Literary Monday.

“From that time on, the world was hers for the reading.  She would never be lonely again, never miss the lack of intimate friends.  Books became her friends and there was one for every mood.”

Who would not want to spend time reading here?  DH and I spent a bit of time on Sunday sorting out our books and they look SO much better now!!  We were due to be gardening but such was our luck that it rained a lot!!  Saturday I did manage to get the garden furniture painted whilst they were all out!!  Tomorrow is supposed to be lovely and sunny so hopefully I can get a few outside jobs done then.  I will show you some pictures tomorrow.

I am hoping that next weekend will not be so busy!  It seems like the last few weekends it has been non-stop.  I am still trying to get some quilting done!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Although when the weather is nice it is a shame not to be outside! 

We  had dinner with our friends from the village on Friday evening and it was so nice to spend time with them and we had a takeaway so no stress of cooking a meal either, especially after the busy week.

I had a lovely surprise this morning as I was invited to lunch with Girlfried and her Mom today.  We had a lovely time and again it was so nice to be out doing something normal even if we still had to wear masks until we were sat down!!! 

I hope you lovely lot had a good weekend whatever you were up to and a good week to come. 

Hugs & Love, Susie xx

    Visiting #3 daughter…poured rain this morning (some flooding issues nearby) with insane lightning! It does not rain like that back home! So glad you are getting the inside jobs done – when the weather is nice, you won’t have any inside jobs left to call to you when you are outside doing those jobs! Can’t wait to see what you are quilting!

    I don’t think I’ve ever read A Tree Grows in Brooklyn. How sad is that! Love the quote! Having meals with our friends is always so much fun. Hey, Treacle. Mom says that your blog header photo needs to have you in it!
