Hi there! Long time, no blog…we’ll at least for me. I hope you’re all having a great weekend. It’s busy as usual here, especially since soccer season started. The Girl is recovering from a knee injury (being kicked by a cleat is no fun…it’ll have you on crutches and sitting on the sidelines at a wedding, poor thing!), and she’s hoping to play again on Sunday. In the meantime, we’ll be working on another high school scholarship application and some spring cleaning.
Hopefully I’ll have some time to finish The Secret Betrothal by Jan Hahn (a Pride and Prejudice variation). Our book club is coming off a hiatus next weekend, and I have to finish that book, too: Death With Interruptions by José Saramago, which was my husband’s pick. Has anyone read it?
The Girl and I started the weekend with a Friday night movie: The Book Thief. Some of you may remember that I re-read the book with her a couple of years ago. It’s one of my all-time favorites, and I thought the movie was a fantastic adaptation. I cried, but not as hard as I expected, which was a relief.
Also, I wanted to invite you to join me and Serena on War Through the Generations for a readalong of I Am Regina by Sally M. Keehn, a novel set during the French and Indian War. We’re discussing Chapters 1-13 this week, and we’re both impressed with the book so far. Click here to check out our discussion. And be sure to visit Serena’s blog, Savvy Verse & Wit, for the National Poetry Month blog tour.
What are you all doing this weekend? More importantly, what are you all reading this weekend??
