The fog is lifting and the sun is beginning to slide through the clouds on this the first day of Daylight Savings Time. I really don't like DST because it'll be dark when I leave for school in the morning. Plus, it makes this weekend an hour shorter. I know that doesn't seem like much but it does make a big difference. I even wrote a poem about it that you can read
here.

I'm still reading Takeover by Lisa Black and it's pretty good. I did have a little bit of a hard time getting into it because of how much I enjoyed my previous book, Midnight Rambler by James Swain and probably started this one too soon. But, now, it's growing on me.

I picked this little poetry book up last week when I went to the bookstore with my granddaughter, Kylie.





This is the one Kylie picked out. The bookstore we visited was the Village Bookstore in Littleton, NH and it has toys as well as books, with several toy displays so the kids can play with them. She was more interested in playing and I had a hard time getting her to leave. Couldn't blame her, though; it is a child's paradise!

Good afternoon, Linda! I'm with you about the time change. It really does make a difference. It throws off my internal clock and it takes a while to readjust. I wish they'd do away with the time change all together.

I am glad to hear you are enjoying Lisa Black's book. I think I'll be picking up a crime fiction novel later this week. I'm in the mood for one.

I hope you have a great week!

Linda, I'm not fond of the time change at all and would be quite happy if the time would just stay the same all year.

I've never read any of Lisa Black's novels. I'll be watching for your final thoughts.

Sounds like Kylie had a blast. Cute little book she picked out.
