"where's your test?" Amusement touched Valek's face. He rose from behind his desk. Sweeping his arm with a dramatic flourish, he indicated two rows of food an a table. "Only one item isn't poisoned, find it then eat it."

Q: Activity! Hopefully warm weather for most of us is here soon…so tell us about your favorite outdoor reading spot. Or take a picture.


I don't want to take a picture, because its surrounded in 3 feet of snow and later today it will turn into 4.5 feet (if the weather man is right). Anyway, My favorite spot is in my front yard under a tree that splits into two trees, sharing about one foot of the same trunk starting from the ground.

I like laying a blanket on the ground on sunny days and listening to the birds while reading a wonderful book..........how long 'till summer?

  5. That is a lot of snow! When I lived up in the northeast, 2 feet was considered heavy snowfall. I sometimes miss seeing it, but I definitely wouldn't want to shovel that much.

  9. Eeeek a lot of snow for you guys too eh?! It's calling for more for us later this week/early next week so I can sympathize! Snow makes for a good excuse to stay in snuggled in a blanket with a nice book ;) Anyways the spot you described sounds PERFECT for reading outside in the Summer. Under a tree + birdsong sounds heavenly ♥

  15. I hate snow. I can't imagine it being this late in March and still dealing with snow. It's why I moved south. We are completely opposite, in that I would never lie on a blanket on the ground. Just your description made me itch, too many bugs. Thanks for visiting my FF.
