Ok… we are in the heat of summer now.

My air conditioner iced over we had it on so long! Off with the air, on with the fans!

On a great note my science project is to grow plants. It’s totally fun to see these guys emerge from seeds… little baby seedlings! Sadly the mixture was just a bunch of weeds, grass, and a few plants like morning glory that grow very fast! I don’t have much of a garden so I’m debating on spreading the morning glory out under the main tree in our yard. Maybe they’ll take hold! I’ve always wanted Ivy there but it’s just too temperamental and way too hot and sunny here for Ivy to be happy.

Anyhow! Book club this week! Finished reading The Other Boleyn Girl. Oh my … I don’t think I’ve cringed so much in my life. The whole review will be up this week but I’m really excited because this is MY month to choose a book!

I was thinking since The Giver is coming out soon that we could do that and we always choose a second book because we all really like to read so I am shooting for something a bit different. All look and sound so good! The Care and Management of Lies might be a bit heavy after reading a dystopian though…

I’m in between the below three.

What do you guys think!? Or… do you have any suggestions!? 😉

      Oh yall are serious readers.lol My in person book club is a romance based one and oh it’s a riot. We’re so bad about actually getting the reading done in time too. ::snort::

      Morning glories would be gorgeous if they take. I have ivy here and oh my word. It’s pretty but you really really have to stay on it or it takes over the entire yard. Quick! It’s amazing to see.

        It’s funny you say that! My Mother-in-law didn’t finish! And I chose the Goldfinch which is 771 pages along with The Giver which is like 179 or so so she’s going to be in serious trouble this month! We do have fun with it though. And we all read different stuff so it is really fun to see what all of our ideas are.

        So far the morning glories are doing great! The problem now is figuring out if I want to transplant them into the yard. Louisiana soil is atrocious. I cannot get anything to grow here. 🙁

        I think I mainly cringe because I knew what was going to happen. Anne stopped at nothing to get what she wanted. I knew she was making her bed but I didn’t realize just HOW conniving she really was.And just how mean she was to everyone around her. It was amazing and I definitely recommend but yes there are some cringe worthy moments!

        I’ll have to check that out! I have yet to read her stuff but from the looks of it I think I would enjoy.

      • Christina

        Kimba, I think you would really enjoy it. It was amazing. Full review Tuesday but seriously, I recommend that read to anyone who likes drama with their romance. Definitely reading the Giver along with Goldfinch. I’m really excited!

      • Christina

        HA! Probably. I had some moments where I was just like… WHAT?!! It was great though. Interesting but great!
