This is about the time of day when I’d be posting pictures of a workshop in progress, or of some scenic site along a roadway, or pictures of antique mall visits or early morning walk jogs.
I’m home. I’m pressing and cutting and kitting up.
I’m printing invoices and mailing labels.
I. WASHED. WINDOWS!
None of which is even slightly entertaining enough to show photos of ---
I just stopped my manic bouts of housekeeping for a bite of lunch and to do an email check, a bit of surfing ((As a reward to myself, because I can do that!!)) and found this book free on Amazon.
Love Unlisted: A Novel by Stephanie Haddad has received an average user rating of 4 out of 5 stars based on 18 customer reviews.
Grace Shields keeps her hectic life manageable one way and one way only: she makes lists, lots of them. Lists of her favorite Jackie Chan movies. Lists of her boyfriend’s Pros and Cons. Lists about her favorite places to get a pizza.
To Grace, each one is a very serious matter. And that’s why no one ever reads the lists. Well, no one except for a few people who got a hold of them by accident…
1. Her best friend Bernsie, who understands the lists might be the only thing keeping Grace out of an asylum;
2. A child psychologist she was forced to see after her father passed away and the listing become more than just a hobby;
3. A very-nearly-almost fiancé who left Grace because of the lists.
Now, as Grace struggles to deal with a career that’s getting away from her and the frustration of living with her brother George, the lists are all she can do to cope.
Enter Colin Kilbourne, a free-spirited musician with a knack for ruffling Grace’s pristine feathers. And spilling coffee on her favorite work clothes.
Immediately drawn to his carefree, stress-free attitude, Grace knows they’d be mismatched in every possible way. But that mischievous charm is hard to resist.
What’s a girl to do when the lists tell you to do one thing and your hearts tells you another?
Are you a list maker? I am! I have post it notes and papers stuck all around my desk. I have notes pinned to the quilts on the walls…half the stuff I can’t even remember what the note was for when I first wrote it ----THAT’s what pulled me in to wanting to read this book!
It’s a short one, only 228 pages, and should be a cute read!
And with that, the dryer beeps and more domesticity calls -----
Enjoy your afternoon!
