Mailbox Monday ~ January 23rd
After several years of being on tour with different blogs as the monthly host, the Mailbox Monday Blog is now the permanent home for the meme.
I received a nice variety of books last week — a thriller and a humorous non-fiction book about books. Plus audiobooks on two of my favorite topics — gardening and birds.
Speaking of gardening, a burst of warm air arrived in Chicago on Saturday giving me the opportunity to get outside and re-pot a few of my plants that I had hastily brought in before the frost last fall. It was invigorating to breath the fresh, spring-like air. If only it would stick around.
