What’s Going On…
Today is Friday 13th. I can’t really say that I’ve ever noticed this day to be more or less lucky than any other.
This has been a pretty slow week. Just enough rain to keep us inside but not enough to really be helpful in watering plants and keeping the pollen down. It’s actually been kind of sucky weather.
I got a few little plants the other day to put in a tiny, tiny garden area. I’ll probably end up with about a dozen mixed veggie plants. But you know after years of a HUGE garden I was feeling a bit deprived. I had to get something!! I’m a plantaholic!! The hubs has agreed to help me get it set up this weekend.
I’m waiting on the UPS man to deliver my new pruners today. Maybe I’ll get out and work on some hedge trimming. The trash truck just picked up the rose bush remnants so I can make a new pile for next week.
In Book News…
This week I finished up All Things Cease To Appear by Elizabeth Brundage. Granted it’s a big book at 400 pages, but I felt like it took me a long time to read this one. I just didn’t love it. We follow the lives of several people in a small town and how they intersect. There are very unlikable characters and characters that just don’t make a lot of sense.
Three brothers lose their parents and then the bank takes their farm. An uppity couple from the city buys the house and land. The bothers end up working for the couple…bad things happen in the spooky (haunted) house. Lots of religious aspects tied in. Overall – one I’d say you could skip and not feel like you missed much.
Next, I’m excited to crack open June by Miranda Beverly-Whittemore. I loved her book Bittersweet and this one seems promising. It’s out later this month.
Hope you all enjoy your weekend! Have a lucky Friday 13th!!!
