Good morning! It's a nice warm and sunny one here on the plains, and I've already been out to buy tomato cages. I'm cautiously optimistic about this year's garden. Most of what I'm growing is tomatoes, peppers and herbs. Oh, and some flying saucer gourds because...well, they sounded cool ;) and like something a 5 year old would be excited about harvesting! So those will be Audrey's.
Enjoyed a nice little Swedish breakfast this morning with some Lingonberry preserves that I got in Lindsborg and thought I'd show off Audrey's little dala horse with her name painted on it. They make these cute little hand painted wooden horses in-house at Hemslojd-- Audrey absolutely loved it and it was her favorite thing she got while we were there in town.
Also, I have been deep in the novels of Kate Morton and got the last available book of hers yesterday. I can't wait to get lost in The House at Riverton, but dread coming to the end! I finished up The Distant Hours last week and I tried to make it last, but it's difficult. They're just too good! I've heard she has a new one coming out in October, so I know I'll have to find some other good books to bide my time. I've read some reviews of Susanna Kearsley online, and her work sounds similar and equally old-timey so I'm thinking I might try her next. Have any of you read her novels? What did you think? Or do you have any book recommendations for me?
Well, time to get a little painting done! Thanks for coming to visit me today :) Always nice to have you stop by....~
