I finished The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. I think it had some creative moments and I am not sure if because I listened to the last part of it while I was driving or if was just my squirrel brain but I kept getting lost- who are we talking about and where are they??? I did like the premise and the ending was fitting. This last week I got the chance to paint a couple of days. I have also been cutting and cutting paper prepping for the plywood people… I missed a week 0f blogging and I have been working on a bunch of stuff. I am finding it hard to keep up with no internet service down here. I also read Jodi Picoult’s Novella Larger Than Life . I love her work and this is another great short story about a person and love and elephants.
Peace Out-Until next week- Becky
