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.

New book . . .
What the Dead Know is an excellent crime novel. It really is a CRIME novel, not a suspense, thriller, or who-done-it. Lippman is a great story-teller. She gives wonderful descriptions of characters and settings. I like the way her novels jump from the present to the past, slowly filling in the blanks. It was just a very satisfying read.
Now I am going to read Little Bee, which I am really excited about. I've heard lots of good things about this book-- it's been on the best-seller list, and I had to wait a couple of weeks to get it through inter-library loan. Must be good . . .
