Life: Whew, I Made It!

Life: Whew, I made it!Hello Friends,
I hope everyone had a lovely Valentine's day weekend.  The World Traveler's flight was cancelled on Friday so I watched a few foreign movies, went to the mall, and finished a book... a lovely day.
Sadly WT was stuck in a hotel, sick, ready to come home.
Snow: Thursday/Friday we received the gift of eighteen inches of new snow. It was heavy, wet snow that provided a good workout.
In this photo, I'm standing on top of 25-30 inches of packed snow.  We have so much on the other side of the yard, from shoveling the deck, that the dogs are struggling to be outside.
The World Traveler came home Saturday afternoon and said, "you should put your snowshoes on and packed down the snow for them".
This week: We are recovering our kitchen chairs today {whoop}, and planning dinner for up to twelve Thursday night.  I hope to get back outside, running/walking (we have 50F in the five day forecast).
I might start my seeds today - spring will be here soon.
Reading: I finished Endless Love on Friday.  I have SO much to say about this book.  Hopefully today I will find time to write reviews for several books. I'm behind...
Life: Whew, I made it!Goodnight June: I'm reading this gem this weekend.  I can't put it down... it's been ages since I've read a book that trumps daily life.  So happy it's Sarah Jio's book.  I adore her spirit for life.
Synopsis: Goodnight Moon is an adored childhood classic, but its real origins are lost to history. In Goodnight June, Sarah Jio offers a suspenseful and heartfelt take on how the "great green room" might have come to be.

June Andersen is professionally successful, but her personal life is marred by unhappiness. Unexpectedly, she is called to settle her great-aunt Ruby’s estate and determine the fate of Bluebird Books, the children’s bookstore Ruby founded in the 1940s. Amidst the store’s papers, June stumbles upon letters between her great-aunt and the late Margaret Wise Brown—and steps into the pages of American literature.
