It's winter break! School is out, the twins are home, my husband has a couple of days off... there may not be much blogging this week. Our main activities will include college visits with Twin A (Twin B gets her turn in April), reading, catching up on movies, shopping, trying a few new recipes, and walking in the snow.
I finished a couple of books last week - Marcelo in the Real World by Francisco X. Stork and Sarah's Key by Tatiana de Rosnay. So now, in addition to Let The Great World Spin by Colum McCann, I'm three reviews behind. One morning must be devoted to reviews!
Today I'm reading The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick - a novel in words and pictures. The size of the book shocked me when I picked it up at the library (over 500 pages, hardcover), but it looks like it can easily be read in a day. Not sure where I'll turn after that...
And finally, a winter weather tidbit. Baltimore edged out Syracuse, NY last week for first place in the snowiest city in the US competition! Syracuse has received about 76" so far and we're on track to receive out usual 120 inches. Baltimore was at 79.9" on February 10. I'm sure this is a competition they would rather not win! Read all about it here.
I hope you're enjoying this Valentine's Day. Are you reading, having a romantic dinner, or maybe digging out from the latest round of snow?
