Start of a Long Weekend!

Our last long weekend of the summer has started with crowds in town (no fireworks, thankfully) and the threat of rain. Today we will hang out close to home, and watch the first Ducks game of the year later this afternoon.

Finished!

This will be part of my fall display:

I have another one that is just flowers in fall colors, and just started another one last night, and that will be up probably by the end of next week.

Reading
Just to catch up on some current reading:

"The Last Book Party"--highly recommend
"Tell Me Everything"--kind of recommend. If you like books where everyone has secrets and the secrets slowly become evident, this book is for you. If you don't like books that make it clear that there is stuff the reader doesn't know, this book is not for you. This book has a first person narrator telling the story of six friends in college, with time moving from freshman year to senior year to the year the narrator was a young girl and suffered a traumatic event. Bottom line: this is no "Secret History" which is one of my favorite books of all time.
"Owl Island"-just started this one and it is promising. The story of a group of people who live on an island in Puget Sound, and the characters are interesting (so far).

Flowers
And for Kathy B
