A Quiet House
This was the first week of my 'summer' vacation and I spent the week getting caught up on car maintenance and inspections. While sitting and waiting for each car, I read my books and got lost in a story just like I did when I was a teenager.
I finished reading 'Chilbury Ladies Choir' and it was entertaining. I didn't care for the diary/letter format of telling the story in first person by many characters. When I was talking to my son about it, I expressed how I was disappointed in the 'tidy' endings of everyone. All happily ever after - which is nice but for me it's not the reality of life.
Today I've only the gym and a quick run into the grocery store (fingers crossed it is as quick as I believe it will be). Once I am home, I'll be knitting and reading and officially starting summer vacation!
We plan to have a staycation weekend. I'm already thinking up some meals to eat to enjoy outside at the patio set. As the temperatures climb higher and higher, we will be swimming in the pool as well.
Dare I say that our house has been quiet more often than not? Have these two pets decided to give us poor pet owners a break?
Holly has been getting into my yarn baskets. A few days ago, I was on the phone chatting to my sister and Holly walked right by with a big ole skein of yarn in her mouth. Talk about stealthiness.
Instead of putting away the wools, I cover the baskets with a towel. Mischief managed and I believe I've outsmarted a cat once again. You and I both know that is not the case.
Our local library had a book sale and I found some treasures. I was excited to find some art books! Just the subject I'm interested learning more about. During the sale, I shop for myself but I am looking out for books for my kids and husband as well.
