Climate shock

On Thursday, I went from 72 degree weather in Venice to a winter wonderland in Minneapolis. I love my town, but there is something to be said for tubing downhill on a snowy night - over and over and over.
Having to haul on gloves, hat, scarf, coat, and boots every time I go outside means I've been spending lots of time inside eating and reading; I finished and reviewed Drizzle by Kathleen Van Cleve for School Library Journal, the description of which alone had my niece and nephew arguing about who got to read the ARC first, and now I'm reading the most excellent Incarceron by Catherine Fisher, due out in January.

Leftover Christmas cookies, family, snow, and a tall stack of books. Life is good.


  1. Gabe, the nephew, says he would like to have your job when he grows up: writing book reviews.

  2. Suprised you even got to MN with the weather the way it was. Have a great vacation.

  3. Wow, I wish it WAS my job!! 'Course, my "real" job is pretty darn nifty, too.
