Wow, these Mondays roll around very quickly. This week I don't have anything
around the house to share with your for Blue Monday at Smiling Sallys blog but
a couple pictures that I use as screen savers.. I love the pretty blue sky in
both of them. I am totally ready for spring. Last week I had a flu or virus
and was aching terribly all over my body. I also join Sheila for What are you reading Monday at One Person's Journey thru Books.
This week with being sick I didn't get a lot of reading in, mainly just moaning
and groaning..but I did finish

Wench by Dolen Perkins Valdez
Tawawa House in many respects is like any other American resort before the Civil War. Situated in Ohio, this idyllic retreat is particularly nice in the summer when the Southern humidity is too much to bear. The main building, with its luxurious finishes, is loftier than the white cottages that flank it,but then again, the smaller structures are better positioned to catch any breeze that may come off the pond. And they provide more privacy, which best suits the needs of the Southern white men who vacation there every summer with their black, enslaved mistresses. It's their open secret. Lizzie, Reenie, and Sweet are regulars at Tawawa House. They have become friends over the years as they reunite and share developments in their own lives and on their respective plantations. They don't bother too much with questions of freedom, though the resort is situated in free territory-but when truth-telling Mawu comes to the resort and starts talking of running away, things change.
This one is one of Oprah's picks.
