A Beautiful Day!

I hate it when I think I am going to love a book and it turns out to be just ok. I then find myself reading and researching what others thought about it...and over analyzing my own thoughts...that's what happened with a recent book...it began with an exciting character that I thought I would love...until she became irritating and I abruptly fell out of love with her...so sad. Has this ever happened to you?

So...back to this one...I put it down for a moment and got distracted by Den for a week...but it's about a friendship that got off track and Maine and a food writer...and it's summery...and it's everything I should love in a summery book. And it's not one I thought I would read this week. And I am reading it!

I think I need to go back to not planning what to read next and just winging it! Yeah for winging it!

Off to watering and dead bud snipping...and some deck time with my girls!

They both love the same kitty toys...the ones Ti told me about...kitty cassettes from Etsy!



  1. The book thing has happened to me a lot lately.

    The kitties look content.

    You haven't posted any food posts or I have missed them. No cooking going on in the kitchen yet?

  2. Yeah, I always wonder what's wrong with me when I don't love a book I think I should.

  3. I hate when that happens with books. It throws me totally off!

  4. I'm allllllllll about winging it. I wouldn't have it any other way.

  5. I really hate not loving a book that I've been looking forward to....and really don't enjoy plodding through, knowing it's like water torture.

    I think we need to give ourselves permission to grab the books we want to read...at least now and then. One book a week, maybe?

    Your numbers of books read are really moving up there! Congrats!

  6. Sometimes books take us by surprise (both ways). I say- wing it! :)
