Today, Doing Dewey has a guest reviewer’s take on Xamnesia: Everything I Forgot in my Search for an Unreal Life. Read it here: http://doingdeweydecimal.com/2015/07/08/review-xamnesia/
And I have a kid-free house for a few days, the Wonder Duo shipped out to Normandy to RELAX for their first week of summer holidays. I drove them out and for the first time, Vivie power chucked up apple and juice all over the back of my car. Luckily her plastic mini dollhouse caught a lot of it.
The reports from Normandy trickle in. Bea is reading a ton of books. Vivienne (she prefers Vivienne now, I can’t get away with Vivie anymore, she’s gone full French) is eating all the cherries off her grandparents’ tree. They’re making Book Hedgehogs for me – see featured image.
I’m catching up some reading too, I just finished Where’d You Go, Bernadette, which was fantastic after a slow start. I’m also immersed in Ed Cobleigh’s The Pilot: Fighter Planes and Paris. See: http://www.outandaboutinparis.com/2015/06/finding-hemingway-for-pilot-fighter.html for more.
But mainly I am cleaning up the house – there’s been another Art Avalanche here – the girls brought home all of their school year’s oeuvres… and eating whatever I darn well feel like.
