Spring Break Winding Down

We are just wrapping up the end of a two week spring break out here in California. I started this week with a short stack of mysteries to read.
 The weather has waffled between perfect, gorgeous tour-bus like sunshine and gloomy showers. Yes, we really have these Starline tour buses in our neighborhood now!! What is that?? Thought they were only in Hollywood and Beverly Hills!!
This shower caused a delay of game for the second day of baseball season.
 But, that rainy interlude was perfect for kicking back in front of the fire and finishing off those books I had planned to read.

I finished Night, Night, Sleep Tight by Hallie Ephron last night. Set in the 1980s and 1960s in the Beverly Hills/Hollywood area, this is a suspenseful thriller that kept me guessing right up to the final pages. The kernel of the story was a real-life "Hollywood" crime story that took place in the late 50s, which I well remember. The book is packed with references to local haunts (many of which are still here) and that took me right back high-school days and memories I had long forgotten. What a treat!!
Finishing up Night, Night, Sleep Tight.
So, it's back to teaching on Monday, and as I close this last book my thoughts are turning towards lesson planning. See you next week with a fun new project:))


  1. I'll have to check out Night, Night Sleep Tight. Sounds like a good read. Enjoy the rest of your break!

    1. Thanks, Mary. The author of Night, Night Sleep Tight is coming to our area this coming week. I plan to go to her event at our local library and hear the inside scoop!!

  2. I haven't read that either. Love your socks; I have a pair of fingerless mittens my husband got me, perfect for photography, that I think are the same company. I love that they don't exactly match.

    Meanwhile, your weather.... We had some snow and sleet a day ago! Today just rain, seemed like a step in the right direction!

    1. Thanks, Phyl. I LOVE that the socks don't match, too. I forget the name of the company, but I know I have it bookmarked somewhere. I bought my socks in a store, but they have a cool website, too.
