Sharon Kay Penman Books

Because I am a dork and I want to be able to remember this:

1101-1154 - When Christ and His Saints Slept (Volume 1 of a trilogy)
1156-1171 - Time and Space (Volume 2 of a trilogy)
12th century - Devil's Brood (Volume 3 of a trilogy)
1192-1193 - The Queen's Man
1193 - Cruel as the Grave
1183-1232 - Here Be Dragons (Volume 1 of the Welsh Trilogy)
1231-1267 - Falls the Shadow (Volume 2 of the Welsh Trilogy)
1271-1283 - The Reckoning (Volume 3 of the Welsh Trilogy)
1459-1492 - The Sunne in Splendour

Yes, that is all of them, in chronological order. What a relief! : )

And for good measure:

My lovely Talen taking a moment to beautify with a Lavish clay and kelp mask ... complete with SD Pride-inspired Rainbow manicure!

In Response to Two Certain Someones

Taunting? Hey, I pay an outrageous amount to live here ... how about if I do some dollar-cost averaging by sharing?
Outdoor dining ... with excellent wine:

Appropriate attire: short sleeves (no sweat stains), shorts, and sandals for all! (Thank you, Random Family, for walking by right when I needed you!)

And the Burger Lounge ... a green restaurant serving grass-fed beef alongside quinoa burgers and Classic Coke (Mexico style - the BEST!) Sometimes I really love California!Also source of said Calypso-salsa-kind of confused music. And more outdoor dining space. Wish you guys could be here to savor it ... it really is delightful!

Farming: City Style

Today I mailed off our subscription form for our first Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) plan. I chose J R Organics Farm because they seem just right - not too big, not too small, and reasonably priced.I can't wait to see what we get in our boxes throughout the summer!!
