Friday Finds...


This meme is hosted by Should Be Reading.

The 3 Day Cleanse was a giveaway receipt from Vicki at Reading on the Beach. I haven't started to read it yet, just fear.I've been painting, and stripping and reupholstering to my hearts content, I'm sure I need a total cleanse from chemicals. Thank You Vicki.

The Bishops Man
I've been wanting to read this, not because of the subject matter, but because this is an award winning Canadian Author. I watched the interview of the nominee's for the Giller Prize and found him to be quite arrogant so I want to see what he's so proud of. (aren't I awful)




P.S. I think Friday Finds for me also must mean something else. I thought Friday Finds, would be something that you found out about yourself that you didn't know. I found for example that I'm not as patient as I think I am and I don't care. For example, I've been training my men to empty their pockets and turn their socks outside from being all rolled up, as my hand really hurts when I do this for 30 pairs of sock, and I really don't want to wash your I Pod in the machine, CHECK YOUR POCKETS! But today when I found all this stuff was not done, and my hand is already sore, and I don't have time to stand here and do this, I just tossed the items into another basket and I'm LEAVING THEM DIRTY. I'd never have done that before, but as it's Friday and I find I'm tired from a busy week and the weekend doesn't seem to suggest any relief, I've lost my patience.

mmm..tough Love, Irene...should work I think!

I once went on a little holiday (much needed) when the boys were still at high school (I did leave the the younger daughter with a friend), and talking to my son on the phone on the Sunday night, he announced he didn't have a clean uniform for school the next day. Amazing. Nothing I could do about it, and I didn't fret. Don't know that I ever asked what happened. The world didn't end obviously!

The book sounds very interesting!
