This Week // 4.04.14

My latest obsession… Susanna Kearsley novels. They kinda have it all. First you have your typical gothic historical fiction-- English/Scottish characters, old castle/estate, something sinister, a little romance-- And then she throws in Time-travel, Reincarnation, Telepathy and other fun stuff. It gets a little complicated, so I like seeing how it all ends up working out. If you're a fan of Diana Gabaldon's The Outlanders series, these are not of the same realm, but they are well-written and an addictive read. My fave is The Winter Sea… Then The Firebird.

If it has lemon and poppyseed, I will want it. Drool. Slurp. Nom-nom-nom.

We had a cold-snap this week and I've been freezing!  Weather-wimp… I know. To stay warm and hydrated, I've been sucking down gallons of this stuff. The flavor is mild and not sour, which is key for me. After reading about how good it is for you, anti-oxidant properties and all, I've also tried some flavored varieties-- This zulu peach is pretty darn good. And if you like coconut, this one is good too.

Bliss Bloom… Briefs??? And look, a thong version too. They're actually kind of pretty… Only the best for my readers! Creativity happens when you slip on your Bliss Bloom Bloomers. Hah! Every now and then I think about changing my blog name. But now that there's underwear with the same name… It's a keeper.  ;)

You know it's truly Spring when the peonies arrive. I'm hoping they'll be here by the end of this month. In the meantime, these paper ones look amazingly real.

Have a great weekend!
