Tomorrow is Nicholas' first All-Star game! It'll be fun to watch the team . . . they have been working so hard; dedicating so much of their time and energy on the field. Good luck to TVALL All-Stars!
Since I have been spending so much of my time at the baseball fields, I have been chatting with the other moms about books! Oh, how I enjoy hearing and discovering good reads. Last week I read Look Again by Lisa Scottoline. It was the first time I have ever read one of her books. I have to say that I thorougly enjoyed it - so much so that I read it in a day and a half! After that I decided I needed to pace myself; I also felt bad for spending money on a book and finishing it up so quickly. So I took Noah to the library so we could check-out some books. We both walked out of there happy with our picks. He had a stack of 7 books high and I walked out with two books off the new release shelf. I checked-out The Money Class by Suze Orman, and of course this was more of a reference read . . . I have no intention of reading it page by page. I'm interested, mostly, on the retirement chapter and, so far, it's pretty good :0). My next library check-out was Dancing Lessons by Cheryl Burke from Dancing With the Stars television show. I have to say it was a really good read. I did my best to take my time and not read it so quickly . . . It's an easy read, but very inspiring; and I have always loved to read biographies/autobiographies. I believe, quite strongly, in the power of another's life story - their life journey. I don't watch that show, but my mom does! Faithfully! And now, I just might add that to the list of shows I watch :0) And finally, at the recommendation of my cousin I picked up Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford. OMG! This one is, so up my alley of reading . . . The style of writing, the historical fiction - I am just giddy about this summer read. It's a wartime-era novel, and I am just forcing myself not to read it too quickly.
After my visit to Target yesterday, to pick up my latest book, I walked out with a strew of book titles on a tattered envelope I found in my purse. So, needless to say, I will not have a problem with what to read; rather what book I will read next!
And now, so my post today doesn't go without pictures . . . Here's what our week has been like in pictures!
*We have been busy - so all these pictures were taken with my point & shoot camera. Not with my fancy-dancy one. So please excuse the unfocused, underexposed/overexposed, bland color looking pictures.
