holed up

Marnie and Denver are away for the weekend...BLISS!!!  I've got some home alone time (do you maybe get the impression I'm a bit anti-social/anti-people?!?)

I've been reading cowboy books.  A first for me.  Just finished these two by Leif EngerHighly recommended!  Unfortunately he's only written two books.  But I've got one by his brother Lin Enger on the way... 

And this morning at the library I picked up some more episodes of Northern Exposure (love it!!) and this CD by Sarah Blasko.  I'd never heard of her, but the more I listen...the more I like...

And I'm now reading this book by Per Petterson ...

And if I feel energetic (which is unlikely) I might make this recipe for Lemon Poppy Seed Cake from THIS library book...
Aren't libraries wonderful places!!  Cheaper than bookshops...although I could spend all day in both.
Will try and get you some photos next week of our little town library.
Adios Amigos!!


  1. I am a library loving introvert, too. I've never read anything by Leif Enger--I'll have to take a look at those books.

    1. Hi Susan - his books are really good! They have a God element too :) xx

  2. Hi Mum, when you come to visit us we can go to stay with real cowboys....and wouldn't say no to some of that cake...yum, reminds me of our trip when you were ar Stanley. Can you email me the recipe...maybe I'll practice it before you visit. Natasha

    1. Hi Natasha - I haven't actually made the cake yet. Maybe this weekend! Will get the recipe to you. xx
