Y’all. How is it November 20th? IT IS THANKSGIVING WEEK WHERE DID THIS YEAR GO?
I had to stay in yesterday to do a bit of laundry. 5 loads and 1.5 books later, I still have laundry. How does this work? I DO NOT GET IT. Laundry sucks.
The book I read yesterday, THE BLUE GIRL by Laurie Foos, was marvelous. So mysterious and magical and why didn’t I read it last year? Geez me. I can be so daft. Read it people. Reminded me of Alice Hoffman. With moon pies.
The other book I started, and have read half of, is THE MOTION OF PUPPETS by Keith Donohue. I have loved Donohue for years; I even interviewed him once upon a time. (He is a delight and so kind.) Yet, I have only ever read THE STOLEN CHILD. I really have no idea what is wrong with me. I need to read all his books and reread TSC to boot. I think I’ll do that in audio, which I conveniently have. Yay me!
Today I need to: make two gluten free pie crusts for Thanksgiving, sort out the meals for the week, get my daughter from a sleepover, and DO MY BLOODY HOMEWORK. We’re redesigning currency in class, 3 bills, both sides, so I have 6 designs to make. I’m basically done with all 6 but I want to do some fine tuning. Then on to my last project! I have loved this class so much.
Off to finish my coffee and read more of THE MOTION OF PUPPETS. Happy Sunday all!
