I'm a bit scattered today, so I'm posting some odds and ends.
First up - I've been reading again. I must admit that I have been a bit ADD in my reading. I currently have four books under way, which is a lot for me. I'm in the middle of: The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, The Mysterious Benedict Society, The Help, and The Hemingses of Monticello. Plus I have three New Yorkers that I'm working on. But I have managed to finish three books and post them over on my book blog - Plenty More Books Inside.
Second - My friend Kate had a baby two weeks ago and then ended up spending more than a week in a drug-induced coma thanks to a terrible post-partum infection that had a lot to do with mistakes made on many levels by doctors. It's a terrible story that isn't over yet. Baby Isaac is thriving, and Kate is on the mend, but she has a long road ahead of her in terms of recovery. If you have a moment, stop by her blog and wish her well.
Third - I had another post, this one about my inability to sit still, picked up by Deep South Moms. You can read it here.
I think that's all for now. I'm going to go back to watching a mama owl hatch her babies.
