What are you reading?

My daughter belongs to a book club.  I often keep up with my reading by "tagging" along with her group and reading their monthly selection.  Their July book was good--thought provoking with an interesting plot and several excellent characters.  As with many modern authors, I noticed a couple of inconsistencies (where are the editors?), but very minor.  I recommend The Help as an easy, fun read.

Today . . .

It was a perfect day . . . hot, yes, but perfect otherwise.  The clouds covered the sun a little, fooling the mind  (well, my mind, anyway) and making me think it might be cooling off a little.  Alas, the imagination!!

Knit with my lovely Tuesday friends sans Debra, who had a death in the family . . . sad news.  Her mother is hurting over the loss, so keep Debra's family in your prayers.

I began knitting my cute Terrific Tote today.  I love felted bags because their texture is so solid.  I'm making mine from Riverstone bulky I purchased on sale.  I had plenty, and it's a yummy strawberry color.  Should be very pretty.

My friend, Cindy, at Jacob's Reward Farm was so gracious today and let me bring my sweet Rowan for a visit with some of the animals.  Judah is a little intimidating, although he's totally doing his job by guarding his flock, so we weren't able to get to the bigger sheep flock.  But the south side of the farm has beautiful alpaca, lovely Jacob sheep, and some of the cutest hens you ever saw.  Rowan got to pick her own fresh egg out of the several that were waiting for Cindy.  She talked about it non-stop all the way home.

Cindy also has had Farm Bags made up!  Awesome color and fantastic size.  As a self-proclaimed bag connoisseur, I can attest that this bag rocks.  Cindy also added a PayPal button to her blog so it's easy to maneuver around and purchase her bags.  Love (1,000,000)--so go get you some!!
