Welcome to the Sunday Salon.
A robin has been building a nest for weeks outside my window.
April winds shake the small tree, her bits of twigs and grass blow away.
Has she lost her ability to make a nest? It keeps falling, bits and pieces.
Perhaps she will triumph today, before the new winds blow.
On my spring reading list:
The Ghost of Lily Painter by Caitlin Davis, a haunted house thriller.

And for lighter reading, I have two library books: Sophie Kinsella's Twenties Girl and Remember Me?
Whew! Would you believe I'm also doing some writing of my own? What have you been up to and what are you reading?
