My Goldenbooks Legacy review is coming, soon, very soon (part one perhaps today) but until then I’ll just post my answers to this survey which I found on another blog. Feel free to copy it and link to your answers here!
On My Bedside Table:
The Diving Bell and the Butterfly by Jean-Dominique Bauby
The Machine in the Nursery by Jeffrey Baker
The Art of Subtext: Beyond Plot by Charles Baxter
(Then there’s what’s under my bedside table, the second string, so to speak, of anticipated reading. A big pile. Too big to list.)
Next Up from Netflix:
Spiderman 3 (Family Movie Night)
The Constant Gardener
The End of the Affair
history of neonatology/incubators
World War II
(last are for two writing projects)
On My Mind:
people I care about who are in recovery
the new semester
the welfare of our CFCA sponsored child in Kenya
to be a better blogger (hopefully)
Sarah Lugg-inspired collages on printer’s drawers painted shabby white–photos soon.
Looking Forward To:
going to Michael Feldman’s Whadya Know Tomorrow in LR
making bread this weekend
family movie night (High School Musical!)
reading the new ME Home Companionthat arrived yesterday
using my brand spanking new blue toile file folders with farm animals on them!
my second cup of coffee and NPR in the background
getting ready for my first class
answering this survey (I love surveys, don’t you?) which I found on the Bella Dia blog
my polar opposite children (One who mused jovially en route to school today, “hmm, wonder what we’ll do today” then cheerfully anticipated each subject, in chronological order; the other who had the usual Friday morning stomach ache and angled to stay home. Which one is most like me? They both are–I’ve always loved learning but I would have been just as happy to do it at home. I didn’t really enjoy school until college, which has a lot to do why I teach there.)
Don’t Forget: The Wordamour Birthday giveaway going on this month–all posts between January 4 and February 4th will be included in the raffle.
oh, Steph, you’re positively, wonderfully, endearingly nerdy with your toile file folders! I almost bought some paisely ones at the NY Public Library back in December, and I had you in mind when I saw them.
I think I’m going to do your survey on my blog.

I love reading about your interests and your children! My two sons are three years apart and are so opposite.
They don’t even look like they are brothers. Kids are wonderful…..Cindi
Guess what Tim–Monda gave me the file folders!
Great to hear from you, Cindi. Sounds like we have a lot in common.
