I did it! I watched True Grit. Well, I listened to it. That counts, right? The DVD played in the background while I worked on Saturday. I heard the properly formal, musical language, caught some of the beauty of the... Continue reading

I can't say that westerns are truly a new genre for me - my grandfather owned every Louis L'Amour and I read them all on our camping trips together. But it's been years since I read a western. True Grit... Continue reading

I don't know most of those books - thanks for the recommendations. Seeing as you and I were molded from the same taste batch, I'll have to check them out...

Think back. Way back. One year ago. Remember this? You will, at last, receive your just reward. And, I have to admit, these prizes make me ridiculously happy. They were done a while ago, but then I decided they needed... Continue reading

I adore D.E. Stevenson. Miss Buncle and The Four Graces would have been my choice for comfort reading if I hadn't recently reread them! I'm so pleased that they're finally reprinting some of her books.

When I'm stressed, or riddled with anxiety, I look for books that are the equivalent of wrapping myself in a blanket and sucking my thumb. So I'm grateful to Nichole and Roxanne for this particular goal! Not that old favorites... Continue reading

When life sends you deadlines. AGAIN. And unexpected deadlines, at that... Rebel and make pies. Make them with butter and lard and vanilla and berries and more butter. And make them as complicated and time consuming as you possibly can.... Continue reading

During deadline seasons (another one next week - eek), I need mindless things to do. No decisions. Just cut and sew. So I started another quilt top a few months ago. One that will look like this. I'm using a... Continue reading

Another submission for this weekend's Read for Fun kickoff! I think that i'll try True Grit - I've wanted to read it for a while. And then I'll watch the movie. Don't forget that an unfamiliar genre could be graphic... Continue reading
