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 Book about Shakespeare?
Artichoke's Heart is a really touching book about a high school teenager who is overweight and eventual happiness and even romance. She does lose some weight, but also becomes comfortable with herself, even though she's not a skinny model-type teen. She is bullied at school and learns to deal with that also. It's a very happy, feel-good book. I wish all teens who have trouble fitting in had such positive role models and found such genuine friends.
Now I am going to read Spanking Shakespeare a humorous bookabout a teen named Shakespeare who also doesn't fit in. He's also a writer . . .
