Hello April

Philosophy for April! Ease up on myself a bit. Quit trying to force so much in.  Let my stress subside.  Focus on what's important.

Things I'm looking forward to:

New read: The Coral Thief by Rebecca Stott   I absolutely must have something enjoyable to read while soaking in the bath or while settling down and getting ready to fall asleep.  The more enjoyable the better.  I hope this one will do it for me this month.

Baking: A meyer lemon white chocolate tart.  Did you know that Wal-Mart sells a whole bag of the most gorgeous organic meyer lemons you've ever seen?  At least they do on occasion, and on every occasion I cannot resist buying a bag.  Last time I made lemon bars.

A new roof.  Sadly, this did not occur in March.  So I hope it will in April.

Writing, writing, writing.  My novelizing in March was pitiful.  So I plan to throw myself into it relentlessly in April.  And thus, you may see a little less of me here in blogland.  For that I'm sorry, but my creative soul can only do so much at one time.

More planning for Paris!  Time to scout out places to stay and get passports in order.


  1. Martha had an amazing looking cake that uses Meyer lemons this month:

  2. I once went to Paris. I even spent the night, but not under the Eiffel Tower. It seems we stayed on Boulevard Saint-Germain in a hotel within a walking distance of Esplanade des Invalides and Parc du Champs de Mars. Ah yes, Paris in the Springtime. I hope you have fun walking along the Seine River. As Anna de Noailles, the great French poet wrote: Il n'est rien de réel que le rêve et l'amour.
