LOVE My New Toy

Eon - Greg Bear

Eon Eon by Greg Bear

My review

rating: 3 of 5 stars
Familiar concept. I feel that I've read a similar book. A asteroid appears in Earth's orbit. Strangely, there is a world inside, includeing The Way. An infinate corridor to...who knows. Interesting Sci-fi.

The House at Riverton - Kate Morton

The House at Riverton The House at Riverton by Kate Morton

My review

rating: 4 of 5 stars
Book Group Selection. Reminiscent of the movie Titanic except it was done well. Aged woman looking back on her life as a maid to a wealthy family in the early part of the 20th century. Mystery, love story, historical novel all wrapped up into one.

Visit from the kids.

Silly mannnequin pose.


It's not what you think.

We got lost

We got lost on the way to a funeral, but found a couple minutes to take some pics.

In the yard...

Grand Floral Walk

Pat and I decided to take part in the Grand Floral Walk last Saturday. It is a 4 mile event that takes place immediately preceding the Grand Floral Parade during the Rose Festival.

The day started out rainy, but turned out to be a nice cool day for a walk. All in all, the 4 mile walk was closer to 9 miles with all the walked pre and post walk. There were some fun costumes along the way, too.
