As I post, my kitchen is busy getting installed by the IKEA guys (yay!) and my toddler is off at grandma's. What's a free lady to do?--read and blog, of course!
The holidays were great on my end. Long and relaxing. Since I work for a charter school with more of an experimental schedule, I have 3 weeks off for winter break. I always lament our short summers, but it pays off this time of year!
My husband and I are both teachers with the same teaching schedule (complete bliss I tell you!!)- so our days have been filled with playing with our toddler, doing errands, and enjoying holiday after holiday (my birthday was this week too, which is a personal holiday, of course!).
I just finished reading Jeffrey Eugenides' The Marriage Plot. I plodded through it, never being much of a fan. I am 1/3 into Kate Atkinson's Started Early, Took My Dog- and am loving it. Why did it take me so long to find her? Thanks to bloglandia for steering me towards her. I plan to go to the library next week and refresh my daughter's books. Due to budget cuts they've been closed for the past week and a half- so sad!
I'd like to read my way through this list. I'll let you know how that goes!
What sites were you wild about last week? I've decided not to do a linky for a bit. But if you'd like to join in the fun and post about your favorite pin of the week, make sure to leave a comment below- it would persuade me to add a linky. And while you're at it, start following me at Pinterest (see side bar).
Hope your start to the New Year was fantabulous!
Be well and Read On!
