So, there has been some sewing around here. Promise. But I have come down with a nasty cold thanks to my youngest. I didn't even make it to work today. I think I have slept more in the last 24 hours than before my children were born. Even with all this sleeping, I have managed to read The Help. The whole thing. In 2 days.
Now let me tell you, I wasn't planning on reading this book. It has been number 1 on my Kindle list since I got it and that, usually for me, is a sign to stay away. But a very good friend of mine told me that it had to be read. And so I downloaded it. It took me exactly 3 pages before I couldn't put it down. It is a beyond amazing book. It is so so good. Really.
I even called my mother, made her promise me she'd do me a favour, and then told her she had to go to our local bookstore and get the book THAT SAME DAY! And she did. (No review from my mama yet).
I promise that if I feel like I belong in the world of the living tomorrow, I'll post some 9 patch squares of Kei goodness.
PS - I also read the whole Percy Jackson and the Olympians series with my oldest. All 5 books in two weeks (that kid reads fast). That series is fabulous.
PPS - Not to be outdone by his older brother, my youngest and I also made our way through 3 Magic Tree House books.
PPPS - For the record, a lot of reading goes down in this family. I LOVE it.
