Life After Betty

Now that we've reviewed all the books in the canon, Betty Keira and I both have a little more time for discretionary reading - and other things. 

Betty Keira loaned me several Essie Summers books when I was down at her place last month.  I just set them aside - I wanted to wait until I was completely done with my reviews (heaven knows I've had plenty of other distractions lately), so I've been working my way through them whenever I need a break.  Here's the complete list of what I borrowed:
  • Beyond the Foothills
  • The Tender Leaves
  • A Mountain for Luenda
  • Goblin Hill
  • Return to Dragonshill
  • Heir to Windrush Hill
  • The Bay of the Nightingales
  • The Lake of the Kingfisher
  • The House on Gregor's Brae
  • A Touch of Magic
I also picked up Crocodile on the Sandbank by Elizabeth Peters, on the recommendation of my daughter-in-law's mother.

What are you reading?

And now all I had to do is keep it clean...

Besides reading, I've been redecorating the office that I share with Dr. van der Stevejinck.  We took a boatload of crap stuff out, and I'm carefully editing what comes back in.  Dr. van der Stevejinck has a proper desk in the opposite corner, mine (as you can probably tell) is a reclaimed closet space. I've managed to  pare down what's around my space, but I did include embroidery supplies (now that I don't have as much time with The Great Betty, I'll have a chance to do a little the Araminta that I am), and my painting supplies (Ha! I bet I fooled you into thinking that I'm artistic).

Stay tuned for my amateurish attempts
at embroidery.
What are you doing with your spare time?
