I am taking the afternoon off to go pick up Oldest from school and... seriously, how did it happen that he's finished his freshman year already? I'm getting So Old, y'all. (Cue motivation to get back to the weight-lifting so I can keep keeping up with the HoB... ugh. So not my thing to do, but it *does* help.)

Turning to something that *is* my thing to do:

What I'm Reading Now

Maisie Dobbs, Jacqueline Winspear -- I just opened the book last night, so I don't have anything to say about it yet, but I *did* get it from the library (instead of letting the hold expire as it has the last 2 times I put it on reserve, go me?)

Continuing on with In The Kitchen With A Good Appetite, Melissa Clark -- it's my sitting-in-doctor/dentist/orthodontist book, and there's been only minimal need for it this past week.

Also, I started re-reading The Great Gatsby, in prep for the movie (which I am dragging boys to see in between the super-heroes of the summer.)


What I Just Finished
Pride and Prejudice, a re-read for #2's homeschool lit class. I must say, it remains *very* satisfying to watch Caroline Bingley's schemes backfire and kill all her social-climbing aspirations through her uncontrollable need to diss Lizzie.


What I'm Reading Next
Finishing up things started, plus I sorted through Tracy/Teresa Grant's Regency spy novels for my mom (when she changed publishers, there were copyright issues and thus the characters names changed along with her pen name and it took a bit of research to sort it all out, but what's not to love about married spies?) and have the first one (Daughter of the Game) on the way from the library.
