So, it's a cloudy in Arizona today. Not many of these kinds of days in the Valley of the Sun. I love bright sunshine, so when it clouds up I begin to feel a bit gloomy myself.
So to cheer myself up, I am doing some of my favorite things....that is reading and stitching. I am working on a gift for my good friend Kim. She will be coming to visit here in October and her birthday is the 22nd, so of course the stitching is Halloween related. Although I am not much on Halloween decorating myself, she loves Halloween and decorates and stitches on Halloween themed items as the 31st looms ahead. I am looking forward to the visit and I know she will like the surprises I have in store for her birthday. I won't post pictures until we actually celebrate as I really do want her to be surprised. Will let you know how it turns out.
I am currently reading House Rules by Jodi Picoult for my book club which meets on Monday. Don't know that I will have it completely read, but it's a nice group of women, so I will go to the meeting anyway. It's been a good read so far and I have always enjoyed Picoult's books.
I am also reading Les Miserables. Whew, a very long book, but very interesting. The jury is out right now as to the rating, but I am still reading, so either I just want to get through over a 1,000 page book or I am still hooked into the story.
Next up on the book list is Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn and A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness.
Guess I should get busy here, as the day is slipping by as time usually does. Some days I wish I could slow it down. When I was kid I always wanted to speed things up. How life changes.
Until next time,
