Good morning! The sun isn’t out yet and most of the kids are still asleep. Paradise! While the house is still nice and quiet, I thought it would be a good time to write a post. Did you remember to change your clocks forward an hour? I didn’t but luckily most of the clocks did it on their own.
Remember that huge pile of books that I wanted to read from last week? Luckily, I was able to read one book from that list, Shirley Jackson’s Life Among the Savages. It was a good read but one that I didn’t finish. Now I’m in the middle of a number of books including A Tale for the Time Being by Ruth Ozeki. It’s the tale of a young girl who’s writing down the life of her 104 year-old grandmother but also ends up writing about her own life too. There’s something about this book that is really special. I’m 80 pages in but I think I may have to re-read it before reviewing it.
Today is packed with things for me to do. This morning I’m curling up with A Tale for the Time Being. After that, I need to finish my homework and work on my homeschooling plan for the week. Spring is just around the corner and the kids have already picked out which seeds they want to grow (carrots and beans). I guess some seed-shopping is going on online today too.
Just a reminder, the Chunky Book Club’s discussion of The Map of Time starts this Friday and will continue for the rest of the month.
How’s your weekend going? Ever had a book that you needed to re-read before you wrote a post about it?
