There's always an excuse to leave the dishes, dusting, scrubbing and especially yard work for later. My favorite excuses are sewing, reading, cooking, and now decorating my new house with custom projects. Getting away from home in our new camper is also a great excuse -- although that's just another house to clean! Here's what's going on with me and my favorite hobbies.

Little Brother was the best book I've read recently. It was a little bit far-fetched, but the technology and security discussed and the history of those issues kept me rapt. I would highly recommend this book to any gamers or geek kids out there. The book will keep me thinking for a while, and I like that in a book. There are two afterwords that add to the sinister feeling. Very "Orwellian." I need someone to read this so we can talk about it. I gave it to my husband; I think he will like it.
Next on my list is The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness. Might be a good complement to Little Brother, since it's about a society where everyone can hear everyone else's thoughts. No privacy whatsoever.
