I enjoyed this book immensely! I loved the parallel time lines and all of the characters….and the mystery was a woven beautifully into the story. The discussion however varied a little more than normal. Something happened…. a moment of animosity over discussion questions? I was on the other side of the table so I am still not sure?
I will say that our little book club crasher was full of enthusiasm….it was refreshing. She was so happy to have new non couple friends…..that concept is very foreign to me….it was very cute. I think because she is a professor and her husband is a math professor, my guess (pure speculation) is that her life has been a little dry and very proper…..no wonder she loves us. She said she doesn’t read fiction and she loved this book so much that she bought all of the authors books and read the book club one twice. She is a nice addition if I didn’t already say that. Definitely a keeper!
When SB and I were at the craft/artisan show on Sunday we had a fried tomato bacon sandwich…it was summer heaven! Tonight I fried up some bacon and in the bacon grease (I think that may be the secret) I fried a big green tomato from my garden. I packed it for my lunch tomorrow, I really hope that it is as good cold as it was warm. Bread, bacon, and lightly breaded green tomato makes a hell of a sandwich!
My daughter dragged me off to the movie store, so I picked a few classics for her to watch. This is always a challenge, tonight we are watching this one. She isn’t complaining too bad…yet.
I survived two days of work already this week. I almost cried today but I was able to hold back the tears. SB encouraged me to stick it out….if they fire me, I will make on unemployment what I would at a new job. I have to thicken my skin…..I am trying….Zia
