I really hoped to blog before now, but Jacob came home for a long weekend and didn’t leave til Tuesday and with one thing and another it is Thursday already. There was a big snowstorm forecast for today, but I think it will yield very much less than predicted, which is good. I love to see a pretty snowfall, but we already have so much snow. When the kids were little they would have loved these huge piles from plowing.
My days just seem to be dissolving lately, and there is not much to blog about. Besides which, I thought I would write this blog post this morning when I felt much spiffier, and now my brain is wanting to be done for the day. I am going to make a quick chicken chili for supper and then Jack and I will watch American Idol, which I’m just very disappointed in this year for various reasons. Even Harry Connick, Jr. can’t make up for the things I dislike, and if anything could, he would. I was shocked at the girls’ night this week, coming away with not one favorite, absolutely no one I am interested in. The boys were much better. I guess tonight I am just curious who people voted for, who will stay in the competition.
I’ve been wanting to share my to-read book list, so I will do that soon, but in the meantime will mention one book I’m almost finished with. Angie Smith’s Mended. I really enjoy her style of writing and have a handful more books of hers I have not read yet. If you haven’t heard of her, she is the wife of Todd Smith of the group Selah and writes for various (in)courage blogs as well as her own blog, Bring the Rain. Mended is just a really good book that I can identify with a lot.
