Take A Break Wednesday! Not!

It's gorgeous here today! Today involves lawn mowing, deck sitting, lawn tidying...usually Wednesday is a play day but we are switching that to tomorrow. Tomorrow is a buying day. We need a deck rug...the beautiful one we had last year disappeared...yep...gone! Den needs a new electric toothbrush. We need stuff...lots of different kinds of miscellaneous stuff...the bits and bobs of daily life. I am still stressing over my deck rug...which I swear was brand new last year...I have a feeling that Den tossed it out and after further intense interrogation...he did!

New books...from lovely publishers and the even more lovely Edelweiss!

This one...phantasmagoric, surreal...much anticipated...all descriptive words from Amazon...for this one! I love surreal!

Amazon says..."From the award-winning, New York Times bestselling author of The Monsters of Templeton and Arcadia, an exhilarating novel about marriage, creativity, art, and perception." I love perception!

From Amazon..."From a unique new talent comes a fast-paced debut, introducing a heroine whose dark visions bring to light secrets that will heal or destroy those around her . . ." I live for dark visions!
From Amazon..."Each of the three Schuyler sisters has her own world-class problems, but in the autumn of 1966, Pepper Schuyler's problems are in a class of their own. When Pepper fixes up a beautiful and rare vintage Mercedes and sells it at auction, she thinks she's finally found a way to take care of herself and the baby she carries, the result of an affair with a married, legendary politician..." and there is more!

I think I am making a yummy spring soup for dinner tonight. It's filled with peas, asparagus, spinach, new baby potatoes!

Happy Wednesday!




  1. The soup looks so yummy. I love homemade soup! Have fun with all your random outdoor activities. Not too long ago you were shoveling snow :) I guess the girls are getting anxious to go out in their deck tents, hmm?

    1. Yes...I have been walking them in their stroller and they seem to love it!

  2. Fates and Furies looks pretty good. I requested it the other day.

  3. It is nice to have a new season to look forward to, plan for, and enjoy. I hope you do, too!

  4. Oooh- all these covers look great! Hope they are as good as they look. :)

    Good luck finding another rug!

  5. I want that soup because it was wet and cool here today. I'm glad spring will be back tomorrow.

  6. That soup looks so yummy....the books are all new to me, of course. Enjoy!

  7. The soup looks really yummy. Laughed aloud when you further interrogated your hubby and got the answer you did. Hope you enjoy The Infinite Sea, I have yet to read the ones for the other two sisters, but liked Pepper's story.
