Friday Fancies

The daylight savings time change is hitting me especially hard this year. I have a hard enough time waking up in the morning--specifically, on early weekday mornings, when I stumble out of bed and grumpily vow to climb back in for a nap as soon as I get home that day, which of course I never actually do--and I need every bit of morning sunlight I can get, so it was hard to go back to darkness when my alarm went off on Monday. Needless to say, I'm hoping to bank a little extra sleep this weekend.

On a completely unrelated note, apparently Google is going to be doing away with Reader!?! Anyone have any suggestions for good blog-reading tools to use instead?

(A bunch of daffodils brought a bit of spring inside, brightening up cold and dark mornings)

A few things to check out:

Book Sale Finder is a site that helps you find books sales near you. I have a feeling I'll be checking this often.

Gorgeous long exposure photos of ballet dancers.

A festive movie to live in for St. Patrick's Day (even if it's not the best romantic comedy ever made).

I loved Marisha Pessl's first novel, so I'm excited to see that her second, Night Film, is finally on the horizon.

And over the years, I've read various blog posts in which a blogger wonders how long they'll continue blogging. This 96-year-old blogger proves that the answer to that question is, as long as you want to!


  1. I've started moving over to and I quite like the design of it though it takes some getting used to and start up organization.

  2. I was just thinking that I want to watch "circle of friends" in honor of St Pattys Day. And I'm planning on doing some research on good RSS feeds.... will share recommendations!

  3. So glad I read your blog post on St. Patrick's day and was reminded of "Leap Year." A perfect movie for today. I loved looking at all those images from the film.
