The weather is beautiful; wish you were here :-)

Hello from the Beach!!!

As our family has always said, "A bad day at the beach is better than a good day at work."

It certainly hasn't been bad at the beach although we've had some cooler-than-normal temps. That combined with the wind has made it a bit chilly in the mornings. That's OK . . . we are at the beach. B L I S S !

I would love to share pics, but that will probably wait until I'm at home. I'm not used to using SewDaddy's laptop and hate to spend precious vacation time trying to figure out how to get pics off the camera onto the laptop so that I can post here. I guess the suspense will keep everyone tuning in! ;-)

I'll also share about my beach-read, which was wonderful!!! I finished it in about 3 days and was anxious to start my 2nd book.

The 2nd book, was not so good. Really . . . dropping the "f-bomb" about a dozen times in the first chapter is NOT necessary. I'm not a prude, but if an author cannot come up with another word and uses "that" word continuous, she is not a very good author, IMHO. I even ventured into the 2nd chapter; hoping that it would get better. NOT. Pitiful. I abandoned my 2nd beach book. :-(

All in all, it's been a great week so far; bringing needed rest & relaxation to the Gracious family. I have been checking email & Etsy occasionally. Thanks to all who have shopped with me on Etsy and the Website while I'm away! :-)

PS . . . THANK YOU, AMERICA!!! You did not vote for Kristy Lee Cook and she is finally going HOME from American Idol! The 2 Davids were by far the best this week!

Don't you hate the f-bomb trick! It's always a deal breaker for me. It sounds like you had a wonderful time at the beach.
