~I’m thrilled that you all enjoy the posts about our reenacting adventures. They are easy to write and it’s fun to share this stuff with you guys. For those of you in our area, we’ve got a full scale reenactment coming up at Borderland State Park on the weekend of June 16-17 and you’re welcome to come and visit.
~Look at what Birdsong sent me for the Jeep. Isn’t she wonderful? This wasn’t for winning a contest or anything it was just because she lurves me. I think that’s pretty terrific. Anyway, I’ve named her Hattie and she swings and sways to the music. Yesterday she was really grooving to “Bad, Bad Leroy Brown.” No need to thank me for the ear worm. Heh.
~Has anyone read The Double Bind by Chris Bohjalian? I’d love to have a conversation or two about this one. And while we’re talking about Mr. Bohjalian, I had the good fortune to hear him speak and then meet him in person at a library conference a few years ago. He’s extremely intelligent and quite personable and I’ve truly enjoyed all of his books.
~I’ve decided that spring really is my favorite season. For years I tried to make myself love fall the best because it was my mother’s favorite season and I thought I should feel the same. (We won’t even talk about the issues that are tied up in that statement.) This year, though, I’ve allowed myself to truly recognize that I love spring. The trees, the flowers, the cool mornings and warm afternoons, the hint of summer that’s in the air – I love it all.
~I’m a little concerned that the only thing I seem capable of knitting these days is socks. I really ought to consider a sweater or a hat or a shawl or something. It’s time to challenge myself again, I think.
~We had steamers the other night. They were given to some friends but there were too many for them to eat so they brought a bag full over to our house. Dale and Hannah and I scarfed them down and they were fabulous. Sweet and fresh and absolutely delicious. I started to take a picture for the blog but then I looked at them. They’re kind of gross and not really deserving of a photo. Good thing they taste better than they look.
And that concludes this week’s Hmmm report.
