The concert was outside and we had lawn seats. I had been watching the weather all week to see if it was going to rain at all and up until late in the week, it looked like the weather was going to be just fine. Unfortunately for us, the weather had other plans and it absolutely poured all day. By the time it was almost time for the concert, the rain was still spitting a little bit but it was mostly okay. We had a great time with a lot of dancing. It was a great concert to end the summer with.
This morning, I woke up and started doing some cooking to prepare for the week. I made banana ice cream, tropical granola, and cucumber chips. I was feeling industrious but unfortunately for me, I cut my finger pretty badly on a mandoline (ouch, those things are sharp)! Luckily, no stitches were necessary but my poor finger just bled and bled and bled. It really hurts! My pinky is probably going to have to be wrapped up for a good couple days. Hey, at least all of the food was tasty!
And then on to book news, I did want to let you all know that I am taking a part in Sherry Jones' street team. Jones is the author of such books as "White Heart" and "Four Sisters, All Queens." She has a really exciting book coming out in November called "The Sharp Hook of Love." You will want to check out her site where she is giving away copies of "White Heart!"
I also got some pretty good book mail this past week. As you all may know, I have absolutely loved Stephanie Thornton's historical fiction books! She is coming out with yet another book that looks absolutely fabulous. It's called "The Tiger Queens" and it is about the women of Genghis Khan (ooooo! ahhhhh!). Look at what my copy of the book came with:
How cute is that scroll?
Here's to making it a good week!
