This was fun. I didn't have time to get artsy1 with it, but since I'm a cum laude graduate of the School for Creative Procrastination, I made an entry for LibraryThing's March bookpile contest2.
I wrote a little blurb to go with it:
I find myself planning one million and one projects every spring.
I dream of getting into peak condition, staying on a diet, and cooking healthier. I can't wait to plant the garden, finish the spring cleaning, and get that chick order in. I'm determined to read educational blogs, brush up on my Shakespeare, and learn Italian. I want to key out every wildflower. Identify each bird, snake, and butterfly that flaps, slithers, or flitters by. Plus of course I plan to have plenty of spare time to lie in the hammock and relax with seasonal poetry, a garden memoir, an herbal mystery, and a flower confidential.
Hope SPRINGS eternal.
(Yes, it's corny! But I couldn't resist the need to explain to the imaginary critic over my shoulder why I had Conversational Italian and so forth in a pile of spring books.)
I didn't actually get a chick order in though. We decided that since we actually are on a diet3 and not eating many eggs, that we probably didn't need 25 more chickens (the minimum order). I thought we might just pick up a few chicks4 at the co-op, but they didn't get any this year.
Part of the fun was putting in books that you might recognize. Like Susan's or Amy's or a few others that May have been mentioned here before.
1I believe the technical term is artsy fartsy.
2You can too, but hurry because the deadline is tomorrow noon.
3I've lost 15 pounds. Woohoo! Only (mumble, mumble) left to go.
Edited to add:
Woohoo! I won 3rd runner up! Thanks Susan for pointing me to LT.
