Lazy Sunday Thoughts: Rambling

Pin It

This is going to be rambly, I suspect.

I see around the interweblogs that lots of people are making big changes: moving, having babies, getting new jobs. I feel extra lazy now because life is pretty stable here and yet I can't finish a book. I blame In Morocco. I love Edith Wharton but this book will be the death of me. 

I started The Republic of Nothing by Lesley Choyce this week for a change. It took me some time to get into it but now I'm about halfway through. I might finish it next week! Yay! I did manage to finish an audiobook (LibriVox) for Project Gutenberg Project, The Fortieth Door. My review will be up on that blog on Tuesday. I hope you'll read it. I'm also re-reading Northanger Abbey for my book club. I've forgotten how much I love this book! It's so fun. 

My other excuse for not reading is the gorgeous weather! Now this is spring! Sunny and warm all week. I love it. I hope it lasts. I managed to get my vegetable garden in this week: peas, radishes, turnips, Swiss chard, lettuce, and beets. I'm hoping the results will be better than last year's.

With the weather so nice, I just want to be out enjoying it. Yesterday my family and I went to our local park for a walk and I snapped some pics.

That was my week. How was yours?

  1. I'm going through a stage where I can't finish anything I start reading. It's not because of nature, though it is in full bloom these days. My yard is looking great.

    1. I read that on your blog. It must be contagious.

  2. Love your springtime snapshots. My blogging routine is out of sorts now as well. Think the outdoor activities have a lot to do with it for both of us. Have a good week.

  3. If you're not enjoying In Morocco, set is aside for something else.

  4. I am dealing with end of the year stuff for my kids. My son is graduating middle school and my daughter keeps asking me when her last day is. I have shown her the calendar numerous times but every day, without fail... "When is the last day of school?" For me, no school is not necessarily easier. It means that I have to pack lunches for camp, remember field trip $$ and drive further to drop off and pick up. Oh and then there is always sunscreen to remember or The Girl will be a lobster because even with the nifty spray ones, she misses most of her body.

    You thought YOU were rambly.

    1. I'm a lover of routine and summer throws me off. Summer is getting as busy as school!

  6. Oh thank God that I am not the only book blogger immersed in gardening, lately. The weather has been great and it's amazing watching things grow! What zone are you in? The veggies that you planted are more "fall/winter" crops for me (zone 9). I cannot wait to plant radishes and lettuce! :D Can't wait to read more updates on your garden!
