book worm and sarongs

Here's one sentence to describe me today: I am a book toting, sarong wearing slightly conventional woman. It's true. I'm back in to a reading phase and that means one thing; one book will not do. When I go to the library, they've got a little wagon reserved just for me to carry out all of my books :)) Here's a selected library review for you:

1. Kitchen by Banana Yoshimoto (If you don't know Banana, get yourself to the library NOW.)
2. Goodbye Tsugumi by Banana Yoshimoto
3. Slaughter House Five by Kurt Vonnegut (No need for introduction here)
4. Hocus Pocus by Kurt Vonnegut

I've also got books on CD and a big pile of books I own lined up.

I've owned sarongs in the past but I lost them in my last move. I bought 3 in San Diego and I have to say that this is a required summer garment for me. Incredibly versatile and perfect for this nasty heat wave. Make it a skirt or a dress...that's a lot of bang for the buck. In San Diego, I sat next to a woman at the beach who put elastic on hers and sewed it up. It made a fantastic strapless dress without the hassle of having to tie it up.

Today, I'm off to the Farmer's Market with my camera and my eye on some fresh produce. We've got a busy weekend ahead. It's my brother's 50th birthday and we are off to Maryland to toast the old geezer :)))) Thank God I'm still the baby of the family.


  1. Good choice in books. I wish I could wear a sarong
    but alas, I am too short,pudgy and boob heavy to carry it off.

  2. I learned about sarongs in Hawaii only there they call them something else. glad you found some in San Diego. hope your brother has a wonderful birthday

    peace and hugs
