Happy Monday...

Well it has started off to be a good day so far..my grandson has been in a good mood all day,,we went over to the neighbors house who is watching a couple of extra kids and he played for a couple of hours and now he is sound asleep..we have had a rough couple of days last week,,so I am praying that this week will go better..and I know it is the age..2yr olds can be trying at times..I have been crocheting,,I started another ripple..One for my grandson Anthony who lives in Arizona,,his birthday is next month and his mom requested I make one with cowboy colors(not the football team)so this is what I came up with..brown,beige,brick red,l blue,blue..

I have only done a couple more rows on my multi color one


,,I have been reading still and finish my Karen Marie Moning book which was another good one..and have started The French Gardener by Santa Monteriore, I am really liking it so far..
Synopsis A neglected garden. A cottage that holds a secret. A mysterious Frenchman (handsome, naturally). A family in need of some love. These elements are entwined in this heartwarming novel by the author reviewers consistently compare to Maeve Binchy and Rosamunde Pilcher. It begins as Miranda and David Claybourne move into a country house with a once-beautiful garden. But reality turns out to be very different from their dream. Soon the latent unhappiness in the family begins to come to the surface, isolating each family member in a bubble of resentment and loneliness. Then an enigmatic Frenchman arrives on their doorstep. With the wisdom of nature, he slowly begins to heal the past and the present. But who is he? When Miranda reads about his past in a diary she finds in the cottage by the garden, the whole family learns that a garden, like love itself, can restore the human spirit, not just season after season but generation after generation. Wise and winsome, poignant and powerfully moving, The French Gardener is a contemporary story told with an old-fashioned sensibility steeped in the importance of family and the magical power of love.
Well I hope you all have a blessed week,,till next time..
take care
Devon

The afghans are lovely, just takes time and preferably time that is relaxing and quiet. The book The French Gardener sounds good, I'll have to look for it in my book store.
