Week in Review
This was a busy blogging week because the cats and I were all on our own, so I'm going to be kind and do a recap post.
-- On Sunday, I spent the day on our patio, writing. Birds, bees (not the nice European kind that are dying off, but the giant inch-long variety) and a lizard kept me company. Isabel was irritated. Writing with Friends is mostly photos, a montage of the wildlife that kept me company and a photo of Izzy looking grumpy.
-- Monday's Catch-Up Post included short reviews of The Dalai Lama's Cat by David Michie, Coventry by Helen Humphreys, Level 2 by Lenore Appelhans, Scarlet by Marissa Meyer, and Purple Hibiscus by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie.
-- Monday Malarkey on Tuesday contained the usual malarkey: recent arrivals, some springy photos and -- well, this is unusual --a pic of the dog we dog-sat over the weekend.
-- On Wednesday I posted my review of Swimming at Night by Lucy Clarke. Naturally there's a cat photo. The girls are fascinated by something in the photo, but I don't know what because I was too busy snapping their portrait.
-- I posted my review of The India Fan by Victoria Holt on Thursday with -- get this -- no other material! No babble, no photos. That happens maybe once in a blue moon.
-- Then, I forgot it was Friday and posted a review of The Pope's Last Crusade by Peter Eisner, with a photo of a cardinal -- you know, the kind with feathers.
-- By the time I realized it was Friday, I was already working on my review of Poison by Bridget Zinn, so I tossed in a Fiona Friday photo (of Isabel) and posted a second time.
I've just begun streaming Island at War. Some moments are so intense that I have turned off the volume.
And, now I'm going to take off a week or so from blogging. I'm on about page 300 of Elizabeth Chadwick's Shadows and Strongholds. Husband is due to arrive home from the UK some time today; but, his first plane got a late start and we're expecting more inclement weather so it's likely he'll be delayed (and I'll get to sneak in a little reading time). Have a terrific weekend and week! Happy Reading!
