Catching up...

Well, let's see...what's going on around here?

Not too much in the way of house duty, although I did buy a few more flowers for the back garden and some Dianthus for out in front around our little sapling tree. But progress on other things, such as the priming/painting of the upstairs future baby room has stalled for the moment. It's just been hectic.

Today, I traveled, which this blog is not about...but, I did want to mention that I finally bought and started reading a book that I'd been told by many that I should read for a long, long time, and that is "Devil in the White City." Those who know that Daniel Burnham quote up above as being my life motto and all-time favorite quote, in particular, have told me they couldn't believe I hadn't picked up the book and read it yet.

But, I read for a living, so it's tough to come home and read more in books. That said, they were right. So far, it's been a fantastic book. I'll give more of a "review" when I finish.

For now, I'm off to bed. :)

It really is a fantastic book. In fact, it's one of my favorites. I'm glad you've picked it up!

Wow...I have had that book on my shelf for a few years and have yet to read it....Time to pick it up!

Part of it was the fact that everyone said it was so fantastic, that I was a bit skeptical, so I avoided it. But we'll see...I like it, mostly, so far...but of course, there are things that I could do without...like I said, more of a review when I actually finish the book. :)

Andrea, I'll race ya! :)
