I know I just got home from a month in France, but I'm off this weekend to Big Sandy, Texas. It's the kindergarten graduation of my beautiful granddaughter, Annie, and we have a lovely celebration planned.
So, no, I haven't exactly gotten my reading mojo back after a month away in France, and I'm not likely to get a lot of reading done while I'm off with family in Big Sandy. But I did finish A Horse and His Boy, book #5 in the Narnia series, a little adventure with lots of (sigh) dated thoughts about women and girls and other cultures and going to war to solve problems. Probably my least favorite of the series so far...but, onward and upward, to book #6, The Magician's Nephew.
Another Year of Wonder: Classical Music for Everyday by Clemency Burton Hill (Nonfiction)
The Magician's Nephew by C. S. Lewis (Narniathon)
Mary Barton by Elizabeth Gaskell (Chapter-a-Day)
Le gentil petit diable et autres contes de la Rue Broca by Pierre Gripari (1001 Children's Books)
Last week I posted here at Readerbuzz:
My husband and I participated in the City Nature Challenge last weekend. At a nearby park, we came upon this Great Egret nest with two chicks.
We also volunteered at Quintana Beach Neotropical Bird Sanctuary for Spring Fling, a celebration of the spring migration there. My favorite bird was this Northern Parula who was crazy about the nectar from this Coral Bean plant and posed for us for many hours.
Good Thing #1
I was able to trade in my broken five-year-old Mac
for a $300 credit on a new Mac.
Good Thing #2
I love my new iPhone
that I bought in Paris after my other iPhone was stolen.
It's light purple, and it's French...
Good Thing #3
My broken camera is at the repair shop.
There is hope it will be fixed.
