Now what?

Resolutions made: check.

Calorie-rich food frozen, tossed in the pail or fed to the birds: check.

Trees and decorations returned to storage: check.

House cleaned: check.

Thank you cards written and mailed: check.

Hmm ... it seems as if the holidays are "officially" behind us in the Leone household. Bt now that everything's been squared away I've got to admit I'm not quite ready to jump into any big, new projects.

Oh, right ... this might be the lull after the storm. Now I remember. Kathy mentioned it on Wednesday, didn't she? I think she may have hit the nail right on the head. I know I'm ready to kick back and take it easy. For a few days, at least.

This might be the perfect time to catch up on my reading. I got a lot of great books for Christmas and since it's too cold to even venture outside... Yes, the perfect time for reading.

But then anytime is the perfect time for reading, isn't it? Oh, what am I reading? I've just finished The Golden Tulip by Rosalind Baker. I loved it! Now I think I'll read a Diana Gabaldon, the latest in the Lord John series. I can't think of the name of the book offhand, I'm sorry. It's the new one. My godmother sent it to me for Christmas and I've been itching to dive into it. I believe today's the day! Because really, anytime I ask myself Now what? the answer is only a few pages away!

What are you reading? I'm always on the lookout for recommendations to satisfy my reading curiousity.

Have a great weekend!

Reading always sounds good to me. :)

You ladies put me to shame, you are all so on top of things. Have not done anything yet, I might start tomorrow...or maybe the next day.

I am reading Jonathan Kellerman's "Bad Blood" an Alex Delaware thriller. I do like this character but not as much as my all time favourite Harry Bosch!

Hi Brenna!

I just finished re-reading The Wolf and the Dove. Right before the holidays I ordered some of Kathleen E. Woodiwiss's older books that I fell in love with, because I was too stupid at the time to hold on to them!

PS - Sarita, I gave my blog a face lift which included a new url. So I guess you can say I have a new blog. Anyway, please change the url to the one below when you get the chance. Thanks!

I'm watching movies -- the BBC version of Pride & Prejudice with Colin Firth followed by Bridget Jones's diary also with Colin Firth.

Kathleen, That is my ALL time favourite P and P. It knocks all other versions into a cocked hat.
Colin Firth as Darcy...ah, ah, swoon...Far better than the guy in the film. Also the actress playing Lizzie is the best ever too. People should remember Austen - Lizzie was NOT a beauty but she had a fantastic personality. Jenniffer Eahrl has all that and more.
