Behold my first roses of the year. We planted eight rose bushes when we moved into our house three years ago and I am telling you, it’s all about the third year. They are laden with buds.
Other reasons why I am excited:
- It’s Friday and I am pregnant and tired.
- I scored a copy of The Lace Reader on LibraryThing’s early reviewer program. It doesn’t come out until July. This makes me very happy.
- Apparently, there is a new version of A Room with a View coming out on Masterpiece Theater on Sunday night. Of course I will DVR it but the mention of A Room with a View makes me nostalgic. My friend Gretchen Stoops introduced me to the 1986 film when we were freshman in high school, inspiring a lifetime love of E.M. Forester’s novels (Howard’s End, A Room with a View, and A Passage to India). My parents, however, when watching the movie with their enraptured daughter, were not so inspired by the naked men running around in the lake scene.
