Remember how my tomatoes were not off to a great start? Well, Paul's racing season isn't either....
Memorial Day weekend was busy with racing events at Lebanon Valley Dragway. Buick Day was on Saturday and then Musclepalooza was on Sunday. Paul's car just wasn't feeling it. All the work he put into it over the winter, only to have problems.

In Knitting News:
I'm almost done with my Lintilla...
I love it! It's asymmetrical. You can see on the left hand side that the ruffle is now starting to go up the length of the stripe instead of at the ends of the stripes. This is more of a scarf to be wrapped around the neck (as the picture in the link shows) -- not a shawl-y type thing.
Then it will be on to two more new projects for classes to teach in the summer. Stay tuned....
In Home Improvement News:
Memorial Day was really hot. So we decided to rip up the carpet in our living room/dining room area. Perfect hot weather project, right?????

In Book News:
I finished Mockingjay (The Hunger Games, Book 3). To repeat, it wasn't my favorite of the 3 but I still enjoyed it a lot. But I didn't like the ending. Paul said he thought I would like it. Hmmmm.
Now I'm on to 212: A Novel (Ellie Hatcher) by Alafair Burke. My mom told me about it because it was free on the Nook! It's 99 cents for the kindle. (that link up there is for the hard copy in Amazon). Alafair is the daughter of writer James Lee Burke, whose books I enjoy as well. Both write mystery-suspense and I'm enjoying this one so far -- it keeps you on your toes, jumping from scene to scene and leaving you hanging in the meantime, wondering what's coming when you get back to that scene. Love that kind of book! Anyone else like those? Anyone ever read these authors?
