Books and Birds...
It is a beautiful drizzly day. The snow has finally melted off the ground and I am starting to believe that spring may actually be around the corner. This month I have had my head buried in books and my hands stained by paint. I have started flats upon flats of flower seeds and they are laying next to my husbands vegetables nice and warm under the lights. Our little chickens now have combs and the poor momma has to sit on top of her water to get away from the chicks trying to fly onto her back.
The days seem long with work, childrens sports, tending and art....I find myself grasping for daylight at the end of the day to accomplish things. I am teaching 2 art classes starting next month at our community center and am getting really excited. Our newspaper came over to interview me and take some photos for a write up on the classes. I can't wait and I hope all the seats fill up quickly.
Some of the books I have been reading this month.....
Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce
Intertwined by Gena Showalter
Black Hills by Nora Roberts
You Suck: A Love Story & Bloodsucking Fiends: A Love Story by Christopher Moore
I am just starting Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen
