Good morning to ya! How's she goin'? I have returned from a brief vacation, though you didn't know I was gone, which was a shopping vacation into the big city areas of this province. Also I drank lots of coffee. Why can't we get a Second Cup here??? Why?!!!
Mostly the trip was to purchase spring duds for the fam. Not that we don't have shops here but sometimes we want something different. Also March Break makes me and the girl shack happy so a little excitement goes a long way. I was, however, on the hunt for the elusive Bed-in-the-Bag. A hunt I've been on since Christmas. I'm fussy. I finally found one, got it in my sights, bought it, and tied it to the hood of my car (not really). It will be stuffed and mounted upon my bed soon.
While in the car, I listened to some of The Wolf Gift by Anne Rice. Lord, that's a long book. And slow. I just want things to happen! So, I'm not sure if I like it or not. I like parts of it but it's so repetitive. We'll see.
I also picked up Fingersmith by Sarah Waters while I was away. I hope it's a good one. I've heard great things about it.
Other than that, I finished Red Means Run by Brad Smith this week. It was so good! And I'm struggling to finish Lady Chatterley's Lover by DH Lawrence for bookclub. At this point, I don't care if all the characters die tragically. Tuesday I reviewed Xingu by Edith Wharton on the Project Guternberg Project blog. Check it out!
Have you heard? Armchair BEA is coming back! It's going to be good. There's lots of stuff being planned right now for June. Stay tuned!
How was your week?
