Package Surprise!

Robyn at Daisy Quilts held a PIF and I was one of her participants! My package came yesterday! I am very excited to have been in Robyn's PIF and was thrilled when it arrived. I had to dig right in of course! And I will just say that I love it!

It arrived!

Oh, pretty!

A book bag! This will get LOTS of use!

Chocolate, a bookmark, card and DUQ magazine!

Last night it stormed pretty bad at our house before and after practice. Luckily we didn't lose power, which tends to happen, even on sunny days. Last night during one of the breaks I snapped this picture of CC, he was laying under the chair almost as if he was hiding and this picture reminds me of him looking out as if on stake out.

Quilting wise, not much has been happening. With the fair last week and starting work this week I haven't gotten anything done. I may work on my stripped one tonight some, Rich was nice enough to take the boys to practice. I had a few shots (TB and Tetnus) yesterday for work and really feel bad today! But things are going smoothly and I am learning. Next week I will be by myself in my classroom and the day after labor day school starts for the preschool. I am looking forward to it, I have to get planning.

Book wise, I have sort of been on a reading slump. I did read Brad Thor's newest, The Apostle, which was good and I read Meg Cabot's Queen of Babble (one day read, very quick and light!). Now I am reading The German Woman by Paul Griner. It was on our libraries New Fiction list and sounded good so I picked it up. Its really not bad. Its set during the WW's and really moves fairly quickly. Next up will be A Room With A View for bookclub next Monday.
Hope everyone is having a great week!

You take care now and look after you!
Feel better soon and hope you can take it a bit easy today.
You must tell me what you're up to... I have no idea...mmm... I've got some reading to catch up on I think.
Take care Sara,
hugs Robyn xx

looks like you won some nice things! enjoy them
I have been reading a lot too lately - I am going through my Patricia Cornwell "Scarpetta" series from the first to the last - interesting how for awhile she was aging and then all of a sudden in the last 5 books or so she is 10 years or so younger than she is supposed to be! LOL

Hey Sara! Good luck with the new job! Problem is I can't remember what the new job is?!? If you can do a bit of quilting each day for stress relief :^) Hopefully the effects of the shots (sore arm etc) will wear off real soon.

Oh, I love that package! how interesting is that DUQ magazine?

I have never read any of Brad Thor, one of your favorites? Aren't reading books like tasting chocolates? there are no bad ones!

I love the bookbag you won. With you being such a prolific reader, I'm sure it will get lots of use!
