Today marks the start of the fourth month of the year - and once again I find myself saying... where is the year going?!
This first day of April also brings with it a new challenge - the A-Z Blogging Challenge. Hosted by Sooz Says Stuff (among others), this isn't so much a reading challenging as a blogging challenge. All that's required is for me to blog every single day (well, almost every day - rest day is Sunday) throughout the month of April. By the end of the month, I'll have 26 blog entries. Easy as that!
But, there's a catch. Every new blog entry has to begin with the next letter of the alphabet, hence the A-Z blogging challenge over 26 days!
I've decided that there needs to be a theme to these blogs, so throughout April in the A-Z Blogging Challenge, I'm going to reveal a few of my favourite things.
A... is for Aunt
We currently have a house guest staying with us. She's my 84-year-old Great Aunt. After two hip replacements and a new lease of life, she winged her way across the Pacific Ocean to come and spend 10 days with us here on Vancouver Island, and we are having a ball! Castles, museums, galleries, coffee shops, movies and of course... bookshops!
My aunt has an amazing outlook on life. I've never known her to act her age - in numbers anyway - she's always been so much younger. Birthday cards are filled with glitter, presents are beautiful wrapped with sparkly stickers, and she has style! My 84th birthday is a long, long, way away, but when I make it there, I hope I'm just like her!
Oh, and did I mention she loves books?!
