Happy Valentine's Day
It's been a nice quiet day around the house. I received a bouquet of my favorite flowers, tulips. I mostly have to keep them up high or they become salad for the cat. She's off sleeping the afternoon away so I can enjoy them for a little bit before putting them back up on top of the bookcase. Yesterday we went to lunch at a cute local restaurant. The kids are off school for a week so a lazy quiet afternoon is nice. It won't last past today.
I did manage a stop at Border's on Friday where I got Chris Bohjalaian's new book: Secrets of Eden. I've read several reviews of this book making it sound like a good read. Yesterday, while at a local bookstore I picked up a book by Dorothy Allison, Bastards out of Carolina, that looked worth reading. I'll add them to my shelf of 'nexts'. I also added a few must reads to my Kindle. Saving CeeCee Honeycutt, by Beth Hoffman is only out in hard cover so the Kindle purchase was a good deal. I can't pass it on to anyone but I'll get to read it sooner then if I got on the waiting list at the library. I also got The Postmistress by Sarah Blake. At both Border's and the local store I kept picking this one up and putting it back. I finally lost all control while on Amazon. The final book purchase of the weekend was Olive Kitteridge by Elizabeth Strout. I can't say what I'll read next because sometimes I pick based on what looks good at the time. I'll let you all know what I do read and how it is.
For now I'm off...
