Of Bees and Mist

The newest selection for the Barnes and Noble First Look Book Club Of Bees and Mist: I Got a First Look at Barnes & Noble. Get Your Copy Now

In his first novel, Erick Setiawan casts a spell over the reader with words and descriptions that draw you into the story and won't allow you to forget the people you meet. Although it took me a couple of chapters to be drawn in, I soon became enthralled with the characters and their lives.

This magical novel tells the story of a young woman and follows her as she learns to deal with the negativity and deception that surround her. It is the story of two very different families who are joined through marriage and how they really aren't that different in the end.

This book is one that I would recommend to imaginative readers who likes to escape from the reality of daily life.

Happy Birthday Marie and June Sock

Last night I finished my June socks, and I finished them in just nine days. They look great and I will post a picture and more details about my latest project as soon as I get my computer back from the computer fixing shop. They were the June selection for the Ravelry group, Thrifty Knitter's Sock Group.

Today I went to lunch with my very friends, Mary Jo and Marie. I miss not living in the same neighborhood and seeing them on a daily basis. I think we all miss the "old" neighborhood. Of course, the old neighborhood doesn't exist any longer, so they will all have to move here.
