SOLSC #10: Lucky found me this morning!

Today I join my fellow bloggers in
"serving up a slice" to the March SOLSC
sponsored by Two Writing Teachers.
I am in love with words.  I am easily distracted.  I am frustrated that I cannot respond to more of you this year.  March is frenetic. March is my book club retreat.  March is end of 2nd trimester. Today I sit down with no slice ready to go.  Today I'm behind before I begin.  Today I don't have time to slice later.  Your slices entice me.  Your slices call to me.  Your slices inspire me.  This morning I promise myself to finish slicing and meandering by 5:30.  This morning I cannot wander overlong among the slices.  This morning I must head to school early to read the sub notes and prepare for the day.  Stopping at Melanie Meehan's post, "all reading is valid", I indulge my wandering gene.  Stopping to read more because Tara recommended it, I wonder if Brooklyn Bridge is a new title for Karen Hesse.  Stopping to click on Amazon because I want to know more about this title, I start skimming the first chapter.  Lucky leaps off the page and weaves its way through the beginning pages.  Lucky describes my excitement because I found a new way to keep Newbery Love alive for one more month.  Lucky to have more ideas than days to slice, I can't wait to share what we discovered on the beach when we slowed our pace to watch.
(I''ve wandered overlong and broken my promise to myself - this took 47 minutes.  See you tomorrow!)


  1. I too can get caught up clicking on amazon and reading parts of books. :-) I enjoyed reading your slice - It is such a busy month!

  2. Hope the day holds a "few" quiet moments too, Ramona. Busy Monday!

  3. Ditto for thoughts on the busyness of March - you'd like Brooklyn Bridge, Ramona - it's a wonderful read.

  4. Isn't it amazing how much time passes when you are wandering through posts and your 47 minutes. I will head over to Amazon and check out the book.

  5. "Your slices entice me." Isn't that the truth! So much wonderful writing is being shared this month. Hope you found a minute to relax during your whirlwind day!
