I’m stopping in for just a moment to let you know I still do plan on updating this blog thing. My life hasn’t gotten crazy(ier) or anything, but I can’t seem to find the time to update. I think the main culprit is one of my goals for the new year:
It was a goal at the beginning of the year to read more than a couple of recipes throughout the year. The huge snow storms that this area got during the winter definitely kick started my re-emergence into reading. I joined Goodreads to keep track of my progress and to motivate me to continue reading. I started placing holds on books at the library.
Those holds started becoming available.
I now have so many books checked out from the library you could call me the Imelda Marcos of books.
Maybe it’s not that bad but it seems that way. The tiny bit of me that is OCD or AR or slightly control freakish won’t allow myself to lapse on the overdue dates or just return the books to the library unread.
I. must. finish. every. single. book.
I still only get about two hours to read during the day, right before bedtime usually. The rest of the day is filled with school, groceries, sometimes cleaning even, and general kid stuff. So the blog has moved to the back burner. Sniff. Sniff.
We’ve been doing some pretty cool stuff and have some cool stuff going on on the horizon so I really should be updating more often.
But I can’t seem to put this down when I have a free moment:
Bloodroot by Amy Greene
Great writing, clever craftsmanship and a subject that I am tangentially familiar with has drawn me into the story. I cannot escape until the last page, and even then I’m thinking that I will wish it weren’t over. Much better than the trash I read before it.
I hope to be back to blogging regularly soon. I’m not making promises until I’ve gotten this library book pile under control.
