Nothing Much . . . and a new favorite author!

That's exactly what I did today! I mean, I picked up and put away and straightened and 'nested' a bit. We played a couple of games of skip-bo (so far I am in the lead, only time will tell who is the week's 'grand champion'), and one very long hand of double-15 dominoes. I read a bit, and played on the laptop some (thank goodness for free wi-fi!), and worked on a little crafting project.

I made hubby a sandwich for lunch and chili dogs for dinner, then washed up the handful of dishes afterwards. This camper is a dish washing free zone, which means we use paper or plastic about 97% of the time. I had about half a dozen spoons, a couple of forks and knives, and a couple of small pans to wash. That was it!

So now I'm watching DWTS (Dancing With The Stars) much to hubby's disappointment. After all, there IS a football game on somewhere! But in a few minutes I'm going to shut this thing down and start reading a new book.

Have you ever read anything by Mary Kay Andrews??? She's a Georgia girl, and the first book of hers that I read was her newest "Deep Dish" and I laughed the whole time I was reading it, so I got on eBay and ordered 3 more. I'm one of those people who likes to keep her books and read and re-read them if they are good, so I'll have a bunch of new books to add to my library. (Side note - if you are into the Food Network or cooking shows, etc. you will love this one, but if you are a Southerner, you'll love it, too!)

Savannah Blues was great, too, although the language was a bit rough for my tastes. Savannah Breeze is a follow-up to 'blues' but I haven't been able to get into it because of one of the story lines - aging grandparents, meds, hospitals - sound a bit familiar??? Too close to home for me to read right now. I'll do it later, though. Soooooo, I'm about to start another of her books - Little Bitty Lies - and I haven't even read an excerpt or anything, so we'll see how it goes. If it is anywhere near as good as Deep Dish or Savannah Blues, I am sure I'll love it!

So, nothing much going on, and that's a really good thing! We may do some riding around tomorrow, and Wed. I'll be going down to get my mom and bring her up here for a few days. I'll check back in soon! Becky

Dear Becky,

Glad you are having a good time and are able to finally relax and do nothing. Just what you need to recharge your batteries. Thanks for the author recommendation; I love to read and I'll check her out.

Enjoy your vacation.

Glad you are finally getting away for a little time for yourself and glad the rain has stopped. We are getting a little touch of the fall this week and it feels so good. I still have the crud. Finally gave in and went to the doc yesterday. Just sinus and allergies. Don't beat Wayne too much or he won't play any more. Take care.
