It's hard to believe that the local K-12 public schools are still in session until next week. It has felt like summer here for weeks now. I'm in favor of schools dismissing after Memorial Day, especially here in the South.
Here's some random info as we head into the weekend -- yaaaayy!!
I knit ONE ROW of the Theresa Gaffey Stole this week (that's 360 stitches, though). At this rate, I'll be 90 before it's finished! My knitting is really boring now so there's not much to share.
I love reading Dorothea Benton Frank's books in the summer. I'm currently reading on my Kindle her latest that came out in paperback, The Hurricane Sisters, and I pre-ordered her new one, All the Single Ladies, which comes out June 9.
I've downloaded the first chapters of quite a few other summer books, and I probably won't be able to get to them all. Another author I like is Sarah Pekkanen, and her new one is Things You Won't Say. I follow both of these authors on Twitter, and I've found that authors write interesting tweets!
I usually like to read at least one memoir over the summer, but I haven't identified that one yet. If someone has a suggestion, please share. I tend to like to read about contemporary people or celebrities. Why, I could not tell you!
My family and a few close friends are gathering at our house one evening this coming week so they can all take an online Weather course from the National Weather Service to become Official Storm Spotters. It's free, and they are all weather geeks. They have each come up with a weather nickname, and the event is instigated by Stormin Steve and Doppler Dave. I'm just going to be the weather snack girl, ha!
Have a great weekend, everyone! I'd love to hear what you are knitting/reading this weekend and any recommendations you have for summer books.
