Holy Smokes! It’s September already. How did that happen?
It’s just as well because my August reading sucked. I just couldn’t get anywhere with it. I have a pile of books on my dresser that has been giving me the guilty eye. I will WILL do better this month. I also have to write a few reviews, etc.
I finished Miss Buncle’s Book which was a lot of fun and started Georges by Alexandre Dumas. This is a new translation of one of his lesser known books. It’s different because the hero is mixed race and there’s racial tension. I’m also promised lots of swashbuckling adventure so that should be fun. I think there might be revenge too. I like me some revenge.
The Pin It and Do It Challenge has ended and I managed 5 pins this time around. Besides my previous 3 pins, I also read Miss Buncle’s Book (I had pinned this quite awhile back). I ignored the heat and turned on the oven for Blueberry Grunt. I original recipe states “Head for Cape Breton, NS in Atlantic Canada and you're sure to find a heaping helping of this traditional blueberry dessert.” The thing is I hadn’t heard of this dessert until I saw it in a Martha Stewart magazine a few years ago, so I don’t know about that. Anyway I made it for the first time and it was only ok. I prefer my Mom’s blueberry pie.
