First Saturday off

I'm feeling a little afloat out here with no school work to do.  It's my first real summer vacation in six+ years, and I'm not sure what the heck to do with myself.  And it's finally hot here.  So what does a New England family do when it's too hot to really be outside, and there's no homework demanding my attention?  Read super-silly books while the husband plays Call of Duty, of course. 

Last night's book was Whales on Stilts!, and it' hilarious.  Alex kept making me read more and more chapters until I finally had to call it around 10 pm.  To be fair, the battery in the clock stopped around 8:45 pm so we weren't aware it was that late.  I think we're going to finish this book today. 

I've been reading a lot myself.  I just finished Pines, which is the first book in the series that the current show Wayward Pines is based on.  And it's such a good book that I couldn't put it down.  I'm reading another book by the same author now called Run.  I also have a copy of East of Eden to get through and I'm kind of excited about it.  The sample I read on my Kindle was very good.  As you can see, I'm just as scattered with my books as I am with my knitting.  Always 3-5 going, all the time.  I'm super pumped about it.

Another exciting thing about new found freedom is that I can finally organize my dining room, finish building my IKEA furniture, and cook dinner.  I might even be able to start baking bread again!  I had to give that up about 18-months ago when I went back to work full time.  Looking forward to my first loaf of sour dough.
