Brr, it's getting cold | Weekly Snapshot

Rest in Peace, Ruth. We will sorely miss you.
Cold morningsFor the past few days, we've been waking up feeling very cold. I've tried my best to ignore the season shift, but this morning, comfort took precedence and the heater has finally been turned on, if only for an hour. So while the afternoons are significantly warmer, the rest of the day and night is not. Personally, I love sweater weather, and with this year being a dud so far and not having been friendly to my wardrobe, I'm looking forward to some retail therapy.
Fall is about sweaters, pumpkins, pumpkin spice, wagon rides, corn mazes, so much good ole fun, and did I already say sweaters?
But, oh wait, we are still in a pandemic. Right, we'll find out what this year's Fall is going to be about. Even if some of these places are open, I know we won't be visiting any this year, so we are all going to be very sad. Maybe I'd try the corn maze - last time I went, it was not crowded at all, but we will have to …

Yet another Monday! (March 14, 2011)


It's Monday! What are you reading this week?

Sheila @ One Persons Journey through a world of Books wants to know what we're reading. I'm only too happy to oblige!


Have we all in the US remembered to spring forward yesterday? Much as I like that spring is almost here (it's HOT here, but the brown is only slowly translating into green), I don't appreciate the one hour less sleep yesterday. Moreover, I always struggle to be up earlier for at least a week or two.

Books completed in the last week
-  Radio Shangri-La by Lisa Napoli: A nice look at Bhutan and its culture.

News from over my blog

Books on my nightstand
I'm still reading through a couple of the books from last week. I didn't get much reading done really. I have a lot of catching up to do.

The Beauty of Humanity MovementThe Beauty of Humanity Movement by Camilla Gibb: I meant to finish this book by yesterday, but that didn't really happen. But I have a day or two's worth to get through, so I should be done soon.
Slow Death by Rubber DuckSlow Death by Rubber Duck by Rick Smith and Bruce Lourie: I have the last bit of this book still left - I didn't have a chance to read this since Friday. Still I have the gist covered and it shouldn't take me long to finish it.
The Four Ms. BradwellsThe Four Ms. Bradwells by Meg Waite Clayton: I'm not entirely sure that this book is for me, but I've heard plenty of good reviews, so I'm giving it a try!

I just started Radio Shangri-La last night so am only a few pages in. I love the idea of sharing 3 good things from the day before going to bed; maybe my daughter and I will start doing this.
The Beauty of Humanity Movement sounds fascinating. I hope you have a great week of reading!

They should find a way to spring forward without us losing a wonderful hour! :)

Glad to hear you loved Wednesday Sisters. I've been interested in that book initially, so that's the main reason I jumped in for this book.
Athira / Aths said…
I liked that idea too. And toyed with doing the same. Knowing me, it won't last more than a few days. But it's something worth doing.
Athira / Aths said…
I never knew something called The Beauty of Humanity Movement existed (the real movement, I mean). This book's been a source of good intriguing info.

I think I spoke too soon. Because it's back cold again today. Ugh! But for some reason, the weekends have been real warm and that's a huge plus!
Athira / Aths said…
I can't wait to start that book!

Well, it was about 65+ over the weekend, but it's cold again today. :( I guess I spoke too soon.
