Look what happened now...
Ready, Set, Jet!
Now I have to read the book.....
Are you watching the series too?
Sakura is the national flower of Japan, the cherry blossom – translated into Sakura, represents a time of renewal and optimism. The proud pink blossoms mark the end of winter and signify the beginning of spring. Due to their quick blooming season, cherry blossoms also symbolize the transience of life, which is a major theme in Buddhism.
I believe mine are ornamental plum but they are still a very pretty way to welcome Spring!
We had snow last week and you can see the blooms are not as intense or colorful as normal, but still, nature finds a way.
Enjoy your weekend!
Okay, it might be wishful thinking as we had snow on the 16th, lol But the calendar says Spring is here and I'm going with it!
Hope you have an amazing Spring where ever you are in the world!
I will be back soon with more reviews and maybe some actual trip pictures!
It's really a beautiful weekend in the Southwest! I've been spending as much time as possible outside, but when it's time to come in these are the things I'm obsessing over.
Here is a quick weekend round-up of what I'm reading, watching, and eating!
What I'm Reading: Reaper Man (Discworld, 11)by Terry Pratchett
I'm more or less a fan of Terry Pratchett - but I need small doses at a time of his British wit. My goal is to read all the 41 Discworld books, I think I've read about 4-5 so far. (I better get with it, no?) Currently, I'm about 110 of 352 pages in this novel and enjoying the book more than I expected. I will do a full review once I'm finished. In the meantime, you can read my review of Good Omens here.
What I'm Watching: Resident Alien
Looking for something new to watch? Anything that isn't depressing? I highly recommend this quirky comedy from the Syfy channel. This alien romp is based on a Darkhorse comic book series created by Peter Hogan and Steve Parkhouse. (Which now I believe I MUST read.) It stars Alan Tudyk and a talented cast of misfits. The comic series has been published by Dark Horse Comics in installments of four-issue miniseries since 2012. Five miniseries have been completed, and a concluding sixth miniseries is forthcoming. The tv series premise: After crash-landing on Earth, an alien takes on the identity of a small-town Colorado doctor and wrestles with the moral dilemma of his secret mission, while also dealing with a 9-year-old boy who is the only person who can recognize he is an alien.

And speaking of aliens...
What I'm Cooking: Vegan Chickpea Cookie Dough (So much better than it sounds!)
Truth - I'm not a fan of cookie dough. I know some people would rather eat raw cookie dough than bake the damn cookies. (I'm not one of them.) But then I found this vegan, raw cookie dough recipe, and all that changed. This healthy alternative makes a nice dip or can be eaten alone as a snack. The simple recipe is here: Cookie Dough but be warned, you will be making this regularly.
Have a great weekend!
This post contains links to buy the book on Amazon, I receive a few pennies if you purchase (the price doesn't change for you) and it helps to offset the cost of the website.
Hey ~ How are you?
I had a pretty good night's rest, although I was up late watching the storm blow in. I woke up to a steady snowfall for the first couple of hours, but the rest of the day has just been gray and dreary. But it's okay because I actually love this kind of weather, it makes my heart happy, plus its a great weather for reading!
Another reason for my happiness today is I knew that TACOS were on the menu for dinner. And yes, seriously, I could in fact eat tacos every day, and be a happy woman. I eat pretty healthy with the exception to my taco addiction, lol
So as the snow falls and I eat ANOTHER taco I thought I would share my reading results for 2020.
So in between eating taco and working I managed to read a few books in 2020. Some of these books I even managed to review here! Click here to read reviews: BOOK REVIEWS
As you can see I am an eclectic reader. Some of these were read for work, some were recommended from friends and others just showed up. The Tim Conway book was funny and touching (reviewed here) the Iron Druid series by Kevin Hearn (review here) is always a fun way to escape and Neil Gaiman is always a good bet for a snowy day (review here.) I also ended up with an airfyer for my birthday and I really needed the cookbooks!
Before I started the Goodreads Reading Challenge that I had no idea what or how much I was reading month to month. (I would have guessed a lot more books than I actually was reading.) I'm not a big tv person, but its easy to fall down a HBO or Netflix rabbit hole and not crack open a book all weekend. The yearly challenges keep me on track and reading more than just work stuff. If you are on Goodreads send me a friends request and we can follow each other and if you have any reading recommendations I'm always up for that too!
Now back to those tacos..Speak soon~
