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.

A rock 'n roll book
I finished Perfect Chemistry and thought it was a really good teenage romance book. Has everything you could want -- guy from the "wrong side of the tracks" falls for the prom queen. Fairly predictable, but still keeps you reading. The guy is in a gang and doesn't want to be, so that is an element that could educate some teens about a world they aren't familiar with. A good message about being who you really are, as opposed to who people think you should be.
Now I'm reading something lighter called Born to Rock by Gordon Korman. It's a quick read, too. I'm getting the urge to read something "adult" so I think that will be next on the list. I'll let you know how it goes.
