It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (July 31): 07/31/17
The work on the old house is almost done. We might get it on the market it by next weekend and have our first open house on August 6th. The ceilings are done. Painting is finishing up today. Tuesday new appliances. Friday the place gets cleaned. Saturday it's staged.
Last week I also started my new job. I'm a an art instructor at a local art gallery. They run summer art camps for children. They also do weekend art parties and free art lessons on alternating Saturdays. Last week I helped with the masks and sculptures camp.

Those masks look wonderful, kudos to you and the children. Looks like you had a good reading week too.

My role was a minor one — cutting things, helpping glue things, drawing shapes. But it was a fun week — a good distraction from the move.

Those masks look awesome.

The kids did a great job.

Good job getting the house ready.
Those books look tempting...especially the Cleo Coyle book and the Kinsella.
Thanks for sharing, and for visiting my blog.

The Coyle and Kinsella books were both entertaining.

It seems just as we're getting optimistic we hit another snag. I don't know what I'll have to report about next week.

I'll be eager to hear what you think of Zeroes. I had it and read the first few pages but then set it aside and haven't ever gotten back to it. Come see my week here. Have a great week!
Comment #10: Monday, July 31, 2017 at 16:57:00
I've read the first hundred pages of Zeroes on my son's recommendation. So far I am enjoying it and I'm finding it a pretty easy read.

Haven't read these Hillerman and Coyle books, as yet. Nice carpet and ceiling!
Comment #12: Monday, July 31, 2017 at 19:27:00
Anne Hillerman has surpassed her father with characterization and plotting. The Coyle books are good but sometimes go on a bit too much about coffee.

Congrats on the new job! And hope everything goes well with your selling the house. Sounds like you're busy busy busy!

We're struggling right now to get it ready to go on market. It's very frustrating.
Comment #15: Tuesday, August 01, 2017 at 07:49:42
The Lorna Barnett book sounds interesting- I haven't heard of the series though.
Comment #16: Tuesday, August 01, 2017 at 19:29:00
I am enjoying the Booktown mystery series but I'm a little sad that the audiobooks changed publishers, and therefore narrators.
Comment #17: Tuesday, August 01, 2017 at 08:52:42
What an exciting time for you and your family. A new home is always so special. Have a great week.
Comment #18: Tuesday, August 01, 2017 at 19:32:00
Right now it's more frustrating than special. Maybe later this month I'll be in better spirits.

Fifteen Dogs looks interesting. Thanks for sharing it and the others.
Comment #20: Wednesday, August 02, 2017 at 16:48:00
I will be starting Fifteen Dogs soon because it's an interlibrary loan with no renewal.

The old house is looking good....good luck on putting it on the market!
Comment #22: Wednesday, August 02, 2017 at 16:50:00
Thanks. It's taking longer than either of us would have liked. We're eager to move onto the fun bit — selecting a new home.
