And Spring also means Easter. Today and tomorrow are bread-baking marathon days. Some for the baked french toast I'll be making for Easter brunch, and some for giving away. My sample loaf last week went over well with my taste testers, so I'm using the same recipe. Stay tuned for an update on all this yummy goodness!
Spring, however, does not mean I stop knitting with wool!....

The Last Time They Met by Anita Shreve: I suffered through this one.
The Amazon description is:
"From the last time Linda and Thomas meet, at a charmless hotel in a distant city, to the moment, thirty-five years earlier, when a chance encounter on a rocky beach binds them fatefully together, this hypnotically compelling novel unfolds a tale of intense passion, drama, and suspense. " My take on it: It was non-hypnotic, depressing and blah. I just didn't enjoy the story line.
I have had mixed personal reviews of Anita Shreve's books. Some I have liked, some I have not. I loved Light on Snow (see my blog review here).

I am going to participate in the NaBloPoMo (National Blog Posting Month) in April, which means I will be posting every day for the whole month. That's the goal anyway! The idea of this is to get writing and re-juvenate my ideas for the blog. The theme for April is "Fresh" since spring gives us a fresh start etc. My posts may or may not have to do with the theme (they don't have to), and I'll just see where it takes me. So, just warning you (or delightfully informing you, if that's the case) that there will be a lot of posting going on. After that, I'll go back to my regular programming.
