March madness has begun with the NCAA Basketball Tournament.
The last two years our family and extended family have logged our brackets online and
commiserated as members were devoured by upsets and nail-biting worthy games.
This year, I was leading the first day not dropping a single game!
I was flying high until Georgetown (my pick for champion) lost to Harvard.
I thought I was being cute picking an old school champ.
Apparently, cute doesn’t apply to basketball.
At this point, I have one team left in the final four and they were not my projected winner.
Now you understand our message board above!
Oh the madness!
My bracket will become confetti for someone else’s victory.
All is not lost as it is spring break.
Instead of being glued to the hoop scores, I may have my head in a book.
Take a peek:
A Secret Kept (audiobook)-Listening to this book has made my walks more exciting. The author also wrote Sarah’s Key. You may
have seen the movie which is a mixture of heartbreak and redemption. I think it would be a sad read, so I picked this
book instead. Bonus: it is set in France so I get to hear the correct French pronunciation versus my poor attempt if I were reading the book.
Bread and Wine-I was very excited to receive an advanced copy of Shauna Niequist’s long-awaited third book.
It’s part memoir,part cookbook. I am enjoying it greatly. I will be posting about it and perhaps sharing a recipe soon.
Wonderstruck: Awaken to the Nearness of God-Who doesn’t need more wonder?
The Weed That Strings The Hangman’s Bag-Time to immerse myself into the second Flavia de Luce mystery.
What are you reading on your couch or packing in your suitcase during spring break?
I would love to hear what you are reading!
