I've spent my Saturday binge watching CSpan Book TV. I'm sure that makes me some extra special kind of nerd but I really enjoy it. For those of you (all of you) who have never watched Book TV it's a continuous feed of book fairs and festivals with interviews of authors and usually a good preview of the content of the book. It's like Cliff Notes TV. The only thing I like better than Book TV is CSpan3, History TV which shows all kind of history lectures and tours. Our current satellite package doesn't include CSpan3 so I spend my weekends watching Book TV. When I'm not watching PBS. Or sports - I'm currently watching the NCAA Men's Basketball Semi-Final and the Gators are losing.
Anyways... today they have featured some great books and I thought I'd share a few of them with you so that you can benefit from my hours and hours of viewing (while playing Farmville2).
In other news... Purple Michael married his long time partner, Ross today. They just had a private, quiet thing and will have a reception later this year. I've never loved anyone like I love my Michael - it's not romantic and it's not maternal - he's just a person that my heart knew, very early on, that I was meant to love and learn from him for as long as our paths intertwined. There's this huge sense of peace in my heart that he has the love he always dreamed of. I can't even think about it in political terms or religious terms - I just know that somebody I love is loved and that makes me happy.
I ordered my "Summer wardrobe" from zulily today - two dresses, two skirts and a top. Very excited!
Also, we got floodlights for our VERY DARK backyard and it's so bright back there now that you could land a plane and/or do surgery. You can see all the way to the dock! You can also make really huge shadows. Of course we will only use those lights when we're actually outside after dark.
That was my Saturday. Hope yours was lovely as well. Love and hugs.
