That's what I get for letting my true Northwest colors show: wishing for rain after 16 straight days of sunshine and weather too hot for me. It sprinkled one day, gave us a tremendous windstorm another, went back to being hot and sunny and I came down with strep throat.
Been sleeping 20 hours a day for three days and I still feel wiped out with a sore throat and my right eye glued shut with green gunk. I'm hoping this will pass before too long.
But before I went down with the crud, I read two fantastic books and ordered two more, so I thought I'd pass me recommendations along to those of you who are looking for some summer reading:
1. The Help, by Kathryn Stockett. Fiction, based in post Civil War Mississippi, this book is amazing! Couldn't put it down and I didn't want it to end. Get it today!
2. The Prince of Frogtown, by Rick Bragg. Apparently (where have I been) he's written two other memoirs, but I found this one at the library (boo hoo, I have to take it back!). This book is GORGEOUS! The writing is magnificent and I found myself re-reading passages over and over again just to taste the language he uses.
I have ordered two Buddhist books for the summer and can't wait to get into them, when I can keep my eyes open for more than a half hour. I'll keep you posted on them. Gotta go rest now.
