Cottage Happenings

Summer has finally arrived here in Northeast Ohio and with quite a kick I might add.  Temperatures have soured into the low 90's and it seems as though we've been under one storm warning after another.  Needless to say our adventures in home remodeling and painting have come to a halt until cooler weather.

Although it's too hot and humid to do any painting, it's the perfect weather for reading!  And what better way to start the summer than with a Reading Challenge!  Book Chick City is hosting yet another challenge, The 2011 Summer Romance Challenge.  This challenge will last from June 1st through September 30th with a minimum reading requirement of eight books.  For more details and to sign-up for this fun summer challenge, simply click the banner:






And the first book on my reading list for this challenge will be The Mistress's Revenge by Tamar Cohen..sounds intriguing doesn't it?

  6. I love to read too and it might be nice to read some romance novels for a change. Reading is so much more fun than painting anyway :)

  16. I agree, it's too hot to any hard labor. It's been hot & dry in South Florida.
