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.

Time for a Teen Romance
I finished Deadline. At first, I really didn't think I was going to like it, but then I told myself, "Get over it. Suspend disbelief!" Because I really couldn't believe that a senior in high school could find out he was going to die and not tell anyone about it. So, after I suspended disbelief, I thought the book was pretty good. Definitely a message in there. Something about not judging people by what you THINK they are -- giving people a chance, taking time to learn about them, and care about them, and things like that. Good book for promoting some good discussions among teens.
Now I'm reading Perfect Chemistry, by Simone Elkeles. I've read her book Leaving Paradise and enjoyed it, so I'm looking forward to this one. It's been very popular, and hard to get at the library. As a matter of fact, I need to hurry and finish this one becuase there's a hold on it (someone else is waiting for it.)
