I Love to Read

Top of the day to you!

I hope you had a sensational weekend whatever it is you did. I had a very relaxing Sunday after my fun junk hunt I talked about on Saturday. I finished a scrapbook page that I was working on yesterday.


I finally created a page about reading. I LOVE to read and I almost always have a book in progress. I just finished reading 'The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks' and it great! It's about how one women's cells helped scientists discover new treatments, vaccines and cures. I'm now reading, 'House Rules' about a teenage boy with Asperger's. So far so good.


This page was so much fun to put together with so many different products and manufacturers. I listed them at the end of the post because there are so many.


I went a little crazy with the hearts!


On the reverse side of the page I attached a list of books I've read in recent months. I think it'll be fun to look back at this list one day. Which books will I still remember?


Summer is arriving in our neck of the woods today with a forecast of 93 degrees! It's supposed to be in the 90s all week! Time for watermelon, tank tops and flip flops! Enjoy!

Ca-ute page, Kathy! Love that photo! All the hearts are really adorable, too.
Sure has turned on the heat all of a sudden, huh? Poor Big Girl doesn't get to go for car rides anymore. It's going to be one long summer for her.
