Memorial Day Weekend this year will be nothing but MULCH. We have lived in the same house for 5 years, with its huge beds all around the house and yard and have not mulched yet. So in an effort to finally control the weeds that normally completely choke the beds, I had 6 cubic yards of mulch delivered and the weekend (and probably the next several weekends) will be spend weeding, spraying, sprinkling, shoveling, and raking. Between sessions, I will be trying to scrub the dirt out of my fingernails, reading (what better way to rest my back!), and maybe grilling out something. I'm not sure what the kids will be doing. I can bet whatever it is it won't be helping.
My daughter is playing her flute in the school band at the Memorial Day tribute at the town square park. We will all be there for that.
Here is what I have been reading:
Dead Reckoning, Sookie Stackhouse #11, Charlaine Harris. I have my autographed book! I really hate to say this, but I am a little disappointed with the book. It was good, but left me wishing for something more. I didn't feel much of a connection with Sookie this time. It did leave the reader wondering, will there be more romance between Sookie and Bill? I think she will use her Fae wish to wish one of her vampire boyfriends human. Will it be Eric, Bill? I guess I will just have to wait and see.
Dark Gold, Christing Feehan. This is book 2 in the Dark Series. Good Supernatural Romance. Great escape reading.
Every Witch Way But Dead, Hollows book #3 and A Fistful of Charms, Hollows book #4, Kim Harrison. This series just keeps getting better and better. I love impulsive but sincere, Rachel Morgan and her living vampire roommate and partner, Ivy. The book has great adventure, romance, longing and friendship. Loved it.
Bone Crossed and Silver Borne, Mercy Thompson books 4 and 5, Patricia Briggs. I just love Mercy, Samuel, Adam, and Stefan.
I am going to try to stay away from my typical genres and read something else. I am getting stuck in a rut. With June comes my reading of War and Peace. I'm suddenly not feeling it, but we will see.
