It's really summer here in the high plains desert! All last week the temperature reached 90 and above. This week looks like a repeat. That is hot for our part of the country! Thank goodness it cools off some at night. I am writing this post at 6:23 am local time and it is 61 degrees. We have central air but it is an old system and we hate the noise. So we turn off the compressor as soon as the sun goes down and it starts to cool.
I am keeping up with my goal of reading 24 books this year. I realize that is doable and a not a lofty goal. Most of you bookies read many many more. But I do what I can do.
I'm almost finished with:
One True Thing by Anna Quindlen. This book is amazing. I mean the story is wonderful, about the relationship between a daughter and her mother and father. But Ms Quindlen says things that most of us only think and would not likely utter out loud. A few pages back, a passage touched me deeply. It has been a long while since a book felt so personal and brought me to tears. Not sobbing, inconsolable tears, but the "OMG, how did she know this about me" kind.
Upcoming this weekend, is our state quilt guild convention. I will be there Friday, Saturday and some of Sunday. This year it is in our own town, so I will sleep in my own bed. But of course, meals will be shared, friendships renewed and hopefully new techniques will be learned. If I get One True Thing finished early on, next up is:
I know I will enjoy this one too, but in a totally different way.
That's what I'm reading, what are you reading this week? I'm linking up with Kathryn at Book Date. Come by and check what other book bloggers are into.
Until next time
Stay Busy and Stay Happy
