Lazy .....




Hope everyone is having a good week. It's still hot and humid here in Central Virginia - too hot to do anything that requires lots of physical activity. I've been relaxing, reading and eating. I've gained a couple of pounds - probably from those Drumstick ice cream cones I've been eating every afternoon. (Sigh) I guess I'll have to cut back on them.

I finished reading J. K. Rowling's book "The Cuckoo's Calling". It was well written and had good character development. I did find it to be a bit slow moving at times. The main characters are very likable and I would like to see them in more books. If you like detective stories you will probably enjoy this book. I'm currently reading the second book of the Joe Grey series by Shirley Rousseau Murphy - "Cat Under Fire". These are mysteries with talking cats as the main characters. They are entertaining will appeal to mystery and cat lovers. I'm also reading "At Home: A Short History of Private Life" by Bill Bryson. I've enjoyed several of his books.

Summer is going by too fast! Seems all the stores are full of back to school items. I wouldn't be surprised to see Christmas items before long. They do tend to rush the seasons.

I'll leave you with a few pictures of the cats ...

Same here in Tennessee...too hot to do much outside, thus the Kindle Fire is blazing here as well. I have over 200 books already on my Kindle, so I best get busy. School begins on 8-8 here and it will be downhill to winter from there. Have a great Thursday.

This summer is flying by. Glad you have such good books to keep you occupied.
Had to laugh at the kitties. They do know how to get comfortable.

Mazie Grace has just the right colors for camaflage. No wonder she is such a great hunter. Thanks for the tip on the J K Rowling book. Dianne
