I hope you have all enjoyed a wonderful weekend.
After a few days of warmer weather and sunshine, the rain has returned to the coast.
It is also colder than usual for this time of year. Or at least it seems that way but I'm sure it will warm up again before the month is over.
Although the gardening season is now over, I am still enjoying some colour in the container garden. I haven't looked after the garden since about the middle of August & I am amazed it has done as well. I guess it is all the rain we've had. Once the season is well and truly over, I will be cleaning all the garden debris in preparation for Winter.
This past weekend I enjoyed completing the 3 books I posted about last time. I can now add those to my annual tally. I'm still 2 books behind schedule.
Right now I'll focus on reading a very cute children's book about Dr. Doolittle by Hugh Lofting. It was written in the 1920s. I never learned about Dr. Doolittle as a child and I never did see any of the Dr,. Doolittle movies. I'm reading it now to assess suitability for sending to the boys I sponsor in Africa through Compassion International Canada.
The earlier book I previewed was too violent and very sad. I didn't want to send that to young boys in Africa who already lead challenging lives. I'm also limited as to what I can send because the books can't be too costly. They have to be taken apart and shipped in sections as well as meet criteria of thickness and dimension.
I'm also reading Alexander McCall Smith's, The Saturday Big Tent Wedding Party and making progress on the book, Sweet Dreams by Dave Stewart of the Eurythmics. I started the latter some time back but am only just now making progress.
Have a wonderful week ahead.
Linking up with Our World Tuesday.
Thank you for stopped by!
