A Promise to Remember & Scenic Sunday

Another vacation comes to an end.  It was a mostly lazy one and I loved it.  No spring cleaning got done, no porch painting, no baking.  But I did manage to keep up with NaPoWriMo (National Poetry Writing Month). I have to write 30 poems in 30 days.  And I'm enjoying the online photography workshop I'm participating in called Picture Spring.  Reading?  Some but not as much as I'd hoped.

We visited our son about 3 hours south of us for two nights and that was a nice getaway.  Here's the gorgeous view I had while sitting on his deck reading:
You can see more scenic photos at Scenic Sunday.

I have to confess that I skimmed through the second half of this book.  It was just too....gag-me sweet!  It sounded good.  Two mothers struggle to accept the deaths of their teenage sons who  are killed in a head-on collision when one boy drinks and drives.  The struggling, single mom of the innocent boy sues the rich parents of the responsible boy.  Sounds like good fireworks, right?

Nope!  Everyone gets all mushy and finds religion and, oh...I'm so glad to be done with it!

Thankfully, it was a freebie for my Kindle from Amazon.

I've moved on to The Girl Who Played with Fire by Stieg Larsson and it's so much better!

Back to school tomorrow for seven and a half weeks until summer!  Can't wait to sit on the beach and read!
