I am trapped within the pages of a great book, and I don't really want to get out. My teenage boy asked me to read it and it seems to be getting under my skin. I should be cleaning out the coop, transplanting seedlings and putting up that new fence...but instead I am reading. I can't even give any detail out about the book just in case someone may want to read it. I find myself constantly thinking how my interpretation of this book differs from my son's. I can't wait to finish it and then we can sit down and talk about it.
So much is happening here...prom, wisdom teeth, new back-splash in the kitchen and the possibility of a second car may be in our future....but for now I will go ignore the laundry and dishes and go bury my nose in the book!

ha! I'm the same way. If I get engrossed in a good book (heck - even a bad book!) I won't be seen again till it's done!

The only bad thing about a good book is the feeling you have that there will be no other book as good as the one you just finished.
I have been so busy outside and I haven't checked blogs in a while. But today is raining and I did a bit of catch up. I am really impressed with your seeds! You have a wonderful shelf with lights. And your chickens are beautiful! You have so many different ones! I got 2 ameraucana and 2 red leghorn. They are so cute and they are growing fast!
I can't believe you had snow a few weeks ago!

Yup, do the same thing. Have you read Garden Spells by Sarah Addison Allen? If you get a chance, you will love it.

And thank so much for all your sweet comments, I just got a few minutes to go through your blog and you just have to be the cutest thing ever!

I love, love, love this book! One of my favorites. Neil even liked it and he is definitely not a reader. I own the second book if you want to borrow it. :)
