minutes away from the mountains, so when I want to see it, I can go there! lol
None of those books are familiar to me…they do look interesting.
I dont like living where I see snow everyday either Laurel 😀
We had a snowstorm, it all melted and we had rain, and now the snow is back again… At least the mild weather got rid of some of it because we were all ready running out of places to put it. The weather level is really high, though. Just like it would be if it was spring.
We are just COLD now. Really really COLD. They are saying 30 below tonight.
