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.

Alex Cross, one of my favorites
I finished Cross Country, by James Patterson. As I've said before, I really like these books -- I find them exciting and interesting. I'm not sure Patterson was trying to make a political statement, but I learned a lot (of bad stuff) about Nigeria, Darfur, Somalia, and other places in Africa. Once again I am so thankful I live in the USA! But, nevertheless, it is heartbreaking what some people on this planet go through on a daily basis. Some of his books don't have a very satisfying ending (that's why he can keep writing them) but I liked this ending. It's a quick read, and even though he's written a lot of Alex Cross novels, you don't have to read them in order, so you can read this one any time!
