This long weekend is about reading and more reading! We did have some minor work around the cottage to do… moving sand around on the beach, pulling weeds and moving the dock. But essentially between tasks I am reading.
Currently I am reading “The Painters Daughter” by Julie Klassen. I am enjoying this fun piece of fiction. I did however start the weekend off with two non-fiction reads.
I found myself laughing and crying while reading “Sand in my Sandwich”. The author is a mother to three children, two of which have Aspergers. A form of high functioning Autism. Sarah is very real in her accounts of life in her home and I savoured every word.
I then read the “Letters to my daughters: The Art of being a Wife”. Just a few days ago I celebrated my 19 wedding anniversary and figured this would be interesting . I agreed with most of what the author was saying and even learned some things. This book is also very pretty with various water colour pictures amongst its pages. I highly suggest this book for any new bride or recently married gal.
But now… I am going back into the water…I can read as I try to warm up!
