What a lazy weekend! It was just so nice outside, it was hard to be inside cleaning. I have managed to get a lot of reading done. I suddenly realized that I have a book that needs to be done in the next couple of days for a book club so I'm racing through that one. Fortunately, I'm really enjoying it.
Yesterday we went to a 90th birthday party for my mom's cousin, one of the sweetest ladies I know and so witty. When I was growing up, we lived in the same town as Margaret and her husband, Chet. His name was one of the first words I said. Sadly, you can imagine how "Chet" came out of the mouth of a toddler. My mom tells me Chet loved to have me say it again and again. I got to meet a cousin at the party that I have never met before. Where have they been hiding him? He is funny and warm and friendly and I'm feeling a little gyped not to have known him sooner.
Added to my TBR list this week:
Brooklyn: A Novel by Colm Toibin
A Suitable Boy by Vikram Seth
The Tricking of Freya by Christina Sunley
I'm adding them faster than I'm reading them. Do you have this problem?
