quenched, raiment, and nail brush
posted by soe 4:33 pm

It’s a glorious spring Thursday in D.C. that began with cherry blossoms, had a farmers market lunch in the middle, and will conclude with our first baseball game of the season. If that’s not enough here are three other beautiful things from my past week:

1. A hibiscus-mint iced tea after biking without a water bottle on a 90-degree day.

2. New flip flops for the first day of sandal weather and a new cherry red dress for the first Nats game.

3. Scrubbing the dirt from my fingernails and hands after hours of working at the garden.

How about you? What’s been beautiful in your world this week?

what’s in a name reading challenge
posted by soe 1:25 am

I’m joining another reading challenge for 2013: What’s in a Name 6. I played along with this challenge a couple years back and think its requirements remain eclectic enough to amuse me.

Anyway, the point is that you choose six books based on criteria concerning their titles:

1. A book with up or down (or equivalent) in the title

2. A book with something you’d find in your kitchen in the title

3. A book with a party or celebration in the title

4. A book with fire (or equivalent) in the title

5. A book with an emotion in the title

6. A book with lost or found (or equivalent) in the title

With regards to the books I’ve read thus far this year, I’ve taken care of the emotional book with Wonder, but since I haven’t published any book reviews yet this year you’ll still have to wait to hear what I thought of it. (I also suppose Plum Lucky could fit in the kitchen item category, come to think of it…)

If you have suggestions for any of the other categories, feel free to leave them for me in the comments. Otherwise I’ll be scouring my TBR piles, the library shelves, and my Goodreads queue for likely contenders.
