Monday Meme's, January 17th


This is Monday and time to share our Blues with the Smiling Sally meme Blue Monday.
We got this at the Festival of the Little Hills in St. Charles Missouri, it has a blue background and a lace piece with our last name embroidered in blue. It hangs in our great room.The Festival runs all weekend long and is a great experience for people who love to go to Craft fairs or festivals. Click here for more info..


Another meme that I participate on Mondays, is at Sheila's blog,
Book Journey and "What are you reading?" This week I am reading "My Name is Memory" by Ann Brashares, author
of the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants series.




From Publishers Weekly
A romance that stretches across centuries and past lives constitutes the core of Brashares's varied second adult novel, the first in a planned trilogy. The story is primarily that of Daniel, as, in the present, he pursues Lucy (whom he knows as Sophia in a previous life) and attempts to persuade her of their history and destiny, but his passion initially and understandably scares her off. He disappears, presumed dead, but Lucy, unable to forget him, investigates his claims of their history until she discovers the truth. Meanwhile, Daniel takes readers on a tour of romantic near-misses, from sixth-century Africa through eighth-century Turkey to WWI. The story moves slowly and predictably, though when a plot finally materializes, Brashares (Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants) manages some satisfying momentum, even if the story begins to feel like it's borrowed from a James Patterson novel. Brashares's insights into human nature, meanwhile, should appeal to readers who enjoyed The Time-Traveler's Wife, but can appreciate a Nicholas Sparks-esque sensibility. (June)

I enjoyed The Sisterhood - I hope you enjoy this one as well! It sounds good and I look forward to your review!

Patience is not a general thing: some have patience to craft a lace object, but not to do other things. And the other way around. Motivation, or lack of it, is key. :)

Very pretty lace, Joy. The framing really sets is off well, too. The blue background makes the lace's details pop.

As to what I'm reading, Churchill's HISTORY OF THE ENGLISH SPEAKING PEOPLES.

Happy Blue Monday...

XO,

Sheila :-)
