The 3 A.M. Scholar

Well my day started way too early.  Dear Hubby and I were both awake at 2:30
a.m.  Yes, you read that right.  But 3 a.m. we gave up and got out of bed.  Since then I have put up the dinner dishes from last night, swept the house, started dinner for tonight in the crock pot, taken bacon out to thaw for breakfast, colored my hair and started a load of laundry.  So now what do I do for the whole day?

Oh I hate days like this.  I will have tons of time on my hands.  Maybe I can get to one of my big projects like sorting all my photographs into albums.  That would be a wonderful one to get out of the way.  Hopefully I can convince Dear Hubby to help me with this chore!  Then I can give all the picture frames I empty to The Other Mother.  Gosh, this has me hopeful already.  I also need to make up some more laundry soap.  This is what I think I am going to tackle first!

Well we are also having family over for dinner tonight.  So I want to see about making homemade bread or bisquits.  I am doing a bar-b-que roast in the crockpot.  That is so easy to do, just one lil ol roast and a bottle of bar-b-que sauce.  Cook forever and then shred.  I also imagine that I will roast the last pumpkin today to make the rest for pumpkin mash.  The mash will be used to make pumpkin bread later on.  Of course Granny M my steal this last pumpkin mash to make some more pumpkin butter.

What else?  Oh I want to also have a good long soak in the tub this afternoon before our guest arrive.  I already have planned to use some of my special soap.  Candles, music and start in on my newest book by Susan Meissner.  I read The Sound Among the Trees and now I have her latest book, The Girl in the Glass.  This time we are going to travel to Italy.  I sure have been doing a lot of traveling here lately with my books.  Hopefully we will also transcend time once again too.  In The Girl in the Glass, Meg travels to Italy to see what she has always dreamed of.  Hoping to arrive to her father, he is absent once again.  So instead a writer becomes Megs guide and mentor for her trip.  This leads her to learn more of the Italian Renaissance than she expected.  Much more and in a way that makes it all so real.

I love soaking in a tub with a good book in my hands.  Blogging for books is a wonderful way to get to do just that.  I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review. You can also get a copy for yourself here or read a portion for yourself here.  I do not know just what I ever did to become so blessed but I thank my luck stars that I have.  Books have always been my friends and method of escape.
