Hello Blogland!! Hope everyone is having a wonderful start to their week!
I am thoroughly enjoying my gifted Kindle!! As an avowed bookworm–this SO much easier to manage. I am a voracious reader and visit the library every third week for a new pile of books. That doesn’t include all of the reading matter I have at home-like my cookbook collection (400+ and 99% thrifted) I actually read cookbooks like regular books!
I have downloaded several free books to read. Grace Livingston Hill is a favorite author. She wrote “romance” novels around 1900-1940. I was blessed to enjoy reading these about 30+ years ago by an aunt who had quite a collection(which her daughter I believe threw AWAY after she died!) They are out of print and libraries no longer carry them. And they are mondo EXPENSIVE in antique stores. I was so excited to find about a dozen titles FREE for the Kindle!!
I am going to endeavor to read or re-read many of the classics I read in high school and college. Plus I’m hoping to re-read some classics from my childhood like “Mrs.Wiggs of the Cabbage Patch” and the Trixie Belden series. This will keep me busy for a bit!!
It’s still hot, humid and utterly miserable here in Maryland. We were forecast for storms from Friday onward which have gone around us. We maybe got 10 drops of rain so I’ve had to water the veggies. UGH.
Here’s Monday’s ensemble. I’m doing some pattern mixing with the gingham crops and floral sweater.
Tuesday’s outfit turned out to be a pain in the rear. The tank top is this slinky knit stuff. The arm holes are so huge that it kept shifting and my boob would wind up poking out the armhole. Not the look I was going for at ALL!!! Nothing I can do to fix it so for $1.50 thrifted it’s gone!
Here is da Bling:
Well, I must brave the heat and harvest some veggies. My tomato plants are groaning and I know there are probably 10 million cucumbers ready!
Have a great evening and see you Thursday!!
