Now that the summer is officially over, the kids are heading back to school. May we suggest one last shopping trip prior to their first day.

Franklin, the shy member of the family, loves his catnip.   A bit of the good stuff and Frankie’s in outer-space.  Luckily my camera has a catnip feature that captures what our human eyes can’t see.

Saturday morning we drove ourselves to Eneabba for a nice quiet, peaceful weekend retreat to the country.

I made a new friend in Bonnie, Brian and Tessa’s oldest dog as she discovered I had treats.  For the next few days I had a loyal (cupboard love) companion along side our little rascal Tessie.  I spent my first afternoon hiking and searching for wildflowers, with plenty of flies to keep me company.

Here are a few of the flowers:

101 Books

I expected to like this book more than I did.

I love the idea behind it. In the middle of the British occupation of India during the early 20th century, an Indian doctor is wrongly accused of sexually assaulting a British woman.

All hell breaks loose when the doctor goes on trial and the woman begins doubting her story. It’s a powerful novel that deals with issues of racism, class, and groupthink. Forster is a superb writer.

All of these things made me think I would, more than likely, love A Passage To India by the time I finished with it. But I don’t.

If I rated these novels on a scale of 1 to 10, then I would probably put it somewhere in the 5 to 6 range. At times, it moved me. At other times, I drifted off into wondering if I had set my fantasy football rosters yet.

It’s been a rough few months for Todd and I.  We seem to be living on the verge of economic catastrophe.   One more broken down car or one more bill and financially we’d be ruined.  Some things are a result of our failure and some completely out of our control.  But there’s a curve just up the road and we can’t see what’s beyond it.  It could lead us back to the land of the comfortable.  Tomorrow we may get a call from Jeep with news of complete warranty coverage.  Such a little thing could mean the world to us.  Of course it could be another rut, or deep pitfall.  Even in these hard economic times, we are lucky.  We have each other, a wonderful family, a great set of friends, and of all you.  And, we have hope.
