Sunday Reflections (March 7)
Oh my goodness it's March people! Time is just whizzing by lately. There has been lots going on here lately. Last weekend I spent making pizzelles for a baby shower at work. The mother-to-be is a good friend of mine which is why I made pizzelles off-season. They were such a pain in the butt!
I also had to furiously work to finish her gift. I knitted her a baby blanket. The pattern is the Modern Baby Blanket from Mason Dixon Knitting. This suits her well since she is modern and minimalistic. And yes, it's a girl. Here's a not so good picture of said blanket:
As far as reading goes, it's been up and down lately; either really good or bor-ing! I did pick up some books from the library. I had place holds on these books when I was snowed in back in February. The books I picked up are:
The Secret History of the Pink Carnation by Lauren Willig.
I've been wantign to read this one since it came out.
Deadly Love by Brenda Joyce. (Recommend by Stacybuckeye)
City of Bones by Cassandra Clare. I've seen and heard about this trilogy all over the web so I thought why not give them a try.
Gosh I love my library!
I am currently reading The Stolen Crown by Susan Higginbotham and totally loving it. Her writing is free and easy and the characters are great story tellers.
I have a review of The Highlander's Sword by Amanda Forester, scheduled for tomorrow and a contest going up on Tuesday, so be sure and check back for that. Later this week I may have a review for The Scarlett Lion by Elizabeth Chadwick. Was not crazy about this one...at all. I am always the odd ball, aren't I? Oh well, at least I'm honest.
That's about it. Hope all of you have a lovely week and as always, thank you so much for stopping by. I greatly appreciate it :)
