Here and There

Sweet Peas in raised beds, champagne and balmy temperatures. Is this heaven?

We went to Bernardus Lodge and Winery for a wedding this past weekend. It was so beautiful and romantic! Wonderful food and good cake (not just good wedding cake, but good cake!) tasty wines, yummy champagne. Dancing and chocolate. It was just delightful.
Now, we are home. There is a lot of work to do before we go away again on Saturday, but I made a stop to the library to get some reading for the long weekend. The Tent by Margaret Atwood, Women of the Silk by Gail Tsukiyama, and A Thousand Acres by Jane Smiley...which one first?

A Thousand Acres, all the way! (may want to re-acquaint yourself w/King Lear first!)

A Thousand Acres is such a clone of King Lear, even down to the letters Smiley chose for her character's names. I'd say she did a better job of making Larry a more accessable bastard, but overall I enjoyed King Lear more.
