(Lilacs! Can I wax poetic for a moment about how the New Very Old House keeps offering us delighful surprises? First there were daffodils poking their little heads out from the snow. Then, I discovered that two of the trees lining the brick walkway to the back door are redbuds. After that, I noticed that the giant bush next to the kitchen window is a lilac--and I mean ginormous. It's the size of an elephant, honestly. Finally, peonies are sprouting up from between the remnants of the daffodils. It's going to be a very floral spring at the New Very Old House.)
A strange development--I have never before been one to listen to music while writing, but this project is demanding it. So, I have discovered the wonders of Pandora. I am so in love with my Thomas Tallis station, I can't even describe it. My Vivaldi station is pretty fab too, as is the Irish traditional station (with heavy doses of Chulrua and Stan Rogers--if you like Irish music, go listen to Chulrua like right now). How did I make it this long without becoming a Pandora addict?
Finally, I want to offer a sincere apology for not keeping up with all of your delightful blogs as frequently as I have in the past. It's a crazy-busy time of year, and I hope to be back to reading much, much more soon. Accept my abject and humble apologies.
What's shaking with you all? Any brilliant new discoveries of the interwebs or your backyards?
