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.

Another book on the Abe Lincoln List
Little Bee was a great book, as expected. The thought processes of the characters so wonderfully described, keep you entranced. The books starts out in present day, and the author does a great job of slowly explaining the background story. It was heartbreaking, but really a joy to read.
Now for something completely different -- I've started Right Behind You, by Gail Giles. Also a very sad story of a boy who killed his little neighbor by burning him. He spent many years trying to be rehabilitated and put his life back together, but apparently his past will catch up with him. It's a short, quick, read so I'll let you know soon.
