Things I'm lookin forward to in March [Feb. 28th, 2010|07:05 pm]
-Doesn't "March" just sound better than "February?"
-of course, being a dork on Dr. Seuss's birthday, which is also Aunt Shirley's 85th birthday
-probably being a dork on Brittany's birthday, too
-spring! Dude! Spring!
-Passover, its wide range of associated (and often delicious... and sometimes not so delicious...) traditions, and its associated time with my family and Jamie
-books and kids and kids and books and books about kids and kids who like books. I suppose this fits into the category of...
-everything that was already good. (Writing also fits in here. So do friends.)
And of course, there's always...
-all the good stuff I don't know about yet.

And what are you looking forward to in March?

It's been a busy enough January that the relative emptiness of this weekend feels really strange. It's also been busy enough that it seems like a good time to update!

After starting the month in Rhode Island, where I'd just sung New Year's Eve away with Johanna's very extended family, I returned to Brookline for just over a week. And then it was off to Hudson for...

Write Those Winter Blues Away, an overnight writing retreat with Sandy and Brittany. It's a simple but effective concept, really: get together and away from the rest of life, spend some time writing and some time talking about it, and do some chatting and eating and playing in between. We had a great time, and my head's been in better writing space since.

The next weekend was The Weekend of Everything. Sarah, Elizabeth, Becka, and Johanna came to town, the original impetus for their visit being the Harry Potter exhibit at the Museum of Science. We saw that, the Mapparium, and various eateries around Boston, and had a really great time together. Some of the group also went to other classic Bostonian sites while others experienced Boston at its childlittiest (which is saying a lot). I was able to renew a few old connections at ALA and the Simmons reunion event, and enjoyed Newberies and Blueberries at Brittany and Emily's.

Thank you, everyone who's been part of my January!

Current book: Letters to Wendy's, by Joe Wenderoth. (Blame my sister. Also, I wonder if he changed his name to match the title.)

The house was loud. The individuals were loud. The pockets of people were loud.

The turkeys were overstuffed. The house was overstuffed. We were overstuffed.

The jokes were old. We're getting old.

Yup. It was Thanksgiving just as it should be.

Hope yours was, too.

Good Things [Nov. 6th, 2009|04:34 pm]
Just 'cause.

-It was a pretty day, and I took pretty walks.

-Johanna and Penina's very thoughtful gradumabirthday gift arrived.

-Emily and I will be seeing Fiddler on the Roof starring Topol next week.

-My usual round of Thanksgiving travels begin in 18 days.

-I have grand plans involving olive oil, garlic, and the veggies in the fridge. And the junk food that abounds in this apartment will probably also play a part in my evening.

-The weather can be counted upon to be a Good Thing fairly frequently, and food almost always can.

Current book (from my mom, who is a Good Thing): The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society
