I'm reading, " The Book Thief," by Markus Zusak and would certainly recommend it as a good read - written from an unusual perspective. There is a book meme on some blogs at the moment, but I will only loosely follow that cause it doesn't serve the purpose of endearing this book to others. It does have 123 or more pages - 584 in fact, but what is written on the 5th sentence on page 123 won't give you any enticement to read it so instead I will pick another extract.

The flower blocks are gradually having all sorts of different centres added. I have 35 blocks made ; about 20 now have centres. Am I going to assemble them just in rows or am I going to add sashing? Straight or on point? I'm playing with them.
39 more mls of rain yesterday. The total for the month of February was about 6.5 inches for us. You can really HEAR things growing.( weeds included )
I'm really enjoying others ,"Where I'm From," blogs and the Book Reviews. Thanks all for your comments. I now officailly have too many blogs I like to read, what a lovely problem! I also like the daily photo sites. Keep writing everyone and add those photos that give life to your words!
