Enjoy the Spring Flowers
It’s that time of year when the spring flowers are poking their heads through the weeds and dead growth I ignored all winter. Time to get outside and freshen up the yard.
Something about digging in the dirt and tidying up the yard helps tidy up my winter stalled mind as well.
I love the sound of rain on my tin roof but I don’t need to hear it every day. It has rained, and I don’t mean drizzled, all winter. The leak on our back porch has blossomed from plop plop drops to a permanent spillway.
So it is time to put down my books for awhile, pick up my garden tools, badger my husband to deal with household repairs, and take a vacation.
I will return online in May and look forward to checking out what everyone else has been doing. The cabin will have a pretty new pressure wash and fresh staining, the back porch with have a new roof, and my mind will be freshly fluffed and ready to read.
Here are some titles I have lined up to read when in the near future.
Brass, A Novel by Xhenet Aliu
Endurance: A Year In Space, A Lifetime Of Discovery by Scott Kelly
Sing, Unburied, Sing by Jesmyn Ward
Silver Sparrow by Tayari Jones
Tumbling Sisters by Juliette Fay
