So this morning instead of walking I sat in my chair with a package of frozen peas on my sore leg (a good ice pack) and finished reading my current book.
The book I finished reading was Saving CeeCee Honeycut by Beth Hoffman and it was a great book. It was her first book and I sure hope she writes another!!
This is off the cover: "All I knew was that I was flying through the night in a fancy car with a woman who showed up out of nowhere and offered to take me, messed-up life and all, to a place called Savannah."
It is told from the point of view of a 12 year old girl. Her mom dies and she goes to live with her great aunt Tootie.
It made me laugh and cry and the characters are wonderful. It is the best book I've read in a long time!
I thought the book had had some great lines in it and I found myself underlining parts of the book. Here are a few quotes I especially liked from the book.
"Wisdom comes from experience - from knowin' each day is a gift and accepting it with gladness."
"Don't grow up too fast, darling. Age is inevitable, but if you nurture a childlike heart, you'll never ever grow old."
"She was so alive and full of original ideas..... While other women were busy being proper, she was busy cultivating her spirit."
".......it occurred to me that that's what friends should do: cherish the good and pretend not to notice the harmless rest.
I learned of the book on AuntieA's Blog after she read and liked it. Thanks AuntieA!!
I baked a batch of Chocolate Chip cookies for the Easter Egg Hunt at church on Saturday. Then put two of them in plastic snack bags and they will be given out to the kids who come to the egg hunt.
I had a couple of pictures to post today but blogger wasn't cooperating with me so today's post as no pictures.
And that's what I've been doing so far today.
Hope you are well and healthy and able to walk as far as you want to.
