End of April

I like to have a
book about science on my nightstand.

I like sustainable!
This is my favorite book right now.
I like it so much I want my husband to read it.
This book has encouraged me to find my terroir,
my place of taste.

I just begun reading this history of dance and find myself
becoming upset. I seldom think about how unjustly we treat each other. Woman have mistreated for hundreds of years.

Clarissa Pinkola Estes has filled my heart with the joy of becoming a wild and wise woman. I want all my friends to listen to her stories.
I have not begun this book.
It looks interesting.
I am a plant person.
I love finding ways of using the plants I grow.

I am studying wildflowers.

I am getting to know the wildflowers that grow
near my house on the Tallgrass Prairie.

Our picnic season begins right after Easter.

The Pleiades are associated with Taurus.
I try to learn a little something about my favorite constellation every year.
All sorts of cozies!
Learning about coffee and have a few cups.
April's books have been enjoyable.

April's books

My husband and I are both reading
about microbes.
They are very interesting.

I am almost finished with my study of France
for this year.

I read many books every week.

Most months I have several themes.

France and all things French is
one of April's themes.

The kitchen is the heart of the French home.

The country side is the soul
of France.

When I was 13 years old I read the biography
of Marie Curie
and fell in love with science.

She was a tiny giant.

I look for inspiration when I read.

I often take notes.

I have enjoyed my study
and arm chair travel this year.

I feel as if I know this culture
a little bit better.

I study the bee in April.

Sue Hubbell is such a wonderful writer.
She makes me wish I was a beekeeper.
Maybe one of these days I will be.
