some real good readin'

recently I have finished some really great books. I thought I would share them with you. I would consider them to be a very easy read and quite engrossing!

This book was wonderful. It was so hard to put down!

I am currently reading this non-fiction book... It is so very good!
I read another book by Ann Patchett; Bel Canto, it was a great read as well!

I am so glad I have gotten back into reading. I sort of took the winter off; maybe it was because I was so into my new hobby crocheting? Or maybe it was an overload from constant researching and putting together class lessons, and presentations.  To me there is nothing as fine as a warm summer day on the beach reading a great book!

It's been so long

I can't believe how long it's been since I have posted. I have been crazy busy, and still feel I have a thousand things to here is a brief photo update....
I bought this pillow on ETSY and I so Love it!  I do have some good thrifting goodies to share....I will post tomorrow.

I set up a facebook page for my Design Studio.....

My son has "graduated" from second grade. He will no longer be at Pleasant Hill School, off he goes to Wentworth School. They had a little stepping out ceremony. Ivan is in the center with the white T-shirt, and black shorts.

For the celebration, I made TONS of these!!!! Chocolate covered strawberries! always a hit!

Ivan had a Birthday Party.  Loads of 8 year old boys!!!!

and some girls!

Ollie had a great time!

We even went out to dinner to celebrate the boys birthday!  It was yummy!

Summer Solstice was lovely!

There has been lots of beach time...the weather has been amazing!

Lemonade stands were set up; with some super nice customers.

My son even went, where no one else dares...
in the jousting ring with Seamo!

We went to Clark's Trading Post In Lincoln, New Hampshire

and that is just a fraction of what was done in June!
