I had a wonderful day out with one of my girlfriends on Saturday. We shared lots of laughter, ate yummy food, did a bit of shopping and even got to see Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day.
I loved the book and the movie didn’t disappoint. It was so cute, and sure there were some notable differences between book and movie, but I think the film captured the spirit of the book. I highly recommend both book and film.
On the bookish front, I was gifted with a signed copy of Clare Dunkle’s latest book, The Sky Inside. Here’s a blurb on the book: Every year a new generation of genetically-engineered children is shipped out to meet their parents. Every spring the residents of his town take down the snow they’ve stuck to their windows and put up flowers. Every morning his family gathers around their television and votes, like everyone else, for whatever matter of national importance the president has on the table. Today, it is the color of his drapes. It’s business as usual under the protective dome of suburb HM1. And it’s all about to come crashing down.
That sounds good doesn’t it? I may have to include this one for my Once Upon a Time Challenge reads.
If that wasn’t enough, I also won a book from Joy! Thank you Joy.
So a lot of fun but now it’s back to work on my beaded journals. I spent quite a bit of time sewing today so now I think I’m going to go curl up with one of my books. I’m in the middle of a couple of great books but I’ll tell you more about those tomorrow.
