But in the evening, I've been spending a lot of time on the deck. My husband and I will sit at the table with our cold drinks, alternating between watching the birds and reading our books. We put a hummingbird feeder on the railing and we can't get enough of watching those little guys.
I've been so excited that my favorite authors have come out with a new book this month. I knew I had to read the previous one again, and I just finished it and bought the new one on Sunday. I don't usually buy novels, but I do from the guys:
They write thrillers and have the most interesting main character. I can hardly put the books down. But Rick is very understanding, and so is Eric, if dinner is late or the laundry doesn't get folded. They can get into a book that way too.
While at the library I found another favorite author had just released a book in each of her two series.Have you read anything by her? One series is about an ex-lawyer who own an herb shop and solves mysteries, and the other is a fictional series about Beatrix Potter. Very good reads!
When I'm not reading in the evening, I'm working on this new quilt. I love to sit back and do the hand quilting. It's so relaxing and satisfying.
So, I think I'll be set for awhile. Rick and I are going up to Lake Michigan for a few days on the beach. Nice lazy days before starting back to work at the school. How are you spending these last precious days of summer?
