Happy Sunday Salon to all. Seattle has had sun and warrmth for most of the past week. I have been in the yard digging and turning soil and planning where vegetables will go.
Sharing our yard with our landlord makes it difficult at times, so I will clearly mark out two beds of veggies and grow many flowers and herbs in pots and containers. They make the patio beautiful and there is nothing I like better than brushing against a pot of thyme or rosemary and releasing those lovely oils into the air.
I have been reading Umberto Eco’s book, The Infinity of Lists. It contains essays on any kind of list you can imagine, the philosophy behind different kinds of lists, the history of lists and many, many lists from literature, religious texts, scientific papers, plays, poetry and other writings. Oh, I’ve created a list!
The illustrations are amazing. I borrowed it from the library and will keep my eyes open for a used copy, just to be able to pick it up and browse through it when ever I want.
I’m planning on spending more time in the yard today. Maybe I’ll even do some reading out in the glorious sunshine. I’m in the middle of a wonderful novel by C.M. Mayo, The Last Prince of the Mexican Empire, published by Unbridled Books. What are you reading this week?
