The adventure of Macey and the fire that happened 40 years ago. Macey is only 15 years old!Hi everyone!
Wow, I just can’t believe it is August and we are through, we can’t deny it. It is the second week and almost over. I have not blogged for almost two or three weeks, and I have not gotten even time to check my reader to see what my fellow bloggers been up to and to leave them a little note in their comments box. I did not forget about you lot, my days have been hectic, busy, and tough. I couldn’t spoil my early mornings, since I go jogging down the river. After then, the day took its toll, packing up, sewing, crafting. And since packing up is not my kind of tides, I am having some back aches. I am at all four corners of my little fabric world. One minute packing, the other minute sewing and then cooking, and back packing again, I am all over the place and I don’t seem to know what I am doing.Much of, we have been keeping very healthy with lots of vegetables which have been on the menu most days and with plenty of sleeps. The temperature has changed, gone a bit cooler, with wonderful sunshine, but kind of still good to go out there and enjoy a good walk. And not to forget we had plenty of rain. But I did manage to go out and do my usual home weekly shopping.Luckily, I received some samples of “linen fabrics” from India. Thought it would be in a file all tidied up, but I experienced they did it in another way. It is my first experience buying fabrics from India. But I did not mind since as long as I could see and feel the fabric, I love most of them and the colours are what I am looking for and will be sending my orders by next week.
Some days ago while packing up and giving away things to the Charity Shops, I came across a very old clock that I kept in a drawer many years ago. It was as old as you can see in the picture. I received this clock from “Elodie,” who was my one and only neighbour, kind of like an adopted mother. We were friends for more than 15 years (I have a story written about her which will come to my blog soon). Well I have kept the clock since it is so emotional and one of my greatest keepsake forever. Old as it is, still it works its best.And with all those tough days I have been having, my internet was not working properly. Two engineers sent on two different occasions, and still after they left, my internet went bust. Called back my net-work, and a third engineer happened to be. Since then my internet has been a darling and is working just as fine and how I wanted it to be. Bless me!With all the rough days, I was able to fix myself up and I have been able to get some time to read my book every night before I sleep. And guess, my title is “Burning Up” – by Caroline B. Cooney and here it goes – “Macey has been living in the same town all her life. She is fifteen. Everything was easy. Not anymore.
A secret from the past is about to explode into her life. A secret no one will discuss. Forty years ago there was a fire across the road from her grandparents. A fire which never quite died down and a man were driven out of town never to return.
The stench of smoke is everywhere. Someone has set Macey’s world on fire. Does she really want to know the truth?”
And last night I reached that part of the story where Macey asked her friend’s grandmother about the fire. I was craving last night to read that chapter, but my eyes were calling for some sleep, too tired I closed the book and to continue today. I am anxious to learn more of Macey and the fire – haha!Well my sweet friends, I wish I had some more vibes to tell you. Well I will love you and leave you. Hoping to come back so quickly. Wish you all a warm and wonderful weekend!Words and pictures are mine
