First, it's the New Year! 2016, please be good to us.
Also, these are the droids we're looking for. Our library is giving these cut-outs to one lucky Star Wars fan. All you had to do was take a picture with it and post it to their Facebook Wall. Fingers crossed!
Sometimes you find the perfect memorial a few years after you need it. I found this on Etsy and knew it was the one. When spring rolls around, it will find its home next to the rose bush we planted in her honor. Until then, it's nice just seeing it sitting around the house.
I finished up my first book for the blog's reading challenge, The Kitchen House by Kathleen Grissom. I definitely recommend it. Hey, if you want to join the challenge, there's still time. Come on down! Unfortunately I finished my book on a Saturday night and had no other books from the library. I had three requests waiting for me but couldn't pick those up until the library opened on Monday. Got 'em now, though.
I chose to read The Nightingale first because I blew it the first time I had it from the library. I read something else from that trip and ended up having to return it because it was on a short loan. Not this time, my friend. I am not very far in, but I can already see why this one has been recommeded around the blogosphere so much.
