April...of Fools, Felicitation, and Fiction

April…of fools, felicitation, and fiction

LET THE PRANKS begin! Happy April Fools' Day to you. Did someone fool you today? Spill it. Or, did YOU pull a prank on someone? Please share your stories in the comments section. I would love to read about them.

Of fools …

I’m not one for pranks. My face totally gives me away. But, one year I decided to play a trick on my beloved husband. I did the old “I’m pregnant!” trick. I know; I'm so unoriginal. I knew I had to text him, and I knew I had to do it when he’s swamped at work. Timing is key because if I allowed him to think things through, he ALWAYS figures me out. The texting went something like this:

ME: Hi sweetie. Guess what?
HUBBY: Hmmm?
ME: I’m late.
HUBBY: Huh?
ME: I’m. Late.
HUBBY: You. Are. Late. Been fooled already. Ha!
ME: (silent)
HUBBY: Besides babe, you need a better trick. ;)

He’s right. I do need a better trick, and executed earlier. One day husband, I will get you.

Of felicitation …

Last month the blog received it’s highest number of visitors with close to 10k views. Thank you so much you guys! While you can visit a plethora of other brilliant bloggers, you’ve shared your time with me. That makes me feel very special and filled with gratitude. THANK YOU! ❤ ❤ ❤

It hasn’t been all about posts and stats. As if life isn’t busy enough, I have a few special projects that you may be interested in joining.

Owls Be Reading
I’ve joined the fabulous Olivia @ Olivia’s Catastrophe to co-moderate Owls Be Reading—a book club on Goodreads. We’d love it if you would join us for engaging book discussions, group reads, and much more bookish happiness.

“Comment Twins” (We’re working on the name.)
The lovely Alicia @ A Kernel of Nonsense and I commented, engaged, stalked 😉 each other’s blog last February. It was so much fun getting to know her. She was a breath of fresh air after a long and draining day. Since then, I can't imagine not visiting her blog and seeing what kind of world-dominating, I mean blog, ideas she has planned. Do you love comments on your blog and are looking to connect with other bloggers? We will be launching something soon-ish to help increase your comments. We’ll keep you updated. If you’re interested, please leave a comment and we’ll make sure to connect with you.

Of fiction …

And lastly, in case you’ve missed my reviews since the last update, which was a couple of months ago, I’ve included it here for your convenience (all link to my reviews).
