Christmasstar, I hope your sunburn heals fast!

HMG, Happy Birthday to Molly! I passed a Barnes & Noble store on the way home yesterday, sigh. Enjoy your browsing!!!

Irishsnow, good to see you!

Seawaters, To Kill a Mockingbird is a great book! Can you believe that I read it for the first time last year?

Good evening, MMC!

Last night's sky watching yielded zero shooting stars and it looks like tonight's total will be zero, too, as it is very overcast right now. There are thunderstorms in the forecast for later tonight/early morning. I started Gone Girl this morning and am almost a third of the way through. The library only had the large print edition - so much easier to read! Not much else is going on here - just did a lot of chores when I wasn't reading or being harassed by Palmer . My tomatoes are starting to ripen - finally! The apples, peaches and pears will be ready in a week or so - I will be so busy in the next weeks with canning and prepping for freezing. Grapes will be ready early next month - there are more this year than any year I can recall! I don't have the set-up to make wine so I am going to make grape ketchup - a recipe I found in an older cookbook. Sounds interesting!

Goodnight and MERRY dreams!!!
