Of the books I have read lately I can highly recommend "The Only Woman In The Room" all about the life of Heddy Lamar. A brilliant woman who you should thank every time you use your cell phone. Also, "Beartown", story of a small town youth hockey team and sides taken when bad things happen. This was written by the same author of "A Man Called Ove" which I read several years ago. I also read "Lay This Body Down", a true story of plantation owner/s and peonage workers in the 1920's-1930's in Georgia. It was somewhat nostalgic to read as it was all about the town my brother lived in and places I have seen in Georgia. I also recommend "Inside the O'Briens" by Lisa Genova. She has done another outstanding job capturing the progression of a disease (Huntington's in this book) and how the family copes. And a tear jerker, "Everything I Never Told You" by Celeste Ng. The prejudice felt by a Chinese-American couple as youth, how it formed their view when they become parents and tried to shape their children lives and the tragedy that resulted. Lastly, back in January I read "Where The Crawdads Sing", never expected the ending.
|I can see some Friday's relaxing here|
|Willie wanted pancakes, he got pancakes!|
As for family, I had a fantastic visit from William last weekend. He brought his mom and dad with him but you know I only had eyes for him. Wow - starting at about 7:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. each day he never stops.
|A trip to the playground to try to tire him......|
|Willie ate crabs with us|
|Such concentration on filling Dam-mom's pond|
|We finally did wear him out.|
For stitching, I finished Easter Peep Parade from Brenda Gervais of With Thy Needle and Thread. I stitched this on 18-count Fiddler's Cloth and think I will finish it as a pillow. It was nice to be able to stitch without cheaters.
Thanks for stopping by.....and I promise to try to take an evening to catch up on all your posts. Keep on stitching!
