Ohhhhh Blogger

Well hello there. I've been a bit miffed with Blogger + Picasa deleting all of my old blog images, but I have decided to make amends with my dear Blogger and start writing again. A lot and I mean OH MY GOD a WHOLE LOT has changed since last I've blogged, so I'm trying to decide if I want to sort of start fresh, and make all of my old posts private, or just leave the whole facacta mess as is and call this a new beginning. 
This is me, wanting to slap the crap out of Blogger.

I Do Love Me Some Farmers Market Finds

I've officially visited 2 farmers markets so far this season.  You would think that living in the Garden State, I would do a lot more of this, and I will my pretties, I will!  Yesterday I took a little drive to the Springdale Farms Farmers Market in Cherry Hill to search for some Jersey Fresh tomatoes and corn to go with our BBQ Ribs for dinner. Here is my haul from yesterday.  Why YES that is a strawberry rhubarb pie and it was indeed delicious!

15 & 16

Apparently it's all Dean Koontz all the time around these parts. I have a habit of doing that, discovering a writer then reading all of their work in one long sitting, so this comes as no surprise :)

15: Watchers

16: Breathless

Since we're already 21 weeks into 2011, and I'm only just finishing book 16, I'd better double it up if I want to fit 52 in for the year!

4 of 52

Odd Thomas by Dean Koontz.  This is the first Koontz book that I've read & I can not wait to get through the others in the series. I'm loving the characters so far, and can't wait to see where the stories lead them.

Books 2 & 3 Down, 49 To Go

Helllloooooo!  I've been involved as of late with a bunch of books, but the 2 that I just finished last night were.

Please note that in this 52 in 52 project, I am not planning on reviewing books or give away any real details, just notes on how I felt about them.

2 of 52: Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen.  A lovely book that took (IMHO) a little while to ramp up into something to really keep my interest, but in the end I liked it very much. My only wish is that we could have explored a little more of the story leading up to the present day experience.

3 of 52: Island of the Blue Dolphins by Scott O'Dell.  My first time reading this book was many years ago, way back in the 5th grade. Though I had always up until that point been a reader, this is THE book that made me truly fall in love with the written word and where it could take you. It was interesting to revisit this work again after so many years.  I will probably go back to the Island of the Blue Dolphins a lot more in the future!
