Thanks for all the prayers for our vacation plans!! I spoke with the owner of the condo we are renting at Gulf Shores and she assured me that everything is just fine at the Beach!! I went to the library yesterday to get some books to take along.(All the ones I have downloaded on Kindle are not enough!!:)) I sometimes browse the Large Print section because they carry books not found in the regular shelves...and to be honest, at my age I am getting to like large print books. While looking at the large print offerings, I found a cute new series called A Queen Bees Quilt Series. It is a mystery series set in Kansas and The Queen Bee Quilters solve the mystery while making quilts. I started Murders on Elderberry Road last night and I am thoroughly enjoying it. This series is written by Sally Goldenbaum. I also found a Mignon Ballard book that I have not read that features Augusta Goodnight, an angel who helps solve mysteries. Normally I am not a big fan of such "fantasy" books but these are well written and you cannot help but love Augusta. My 31 organizing bag is packed to the brim with books to take on vacation. I will also be taking my L L Bean cross stitch bag filled with threads, needles and the fall sampler I am working on! My dear Hubs and I are hoping to just rest, relax and recharge. That said, I may not be blogging as often next week, but I hope to share some pictures of the beautiful Alabama Gulf.
Have a wonderful weekend!
