Musical Saturday: Ode to My Books (I’ve Got All Day)
I mused about face care and the method that works best for me.
I shared the top ten books that I HAD to buy but are still sitting on my shelf unread.
I reviewed A Study in Scarlet (Sherlock Holmes, #1) by Arthur Conan Doyle
I was in the kitchen making Santa Fe Chicken.
I shared a photo of Canada. Or — winter in Canada.
I reviewed How To Tell If Your Cat Is Plotting To Kill You by Matthew Inman.
Remember the snow I said we were getting? Well, it continued to snow through the weekend and right into the week! I’m pretty convinced we will NEVER get Spring.
Ambur, over at Burning.x.Impossibly.x.Bright showed me how to use Edelweiss. This could be very, very bad.
I had plans to go see Michael Ondaatje, author of The English Patient and The Cat’s Table, on Thursday night, but we had freezing rain and it snowed and blowed all day, so I was stuck at home. 😦 BIG THANKS to Laura who picked up my book for me and got it signed!
BLOGGIESTA happened! I didn’t realize I had so many things I could do for it, so I’ve been busy all weekend working on stuff! You may notice that my reviews have a new look and I made some new images for the blog. I’m becoming a bit of a font whore, I admit. I also had the bright idea to update ALL THE POSTS on the blog, like upwards of 800 posts. I can feel the headache coming on.
Book Bingo Challenge Update:
- I read all of the books I needed to for ‘books published in 2013.’ WOO! I still need to read a book Anne recommended before I can claim a Bingo on that line, though. I’m working on a reread and I really have to work on my TBR books and books everyone has read but me. I am SLACKING!
- Here’s my written progress –> HERE.
Seriously Series Challenge Update:
- I finished a series! I’m kicking butt in that section … I kind of thought I would start MORE series books this year, but I’m not doing too good. I guess it doesn’t help that a lot of the series I’m reading are ending this year!
Series Started Before 2013 –> Seriously Serious (7-12)
Series Started In 2013 –> Super Seriously Serious (13-18)
