I can't believe how fast the week went whizzing by. Even though I hardly cracked open a book, I did get a lot accomplished. I had to put aside my books and computer to tackle a painting job that I have been planning for awhile now. It wasn't exactly the best time to stop reading for an entire week, but that's just how it worked out. I'll just have to get caught up on my reviews and reading this week.
I'm so happy with my little home improvement project and even happier that I'm done with it! My kitchen and dining room was in desperate need of a coat of paint. I've hated my kitchen for years and finally did something about it. I couldn't have done it without the help of my way cool mom!! I never knew she was such a painting guru!! I guess you're never too old to learn things about your mother! Even though it was hard work, we really had a good time and we worked so well together. And the result is that I now have a beautiful, bright kitchen that looks even bigger now that I painted over all of the dark wood trim work that I've hated for so long. I just love it! Next project on the schedule is the living room, but since there are construction revovations to be done, my dad will be helping me with that one.
As I mentioned, I had to sacrifice my reading this week but I'm planning on spending most of today trying to catch up. I'm reading two very good books and can't wait to get back to them. They are THE LAST CHILD by John Hart and BEACH TRIP by Cathy Holton. Both books are equally good and it's hard to choose which one to pick up first!
And as if I'm not already behind enough, I got a notice from the library that DROOD is ready for me to pick up! What's that - 750-some pages? Oh My God! When it rains it pours! I've been on the waiting list for that book ever since it came out!
I'm also so behind in my blog reading it isn't funny. Let me just apologize now for being so absent. I'll be spending my evenings catching up on what y'all have been reading. I thought I'd be able to do some blog reading at night after painting each day, but I was so physically exhausted I couldn't keep my eyes open.
I'm off now to grab my books and start reading! What have you decided to do with this glorious Sunday?
