Ready for a New Month
Ready for a new month:
As my months go February wasn't bad at all but I am glad we are just a few weeks way from spring. I could stand to see some spring flowers and it will be nice to open windows and take longer walks.
With the arrival of spring comes a whole host of new books by our favorite authors and new authors. I just finished reading THE CHRISTIE CURSE by Victoria Abbott, I love this new series. I hope you will add this book to your reading list.
I just started reading A DEADLY GRIND by Victoria Hamilton so far I count myself lucky to another good book to read.
I am also trying to finish up A KILLER READ by Erika Chase and this is another series that has my heart. I hope by reading these wonderful books that this is a sure sign my spring actually will be something to look forward to and I think it will.
On a personal note my son Jay, graduates from college this spring and will be moving to Nebraksa to go to law school. I will finally be able to tackle the spare room and do something with my mother's belongings so maybe I can have more than a path in that room. I am also cross stitching a small spring piece that I hope to have finished over the next week.
March also is a big birthday month in our family. We have two daughter's with birthdays and three children with wedding anniversaries. Then I have two grandchildren with birthdays for the month of March. I think this should nicely fill my month.
Lots to look forward to but I do live in Kansas which means it's also tornado season so I don't put up my hanging baskets or plant my flowers until at least April sometimes May.
I look forward to getting out and about this spring as I have been shut in too long this winter. I finally replaced my car that my daughter wrecked last fall and one of the main things I look forward to is spending more time at the local library.
I look forward to interviewing more authors for our blog, hearing all about Malice Domestic and I recently as in just yesterday have an idea for a new mystery series. The research and writing the book ought to be a ton of fun. I started a little of the research last night. I'm already hooked and can't wait to delve into deeper research, of course writing the book will be a fun project.
Also I have to say I look forward to eating the spring/ summer fruits. I love watermelon and cantaloupe but plenty of other things as well...so finally we are close to saying goodbye to winter and embracing spring.
Now if I can just keep the sinus headaches, sneezes and clogged head at bay this might be the best spring I have had in a few years.
