My $.65 plate


Every Sunday, In Syracuse , NY, we have a flea market at the Regional Market. There are always hidden treasures and I have been lucky to find a few! This hand painted plate cost only $.65...that right, 65 CENTS!
Today I am having dinner for one out on the front porch. I am into a great book and each night after dinner, I plop myself on the love seat and read until dusk. So, tonight I can "read through dinner"!

My husband will be golfing, so I will have a quiet, simple dinner.
When I complete this book, I will have read all of Hilderbrand's books - and this one is GREAT!
All of her stories take place on the islands of Cape Cod and I truly live in each book as if I am there. These are great summer reads!
Sorry, there is no room to join me - and I wouldn't be great company with my nose in this book!

  1. I love Elin Hildebrand; I haven't read all of her books but have enjoyed the ones I have read. Right now I am reading Game Change about the 2008 elections, fascinating read. I'm about halfway through the book already. Busy working on another shawl, and I printed out enough new shawl patterns over the weekend to fill another binder. I'm hopeless!
