|Dreaming about lazy summer days.|
Yesterday a high school friend, Jean, and her partner stopped by for an overnight visit. It was a reminder about the preciousness of friendships and I should be better at nourishing them. Thanks, Jean. I love you.
Today the leadership team at church competes in a Bible Jeopardy against the Children's Sunday School classes. Every year the adults lose. Later in the day we serve lunch to the homeless population in our area.
- Sabriel by Garth Nix. One of my colleagues always raves about this book and the series. I am enjoying it.
- Day After Night by Anita Diamant---Set in Palestine in 1945 before Israel was a country. It is interesting and so well-written. This is the perfect format for this book with all of the Hebrew words and names.
Book finished this week:
- Me and Earl, and the Dying Girl by Jesse Andrews. See the opening paragraph on my Book Beginnings post from Friday. It was a lot more poignant than I anticipated.
- Iron King by Julie Kagawa. I finally finished this opening book of the Iron Fey fantasy series.
- The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. This was the second time listening to this audiobook.
- The Miles Between by Mary Pearson.
I'm praying for:Patt and his wife. Cancer treatments keep him low on energy with pain and breathing problems. It is hard to be the spouse at times like these.
Around the house: The librarians from the district were here for a social and the weather cooperated. We had smoked salmon, shrimp, and lots of other yummy snacks.
From the kitchen: Dan (my daughter's fiance) and I taste tested a red wine we're considering for the wedding, Renegade Red. It's motto: "Glasses, we don't need no stinking glasses."
