I've spent some time in the past few days doing some blog remodeling. Once warmer weather is here for good, there is less time for indoor activities... now is the time to finish some work I've been wanting to do since Blogger gave us new options.
You will notice there are now numerous pages underneath the blog header. By making these available, it will simplify locating archives for favorite subjects. I'm impressed (and humbled) by those who have read through 3 1/2 years worth of posts but I'm hoping this will help a lot.
All the pages are ready except My Home and Family, those pictures will be available very soon. By putting together these pages, I was able to declutter the sidebar a lot.
I didn't have a lot of reading time recently but I did finish Miss Buncle's Book and thoroughly enjoyed it. I think I smiled most of the way through it, especially the second half. I hope to begin Miss Buncle Married today. Stevenson is a brilliant writer. This book reminded me of Barbara Pym's writing which combines good literature and wit. I'm also planning on reading Mrs. Tim Christie before the month ends and one or two more if time permits. I can't thank my blog friends who gifted these to me enough, lovely author!
I'm not certain what nonfiction author I'll concentrate on in April but May is looking like the month when I'll re-read Jan Karon's Mitford novels. May is the big gardening month here so the Mitford books will be just right... light and wonderful to re-read while resting from putting the raised bed garden in. :)
The lost-to-me title of the book I read which inspired the "living off the financial grid" way of life is still lost. My good friend, BB, is also helping by researching as I try to research and remember.
