I didn’t post on Friday because generally, it is a good idea to never believe anything you read on the internet on April 1st. 🙂 Let’s just say my week could have been better, and did get better. Although I have to say it never hurts to re-watch The West Wing with some good Thai food takeout. I also read with a vengeance, sometimes finishing books within a day, though I have to say that the iPad is going to dig into my 52 books plan. For one thing, it is all too damn convenient to download new books without going anywhere, and the problem is the samples… they just make you want to read on and on and on. So far, I’ve finished two books on the iPad in one day because I was *that* absorbed. I am about 6 books behind… which means I should dig into the YA bookshelf. I have to say, though, that the books that I’ve chosen for 52 books have all been really enjoyable. My current recommendation is Garlic and Sapphires by Ruth Reichl. It’s a very entertaining and thoughtful read, best over lunch, and then in a cafe, sipping coffee.
Anyway, I’ve been promising a garden post, and since spring is kind of transient, well, short here, I thought I’d get to it before it all but disappeared.
This set is from my garden:
There are also some wonderful smells, other than winter daphne and hyacinths. For the first time this year, I got to smell sweet shrub. It is heavenly- it smells like melon, but also has a slight cinnamon hint. You can read more about sweet shrub here.
More to come later! I hope you’ve enjoyed this look at spring.
Til next time,
