Mike and I had an Extremely lazy Labor Day weekend! Just the way I like it. On Saturday we spent a wonderful afternoon in Barnes & Noble.
I bought the book pictured above. Just two weeks ago I had snubbed this book when my friend Patti told me about it. I was all "oh that is not a very literary author" and saying other assorted snobby things.....well, when we went to the store and I read the first few pages, I was hooked! In fact, right after finishing this post I am going back to reading this book. It has a great story and is a real page turner. Just shows you....don't ever be a snob!
I got this magazine, The Believer. It is an interesting mix of articles.
Also was able to sneak this book in. It talks about all of the old classics; Are You There God? It's Me Margaret (one of the best books ever written!), Harriet the Spy, Ramona Beasley, A Wrinkle in Time, etc. I love books about books!
I also got the new Somerset Studio and the new Where Women Create. What a bonanza!
I managed to stitch a bit on Monday while watching the Cubs. I am working on Sampler Lady exclusively until I finish it. I am very slow. I am planning on going for an eye exam soon. I have hit the phase where reading glasses are needed. I am hoping I can get a Lasik surgical adjustment so that I can see up close as well as I could when I was 16. I hope that is an option.
Isn't this just a beautiful tote bag? I wanted this when I first saw it this spring at B&N but could not justify it....however, my Mom surprised me with one this weekend! I am going to cart The Sampler Lady around in it!
As I was standing on a chair taking pictures of the above treasures Mike wondered what the heck I was doing. I snapped one of him walking into the dining room. He is such a QT!
