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.

Death of an Expert Witness
I finished P.D. James Death of an Expert Witness. It took me a while. It was a good book-- kind of a classic. James gets rave reviews as a mystery writer. I must admit, I never knew who did it until about the last 10 pages, which is a good thing. The book is very "literary." Every character and scene is meticulously described. I decided you just have to enjoy the process of reading and the rhythm of her descriptions. Remember, I'm a plot person, so sometimes I become impatient. I've heard of this book for a long time (it was written in 1977) and not long ago read a positive review of it, so I decided it would be on my reading list. I'm glad I read it but I don't think I'll read any of her other books.
