"Some grief is good grief...just ask Charlie Brown..." I just heard Michael Scott of the Office say that. I liked it. If you look really close at the picture you can see the arm and back of my porch chair...

I actually rode my bike for 10 days in a row which is huge for me...the reason I did it was because of a book on i-pod. Belong to Me by Marisa de los Santos. I could not stop riding! So smart, so human and such a wonderful read. I read Love Walked In also by Santos that was the beginning of this story a year ago. I do not know anyone else who reads like I do so I guess I am a one person book club...kind of sad.

I have been reading a lot this last couple of weeks and I picked up some good ones at the library...the very best one was Julia's Chocolates by Cathy Lamb! Irreverent, tragic, funny and so human. I hated to finish it, to let go of the characters. I want more of this author. I've been listening to the Jane Austin Book Club by Karen Joy Fowler while I force myself to ride my bike every morning...it is working. The Sunday Wife by Cassandra King. Good but tragic. Harder to read than her other much funnier stuff but there is hope out there...

My neighbor called and said meet me at the fence (good fences make good neighbors). She brought this loaf of bread made with basil from her garden, still warm from the oven. But there is more to like here, my husband got to it first and saved me the heel...my favorite part.
