Cheerful bouquet of blooms from the garden.
It is pouring rain now, helping to grow more flowers and maybe even a tomato or two.... I will spend a quiet day with several library books.
I am reading another Hamish Macbeth mystery, and a John O'Donohue book called
"Eternal Echoes".
I also brought home a novel by Tracy Chevalier, "Burning Bright" about William Blake and London in the late 1700's, an Alexander McCall Smith mystery novel "The Miracle at Speedy Motors" (love this series about Botswana and the #1 Ladies Detective Agency!), and a "Harmony" novel by Philip Gulley who writes about the imaginary small town of Harmony, Indiana.
Sometimes I do check out more that I can read....but we can renew on line with our own personal public library accounts! Or I can return them and get them at another time.
Today does seem to be a good day for reading...of course I have a quilt top to baste and I could begin sewing a wedding quilt for a nephew....but first reading. I need to finish the Hamish story. Off to extreme northwest rural Scotland now!


Here is a book just coming out this month by a local author. I have read the rave reviews!

The book is "The Word Diet" by Rhonda Bell Holmes. It is a thirty day journal/guide to creating a more fulfilled and faith-filled life. I will have to find it at our local Barnes and Nobles soon. (It is already available on-line with Barnes!)
Good news just came in the mailbox.....I sold this watercolor painting at a local gallery! Nothing lifts my spirits as much as making and selling my art!

I love this painting! So vivid and brilliantly alive. Sigh. I must get back to painting!
