Yes, the lazy blogger nearly missed the whole weekend without a post. I have no valid excuse unless Saturday down pours and winds or a perfect fall-like Sunday count. Yesterday the weather went from sticky, hot and humid to heavy rain and wind We went to an annual fall festival, one which we always enjoy --it includes a really nice book sale generally. I picked up about 10 new books, (2) were books I read previously as library copies, but loved so much that I got my own like-new copies now --Cutting for Stone and Little Bee. Have you read these? If not, you are missing on on (2) great novels IMO.
Today was a perfect low low 70's sunny Sunday. I took out the jeans and a few cardigans --just in case. It is suppose to be a beautiful week, and I only have to work (3) days so I'm pretty happy about that. I spent time reading on my deck (shaded until about 2 pm) and, I was actually cold -- haven't said that in a long time, so I only read outside for about an hour. I watched the movie Contagion for a second time....scary, but liked it a lot. I watched while ironing for a bit ....yep, I'm one of those who still irons and I actually like to iron while watching a movie.
I read - The Good Dream; Donna Van Liere - so different from my typical reads...think Nicholas Sparks, but the story was wonderful and just what I needed after a few too many depressing stories. It made my cry, and that rarely happens with me. I've been listening to The Chaperone, Laura Moriarty, but the narrator isn't the best and I have at least 6 more discs to go, so although I like the story I may switch to the print version for the rest and move on to a different audio book.
Oh, and after lots of take out this past week I actually cooked tonight. Salmon (with a brown sugar glaze), baked potato and veggies -- it was yummy. (We skipped the ice cream and opted for watermelon for dessert).
Have a great week everyone!
Don't you want a pair or these?
