We had a lovely Valentines Day. My day at work was made MUCH brighter by the arrival of these beautiful flowers from my honey bun.
We went out to dinner at a little Chinese restaraunt with Sam (Austen was playing at a school basketball game as part of pep band). Later we exchanged cards and gifts bags. The boys each got a cache of candy and two books from us and I received yummy chocolates and a $25 gift certificate to Barnes and Noble!
The rest of life has consisted of work, laundry, cleaning and reading! I have read several books in the past couple of weeks and hope to get around to reviewing them on my book blog. I am serious about completing my book challenges! Currently I am reading, The Color Purple. It is such a sad book, yet as I near the end, I see a little glimmer of hope returning to Celie's (the main character) life. Last week, a new book arrived in the mail from Amazon. My son had preordered it for me as a Christmas gift and it was finally released. It is the new Maise Dobbs book by Jacqueline Winspear. While I am not generally a mystery book lover, I absolutely love this series.
Well, I am off to visit a few blogs and maybe write a couple of book reviews. I hope to participate in MPM, wordless wednesday, and maybe thursday 13 next week--heres crossing my fingers!
