Thursday Things

September 27, 2012 @ 9:10 am | Filed under: Author stuff, Books, Gardening

First up: Into the Thicklebit | Overheard.

Next thing: We’re talking books in the comments of this postKristin Lavransdatter and Papa’s Wife. Got other Scandinavian favorites?

Next thing, for San Diego locals: My signing’s on Saturday! Yellow Book Road @ beautiful Liberty Station in Point Loma, 3pm. Come! Say hi! Eat cookies! Listen to me attempt a Scottish accent! (Serves me right for writing characters in dialect.)

Book reviews & interviews.

Other shareworthy links in my sidebar.


We have an excursion to City Farmers Nursery planned for this afternoon. Rilla is planting her own butterfly garden. (The one that spans the width of our backyard isn’t enough for her, evidently.) 😉 She’s making a list. Excuse me, I mean a LEIST. So far, she’s got:


2. HOT PENK DRANEYOM (hot pink geranium)

I can’t wait to see what’s next. 🙂

  2. sounds like the best butterfly garden in the WORLD!
    just needs some sewt pees!

  3. Oh, how I love sewt alisom.
    I shall think of her this weekend as I pop into Morningstar Farms and get my own herbs. We have so many other unpacking things to do, which is why it’s the perfect time to hare off and gather herbs. 🙂

  4. I was lucky to have spent a year studying classic Scandinavian literature at uni – a year not being nearly long enough. Hans Christian Andersen will always be my favourite though. There are some wonderful modern books coming from the region too. I wonder how much the landscape influences the imagination of writers there.

    Good luck with the signing!

    (And how lovely that you have a new gardener in the family.)
