It's Tuesday and my books arrived!!!!

This was the sunrise coming up early this morning....clouds today but no rain until Thanksgiving which I am grateful for as I have to drive to Mountain Home tomorrow for my last doctor appointment before Winter. 

 "You're leaving me?  Alone?   With all these animals I have been harassing for months?  Uh oh....I might be in big trouble!"
 But on a brighter note...my books finally came yesterday....it was SO hard to chose which one to read first
 I might have to read this one on the sly too as I could use some miracles in the financial department! LOL!  I just found out I need new tires at $600-$800 for 4.  Last time I got them it was $400 for 4.  Everything's going up except my income!
 Isn't this the cutest cover?  I'm a sucker for a good cover.
 I finally narrowed it down to this one and the next one................
 and I chose to start this one........I couldn't wait either so I grabbed a water and went outside and sat in the sun and read for a bit......it doesn't wast time either....the story takes off immediately...quite a bit different than Kate Morton's long tales but I love her books too.  It is cold here at night and we've had several hard frosts now but during the day it heats up to the high 50's or low 60's...my perfect temps!
 I'm still reading these 2...not sure if I mentioned Extra Virgin last week?  It's my non-fiction of books I own and it's about 2 sisters who buy an old ruin of a house in Italy and fix it up but it's much more than that as she talks of the people and the regional differences and it's entertaining so far except the Italian words she throws in as if you know Italian.  It takes place in 1983...Annie Hawes is one of the sisters and I'm guessing that might actually be a picture of the house they fixed up.  I love the red metal roof but I'm curious about the rocks on it...hmmm.....I'll let you know if I find out.  
 Still slogging through this one and hardly touched it this week but I'm on page 289 now....
 I thought I'd be done with this audio by now and I'm close but "no cigar".....this is truly enjoyable and Richard Thomas does an excellent job!  It is a "performance" by Mr. Thomas...not a "reading"...big difference!
 Well, that's all for now!  Happy Trails!

  1. I recently bought the Foxglove and Hedgehogs book, it looks darling, doesn't it? I also have Extra Virgin which I have not read yet but look forward too. We have some similar reading tastes.

  2. looks like you will have books for awhile! Tires are very expensive, I needed some and they were 600 plus tax but there was supposed to be a $100 rebate that we are waiting on. Shop around! Gas is cheaper for now anyway, probably not for long. :)

    1. I go to the local station here so I'll probably buy what they have as they are so nice. They check my oil and tire pressure whenever I stop in and never charge. They're always there for emergencies...even helped my daughter with her car when she was down here one time. Very honest and friendly and ready at the drop of a hat. They're not gougers so I can't imagine getting a much better deal anywhere else unless there is a rebate on the tires they carry. I'll ask I won't be getting them anytime soon though... they gave me 3 months. LOL!

  4. Gosh, so many books. I bought some when we were in Dubai a couple of weeks ago. I can only read one book at a time or I get confused. Hope you had a good Thanksgiving. Happy holidays!

  5. I can't remember if I read Where the Red Fern Grows. I would totally audiobook it. Glad you have some good reading lined up.
