Here we are at the end of another week and once again the weatherman is using four letter words for the weekend: rain and snow! Right now I write with windows and doors open at 70 degrees. This morning was windy, but the wind died down this afternoon making the last hours near perfect! I snatched a fresh air nap, we walked the dog, and now DH is anchored in front of March Madness Basketball!
Our days have been centered around our Death Row Doggie. She likes it here and is pretty nice about most of our rules. Biscuit still has some fear of vehicles and strangers but she gets better each week. She hates going to bed and becomes violently playful about 8 p.m. She is then like a hyper four year old. No amount of play is enough. So by 10:00 we all fall into bed exhausted!
We brought DH's winter project into the house this week. He made a bedside table to replace a lace tablecloth covered stand. This is quite a different look and we both like it. We have a lot of other projects on the list yet, but this made a good winter one since it was small and his shop was closed due to weather more days this winter.
In my writing world, I edited a short story I want to submit for a historical romance contest, but nothing new got written. :(
Last weekend I returned to reading which had been sparse this winter due to many interruptions. I read Weekends with Georgia O'Keeffe by a woman who had been employed at Abiquiu
for about seven years. The artist ate very healthy food she grew and cooked herself. She was a unique woman.
Then I went to The Woman Who Watches Over the World by Linda Hogan. This was a memoir by a poet and writer who had a most unusual childhood. She was part Native American and she writes of the conflicts of cultures she experienced. She adopted two Native American daughters and both had serious issues adapting. The book was interesting but hard to read about so many problems.
Then I moved back into a book I am reading about the political atmosphere of the times of Jesus. Wow, I don't understand all of that history. It is heavy stuff. However, I guess crooked leaders and selfish people have been around so long I doubt if we get rid of them!
So the weekend is here and most of March is gone. Now to see if it is a snowy weekend and if more reading is on tap. Have a great weekend ahead readers--with good books if necessary.
