And The Reading Goes On And On...

Finished this...what an amazing sort of coming of age book...the sun is staying out way too long...everything is dying...and Julia...narrator...is just trying to figure out why she's quiet and alone and can't talk easily to boys. This book is so much more than that, though. It is beautifully poignantly written and it felt as though this event really could happen. Every day the sun stays out longer and longer. There are real time people and clock time people...I am not sure yet what I would be...I loved this book.




Reading this...sweet and lovely...I love the way this author writes.




I want this...I veer toward this style almost all of the time! It's me...plus I just got my nails done in an almost matching color...lol...can you see the little sparkly specks and do my fingers look wrinkled?








Lucy and I have just come in from a long walk...the rest of my day is free...I am going to spend the rest of the day figuring out what to do about my dead cooktop and reading!!!
And thinking about that dress!!! That lovely flowy summery dress...
Lucy before our walk...




Lucy after our walk...and I do all of the pushing!

  4. I gravitate to nails in the darker shades...I think I must have that same color right now!

    Lucy's funny...is she empathizing with you doing all that work?
