Top ONE Tuesday - I know I ruined the alliteration

It's Tuesday again... Time for TTT!!
All they ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND post a comment on our post with a link to your Top Ten Tuesday post to share with us and all those who are participating.
But for me this week I must make it Top One 

I wasn't going to post this week... that is until I saw the topic:

Top Ten Characters (and Literary Figures) That I'd Name My Children After


Well I DID name one of my girls after a literary character...

Meet Catherine.

May she have better luck in love than Catherine Earnshaw from Wuthering Heights but with with just as much strength.

She hasn't read the book yet. But she made fun of the movie!!

I can't wait to see all your lists!

Alternative to the Super Bowl

So.... I quit watching football a long time ago. (about the time I became single...imagine that). And I don't have TV anyway. So I found an alternative to all the Super Bowl hype and football watching.....




Starting with Mr. Darcy in Pride and Prejudice and seeing how far we get :)


I'll get back to books here pretty soon! I still have that review to write on The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks. I'm procrastinating it because....(whisper mode on) I wasn't a fan (whisper off).

Blizzard 2011

Here's what I woke up too....and the snowblower wouldn't start.



My sidewalk is under there somewhere. 



Got some dug out!

Lot to knock off the car still

Letting stuff dry out and warm up for a bit then back at it

In the meantime...last night I finished The Immortal Life of Herietta Lacks. And I will be posting a review soon.!!

Back at it.... and this is how you kick it!!
