Today? Already, such a day! And it’s way at the beginning… This could be one of those remarkable “turn around” days, where everything that was wonky is suddenly working in your favor. Or this could be one of those “I should have stayed in bed” days, where you obviously weren’t paying attention to all the signs pointing to “caution” and/or “Stop!” I’m hoping for the first option. Maybe I was distracting myself too much this morning? Odd words and phrases kept distracting me and so I shouldn’t have been surprised when I kept getting in my own way, right? One of my distracting phrases? “The chickens have come home to roost.” Isn’t that fun? Don’t you want to work it into a sentence now?  (Like I did?) Go ahead! make it your challenge for today! Or look up an idiom of your own… In our fabulous database Oxford Reference Online! I know. This could be the thing that makes a turn around day for sure! How about putting a cherry on top with a list of books newly added to The Reading Room?

Ghost in the Polka Dot Bikini by Sue Ann Jaffarian
Hold Me Closer, Necromancer by Lish McBride
Cloaked by Alex Flinn
Shine by Lauren Myracle
The Nazi Officer’s Wife by Edith Hahn Beer

So much to do! Look up fun idioms -or just words- and pick a new book to read! Enjoy!
