Good morning and Happy Mother’s Day!
It is a lovely day here today in Central Minnesota. I have a few commitments this morning, think hubby and I are joining some friends later for a motorcycle ride, and later yet… a road trip to hopefully pick up the chair I posted earlier this week as my hopeful Mothers Day gift (*fingers crossed!)
I did have some books enter the house this past week:
Some great reading here! AND on top are a couple of audio and I have already dug into Come Home.
Then this past Friday I went to garage sales which I have not done in probably over a year – mainly because I used to always look for books and I have no need of doing that anymore between the review books, books i purchase, and Library sales… HOWEVER, I have a friend who RAVES (” a brand new crock pot, still in the box $5! One of those buffet things I have always wanted! A set of dishes that int he store would go for hundreds of dollars, I got it for $15!) about her finds and so…. I caved… and then this happened:
This is why I can’t go to garage sales. It was a large church sale. I was minding my own business, wandering through nick nacks, shoes, blankets…. alas over to the books just to see if they had any treasures….
I love Claire Cook, had to grad that one. I read Pamela Morsi a long time ago and found her hilarious, better grab that one, I have The Help in hard cover, but what if I want one to loan out so grabbed that one, I have a copy of Mrs. Kimble, but I think it will be good when I review it so I can do a giveaway now too, Small Island – new to me, Thirteenth tale I have in hard cover, and Bel Canto I have always wanted to read – I already have, but again… what if it would make a good giveaway.
See my problem? 😯
This week should be a nice one for me, not too heavily overloaded. Now that the weather is getting nice I am getting selfish about evening meetings and commitments, I want to garden, I want to ride bike, I want to read on the deck in the new (ahem) chair, I want to be outside!!! 😀 Next weekend I will get to go to the cabin with College son. I can not wait!
