  1. 😂😂 these are horrifyingly bad. Thanks for the laugh!
  2. I've used the Australian Gold mineral sunscreen linked above and love it. I usually buy it from amazon for around $12-13 but have found it at Walgreens for $15. Hope you find something that works!
  3. I read this last year (I think) - sweet, gentle coming of age read. I really liked it.
  4. He went to bed and bumped his head and he couldn't get up in the morning. 😊 I love the old childhood rhymes! Daughter of the Saints: Growing Up in Polygamy by Dorothy Allred Solomon. Well-written and heartfelt, this is one of the best books on the subject that I've read. Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens. I know I'm super late to this party but am loving this story. I'm almost done with it so wanted to include it in this week's post.
  5. Hi everyone! I managed to finish a book a few days ago - Five Windows by D.E. Stevenson. Nice, gentle coming of age story about a young man who grows up in a small village in Scotland then moves to London. I have a couple books from the library and even bought a book a couple weeks ago - I've been really trying to not buy any more. The Stranger Beside Me by Ann Rule is the book and I've checked it out from the library a couple of times but never manage to finish it. I read about 50 pages or so then have to put it aside as all the serial killer stuff gets me down but it is also so fascinating. @Negin I listened to Steve Martin's book on audio and it was so good! Hope you enjoy the read. @Kareni Thank you for the Susanna Clark link - it made me remember how much I enjoy her writing. I broke my No Buy rule again just now and bought a used copy of The Ladies of Grace Adeiu. (It was only $5 incl shipping!) @Robin M Love your May 4th pic! 😂 My daughters and I watched "Revenge of the Sith" on the 4th. I normally enjoy Star Wars movies but this one was pretty bad. That's great news about your loan - what a relief!
  6. She's beautiful! Glad to hear you are enjoying your new(ish) family member. 😊
  7. Subscriptions to The New York Times, Washington Post, and the New Yorker that I read almost every day and sometimes I'll take a look at the Atlantic.
  8. Hi everyone! Just finished the first in a series - The Surgeon (Rizzoli & Isles #1) by Tess Gerritsen. It follows a couple of detectives as they go after a serial killer who tortures his victims before killing them. It was so very bloody and much too descriptive for my liking. I ended up skimming about the last third of the novel just to see who the killer was. I won't be reading any more of this series. As I organize my garage (need to get it done before it becomes unbearably hot here), I have been listening to Stephen King read his novella, Elevation. It's about a man who keeps losing weight yet doesn't look any different. I'm enjoying it so far. @Kareni I hope your dh is feeling better!
  9. I know these are a little pricey but the quality is outstanding and the fit is really great. Also - they usually have pockets! Boden Women's Summer Dresses I think they are also having 15% off right now.
  10. Freddy Fender - I love My Rancho Grande perhaps? It's pretty catchy 😊 I Love My Rancho Grande
  11. Happy Easter! Read two short books this week - The Small Hand and Dolly both by Susan Hill. While I enjoyed both of them, I think Dolly was better as it had a more satisfying ending. @Kareni happy to hear your news!
  12. We streamed it at my daughter's house a week ago - and we all really liked it. It does have a couple scenes that made me go "huh?" but overall I thought it was good. Emma comes across as snobby and thoughtless and I think that is how Jane Austen wrote her. She is too likable in the previous versions! I really loved the costuming and the ladies all had their hair put up properly, too!! There were six of us watching it so the $20 ended up being less than $4 each, so it was cheaper than actually going to the theater. I want to watch it again but am going to wait until it can be rented for less.
  13. Loved these - especially the Needlework - thank you Kareni!
  14. No but they are on my list! My library had The Man in the Picture so I'm going to try that one next.
