My test of a good novel is dreading to begin the last chapter. -Thomas Helm

After Friday’s news I had a rather busy (and slightly emotional) weekend. I’ve been feeling a little defeated as of late (more so now with this whole job thing) and it’s been difficult to not think about everything that is going on. I know that this will work out alright; as my Mum and I always say “We’ll figure it out”.
I had a mini heart attack on Saturday after the movers finished unloading and had left; I could not find my box of Nancy Drew books anywhere! I had started unpacking the den by putting all of my books on their shelves and had left a shelf open for the Nancy Drew ones (Lucy Maud Montgomery also gets her own set of shelves); I could only find one book! I opened every box in the den, couldn’t find them, and was on the verge of freaking out when Alex found them (yay Alex!). Apparently I had put them all in the box and then put a couple of DVDs on top since there was a little space. When the movers brought in the box I took a peak in the top, assumed it was all DVDs, and put the box on the DVD shelf to be dealt with later. I am so happy that they weren’t actually missing – I’m sure I would have cried.
I finished The Friday Night Knitting Club last night and have now started What-the-Dickens by Gregory Maguire. I love Gregory Maguire, but this book (while entertaining) is just not doing it for me. I will finish it and hopefully I’ll like it more by the time I do. I really, really liked The Friday Night Knitting Club. It was a pretty easy read, which was really nice actually, and the characters were very real. All of the women were different from each other but all were able to bond and become friends. It was just a very nice book and I think I’ll read it again. I even cried at the end (damn Kate Jacobs pulling at my heart strings!) while sitting in the Muskoka chair out back.
I haven’t been showing any crafty pictures lately because I’m working on that top-secret wedding gift I mentioned for my High School best friend. It’s going to take awhile, but I will definitely post pictures after it’s done. Maybe I’ll be able to squeeze in a couple of small projects while working on this one.
I have big plans to take pictures of some more of my early edition Lucy Maud Montgomery books to post for tomorrow (or so I think). I’m hoping I’ll be able to; I’m also praying for some good light and steady hands on the camera as well!

 P.S. Have you seen this cover for the new Lucy Maud Montgomery biography that is coming out in September (I believe); isn't it fantastic? I really think they need to make a print of the cover to sell - I'd love to own it!
