70's and sun……yippee

Did you read that?  70's and sun predicted for today.  Yeah!!!  I have so many plans!  First though, I want to clean my house and do my many errands for today.  By the time I'm done, I should be able to open the windows and let the fresh air in this house.  Yeah!!!  Then, I will sit and read and pretend that summer has arrived.  (Probably in my jeans and long sleeved t-shirt.  My body is not ready for summer yet.  lol)

If you can believe, I actually sewed this week.  Yes, Lady #78 and #79 are on their way home so soon I will be able to show you my lovely new additions to the series.  In the meantime, here are the envelopes I sent out his week to my sweet girls:

As usual, I read this week too and surprisingly enough got 3 finished even though I sewed for most of the week.  (Probably because I'm on a diet and am getting foot/leg cramps which get me up at least 4 times every night and every time, I read a chapter or two.  lol)  Ugh for the pain, but yeah for the reading.  lol

MIST OF MIDNIGHT                                 by                  Sandra Byrd
A SPOOL OF BLUE THREAD                    by                  Anne Tyler
VANISHED                                               by                  Joseph Finder

The first one was an English gothic romance (totally unlike stuff I usually read), but I really enjoyed it and would highly recommend it.  The 2nd has a lot of hype, but UGH!  I felt as though I was reading about anyones dysfunctional family and who needs that?  We all have our own in some way or another.  Right??  Then, the last, VANISHED, was good and went really fast.  Joseph Finder writes thrillers, but what I really like are his real short chapters so it seems like you're reading faster than you really are.  All of these were taken out of my local library (can you believe?)  I think it's been weeks since I've bought a book.  Amazon is going to think I died!

So, friends, you have a good week and enjoy your weather too.  I'm sure it must be nice where you live too!  Until next week……...

The sun has come out in the PNW too this week. Going for a walk yesterday wore me out. Is there such a thing as too much Fresh Air? I am reading "Red Berries, White Clouds and Blue Sky by Sandra Dallas in the evening while I rest up. YEA for more ladies!!! I am sewing a little each day, because I can. Cheap Therapy.
