Reading: I did quite a bit of reading in August . And read some really good books! After completing My Grandmother Asked Me To Tell You She's Sorry and A Man Called Ove , Fredrik Backman has joined my list of favorite authors. I can't wait to read more of his work!
I just finished Before We Were Yours by Lisa Wingate - a fictionalized story based on the shocking real life Tennessee Children's Home Society (an organization headed by Georgia Tann which often lied or otherwise tricked birth parents into surrendering their children for adoption. Even going so far as to kidnap children, or steal newborns while the mother was still under labor anesthesia, later telling them that their babies had died in childbirth. She then charged adoptive parents exorbitant fees. It was a terrible story, and a very good book. Any novel which leaves me wanting to know more about the real life events on which was based is a good book in my opinion!
Now I'm on to Then We Came to the End by Joshua Ferris and The Boleyn King by Laura Andersen.
My non-fiction this month is She's Still There by Chrystal Evans Hurst. I will also be participating in the Proverbs 31 Ministries on-line Bible study based on this book.
Eating: Ugh... maybe I should just stop including this section. It's honestly getting embarrassing to have to admit month after month how terrible I have been eating. Of course, the easy remedy would be to just start eating better. But...
Working On: I'll give you one guess. Did you say "washcloths"? dingdingdingding You got it! It seems as if the stream of washcloth orders is never ending. I also have a newborn football cocoon set to work on.
Anticipating: The best thing I am anticipating is that my handsome husband gets home from New York today! It's only been a few days, but I've missed him bunches.
Feeling: A little overwhelmed by the "free" time I seem to have during the day now that the grand kid is in kindergarten and I'm not watching him while his mom is at work. Right now, I have had enough work to keep me busy and occupied. If things start to slow down, I'm considering finding a knit and crochet group or something to join.
