Need To Do This Need To Do That

The ironing can just wait,
The Quilt pieces will keep,
I'll write dust me on the dresser.
And sit or lay down and read.

I love this book, I don't want it to end.
I want it to end happy, it is part fiction 
and part true. It is basted on Nancy Turner's
great-grandmothers history of getting  to Arizona
and life on the ranch.
A must read first  is in the back  of the book 
So you will know the fiction, I didn't care , her
fictional husband was so much like some one I
know it was real to me.

This sounds like a great book, even the title attracts me.

I'm going to get that one this weekend! I read one last year called "Trials of the Earth," which was a diary set over about Sunflower/Greenwood/Parchman as they moved around keeping boarding houses, mostly for loggers or working-men, and sometimes just in tents in lumber camps, where she would feed fifty men three meals a day (200 biscuits before 5 a.m., off a stove in a TENT!) (That stove would also figure greatly in the Great Flood which overtook their camp).

I was simply fascinated by her determination and her resolve and way of looking at even the worst parts of life. (trying to imagine peeling all those potatoes gives me a headache).

Y'all stay SWEET, now!

Sounds like you are reading a good book. It is fun to get lost in one for sure. I am reading a Debbie Macomber Christmas "On A Snowy Night" right Maybe because it is so hot, I thought I could cool off reading about Christmas.
