February is SUCH a Boring Month!

It's a good thing it's the shortest month of the year......

I haven't blogged much because there's been nothing to share! Work, then home, then work, then home, a nice day here and there, and then back to dreary and grey winter days.

Gillian and I have been keeping sane with reading and movies. She is lost in camp dreaming at the moment, and I think she's watched the movie Meatballs about 20 times! Dreaming of green and birdsong and warm sunshine is getting us through the rest of a very long winter.

I am finishing up the new novel by Kristin Hannah, True Colors. Her books tend to be a bit maudlin, and so far this one is no exception. But somehow, her novels are compelling, and sucked in I get! I'm just about finished, and I was going to start the new Jodi Picoult, Handle With Care, but Gillian is RAVING about a book she just finished, The Year Without Michael, by Susan Pfeffer, so I promised I would read it next. I've never seen her so energized about a book, so it must be a good one.

It's almost the weekend, and I am ready to kick back. Read, grocery shop, do a little cleaning, and just relax. I hope everyone has a great weekend!

I love it that you can share book ideas with your daughter at her young age. She has her mother's reading gift. Yes, it IS a gift.

My daughter always struggled with reading but then she discovered Nicholas Sparks. For her 21st birthday, I bought her the entire collection as it was at that point. She read all of them, re-read them and then started expanding her reading list. AT LAST!! - my daughter has turned in to a reader too.
