Sunday Salon- Happy Easter, and I'm Taking a Break


It's been another busy week. Work has been crazy and the store had an Easter egg hunt yesterday. Oh my. I'm so glad for the holiday! Happy Easter and/or Passover. We made some coconut cupcakes with cream cheese frosting for Easter dinner dessert; despite my Lenten ban on baked goods I tried one to make sure they're good. They are!

I doubt I'll have much time for reading today but I've been juggling a bunch of books for the past few weeks. April is young yet but so far it's a much better reading month for me than March! I'm going to try to mix it up with more nonfiction as well, and more graphic novels. I keep buying them so sooner or later I need to read them, right? I might do another mini read-a-thon on some day off to get a little caught up and save up some more reviews.

But I won't be blogging them for a while. I've decided to put the blog on hiatus for the rest of April. In four and a half years of blogging this will be my first break. Lately I've felt like things have gotten kind of stale; comments are way down, which leads me to think I'm not doing a good job keeping you engaged. My writing feels dull, the writing itself has become routine in a bad way and I think I need some time off. I do have a couple of outstanding commitments and will continue to manage the Europa Challenge blog. I'll keep reading and commenting on your blogs. I'll be around on Twitter. I'll be back soon.
