Saturday morning I had a sore throat, but then it disappeared during the day. Then Saturday night it came back, along with that achy feeling you get when you’re starting to get sick. So I started in on the Zicam, and all through yesterday, feeling rather under-the-weather and lounging around, catching up on my reading, I kept it up every four hours. Today I feel better, but weak. I was hoping to get my hair cut, but I’ve just found out that my regular lady is out till the end of the month. So…I wait, staying home today with no excuse but to work on my WIP, catch up with my blogging friends, and maybe read a little more. Not such a bad existence…

I finished two books this weekend that I would recommend. Garden Spells was a Barnes & Noble selection of some sort, and the idea of it–a family with a magical garden intrigued me, so I had to check it out (literally, from the library). I enjoyed it, particularly the author’s handling of so many unique and memorable characters. The other I had purchased on Amazon after stumbling over the book, reading all the rave five-star reviews, and wondering why on earth I’d never heard of NYT Bestselling Author Eva Ibbotson. The Countess Below Stairs was an absolutely lovely read, and it comes highly recommended.

  1. Glad you’re feeling better. It’s hard to work when your body is achy. Reading. Sounds like the perfect thing to do.

    Thanks for recommending the books. I hadn’t heard of those.

  2. I wasn’t going to buy anymore books, but the cover on this was just so breathtaking & sparkly, oh well, I guess I’ll have to “check it out”

  3. I need to get MY hair cut! (the picture you saw was from MUCH earlier in the summer…)
    That book looks fantastic. I have too many books I want to read!
