And Abi was nosing them all to the floor. Little scamp.
Look what I did to the poor girl's fur over her eyes during the sticky glue debacle. It's like someone cut her bangs all the way up to her forehead.
Did you ever do that as a kid? Think you're fixing them and keep right on cutting until you can cut no more?
Charlie is chewing on her because she's aggravated him.
She's looking at him as if to say: "You dare to chew on my butt?"
This is what I did with the vintage linens. Back in the kitchen window they're hanging. I missed them there.
I picked a hot day to iron. But it's done. Looks a bit crooked. Oh well, part of the charm I guess. (You know good and well I'll be in there with the step ladder as soon as I've finished this and start straightening them.)
Like I could actually stand to see something crooked! What a joke!
Guess which book I chose to read last night? The Memory Box.
Never heard of this author. Seems this was her first book in 2014. Eva Lesko Natiello. I'll be looking for her work. For sure.
I started reading this book and I finished three quarters of it. I did not want to stop but my eyelids were droopy and the dogs were fussing to go to bed.
This woman can sure tell a story. I was reading so fast to see what would happen on the next page. Yet, I didn't want it to end either. What a predicament.
Here's what it says on Amazon about it, just a snippet...
NEW YORK TIMES and USA TODAY Bestseller
A psychological thriller with twists & turns until the last page.
What if you Googled yourself & found something shocking?
In this gripping page turner suspense, Caroline Thompson Googles herself and discovers the shocking details of a past she doesn't remember.
You know, with Google out there, it can be a scary world. No longer can secrets lie dusty and unearthed in the darkest of places.
This woman is terrorized by a past she does not even remember.
Can you imagine Googling yourself and finding your sister's obituary, and you didn't know she was dead?
Oh. My. Word.
This scenario started when one of the other gossipy mothers started Googling people and finding out ways to embarrass them with their past.
So Caroline decides to Google herself one very ordinary day while the children are at school.
At first she finds mundane stuff about things she's done for the school or community.
But then she Googles herself with her maiden name.
She learns that she had a hysterectomy at a very young age due to health problems.
But she has two daughters. So where did they come from???
She's dashing around trying to find out what she might have done, trying not to look crazed as a rabid bat in front of her husband (which does not work), while she tries to figure out why she got left in the twilight zone.
I still don't have the answers yet. But you can bet I'll be in bed pretty early after my supper and shower to find out what on earth happened to this young woman.
Could she have stolen her children? What kind of person am I, she asks herself.
Then she digs around trying to find baby books for her elementary school age daughters, to make sure they're actually her daughters. And instead she finds a box with all kinds of creepy information inside.
If you love a thriller, then find a copy of this book to read.
If you're so inclined, poor yourself a glass of wine and start delving into the nightmare this poor woman suddenly finds herself in. For me it might be hot chocolate if the weather cools off tonight.
I know you can't help yourself. You're probably already Googling yourself with bated breath!
Or maybe you're reaching for a glass to pour just a bit of wine first in case you find something scandalous that you didn't know was out there...
Be careful what you search for.
