Hope you all had a great Easter break. We had a couple of gorgeous days Friday and Saturday and then Sunday…. very wet! But I had a delicious dark chocolate egg that was very yummy to chase away the wet!
In this last week I got out finally and did a small bit of gardening. I also visited a friend in hospital and got horribly lost on the way, in a very hilly area and narrow roads and even a one way that you guessed it, I might have had to turn around on! The problem was I discovered later that right at the beginning I took a wrong turn. Needless to say I did arrive at my destination, but somewhat stressed!
On Thursday it was the birthday of my sister who passed away last year. So a number of us gathered at the cemetery in the sunshine and toasted her with a small glass of wine and some memories. Then we gathered at the home of one of my other sisters for dinner. I have to say it was rather special.
I also read and worked on a second quilt for the first responders of the Christchurch shootings. And of course did some reading!
What I read last week:
The Things We Do For Love from my TBR was a Kristin Hannah worthy story that I really enjoyed. 183 Times a Year was about a mother and two teens and the rest of the family. I read it as a humour/funny challenge book…. but my sense of humour is different I guess. Still I will count it! This was a UK book, I think as a New Zealander I might have a different kind of sense of humour!
What I am reading now:
A review book…
One I bought last year from a local bookshop, I think the author is Australian. My excuse for buying – well it had a bookcase on the cover!
