Today I join my fellow bloggers in "serving up a slice" to the Tuesday Slice of Life sponsored by Stacey and Ruth from Two Writing Teachers.
Listening: to Nancy Pearl On the Books That Keep Young Readers Interested (go to 13:40 of this broadcast to get Nancy's great recommendations)
Needing: to work on the paper piles (as soon as I finish this post)
Anticipating: daughter's four day visit and Summer Celebration
Hoping: for comments on our Sweet Summer Reads blog
Reading: assigned pages in Notice and Note for tomorrow's PLC
Longing: to begin The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern, our August book club selection
Striving: to follow Linda's advice (one of my Dumbledores) to read fast and write fast
Loving: this quote from Peter Pan, "Do you know," Peter asked, "why swallows build in the eaves of houses? It is to listen to the stories."
