Books and Stitching

It's raining today...again. While I am grateful that we were not in the path of Ike I am tired of rain, and cranky customers at work who are tired of the rain. I'm not looking forward to heading out to work soon.

This past week I have been stitching a little. I found a freebie called Irish Coffee at The Sampler Girl's page which I thought was so funny. I decided I had to have that phrase stitched on a huck towel for my kitchen. The entire thing wouldn't fit but I stitched the words and the coffee pot and a few shamrocks. While I stitched on the towel I finished listening to an audio book The Good Husband of Zebra Drive by Alexander McCall Smith. I started reading this book about a year ago at my mother's house. We were talking on the phone recently about the newest release in this series and remembered that neither one of us had finished it so we both dug it out.

I was still in the mood to listen to audio books yesterday so I started Lean Mean 13 by Janet Evanovich and pulled out Brittercup's Harvest Hunt to work on. DH loves this series too so he sat with me and played Pokeman on the DS while I stitched. I remember reading some bad reviews about book 13 when it came out but we are both enjoying it. It's always a riot when Stephanie does something evil to Joyce and this book's stunt tops bringing Bob to do his business in her front yard.

Tonight I have to put the finishing touches on my Prairie Schooler exchange and get it mailed in the morning.
