Oh! Last night as I was writing my list for today's potential accomplishments (keyword "potential") I also began jotting a rough summer reading list! I'm including a few re~reads as well, I think Tolkien's "Lord of the Rings" is about enough to count as three or four. I'll also be raiding Brenda's list and read some new (to me) fiction...and also watch some of those British mysteries she mentions (thanks Brenda)!!! If you have any favorite reads or movies to recommend for my list they are more than warmly welcome!

I'm off now to start dinner for the beloveds.

More soon my kind friends.

Love and good thoughts from Tracey and Family.

"Wren Bay" is at the very TOP of my reading list sweet Clarice!!!

I'm having a day of painting...vacuuming...laundry and furniture re~arranging. The yummy part arrives when I'm alllll done and can sit back with a cozy cup of tea and survey the evidence of my labor!!! ;)

Thank you very much! :)

I need to finish a biography that I didn't get to in May. Otherwise, I tend to go for very light reading in the summer months.

Hi Tracey! Have you read Eat Pray Love, by Elizabeth Gilbert? That book really spoke to me, and I wonder if you wouldn't love it as much as I did.

If you haven't read it yet, read it quick before the movie comes out soon. The movies are never as good as the books :)

Thanks so much for the recommendation Ellen! No, I haven't read it but have heard some very good things about it. I'll have to swing over to amazon and put it on my list!
