I have been reading the Mrs. Malory series by Hazel Holt and enjoying it so much I dread finishing & hsving to find new.

this "new" blog form is just not working for me & I just may give up -- we'll see.

Got it!

Jubilee Withdrawal and a gripe

Enjoyed every minute of the Jubilee. Wanted to post a photo of the Globe Thistle from my garden – we saw it at Hampton Court . I made it an addition to my garden, but it never was as large as the Queen's, but then I didn’t have the Queen’s gardener either. But, this new version of blog is creating a problem for me – says my browser is no longer supported by Blogger. Does that mean I’m going to be forced to buy a new computer in order to have a blog?
Can’t say I appreciate that approach to fixing the economy. 
And how do I adjust the type & color on this thing? or add photos? I hate it when they change things that work just fine -- grrrr..........

it's been some time

since my last post.  didn't realize so much time had passed. 
haven't done any quilting recently.  watching the Queen's Jublee -- when she became Queen, I had a British pen pal who sent me a corenation mug -- the start of my mugs-from-places-we-went collection.

It's been a month since my last post!  no idea how that much time has passed.  too much focus on yucky stuff like taxes. 

Mother's Day Murder (Lucy Stone, Book 15)have read all of the Lucy Stone series by Leslie Meier. 

currently reading Agony of the Leaves by Laura Childs, another series I follow. 

Goldie is doing his Spring Shed -- why? I wonder -- he's an indoor cat; sitting at the screen door a few hours during a warm day is his closest to experiencing outdoors.

in the garden the white lilac is in bloom.

Memories Teased

I'm reading Victoria Houston's series set in Loon Lake, Wisconsin.
Dead Angler book cover

A very enjoyable cozy (although it has neither quilts nor cats). it had me pleasantly drifting toward sleep when .....wham!  one simple word sparked so many warm memories of a grandmother with a German heritage.


It's German for "stupid" -- never used to describe another, but rather in the "I am/was a dumhof" when I did that.

oh, compensating for the lack of cats & quilts, one of the main characters is a female Chief of Police.

Current Cozy Setting

Shropshire Union Canal, England -- Water Like a Stone by Deborah Crombie.  I'm gorging on all the Kincaid & Gemma not-yet-reads. 

(photo source info lost)
I've seen these -- part of the canal system, on a London tour ages ago.
