Its that time again

Time to start thinking about my upcoming week. This has been a busy weekend it seems but I couldn't tell you what we have done. I just know that I am tired. SleepyI am going to grab my book and take a little rest here in a few minutes before thinking about dinner. Tonight was suppose to be roast but didn't lay it out of the freezer. I decided we have things in the fridge that we need to eat up, and since it's just Michael and Tori and I, not going to make a big deal about it.

Did you all do anything fun for Father's Day? I called my dad this morning and wished him Happy Fathers Day and he was still in bed. I couldn't believe that. We had a nice little chat, and I told him that his fathers day present wasn't going to come to the house, it was waiting for him at the golf course. His next three games are on us. So he seemed pleased with that.

Clean-and-Fresh-Print-I10109528 I have time today doing wash, didn't have alot to do. Just a couple of small loads, so that didn't take a long time. Michael went outside and has sorting through things in my potting shed. Believe me it needed it. We both have been on this cleaning kick lately. Don't get me started.

I picked me up two new books last night. I started "A Sister's Secret" and I know I will enjoy it.

From Publishers Weekly
This first installment in the Sisters of Holmes County series is more of the same for Brunstetter, who has more than a million of her Amish-themed novels in print. Grace Hostettler is settling down to a conventional Amish life and marriage to a kind young man in her community. But when a stranger from her past shows up, she's forced to acknowledge the "English" life and family she left behind during her rowdy adolescent rumschpringe period. Will her new husband accept her when the secret of her past comes tumbling out? Unfortunately, technical problems mar this novel about second chances. Grace is a weak and uninteresting protagonist who is more an observer of the action than its leading lady. While Brunstetter's fans will no doubt appreciate the novel's loving—even hagiographic—portrait of the Amish, the Amish characters' dialogue often feels stilted and unnatural, impeded rather than enhanced by awkward sprinklings of Pennsylvania Dutch. Stock English characters, such as an intrusive reporter and an aggressive developer who wants to buy up Amish land, add little to the story. (July)

Product Description
Grace is the oldest sister in the Hostettler family. Having put her rumschpringe (running around years) behind her, she has returned to Holmes County, joined the Amish church, and begun a new life. For the past four years, everything has been going fairly well, until the day she sees an English man who knows enough of her past to jeopardize her future. Will Gary Walker's passion for Grace destroy more than one life? Amish man Cleon Schrock is planning to marry Grace, but ignorant of her past. Will love and faith triumph over shame and deception in Holmes County?

Hi! Love all your little ladies and graphics for cleaning! Hope you both had a nice Father's Day. Isn't it just perfect weather now? I can't believe I'm going to leave this and go to Florida on Friday to melt! But I can't wait. Have a good Monday. Hugs
