Lazy Sunday Thoughts

After such beautiful weather last week which tricked us into thinking spring had arrived, we had snow yesterday and it was freaking cold. That didn't stop me from going to Ye Olde Bookstore though. I was on the hunt for a copy of Bridehead Revisited for my online book club. I did find a rather funky edition which I think I'll post about later this week.

I was in a miserable blogging mood this week. I felt so uninspired and well, blah! I didn't want to look at my blog or think about blogging. A trip to my favorite (only) used book store did the trick. I feel a little better now. Not only did I find Brideshead but I picked up Blue Castle by LM Montgomery. My Fans of Anne friends recommended it. I also got a copy of ABT (Atlantic Books Today) a magazine about publishing in Atlantic Canada and I found all kinds of new things I want to read. There is nothing like finding new books to get you back in blogging business!

Earlier this week, I received some fun books in the mail. Even though my doorbell was disconnected, I heard my Fed Ex guy at the door. Whew, that was close! A couple of fat books arrived: Martha Stewart's Encyclopedia of Sewing and Fabric Crafts and In the Sweet Kitchen by Regan Daley. I've bought some material for a project from Martha's book and have to pick something from Sweet Kitchen to bake. What a shame, huh? Read, Remember, Recommend, which I'm not too sure about, was delivered too. It's a reading journal. I'll get back to you on my feelings on that one. And for the kiddo, A Place for Frogs by Melissa Stewart which is, you guessed it, all about frogs.

On the reading front, I'm into A Lady of Quality by Georgette Heyer for the Classics Circuit. Not sure what I'll read next but I'm leaning toward The Weed the String's the Hangman's Bag by Alan Bradley. I think I need a Flavia fix. I'm still contemplating the Read-a-thon on April 10 but I'm pretty sure I'll do it. I'll get sucked into finding an excuse to read for 24 hours. hehe!

So, there you have all my thoughts on this Sunday as I sit here in my pj's. How do you overcome the blogging blahs? Any great reads I should know about?
