Who wants to make 35 cozies when it is 100 degrees out? Not me! Yesterday was so hot. I think the heat hit me hard because we had such a mild summer. Anyway I didn't feel like doing much of anything in the heat. Today should be a little cooler so I need to get some work done.
I am making 35 coffee cozies out of receiving blankets for a baby shower in November.

I liked Bloodroot but the subject just seemed so bleak. characters with rotten teeth living out in the middle of no where. I could tell if I kept reading that book I was going to get in a depressed funk. So I stopped...Its not like me to start and not finish a book 2 in a row has never happened. I need a novel to distract me from my everyday life! So I am reading Everyone worth Knowing By Lauren Weisberger. I want to read her new book Last Night at the Chateu Marmont but its not at the library yet.

Hooray for Fall. Unfortunately we are having a heat wave this weekend. It's really going to feel like summer tonight at Petco Park when we go see the Padres play.

I haven't been doing a ton of sewing lately...However I have been doing a lot of reading. A book I finished not to long ago is One Day by David Nicolls. I kept hearing really good reviews about this book that perked my interest. Its already on paperback so you don't have to lug around a heavy hardcover which is a plus. I thought it was a wonderful book and a great idea. The story revolves around college grads Emma & Dexter and what happens for the next 20 years on July 15. Brilliant! I didn't want this book to end!
The book I'm currently reading is I See You Everywhere By Julia Glass. I got this book from the library because I have read her other novel Four Junes and I liked that one. This book is about 2 not very likable sisters that don't really like each other. So what is there to like about this book? Not much...I know sister relationships can be complicated. This book isn't a page turner. I'm trying to hurry through it so I can start Bloodroot By Amy Greene. This book has gotten a lot of praise. This is a debut novel that takes place in Appalachian mountains.

Just came across this picture...I can't believe Dr. G was ever that small! The kids are still mulling over what they want to be for Halloween.

On a more serious note today in 9/11. It is crazy it has been 9 years. It still seems very fresh in my mind. Not to long ago I watched the movie Return to Me. I had no idea the plot revolved around 9/11. After that movie I was in a bit of a funk for a few days. However today I plan on being a wonderful person and trying to do small acts of kindness in honor of Americans who left their homes in the morning and never returned.
