Mystery Book Stores

I love mystery book stores and so does Sara City. Her book store visits are being featured on the Short Story page.  If you haven't heard me say this before, Sara is what I do to procrastinate when I should be writing.

What to do when it rains...


 Clean book shelves, discover missplaced books, read!

For collectors of children’s books, check out this site with its array of info and articles about book collecting. Now if I can clear another couple inches on a book shelf, maybe I can squeeze in another book. This month I have been rereading my way through the Mary Poppins books (yes, I have them all). And yes, I was inspired by the wonderful Saving Mr. Banks movie.

Two days a week to skinny?

Anyone can diet for two days a week, even me. I am currently reading a great book of recipes, plus menus total 500 calories a day.  Five days a week eat your regular choices. And wow, this has been tested and results are way above average. Anyhow, back to the cookbook, it is a delight with color photos of tempting dishes and all recipes are followed by a breakdown of serving size, calories, list of fat and cholesterol and sodium and all that stuff, laid out in large print and easy peasey to read and follow.

If I can stick to this, who knows, I may be dancing with the stars, them on TV, me in my living room. I might even again fit into those clothes I have retired to the back of my closet.

Oh right, what's the cookbook. It is The 2 Day a Week Diet Cookbook by Nancy Baggett & Ruth Glick who created and tried out all the recipes and menus, so if you see either of them, be sure to mention how svelte they are!

Happy lost sleep to all!

We are leaping forward an hour at midnight March 6 and whatever happened to the equinox which doesn't get here until March 20? Or was it never part of daylight saving time? It is certainly part of March madness, which includes exciting days not worth celebrating, like ides of March, record rainfall in one day, etc. I am okay with changes that are permanent, or even every four years, and here I refer to February 29, not the other four year thing. But twice a year? First we lose an hour's sleep and then we gain an extra hour to work. It is like the people in charge can't make up their minds. Okay, I better quit before someone sends me a crabby email.

Sugar high...

Slightly overwhelmed today. Fkbooksandtips.com is featuring Tyrant Trouble today on their free book listings.

And peoplereads.com is featuring Demonspell on their recommended list today.

I need to go make cocoa and cut myself a slice of pumpkin bread for breakfast. It is going to take a lot of sugar to get me through today.

Breakfast by streetlight

A fact from this fantasy writer. This is how my grandmother timed boiled eggs...
