It has been a rough year for Michigan fruit growers and it’s only likely to feel worse for them in the next few months when they have no fruit to sell in what would usually be the heart of the harvest season.
So does anybody remember these pants? Kudos if you do, it means you’re a long time reader, and you’ve been paying attention! Well, it took me 8 months, but I finally finished them.
- Lipstick- I only wear it once or twice a year…that’s enough to remind me that it’s messy and high maintenance. Problem is, I just loooove all the pretty colors…
- Writing implements- That line about a bouquet of freshly sharpened pencils? Yeah, I have enough pens, pencils, markers and highlighters to fill a garden at this point.
- Fabric- The picture in this post just hints at the fiber-hoarding I’ve been doing.
- Clothing- See above. I have the ability and certainly the supplies, besides, I already have too many clothes!
- Basically any cosmetics.
First off, let me say that, like Feed, this book is a part of a series, and because I’m a reading junkie, I’ve of course torn through a good portion of it. I’ve read 3 books out of the series so far and I’m pretty sure the 4th is kicking around the house here somewhere. I’m sure I’ll read it the next time I run out of reading when the library is closed. As to how many books there are in this series? I can’t rightfully say. A lot. This is a writer who seems to go quantity over quality all the way… but we’ll talk about that in a second.
10 days from today I’ll have been writing this blog for a year. I’ve really been enjoying it and have loved watching people discover it, and look forward to seeing it continue to grow. That being said, with my return to school, a year of posts under my belt and my second kiddo on the way, I think it’s time for me to slow the pace a little.
