It has been almost a week since my boy moved out, and gosh it has flown by fast! No time to think about it much, just wading through the aftermath, I have been cleaning....alot:(
Some children leave lots of stuff behind, well maybe yours don't, but mine did and I have been trying to put it all in some sort of order.
By night time I have been ready to just relax and watch a new show or read. I ran in to Target earlier this week for some reason which I've long forgotten, and while there I was in search of a new book. I always need a book on hand. Their selection was awfully disappointing though, same old books, I mean Kite Runner and most of the other book club selections have been there forever and ever and ever. I was ready to give up and head over to Barnes and Noble but really didn't want to as it was getting late plus it was bitter cold outside, like 1 degree cold, and then I saw IT. Twilight, first in the vampire series LOL!
Now I have to tell you this book is REALLY off the beaten path for me. I don't care for mystical creature books, super hero's, things that fly... including vampires! Both my grown daughters read the series and couldn't put it down, so I said well..... I'll just give it a try.
OOOOOOH, I was up late that night reading in bed, Cleo and I were so scared! HA! Actually the book is well written and a fast read. Like the Harry Potter series, it was meant for a much younger group of readers and I haven't decided whether I am hooked enough to buy the next one. I am however wondering if Edward will bite whats-her-name and turn her in to a vampiress, so maybe I'll get sucked into the next book afterall, no pun intended!
I am just itching to get stitching. Lots of ideas on paper, tomorrow I'll browse through my fabric stash and hopefully find what I need to get started.
Enjoy the weekend!
