I 'm back to doing some reading again... It seems that it goes in spirts... I'll read books one after the other and then all of a sudden I stop reading for a while...
Well... I am Happy to Report that I finished reading The Kite Runner....The Kitchen Gods Wife by Amy Tan and Not A Sparrow Falls...and another one of which I have forgotten the name already!!!!
They were all very different books .. But the one that I read the fastest and really enjoyed was Not A Sparrow Falls by Linda Nichols... While reading this book I could not wait to read more every day..
It was like watching a movie to me... And the end made me bring out the box of tissues but it was a good ending!!! Give it a try if you see the book...

I also picked up The Memory Keepers Daughter by Kim Edwards which I will start right away because I saw last night that the Movie is coming on TV in a few weeks... So I want to read the book first!!!!I think that the books are always better than the Movie.. Don't ya think???
Memoirs of A Geisha by Arther Golden... I started reading this one in the car today after I bought it while waiting for Hubby and it caught my interest right away.. But I have to read the other one first !!!!
And Jodi Picoult... The Pact.... She is a very interesting writer so I'm sure this one will be good also...
I read Vanished by her and it was good !!!
P.S. The best part is that I but all my Books at the Thrift Stores for 50 cents or 1.00 !!!!
I prefer to buy them because when I take them out of the Library.. I feel "Pressured" to hurry up and read it....and How can you resit such buys.. Then I always pass the Book on to someone else!!!!

This week I made a Green Cardigan for Samantha.. I made it partly from a pattern and partly from my head... or should I say... with my hands or my needles... Oh You know what I mean... I winged most of it !!!!!
I used a yarn that I bought on sale at JoAnns....Sensations Celebration... It has some nice flecks of colors in it.. Green -Gold-Yellow and a darker Green...

This is The Sweater I have been working on in-between other projects...
This one is for Paige... I used Plymouth Colorspun DK for it and a pattern by Almedahls called Texas...

Today was " SISTERS" Day .... My Sister Janie lives two hours west from Donna and Donna lives two hours North of me..... So I told them both to come over so we could all get together.. (Which we never seem to have time to do)... They came to me today and we had a great visit.. We went to Port Canaveral and had a Delicious lunch sitting outdoors at a Restaurant on the water...
After chatting through lunch and stuffing ourselves we went to Jetty Park and had a nice warm sunny walk out on the Pier...
We then came back to my Condo on Cocoa Beach and sat on the Balcony having tea and dessert!!!

My Sister Janie brought be a Beautiful plant with pretty little dark pink and white flowers... Appropriately the name of the Flower is Star SISTERS !!!! She gave us both a plant.... She always seems to find the perfect gift for the occasion !! Thank You so much Janie !!! :)
We should make this a yearly tradition!!!.. " Sisters Day"

P.S. Thats "Me" in the middle.. I'm The Baby in The Family !!!
Gee Wiz... We could have given Donna seat!!! :)
