It was a LONG week!


I got this really special award from my blogging/online/Flybaby/SCS friend Suzanne. She and I have a lot in common and this means a lot coming from her.

The rules for passing this award on: you must post the award on your blog, name the person who awarded you, then pass the award to 6 other bloggers and leave a message on their blog that they've received the award.

So, here are six blogs that I think Spread the Love about various things:

It was a horrible, long week. I am looking forward to resting some this weekend, going to auntie's for dinner, and working on sorting and filing a bunch of paperwork (not really looking forward to this!).

My "What I'm Reading" picture is out of date. I have finished the pictured book and the one that follows it in the series as well. Elswyth Thane's Williamsburg novels are so special to me; I love re-reading them time and again.

This is a series of seven (7) books tracing two families from the Revolution to the early days of World War II. They are historical romances and succeed really well in both areas. Thane is particularly brilliant at making you feel with the characters; as romances they are charming and emotional. As histories they are very well researched and do a great job of taking you into living a past time. They are not exactly "politically correct" for the 21st century, but I love them anyway. If you want to "meet" Francis Marion (The Swamp Fox) and Lafayette, Stonewall Jackson, Teddy Roosevelt and many other names you will recognize, check out these books. If you like historicals, you will be glad you did.

I'm off to see if I can put a few stitches into Beatrix Potter before my eyes completely shut down from exhaustion. Hope everyone has a great weekend full of crafting, reading, stitching and whatever else suits your fancy!

I am so very sorry that you are still having such rough times during the week....you so deserve to have a good week and a weekend where you can truly enjoy yourself rather than just try to recover to be ready for the new week coming.....

The award is so deserved. I am so glad you have the Follow Me thingy so I can follow you. I don't read much any more unless it's about a romantic stamp. Hee hee. Nice to know someone is stitching like they should! Feeling guilty here.
