1. Hello, my name is Sarah, and I am addicted to Ruzzle. Have you played this game? It's Boggle on steroids, and so.much.fun. I've been on the Words With Friends bandwagon, but the truth is...that game takes too much strategizing. I find strategizing boring. I like fast, fast, fast, and Ruzzle is it. Each game consists of three rounds, and you and the person you are playing (friend, stranger, whatever) see the same three boards even if you play at different times. You make words by swiping over the letters with a finger. But wait! There's more! Some of the letters are marked double letter, triple letter, double word, or triple word. My highest word score so far was 200-something (braggart). So, download Ruzzle (for free) today! And then play me; I need more Ruzzle partners to play with while my children scrounge for crumbs in the kitchen.
2. This weather. Grace, I share a little of your concern about the seasons changing a bit too quickly. How can we truly appreciate cool weather in the fall if we haven't gotten good and hot in the summer? But then I remember how much I hate to sweat. And how much more pleasant it is to take the kids to the park when you don't have to sweat.

5. Breck's. Do you get as many emails from them as I do? Clearly, they mean business now that it's approaching spring bulb planting time. I passed up their orange tulip giveaway and now I'm passing up their pink iris giveaway, but sometime before September 6 (when a big sale ends) I'm going to take advantage of one of their giveaways and purchase some spring bulbs at a great price. Because there is nothing like crocuses and daffodils to cheer you up in February and March when everything is gray, cold, wet, and gloomy.
