So Much to Catch up On.

Let's start with June 3rd, on my way to Michigan I stopped to see my great nephew, Teddy.

 I caught him at work helping out his mom. It was also time for a bottle so I got to feed him. Love his cuddles.

June 5th my two granddaughters, Megan Kline and Jime Bejas graduated high school.
This is Megan before graduation...her plans are to attend CMU and study neuro science. Long term goal is to be a neuro surgeon.

Here are my two girls together. Jime left on June 27th to return to her family in Argentina. We miss her already. She has to finish her high school down there, then she can go on to her future.

I also got to spend time with Mike.
At graduation and her open house the following weekend.
This was before graduation but we had some 'us' time, too.

Then it was on to the Ann Arbor Book Fest with Blue Harvest Creative.
It was awesome. Hot so I drank a lot of water. We sold 51 books in five hours. Met a lot of people and did some great networking. Fantastic success.

I have returned home to plants gone wild.
My money tree needed a new pot. While you can't tell it is three feet high.

I have also learned Next Steps Johns Island, the organization I volunteer for is no longer having fund raisers. Too much apathy here on the island. Sad, when we are trying to bring the islands together as a community. But, there are big things still happening.

Time to find my routine and get back to being busy. Office room paint has been purchased and is ready to go. Accent wall paint in my dining room has been purchased and is ready to go. Mirrors are ready to go up so I can unpack tea pots. It's starting to come together.

Oh, the first addition to the fairy garden has gone out.

Lily of the valley have been planted and well watered as it has rained the past two days. Not complaining, just wish the humidity would go away.

Hope y'all are well.

Book Review Time

I was lucky enough to receive this book from C. Hope Clark for review purposes. Once again she has created lovable characters while bringing in the rich history of the low country.

Edisto Island is south of me, I've not been to Edisto, but believe it will be worth a trip. I love Calllie Lawton as a character. She is flawed and fighting her own demons while at the same time taking on the demons in Edisto. Her former years as a police officer, show she has not lost her touch. She knows how to root out the bad guys.

The twists and turns this story takes will keep you reading well into the wee hours. The parallels to Callie's personal life, make you second guess. I was unable to figure it out until Ms. Clark was ready to divulge the culprit. I was surprised it was not someone I had even suspected.

The question is will she nab him in time to save her friend?

A remarkable read and should be on your summer reading list.

It's a Dreary Sunday: Day 7

Morning pages were done with distractions today. Not a good omen. Especially since I woke up tired to rain. According to the news last ni...
