I did read in front of the fireplace Tuesday night and finished reading
I enjoyed the book and thought it was very good.
A couple of quotes I liked from the book.
She looked at the pink toes of her new boots and knew she just had to accept that her day wasn't going to go the way she had planned, because nobody knew better than she did that sometimes your life turns itself on its head without asking you for permission.
That's what I love about humanity. Just when you start thinking the whole world's full of selfish, cruel individuals, you realize that actually, given the chance, all we want to do is be nice to one another and help each other.
If any of you are looking for a book for your book club I think this would be a good one. There are even some book discussion questions at the end of the book.
This is the first book I've finished reading this year. Not such a good start for a goal to read 75 during the year!!
I stayed home yesterday to wait for my new kitchen table to be delivered. I am happy to say it came mid morning and was delivered by two very nice men.The table is higher than a normal table and we need to go out any buy some tall chairs for it. These tall tables seem to be the new thing. Lots of them out there. I didn't like the chairs that went with the table but have found some I like and will get them once Kenny gets back home.
A sitting area in the living room by the front windows.Curtains for these windows are on their way in the mail.Talking about windows - I have a bit of a problem with the windows. The bottom part of the window comes forward for easy cleaning and is fine. The problem is the top window. Not only doesn't it pull forward to clean it, it doesn't even open. I was reading the information sheet about the windows thinking I was missing something and it said, the outside of the window will get clean from a good rain!!! How crazy is that!!
This next picture is taken from sitting in the chair by the living room windowsYesterday I cleaned some windows the best I could and ironed the curtains that I have so far.

In the afternoon my daughter Debbi, and grandkids Antonio and Taryn came by for a visit. Always great to see them!! :-)
I'm back at the old house today packing up still more stuff. It sounds like a lot of trips but remember I'm bringing stuff in a Corvette so I can't really take all that much. Once Kenny gets back with the FJ we will be able to finish things up. We really have plenty of time because the house isn't even for sale yet.
I wish you all a great Thursday and hope that it will be a Happy One for you. :-)
