There are still four purple squares to be added in the corners but, as that will take only minutes, this block is basically finished. I love the colours in this one. They remind me of pretty pastel dresses at Easter.
These books have been languishing on the bookshelves for ages. I remember starting the first book in Anthony Trollope’s Barsetshire novels ages ago and quite liking it but, for some reason, I put it down and didn’t go back to it. Truth be told, I probably got distracted by a mystery. This time I intend to read my way through both the Barsetshire and Palliser series. I love having a stack of unread books like this. This stack is the Barsetshire series. The Palliser series is another 6 books. These should keep me busy for a couple of months. Next up after Trollope? Maybe Dickens. I have read some of his books, but not all and would really like to make my way through those as well.
The weather is improving every day and I think by mid-week we’ll see temperatures back near 50, if not a bit better. Lester spent a fair amount of time on the windowsill on Monday. At one point I was watching him and saw a bird fly by with wings that seemed to be tipped with quite a vibrant blue. I didn’t see the bird again Monday but will be watching to see if we have some blue jays out on the roof garden. Still haven’t seen a robin, although I have heard one.
