What I Do While the Paint Dries

The Help by Kathryn Stockett
 I painted my bedroom this week and  today I'm working on the master bath ~ pictures to follow. In between coats of paint I am feverishly reading The Help.  It's a good book but that's not why I'm in such a hurry to finish the 718 pages, oh my!  No.  You see,  I put it on hold at the public library three months ago and finally got it.  But I can only keep it two weeks because there are others in line waiting on me to finish it. So I've got to have it read by Saturday or else I have to ...oh, no! an overdue fine!  Ooh, how I hate overdue fines.  Well, gotta run, eat a quick lunch, read a few pages, and get back to painting.   


  1. Sounds like you need THe HelP chewing through the pages of that thick book! yikes!

    i love sinking my teeth into a good read....
    happy painting...and thanks so much for squeezing a visit in what with how busy you are!

    ciao bella

  2. I did the same thing this summer... requested the book and waited then had to read it in the two weeks. I did really like it, but I didn't get much else done during that time. :)

  3. Oh no!.. If it's in such demand, it must be GOOD!.. and it's the first time I've even heard of it!! I'm going to have to keep an eye open for this one! I'll keep my comment short, and wish you luck finishing it up before it's due back to the library!!! ~tina

  4. I really loved this book. I lent it to my daughter and haven't seen it come back yet! I hope you get it finished!


I'm so happy you're leaving me a comment! ~ Sherry
