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.

I have to stop!
I have read 61 pages of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and I've had enough. I get it. It's exactly the same story as the original, but a desirable trait in the women is the defensive arts. Every journey they make, they have to stop and avoid or kill some of the "undead." They are also very flippant about the many deaths of friends and acquaintances at the hands of the zombies. There doesn't seem to be any concern or mourning. It is just weird. Maybe, if I read farther something significant would HAPPEN involving the zombies, but I felt like I was reading Pride and Prejudice again, and although it's been a long time, I'm just not up for that right now. Not with my reading list as long as it is. So . . . next on the list is What the Dead Know, by Laura Lippman, a classic crime thriller. I'm hoping I get to finish it.
