Welcome to the Gaggle of Girls NaBloPoMo for March! Posting every day in March shouldn’t be too difficult – lots of great new books to review, lots of positive thoughts as Spring arrives, and only 21 days until my birthday! I will be entering my “late 30′s”, and I feel both younger and older than that.

My new iPod

Have you ever noticed that the mail comes in themes?  Sometimes it’s all bills, sometimes all cards, and sometimes all packages. Friday had some definite highlights; the mail and package delivery was bountiful and wonderful. You know you’ve got a chance at a great day when you get packages from the Post Office, UPS, and FedEx!

I received 4 packages of books – a gorgeous cookbook for review (Passover by Design), a set of children’s books, an advance reader copy of the newest book from an author I love, and another fascinating book for review. I love books, so 4 packages of books is a wonderful abundance!

B gets an annual bonus, and after dealing with bills, each of us gets a little treat. He got some new shoes, the girls got some new clothes, and, um, I got an iPod nano. Isn’t it nice to be me? Of course, it was on sale, I had a coupon, etc etc etc. The Nano arrived yesterday, and it’s pictured with the silicone protector and the armband so I can listen to podcasts and audiobooks as I’m cooking. Wheeee!

Our own Arctic Tundra 2

Today started with B and the girls letting me sleep in, light snow falling, and then waking up to a few great books to read. After my time snuggling in, I drove past our own arctic tundra, and went to an optometrist. I have a bunch of eye and other medical issues (they xeroxed my list of meds…), so I’ve always seen ophthalmologists, but with our insurance I need to see an optometrist first. I had very low expectations, and I was amazed – this optometrist was wonderful, and she managed to get my vision corrected better than anyone else has done! In exchange, she got to see some interesting medical conditions that she has only read about previously.

I tried on several types of glasses while I was at the optical shop. I found the types of glasses I preferred, and then came home. I had written a post about inexpensive glasses, and so I ordered a couple pairs of glasses from the online store (with BG’s fashionista help). If they don’t work out, I’ll buy some locally, but the price couldn’t be beat! We have done a bit of research on colored lenses and dyslexia/reading difficulties, so we decided to pick up a pair of rose-colored-glasses for BG. Her reading has improved immensely this year, but if colored lenses help further that would rock, and if they don’t, then she has some pretty sunglasses.

Meanwhile, don’t forget to enter the book giveaway! Everyone needs a good giggle, and that book will give you several.

The final mail-time wait is waiting for my faux-Ugg-boots to come – EMU Australia Lo Boot, which should arrive on Monday in time to keep my toesies warm when I go into Boston to see Felicia and get my copy of her book, The Sky Isn’t Visible from Here signed. I’ll also get some coffee and maybe some dinner with Sue, never mind the joy of a quiet train ride alone in and out of the city.

Yay, I’m glad you are joining us! It will be a beautiful thing… to post and yet be without words. :)

Coming here from NaBloPoMo — I’m really looking forward to reading your book reviews. I’m always looking for new authors to read, and in fact, my first post for the month was the short list of books I’ve read in the last month.

And, oh, it is nice to get packages. That’s one of the things I miss about Christmas — I do most of my shopping online, and coming home to several packages on the front porch and more in the mail is fun, even if it’s not for me!

Hey girl!
I’m actually going to be in Cambridge (Harvard Bookstore). Can’t wait to see you!
Cheers, Felicia

I received a pair of uggs on sale for Christmas and after only wearing them sporadically (and never really in wet weather) for little more than a year, a hole developed in one boot. I was disappointed that they did not last longer for the price you pay and the expectations of a good quality boot.
