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.

An interesting mystery
The Brutal Telling, by Louise Penny, is my latest read. I really enjoyed this mystery which is the sixth of her "Chief Inspector Gamache" series. He's a detective in Canada. The setting is a little village in Canada that is richly described and each and every character has a unique and well-defined persona. I like the fact that you aren't sure who committed the hideous murder until the end, and the path of discovery really kept my interest. This book also made me want to visit the Queen Charlotte Islands, off of the coast of Canada, but I'm not sure I could survive the airplane ride to get there. I would give another Inspector Gamache novel a try sometime, I think.
