I thought I'd make up a list of my favorite books so then people could read them and then we could talk about how awesome a book it is.  This post was originally supposed to be a paper post but unfortunately it didn't work out.  Anyway here is the list:

The Education of Robert Nifkin  
By Daniel Pinkwater

The Neddiad 
(and the sequels)
By Daniel Pinkwater  

His Dark Materials trilogy 
By Phillip Pullman

The Ruby in the Smoke

The Book Thief
By Markus Zusak

The Mysterious Benedict Society
(and sequels)
By Trenton Lee Stewart

The Emerald Atlas
By John Stephens (just finished)

I have only included my all time favorite books here to keep things short.  And The Emerald Atlas I thought I should include just because I just finished it and its still in my mind. Thanks.

Is This Not Paradise?

Now it stopped snowing and the sun has come out Newfoundland seems more inhabitable.
Minky the cat

Who wouldn't want this view?

Because I'm helping with the gardening I have been assured that peas will be planted.

Haiku to sum everything up.

sunny cold weather,
beautiful black cats sleeping,
maybe some veggies.

The Winner Has Been Picked

A few weeks ago I had some extra yarn that I had spun, so I asked if anyone wanted it.  Well my own mother asked and I decided that she could have the orange skein.  Only one person won so I still have a blue skein of hand spun yarn, so if you want it please comment below and say what you would use it for. 

This is still unclaimed!

A Day at the Races

On Saturday I went to the horse races at Belmont (not Kentucky) and it was very strange. I would recommend it to anyone, the season has just started in NY and its very cheap if you don't bet. The only down side is that while I was there one of the horses fainted but they brought it back and everything was fine.
And thank you dad for letting me use your camera.

Its Been Found!

I recently posted about a tv show I've been trying to find, well I have succeed and here is the official description:

"The series is centered on Jess Mastriani, played by Caterina Scorsone, a woman in her twenties who receives psychic abilities after being hit by lightning. She is employed by a special FBI Task Force because she has visions which, once interpreted, contain clues that will help her find missing people."

Because I was the one who found it I am left with a surplus of prize yarn, if anyone wants it please comment and tell me what you would use it for.
