Which, err, I know I didn't announce here.
I assumed I had been off for two weeks maybe, but I'm actually surprised that it has been almost a month since I blogged. Yikes! Where does time fly to?
We had a big party of family members visit us over the last week. By big, I mean 7 people. It was fun and hellishly stressful too. And still fun. The weeks before that involved quite a bit of planning, which is the main reason I wasn't online much. We went to Myrtle Beach for a few days, checked out a few places closer to home, headed out to DC over the weekend. The last of the party (my brother) just left today morning. (I sure hate the quietness around here right now.) Even though, I did pretty much nothing but cook and plan and go outside over the last week, and although the return to the routine is a welcome change, I'm still wishing some of that fun could last.
Anyhoosie, nothing ground-breaking has happened on the reading front. I know I finished a few books. Unwind, Sarah's Key. And I'm currently going through Ami McKay's The Virgin Cure, which is absolutely amazing so far! (Which is just a few pages into the book.) I have heard plenty about McKay's previous book, The Birth House, which is high up on my wishlist, so I am glad that her new book is great.
For the first time since its inception, I even missed the Armchair BEA (and didn't follow BEA at all this time). Did I miss anything significant? I know my reader is too scary-looking right now, but I'm afraid that until the weekend, I will not be able to visit it. There are still a lot of crumbs to pick up from the vacation. And to add to it, I came down with some fever over the weekend, and now my throat is all painful and annoying.
Anyways, just to say I'm around and am (almost) back to blogging!
