Linking up with Leigh again.
March is over already? How is it that thirty-one days can seem to go by so slowly and also so quickly? I know the calendar says that we are in spring, but the thermometer tells a different story. I am hopeful by the end of next month that I will have packed away the winter coat for good.
Here's what March has brought me:
|Remember when Claire was trying to get some kid-free time over the summer?|
Thoughts of Late Spring/Early Summer:
Dance recitals, end of year concerts, you name it--they're already on the calendar. I am already thinking about camps. Seems wrong.
By happy accident, I found a preview of Nickel Creek's first album in about 8 years on the NPR website. And then I started clicking and I discovered that they are going to be in the area in early May. I wasted no time in purchasing tickets. Date night!
I have read all of this author's other works--he has five novels that are part of his Matthew Shardlake series. Those are set in Tudor England, so what's not to love? Anyway, I have read strong reviews of this book--a thriller that imagines what if England had surrendered to Germany in 1940. It is set in 1952. I had it checked out for a week before I started it, and I'm sure I won't be able to renew it because other people will have it on hold, so I am up against the clock to finish.
I had no idea when we started watching this that we would still be at it three months later. We have three episodes left, so we will certainly finish it this week. Wow.
