WG and a Weekend Update

I am doing Weekly Geeks Option A and write about what books i read as a child.

A bunch! I loved The Secret Garden and Little Women. I really liked the Encyclopedia Brown books and the Fudge books and the Scary Stories series and the Great Brain series. Harriet the Spy and From the Mixed-up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler and Johnny Tremain and T
he Westing Game and Stuart Little and Sarah, Plain and Tall and Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of Nimh and The Hobbit and The Witch of Blackbird Pond i read and reread and reread. The Call of the Wild and 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and Treasure Island and Around the World in 80 Days and The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood and Heidi got me reading classics. Bunnicula! How to Eat Fried Worms! Redwall! The Waterbabies! The best part is i'd pick up any of these books today and read them again!

This weekend UNC gave me a glorious gift. By winning and advancing to the championship game I won my bracket! I've never ever ever won! *blows kisses* thanks! Good Luck tonight!

Also, i had a date. I went on a hike with O around Lookout Mountain. We ended up walking about 7 miles (whew) and being a bit exhausted.


a bit of waterfall and rock path.


straight up!

a bamboo forest. pretty cool. I learned a what bunch of wildflowers look like. Columbine and violets and Virginia bluebells and trillium and Johnny-in-the-pulpit and blue phlox. Hopefully i'll remember these next time i see them. I think i'll look around for some flower hikes around Nashville.

Currently: feeling pretty good

  1. I don't know how many times I read The Secret Garden, or The Hobbit _ they were two of my favourites _ still are, come to think of it.

  2. Hey, congrats on winning your bracket! Very cool! Mine was blown all to hell several rounds back, but it was still fun playing.

  3. Ooh, that bamboo forest looks like it would be a good place to curl up with a book. Maybe The Secret Garden?

  4. the bamboo forest wasn't exactly the best spot to read...was rather dark and tight, so not a lot of spots to sit. it was cool though!
