Despite my work and traveling schedule, I have managed to finish a few books:
One For The Money by Janet Evanovich (as always - great - the first in the series of Stephanie Plum, bounty hunter.)

A Year In The Merde by Stephen Clarke (comical insights of the cultural differences between French and British).

Out to Pasture: But Not Over The Hill by Effie Leland Wilder (this author wrote her first novel at 80!!!!)

I returned to the library the book I had started about Edith Piaf. The book was very long and I would probably have to renew it several times, so I decided to check it out later when I can do it justice.

I am reading several books right now. One is "Atop An Underwood" which are edited writings from Jack Kerouac.

I had borrowed James Lee Burke's latest ("The Tin Roof Blowdown") from the library, but had only started it and it was due back. Someone had put a hold on it so I couldn't renew it. I just ordered my own copy from Amazon.

I have been so busy during the past week. I am not the best housekeeper and I have been on a cleaning and organizing and tossing spree lately. Ok -- we have company this month - so there is an impetus. Maybe I will turn over a new leaf!

Two words - Dust Shield. You get it at Home Depot. It keeps the dust away for a long, long time. I'm with you - I hate to clean. After Shelby goes back to school, I'm going to do a deep cleaning of the house. Not looking forward to it at all!

I only do it when I feel an urge for some exercise..sweeping mainly, whichi is now Tabu, since you're just blowing the dust around.
