A Day Of Rest...

I have zipped through the house...spraying, tidying and dusting...prepping for a very relaxed day! No laundry, no real cleaning...just books and TV bingeing...I am suddenly into Girls, Togetherness and The Great British Baking Show which is a total addiction...Den and I both are crazed over this show! A baking Czar...a sweet British lady named either Mary Berry or Mary Cherry...is the goddess of flour in the UK. The show is fab...sweet little old ladies, a 17 year old student, a construction worker and many others...have baking challenges to see who will reign as the Baking Champion! It's a must see...lol!

From Amazon...

"Charlotte Silver dazzles with a ruefully funny coming-of-age novel that follows two recent Bennington grads who are determined to make it in the Big Apple."




From Amazon...

"An idyllic suburban town.

A devastating discovery.

Shocking revelations that will change three lives forever.

At the end of a long winter in well-to-do Ridgedale, New Jersey, the body of a newborn is found in the woods fringing the campus of the town's prestigious university. No one knows the identity of the baby, what ended her very short life, or how she wound up among the fallen leaves. But among the residents of Ridgedale, there is no shortage of opinions..."




Off to finish this...is it Hush Hush or just Hush?





I leave you with this thought...my motto?

    1. What is it about staying in with pajamas on!? Hausfrau looks amazing...I am trying to pace myself and not read it right now!

  2. I've been wanting Hush Hush for a while...and now I want the Kimberly McCreight book, too...and Hausfrau looks very tempting.

    Enjoy!

  3. I love The Great British Bake Off too (it's Mary Berry by the way). I requested the Library of Mount Char but got knocked back :( I'm eager to see what you think of it.
