Thursday Stuff...

Finishing this...the heart of this story is the disappearance of Linsey days before she is leaving for her first year of college. What makes this book so interesting is learning about the lives of people who live in her neighborhood. It's a fascinating puzzle that is written beautifully.



More interesting books that came my way...I have not read Clockwork Prince yet and I really want to!


What happens when a young boy finds a baby griffin hiding under his bed? I love books like this.


Hmmm...an intense psychological mystery...



Dinner! Buttermilk soaked Panko roasted chicken...and Creamy Au Gratin potatoes...I soaked the chicken in buttermilk and then just rolled it in seasoned Panko crumbs...the chicken was so moist and yet crunchy on the outside! I made this last week and am making it again today. Yum!



Easy...and the perfect comforty food on a cold snowy spring day.


There is a lovely blizzard outside...sort of on and off and it is really cold!

My new baby...yesterday in the sunroom...my other baby was not far away but still not ready to join her. I truly think Roxie leaves a space for Lucy wherever she is...it is so sweet.






What I really think is that Lucy is beginning to relax with her...Lucy seems less stressed, she doesn't scream any more, she looks for Roxie and knows her name...she loves tapping Roxie and playing chase...but is still a bit apprehensive around her...but I see her let down her barriers more and more each day! Last night they were both in bed with us...just looking at each other...it was late...I was watching TV...Roxie was near my head...Lucy was lying next to me...and they were both just staring at each other...no hisses...no taps...just looking at each other...it was actually sweet and I was afraid to move!

Off to read and watch Rachel Zoe...she is so annoying and yet I am hopelessly addicted...

Happy Thursday!

  3. It's understandable that Roxie would be more open to a relationship...she has not been usurped. And the admiration she apparently has for Lucy should help win Lucy over....

    You have the best dinners ever!

  4. The dinner- yum!

    I think the books all look fascinating. I am especially curious about When she was Gone!

    So happy Lucy and Roxie are making such progress. :) Yeah!
