I'm baaaaaaack!

Or did you even notice I was gone? Stinker.

Really, I haven't been anywhere but here, although I haven't posted in a few days. Life just gets busy, you know? And we weren't up to anything out of the ordinary, other than my sweet man turning the big 4-0 (merciful heavens!), but it was just enough regular old ordinary everyday stuff to keep me busy and away from posting. (Notice I said away from posting, not away from Google Reader, of course.) I've been busier than a cranberry merchant (as my great-grandmother used to say, which, by the way, I'm not entirely sure exactly how busy that would truly be) with laundry, cleaning, reading, and playing with my boy who has a two-week break between the summer session of Mother's Day Out and the fall session of his new preschool. Oh, and sewing. This little procrastinator is trying her darndest to change her ways and actually get a project started earlier than a day or two before its deadline. I'm proud to tell you that I am already about halfway finished with my fall sassy apron for the fall sassy apron swap, and it is turning out terribly cute, if I do say so myself.

I've also been reading a lot more lately. I'm already quite the avid reader, but lately there haven't been too many books to get me excited. Until now. (And, before we go any further, no, I haven't yet read the Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer.)

It started with this book, the first in the series, and one I had seen recommended on someone's blog, although I can't remember for the life of me which blog that was. Sorry about that.

Most excellent, it was. I'm guessing that this series of books would satisfy any of you Twilight fans out there since it is also about supernatural powers and such.

And now I am knee-deep into the second one:

I must tell you that these books are actually listed under the heading of "young adult" fiction, haha, but I'm glad I didn't let that stop me from devouring them so far. I have even done my best to not skip ahead and skim to the end, like I sometimes do when I am dying to know what happens and how it all ends.

After I finish this one, I will be able to move on to the last one:

So what are you waiting for? Go out and get these books. Pronto!

As for me, I'm off to check some more things off my list...

Welcome back! I know this feeling, I get so behind sometimes. Glad you are getting some reading done.

Oh, I'll have to check these out. I got started on the twilight series (I'm on the 3rd one now) and it wasn't until I went to buy the 3rd and 4th books that I realized they were also "young adult" LOL.
