weekend wishes

What are you up to this weekend? We've got some hockey on the agenda, and an ice skating party to look forward to. Otherwise, we're planning to be cozy at home and wait for the snow to start falling.

I've finished book #1 of the 52 I plan to read this year - Breakfast at Tiffany's. My book club chose it as our January selection. Truman Capote is a master storyteller; I found it to be perfect in every way (and quite a bit different from the movie).

In case you missed them the first time around, a couple of posts from my archives:

Easy Sticky Buns
Cal the Super Hero

Well, whatever you do, I hope your weekend is wonderful. xoxo

Friday gave us 6" of snow. I love it. It blankets the Earth with a quiet peacefulness.

Enjoy your weekend!

Good selection. I read it back in 2004 when the New York Times released it as a serial.

Fresh flowers and plants, I can't wait for that time of year! My hydrangea is looking pretty sad at the moment. Happy weekend, I'm taking boy #2 to a tennis tournament today!

Hi Lecia, and happy new year to you! We're enjoying our weekend home together, hockey yesterday, showers and homework and getting ready for another week today.

I am catching up on the two weekend editions of the Globe and Mail - and have pulled out the crosswords.

It is a gorgeous morning and it makes some of the struggles we have been experiencing less overwhelming

Lucky you. I can't affort to read so many books in a year, yet. I have two boys (3 and 6) and a job and unfortunatelly can't find the time to read now. I can do that during the holidays and I must say that I can hardly wait for the boys to be a bit older that "will allow" me to read. Actually I read the books: just they are the books for children.
Good luck with your books (I almost anvy you).

I love everything Capote wrote and you're so right about the perfection of Breakfast at Tiffany's. Here the ice is still melting and we've psent a relaxing time cooking and watching films. Hope you had a wonderful weekend.

I read that book years ago, and don't particularly remember enjoying it all that much. Hmm...I'll have to dig out my copy and flip through it again.
