Weekend Wonderings

by Stacey

Things I Loved This Week…

A Smart Quote: As I was struggling through the last few minutes of my spin class, the instructor said, “We are here, riding bikes on a Friday morning. We are damn lucky.” That pretty much says it.

A Fascinating Facebook Find: Click here to learn about the world-famous musician who played in a train station, incognito for 45 minutes. Only 6 people stopped to listen as the rest rushed through their day.

A Book (again): Bridge to Terabithia. This is one of the first books that made me cry. All these years later, it made me cry again.

A New-to-Me Blog: Making it Lovely

A Wintery Book List: No Time for Flashcards has a great collection of books about snowmen. I suppose if we are pretty snow-less winter, we can at least read about it.

A Perfectly Chosen Book Award: The Charlotte Zolotow Award was presented to Each Kindness by Jaqueline Woodson and illustrated by E.B. White. The book is superb. The illustrations are gorgeous. I was lucky enough to hear both the author and the illustrator speak at the Bank Street Bookfest this year. What a powerful team. It is no wonder they created an award-winning book.
