So…this weekend went about normally…we stayed in…my fear of flu is kind of overwhelming me. The only state that is flu free is Hawaii and I don’t think I want to fly anywhere. We were going to go out to dinner Saturday night…my first time out at night in a while but Den freaked me out about food prep in restaurants during flu season. I worry that my immune system isn’t what it should be after all that I went through last year. Thank goodness TV, books, games and puzzles entertain me. I am hoping that all of the above hold my interest for a few more weeks! That and hand sanitizer! And not touching things and not breathing! Whew!
I finished slightly south of simple over the weekend…and started the next one in this series. I guess this could be chick lit but to me it’s just good writing by a Southern writer who writes about a hugely dysfunctional family. Ansley…the mother…has done some unusual things in her marriage in order to have children. And in the first book her three daughters and their children all come home to stay with her. In the second book they are all still there…still trying to deal with their issues! I really want to live in their house…it sounds lovely, peaceful, beachy. Well perhaps not peaceful until these three daughters and their children leave!
Some new books…all from Edelweiss…
The Summer List...from Amazon…”There’s not a word or plot line out of place in this fabulous debut about two girlhood friends from a small lakeside town who reunite as adults to try to salvage their broken relationship. Dive beneath the surface and you’ll find a complex and finely wrought story as full of mystery and vitality as the lake itself. These characters and their stories are going to stick with you for a long, long time.” -Meg Mitchell Moore, author of The Admissions and The Captain’s Daughter
The Myth Of Perpetual Summer…from Amazon…”A struggling girl uncovers her family’s history and sees how the lies of the past echo throughout their dysfunctional lives today. From the national bestselling author of Whistling Past the Graveyard comes a moving coming-of-age tale set in the tumultuous sixties that harkens to both Ordinary Grace and The Secret Life of Bees.” Key word for me? Dysfunctional!
What Should Be Wild…from Amazon…“Delightful and darkly magical. Julia Fine has written a beautiful modern myth, a coming-of-age story for a girl with a worrisome power over life and death. I loved it.” (Audrey Niffenegger, author of The Time Traveler’s Wife and Her Fearful Symmetry) OMG…I love books like this…
Tell Me No Lies…from Edelweiss…”The pulse-pounding sequel to Follow Me Back—the perfect thriller for the online generation…” What I have learned is that this is a sequel and that this author writes on Wattpad and has tons of online followers. I will be checking this out!
Sunday was a huge football day…the Eagles are going to the Super Bowl! Den and I worked together and made Baked Wings…the recipe came from a blog called Brown Eyed Baker…these were totally baked in the oven and so good…in our house the spicy are separated from the sweet…heeheehee!
We also made Barbacoa Tacos…from another awesome blog called Gimme Some Oven…we opted to have ours in a bowl over Mexican Rice over black beans over cilantro over avocado slices…you get what a mean…we had a bowl not a taco…less messy and incredibly yummy!
Last thoughts! Fly Eagles Fly…
