I'm sorry that I haven't been here all week. I've been rearranging my schedule so I could have more time to quilt. I have a quilt for my oldest son that I've been working on for well over a year. I would really like to get it finished. So the quilting has started to progress at a comfortable speed with my change in schedule. Now I just have to work my blogging back into my schedule. ☺
Of course, I'm still reading. That is something that always fits into my day. I just finished reading Sky Burial by Xinran. It is the story of a young couple in the early days of communist China. They are both doctors. The husband has to go into Tibet with a military unit three weeks after they are married. A few weeks later the wife receives news of her husband's death, but no one knows the details. She sets out on a thirty search in Tibet to find him or news of him. This is an amazing love story.
I am now reading Twelve Years a Slave. You have perhaps seen the movie posters for it. A free black man living in the North is captured and sold as a slave in the South. Twelve years later friends finally learn where he is and are able to affect his rescue. Again another amazing story.
On to my children:
15-year-old daughter - Embassy by S. Alex Martin. You can read her review of the book on Goodreads. Her review has made me want to read this book.
13-year-old son - The Deadly Curse of Toko-Rey by Frank Peretti. This is a volume in the Cooper Kids adventure series.
11-year-old son - Escape from the Island of Aquarius by Frank Peretti. Another story from the Cooper Kids Adventures
10-year-old daughter - Princess Academy by Shannon Hale
8-year-old daughter - Emma All Stirred Up by Coco Simon. This is one of the "Cupcake Diaries". My ten-year-old received some for her birthday, and they've been a hit ever since.
6-year-old son - Curious George
3-year-old son - He has been on a huge ABC Bunny kick. He wants it read all the time.
In case you missed it when I posted this before, here is a YouTube video of someone singing the song.
Now it's your turn to share what you're reading.
