We did yet another quick up-and-back trip to Oxford and Memphis, this weekend. I would have insisted on skipping Memphis entirely but delightful author Alex George renewed our determination to find an international grocery store because . . . remember that Jamie Oliver book I got? Jamie's Food Revolution? Mr. Oliver uses a lot of chiles and spices that are not quite as common as he must imagine. We can find some of what we need, but we've been having a heck of a time finding variety and had pretty much given up the search. But, we decided to check out an international grocery store in Memphis after Alex posted a photo of the chiles he'd purchased, nudging us into continuing our search. Thanks, Alex.
There was a full moon, this weekend, but cloud cover kept me from doing my full moon photography assignment. Fortunately, we just happened to arrive in Water Valley during Blue Hour.
Blue Hour photography is so fun! I wish I'd learned about it 20 years ago.
Book-wise, I've been reading the same book all weekend: The Tutor's Daughter by Julie Klassen, an exceptionally well-written Regency romance from Bethany House. There's so much happening in this book -- a little love triangle, a great setting (the coast of Cornwall), some spooky happenings, a perky "ward", a nasty stepmother. Totally captivating writing.
- Lonely Planet British Columbia & the Canadian Rockies and
- Lonely Planet Washington, Oregon & the Pacific Northwest - both purchased for vacation planning
- Life After Life by Kate Atkinson - received a box of 15 books for my F2F Book Group to read from Hatchette (I've read a little bit and I can tell it's going to be a fascinating read). We'll discuss Life After Life at our February meeting. Everyone's jazzed, so it should be fun.
- Wooby and Peep by Liu & Peterson - unsolicited from Sterling Children's and already read; will do a Children's Day post in the next couple of weeks.
- The Mountain Between Us by Charles Martin - via Paperback Swap
That's about all that's going on in my world. No malarkey. Well, not much, anyway.
