Last night I finished

...The Good Bacteria and today I started Stumbling in the Bloom. When I finish it I'll have read all the poetry books on the GG shortlist. This is the first year I've made a point of reading all the titles prior to the awards. I did this mainly because until now I was not familiar with the work of four of the five poets. Of course I'll pick a winner, just for fun, but I'll keep that between me and the cat.

And, just for fun, I've been checking out archaeological digs. I've always wanted to work at a dig. I blame Indiana Jones. Anyhow, I took a close look at the Wadi ath-Thamad project. It really appeals to me.

Speaking of fun, I hope to see some of you at the welcoming reception for Robert Currie, Saskatchewan's new Poet Laureate, at Government House on Thursday. I hope the weather cooperates.

I still have to finish the last book. I didn't take it along with me to Regina.
