So...


I didn't read any of the books I planned on reading this week. I finished The Yard and picked up and read A Good American in a day...
I had no intention of reading it this week but once I started it I just read it until I was done! It was really good...spanned a huge period of time...and was sad and happy and absorbing. Den was away...it was raining...and with my new laundry system in place...I had time!!!
Then I randomly chose this one from my Vine stack...it's really good, too.

So...quite a surprise!







I did decide on shoes...these...they are so soft and comfy and look different in person!
You have to trust me on this one...they are spunkier on...now I want more by this company. They are walkable...I can even hop and run in them...again...trust me.



I also bought these...love them!!! Love shoes that I can just slip on and go...these are semi walk able...if I concentrate and watch where I am going. No running, no hopping...just one step at a time walking.

So...I am weak!!!




Lucy exploitation at its finest...taking her picture while she is napping and without her permission.




So sweet...

So...are you ready for a great week end?

It's supposed to be summery hot here!!!

  1. Everyone loves A Good American!

    The shoes are adorable, but my hopping (in anything) days are over.

    It's supposed to be nice here this weekend, but not summery hot - only 75 tomorrow and 82 on Sunday.

  3. I just twisted my ankle jumping over a huge puddle trying to get to lunch. Monsoon conditions in So Cal right now. Unbelievable! Flooding everywhere. My point... those shoes would have killed me.

    Lucy looks very adorable when sleeping...or even when not!

  5. I haven't read A Good American- but I am glad it was a book that made you want to keep reading. I love your description of it! Great shoes- glad you can hop in them. :) Comfort is always important. What a sweet picture of Lucy!!

  7. Wow I don't know Patty. What do you do? A book reviewer?; a writer?; a fashionista?

    Those wedges are completely adorable. Of late I've been dreaming of dancing to Abba's nos in a frilly frock and ribbons in head and was struggling in my mind to fit my feet into some good shoes. You've resolved my fix!! Now I can choreograph my steps in mind and dance away!

    And I was strangely reminded of Pearl S Buck when I saw the books and made to wonder why the markets here never had them when I so much wanted to read them!
