Actually...I am reading this...sort of Southern...and really good...I am quite happy and content reading it! It suits me now. There have been some sad parts already...it begins in the 1920's South...and lots of people weren't exactly nice then...and some pigs were turned into ham...and a little boy tried to buy fabric for his sister that was reserved for "whites only" and his grandfather has to hide him and send him away to relatives in the North so he stays safe...and now I am in the 1970's South...where a sweet little boy likes glitter and pink and is teased by others...and teased by his brother because he iced cupcakes with pink icing and his dad said that he meant to "make them red but didn't add enough food coloring" as a way to protect him...so we know where this is headed... The writing is lovely...just sweetly lovely.
I hate to say it again...but it is so hot! I have no clue what to make for dinner...Den was gone until yesterday so I mostly ate lettuce sandwiches and cucumber sandwiches...so cooling and so good! Today is supposed to be the most intense day of heat! We actually had a "brown out" last night. Everything electrical stopped instantly! Amazing!
