A Work of Art, Whew! That's Done!, I Give Brownie Points

1. I finished the very last pages of The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt.I am emotionally divided in my response to this book. Since the story is about a work of art, I will compare the book to a work of art. One may not like the mood or the subject of a painting, yet still be captivated by it's beauty and genius. Donna Tartt is a genius with words and storytelling. How she writes with such detail about so many places and situations is beyond me.
2. Now that I finished reading the book, I can get on with painting my cabinet doors.
3. I opened an unexpected text from our daughter's boyfriend this evening. He was simply asking how the 'Mister' and other members of the household were faring. It was very sweet. The translation from French to English made it even more adorable.

  1. Oh golly - I'm still at the part in which he is waiting for his mother to come home after the explosion. I'm mostly reading it at lunchtime, but might have to step that up a bit if I'm to finish it by February 22.

    I guess that's your youngest's boyfriend? I haven't picked up on a French speaker before.
