Right now, I am in the middle of reading two books. One is Through Angel's Eyes, which is about the Civil Rights movement in 1960s Birmingham, and the other is a novel about the Borgias. In spite of my best efforts, I found I needed a break in between Augusta Evans Wilson novels! I am reading her stuff out of order, too, because I need to shake things up a bit. I will be reading Infelice soon.
I am dragging a bit today because I was up late watching the double episodes of Dallas. It is great to start a new season, and Larry Hagman is just brilliant. I know I will cry when he dies on the show! I just love him. No one could ever play JR, and I am glad that the writers decided that making his death real on the show was the way to go. I do love the character of John Ross Ewing, JR's son! Wow! He has potential to sort of fill in the enormous gap left by JR. He is excellent!
As many of you know, I am a big Dallas fan! I used to watch the show when I was a little girl (when the original was airing on television), but I didn't remember much about it. When I moved to Tampa years ago, my mom sent me the DVDs of Dallas for my birthday (the first three seasons). I was totally addicted!! I have enjoyed the new show so much, because the writers/directors/producers have made so many good decisions about its revival. Linda Gray is just amazing, and, though I am not a fan of "Bobby Ewing," I still enjoy seeing Patrick Duffy onscreen. So, anyway, I am VERY happy with the show!
In other news, I have been doing a lot of researching and writing (mostly for my Augusta Evans Wilson projects). Also in totally random news: I am becoming a bit obsessed with beekeeping. Yes. I know. Totally out of the blue! I am considering going to a beginning beekeeping course sometime over the next year. There are lots of beekeeping associations around here, and the local honey is sooooo delicious! I am a huge fan of honey. Anyway, I don't want to become a beekeeper (just too much time that I don't have), but I would like to learn about bees and local honey...and, basically, just how that all works out.
So, that is my update for today! Hang in there with me. I will have a new review soon...but production has started up at the magazine again, so you know that means that my life is a bit hectic at the moment!
