eggplant...

We have had a relaxing, slow, and quiet weekend.

It has been very nice to just be at home. Cleaned the whole house
and washed all the clothes on Saturday.

Remember that eggplant we planted. Well it produced
these two little beauties...

and I made this Eggplant Parmesan on Saturday night.

We went to Barnes and Noble tonight. I found 4 books I want, but I think I am gonna check them out from the library first, and then if I want a copy of my own I will buy them.

The books are :

Blue Like Jazz by Donald Miller

Velvet Elvis by Rob Bell

Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers

Singer Simple Sewing Guide by Idontknowwho

I am overwhelmed by all that I want to do sometimes.

Sewing curtains. Making yo-yos. Reading the above books. Making cards. Scrapbooking. Creating a collage of pictures on our living room wall like the ones in Pottery Barn catalogs. Taking sewing classes. Planning a trip to Charleston.

When I get free time, I often waste it because I don't know what to do.

That just sounds ridiculous!

I gotta go to bed.

I don't know about that sewing book. but i do know about the other 3! they are my 3 favorite books and you DO want your own copies.. or borrow mine so you can write in them. they are GrEaT! velvet elvis is slow at first but the middle and end are awesome. blue like jazz... will rock your world. and redeeming love... is just wonderful. i hate fru fru girl novels. but this, this is incredible. probably more incredible for the 2 of us bc we've had our troubles with SGM. Go buy them now! or borrow them from me! i love you. call me
