Me love March.
If you wonder why it is I am talking like a cave woman, well, I will just have to keep you in suspense for about 200 words. I do love March however. Let me tell you why:
1. It is my birth month and I am very narcissistic.
2. It is the month of my wedding anniversary. What was I thinking having the two so close?
3. It is the beginning of spring.
4. and therefore my incredibly brief period of feeling motivated and productive
What does that mean?
It means, opening the windows, cleaning house, and returning dead plants to Home Depot.
For me, this time of year always calls for the marvelling of all things beautiful. The gentle sounds of the birds filtering in through our open windows, the birds' nests resting in the bare limbs of our trees, the birds' poop ornamenting our outdoor furniture. Ahhhh.....
But what is so beautiful to me right now is the air of generosity that seems to be floating through the atmosphere as of late. Whether it is due to the fact that people are beginning to come out of hibernation mode or the fact that they are counting down the days until they too can dress up as Katniss and attend the first showing of The Hunger Games...people are being nice.
Well, in case you haven't heard, published authors apparently are people too. They slip on banana peels just like you and me! It's true! These next two months are booked with some amazingly generous children's authors. I just can't believe it. Some of the authors who will be contributing to the Banana Peel Thursday series are:
Marsha Diane Arnold
Stephen McCranie (Woo hoo! Some testosterone in the house!)
Liz Garton Scanlon
George Shannon (Woo hoo! More testosterone!)
And this week, just in time for the release of her new book, ME WANT PET!, Tammi Sauer!
That's right! Author of Chicken Dance, Mostly Monsterly and other hugely popular, delightful books for children, Tammi Sauer will be here on Thursday to tell you about a couple of slips she has made as a published author.
Please check out some other wonderful sites she will be visiting on her ME WANT PET! blog tour this week:
