Books, Books, Books

Yeah, yeah. Haven't posted in a while... Going to post more... Blah, blah, blah... etc. etc.

I recently told a certain Annie Watkins that she should start updating her blog, to which she responded that I should update my blog. So, here I am writing a blog post. If only Annie would, I don't know, say, take a picture of a valued possession of hers, and then post it on her blog (hint, hint, hint).

Anyways, who knows what this blog even is? I sure don't. Who am I even talking to? Myself? Most likely. What kind of person asks a question and then answers it themselves? I do. But in a larger sense, bad writers and conversationalists.

Well, now that's out of the way, here's a preview of what's to come:
Books, books, books
My newly acquired Fair Isle addiction
The most exciting post about Tulips you will ever read (and that's only a small exaggeration)
Lake Michigan
And photos. There will always be more photos.

In conclusion, I will probably be writing a bit more. Maybe. We'll see.

p.s. I am sick, so that is my excuse for the ridiculous nature of this post.

Deserted Mall



It felt post-apocalyptic

Spring Came on a Sunday

So, Spring started on Sunday. Not official Spring, but real Spring. Here's how I know:


On Sunday it was warm enough to go for a bike ride without a coat.
In the evening, we saw a raccoon in our backyard.
There was no snow anywhere.

Monday morning we were woken up by a bunch of birds making a racket. One bird, especially, made sure everyone in the neighborhood could hear him.

That afternoon I experienced my first tornado warning (the sirens blared up whilst we were on the walk pictured above). Allen and I got hit in the face by a thunderstorm.


Last night I sat on the back porch and listened to the frog croaks coming from the bog. I tried to count how many distinct calls I could pick out of the cacophony. I only got to 5.
I think I can do better than that tonight.


It's supposed to be in the upper 70's today.
It's supposed to get above 80 this weekend.
I think I'm going to wear a skirt to celebrate.
