Reading: Same books, nothing new to say there. I am also "reading" a few websites: The Renegade Gardner has good info about gardens in northern climes and he has some fun ideas about gardening in general. Take some time to browse. He has opinions to spare.
Bailey's Nursery has a very comprehensive plant list that you can search by common name, Latin name, hardiness, soil type and lighting needs. They also have pictures for a lot of the plants.
Almost everyday I check out the conversations going on at the St. Paul Pioneer Press Bulletin Board. My comments have been published a couple of times, under the name "Don't Call Me Sallie! in Maple Grove".
WebMD is a good general site that I use for work a lot (especially to figure out why people are taking certain medications. It doesn't make you spell the names right, which is great for those weird drug names that are nearly always misspelled) but also if I just want more info on medical issues.
Dean Haagenson's website is fun if you like looking for houses. He is our realtor and my husband's cousin. It is fun to search and look at the houses. Once there was a townhouse for sale that was painted all pink inside. The dining area was hot pink (think Pepto-Bismol) and the living room was pink with black accents (think Barbie dreamhouse). The pink inside matched the crabapple tree in bloom outside. Lovely.
My friend Steph has a blog too. She is a librarian and reads a lot of interesting books. I notice that she recently read Lemony Snicket's book, around the same time I read it. Great minds read alike.
If you want to virtually try clothes on, check out My Virtual Model.com. You can create a 3-D model of yourself and then shop at stores such as Land's End and LLBean. Beware, though. When you create your model, she (or, of course, he) shows up in her (or, of course, his) skivvies. If you are trying this at work, it is difficult to get her covered up quickly enough. It is even more embarrassing because she will look very much like you.
