It's been an interesting year so far. I've lost both my Moms. My mother died in January after a long decline. Soon after, my Mother-in-Law went in for bypass surgery. While her heart healed, other issues zapped her strength and she died April 22.

I may have challenge update posts but I don't know when I'll be posting regularly or when I'll get to visit everyone who is working on the challenges I'm hosting.

Friday 56

The Friday 56 is hosted by Storytime with Tonya and Friends

Rules:
* Grab the book nearest you. Right now.
* Turn to page 56.
* Find the fifth sentence.
* Post that sentence (plus one or two others if you like) along with these instructions on your blog or (if you do not have your own blog) in the comments section of this blog.
*Post a link along with your post back to Storytime with Tonya and Friends.
* Don't dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

A movement caught her eye, and as she turned to follow it she saw the cardinal take its perch on the snow-covered branch of a maple. I sat, a single spot of vivid red, and sang.


I finished this book this morning and it was sitting in front of my keyboard. Vision in White by Nora Roberts, book one in the Bride Quartet

What a great sentence. I do love cardinals in winter.

We have the snow - just not the cardinals

Here's mine

Great line. :)

Pretty passage, very vivid.

I love Nora Roberts - for some reason this reminded me of a song by Anne Murray - I think it was called Snowbird?
