A good Sunday to you! I hope, where ever you are in the northern hemisphere, that the weather has turned and that you are enjoying a bit of spring. Or that there is spring somewhere in your future. We’ve had rain and more rain. The sun peeked out yesterday for a bit and the forecast for today is “partly sunny”. Whatever happens I will be out in the yard for part of the day, digging in compost and planting starts. It is past time to get things into the ground!
It was a busy week at school with parent conferences and a day trip to an art museum. Next week we will be releasing our salmon. It is the tenth year we’ve raised salmon in the classroom and it is a wonderful experience for all of us.
The TBR Dare is officially over and I am proud of myself. With two exceptions for a challenge and two library books that I just had to read, I made it through three months reading books off my own TBR pile. I intend to keep reading my own books even as I renew my love affair with my local library. I continue to read War and Peace and have started Fire and Hemlock for the Once Upon A Time challenge.
It saddened me to learn of the death of Diana Wynne Jones, an author whose work I was introduced to just last year. There have been some wonderful posts about Wynne Jones and her contributions to fantasy including this and this by two of my favorite authors. After I finish Fire and Hemlock I plan on reading more of her books for OUAT V.
I have also started reading Agaat, a fascinating novel that takes place in South Africa, translated into English from Afrikaans. How about you? What are you up to today. What are you reading?
